Trump Signs Memorandum Ending ‘Catch And Release’ Policy

WASHINGTON, April 6 (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump signed a memorandum on Friday ordering the end of a policy, known as “catch and release,” in which undocumented immigrants are released from detention while awaiting a court hearing on their status.

As part of the memo, Trump asked Defense Secretary Jim Mattis to produce a list of military facilities that could be used to detain undocumented immigrants.
