VIDEO Former ICE Director John Morton on immigration reform, deportations and prosecutorial discretion

In an excerpt from an exclusive Vme interview, former Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director John Morton speaks to Vme’s Marian de la Fuente. Among the issues discussed was his agency’s 2010 directive urging prosecutorial discretion on deportations, as well as his view of whether immigration reform will take place. “I would say it’s 50-50,” he said, adding it’s the best chance he has seen in a long time.  Morton said the agency was shifting its resources on deportations of recent border crossers or those with criminal convictions.  “There is no way ICE can remove 11 million people – this is impossible.”

The exclusive interview will air Friday, August 23rd at 9pET on Vme, as well as Sunday at noon.
