US Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly on Sunday told CNN’ Danna Bash that the government is not interested in going after illegal immigrants who have not committed any crimes.

“If you are just here illegally, you can rest easy. We won’t deport you simply because of that. We are going after criminals,” Kelly said during a live interview on State of the Union show on Sunday morning.

He encouraged illegal immigrants to call 911 and report criminal activities even if they don’t want to be identified. “That is how the system works. You can call 911 and conceal your identity if you wish,” he said.

The department has in the recent past been criticised for the manner in which it has been carrying out raids targeting people who live or work in the United States without authority to do so.

“This administration is tearing families apart. totally in human,” said Manuel Ortega in a phone interview with ksnmedia.com on Sunday morning.

“Why would anyone who is here illegally, and in good mind frame, volunteer information to the very people who want to take you back to a place where you have no future,” wondered Ortega.

Secretary Kelly also told CNN that the Department of Homeland Security is not targeting “dreamers” for deportation.

“The department has many, many more important criminals to go after and get rid of,” he said

 Kelly said President Donald Trump had instructed  him to focus on two  issues related to illegal immigration.
“Neither of those two issues include deporting so-called dreamers, or undocumented immigrants who were brought into the United States as children and grew up in the country,” said the Secretary.

Kelly spoke as the Trump administration entered its final stretch of “100 days in office,” a period that has traditionally been used by the US media as a yardstick to measure the efficacy of new administrations.
