government prioritizes for arrest, detention, prosecution, and removal those aliens

who pose a danger to national security, a risk to public safety, or threaten border

security. Consistent with these enforcement priorities, the federal government

focuses its enforcement resources on aliens engaged in or suspected of terrorism or

criminals, felons, and repeat offenders; certain gang members; aliens subject to

outstanding criminal warrants; and aliens who are repeat re-entrants or fugitives

from immigration courts, especially those with criminal records.
