Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly has signed two memos for White House consideration on ramping up immigration enforcement, according to the Washington Post's David Nakamura. The next step is a review by the White House Counsel's Office, which is likely to request some changes.

The big details from the memos, per the Post:

  1. Expand the use of "expedited deportations" from 2 weeks after entry to 2 years.
  2. Return people apprehended at the border to Mexico, rather than housing them pending hearings.
  3. Allow prosecution of parents who pay smugglers to bring their children across the border.

What the memos didn't include: The National Guard "roundup" that was included in a memo published by the AP on Friday. A Homeland Security spokesman told Axios on Friday that Kelly had not even seen the details of such a plan.

What the memo doesn't change: DACA, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.

America's leaders are rethinking how they view Independence Day, as the country reckons with the historic, unequal treatment of people of color during a pandemic which has disproportionately affected nonwhite Americans.

Why it matters: The country’s legacy of racism has come into sharp focus in the weeks of protests following the death of George Floyd while in Minneapolis police custody. From Confederate statues to Mount Rushmore, Americans are reexamining the symbols and traditions they elevate and the history behind them.
