President Clinton announced that he has signed an executive directive to the heads of all executive departments instructing them to quickly expand and strengthen the program to reduce illegal immigration. The presidential directive is concentrated on four key areas: 1) protecting U.S. borders; 2) protecting the interests of the U.S. workers in the workplace; 3) removing more criminal aliens; and 4) providing more assistance to the states which are burdened with the problem of illegal immigration. The new policy will seek to increase those elements of Border Patrol strategy that are proving mose effective, including the use of helicopters, night scopes, and all-terrain vehicles. In addition, the president said he asked the members of the cabinet to create a national detention and removal plan to increase the identification and removal of deportable illegal aliens. close
