President Trump on Friday signed a memorandum ordering the end of “catch and release” immigration policy.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement that Trump signed the memo “to take important steps to end ‘catch and release,’ the dangerous practice whereby aliens who have violated our Nation’s immigration laws are released into the United States shortly after their apprehension.”

“The safety and security of the American people is the President’s highest priority, and he will keep his promise to protect our country and to ensure that our laws are respected,” Sanders added.
