5:13 pm
authorities in washington, d.c. want to know who left graffiti on three national monuments. someone used a permanent marker to deface the lincoln memorial, the washington monument and world war ii memorial some time between sunday night and monday morning. park service officials said the vandalism does not appear to be motivated by hate or politics. the trump administration is taking a hardline stance against illegal immigration. new guidelines under president trump greatly expand the number of people in the country illegally that can be considered a priority for deportation. they include anyone convicted, charge or even suspected of a
5:14 pm
crime, and that includes traffic violations. kristen welker joins us from washington. >> do they have the resources to carry out all these orders? >> reporter: well, dhs, the white house, believes they do have the resources. they'll have to reallocate the funds from congress to do it. because the d had, s guidelines today call for hiring 10,000 more i.c.e. agents, 5,000 more border agents. it allows for parents who pay smugglers to bring their kids across the border, they could be subject to prosecution. and those who cross the border could be immediately detained. so the way that you've characterized this is absolutely right. this is really an expansion of who they're going to be scrutinizing and looking at very closely. now this has raised some alarm bells for immigrant rights groups who say, wait a minute, this looks like it amounts to mass deportation. the white house is pushing back
5:15 pm
against that characterization. white house press secretary sean spicer saying that's not the case. he has said that they are going to be prioritizing the deportation of criminals, but nonetheless this is a much tougher approach to deportation. one important caveat, though, they are leaving the dacha executive order in place. that obama-era executive order which essentially allows young people who are here studying to not have to worry about being deported. >> this is the last look here from president trump on immigration policy this week. we do expect a new version of that travel ban to be released as well, right? >> that's what we're expecting. we know that the white house is working on a new version of that so-called travel ban executive order. and the challenge for the white house is to make sure that it would withstand legal challenges because remember the first version did not. i'm told based on my conversations here with sources that this new executive order is still going to halt travel from the same seven countries, but
5:16 pm
unlike the first order, it is not going to include an indefinite ban of all syrian refugees. one of my sources stresses this is still a work in progress and nothing is final here at the white house until the president announces it. >> an nbc 10 alum by the way, from washington. >> good to see you guys. thanks. >> now from the politics to the people. >> nbc 10's lauren mayk takes a closer look at how this crackdown could affect families from across our area. >> reporter: in philadelphia immigrant rights advocates were already preparing even training people how to peacefully disrupt an i.c.e. raid in workshops likes this. but the new memo from the dhs secretary changed things for people like sheila cantina. >> it includes basically everybody. >> reporter: she's an organizer with new sanctuary movement and has family members in the u.s.
5:17 pm
who are undocumented. >> i have family members who will be personally impacted. >> reporter: it sets priorities for removing those convicted of crimes but says no category of those labeled removable aliens are exempt. >> it makes me feel really angry and gives me a lot of strength to see all of our communities come out and not be intimidated. >> reporter: new sanctuary movement is organizing hundreds of community members to show up when i.c.e. agents arrive to remove someone, but families themselves now watching and waiting to see the impact of the new direction. would you tell your family members you should live your life any differently than maybe a couple weeks ago? >> not necessarily. we're asking people to be prepared and we're asking people that this is a time for us to stand up. this is not a time for us to go back into hiding. and that's not what we're seeing. we're seeing people who have had enough. >> reporter: in kensington, i'm lauren mayk, nbc 10 news. lauren also took a closer
5:18 pm
look at what this means for sanctuary cities. that story coming up all new at 6:00. and nbc "nightly news" will have much more on the president's new crackdown on illegal immigration and how it had be carried out. how refugees are fleeing the u.s. for canada. that's coming up at 6:30 right here on nbc 10. now your nbc 10 first alert weather. >> we'll begin wa live look outside cape may, new jersey. beautiful shot as the sun is setting here. what we're looking at are clouds but still some sun breaking through. that's going to be a theme over the next several days. the difference will be in the wind direction which will pull in warmer air over the next several days. so radar and satellite showing us the clouds that we do have. it's kind of a blanket of gray for us today with peeks of sunshine. and you can tell more where that comes from as this continues to push on in from the west. so the clouds will hang overnight. temperatures, they took a little dip as a result, still warmer than average, though.
