The U.S. Department of Homeland Security's new rule will apply "expedited removal" to any illegal crossers who cannot prove they have been in the country for two years or more.
The rule currently only applies for people apprehended along the southern border with Mexico or at a port of entry who cannot prove they have been in the U.S. for more than 14 days.
But the new rule would apply to those arrested anywhere in the U.S. who have not been in the country for more than two years.
The apprehended people will not be reviewed by an immigration judge if they aren't recognized as asylum seekers.
The Trump administration expects the speedy deportation process to resolve a huge back-log in immigration courts and free up detention space.
But the new rule is coming under intense criticism.
The American Civil Liberties Union, a nonprofit organization that has fought against numerous Trump immigration policies, has vowed to sue.
Human Rights Watch warned the change makes people living in U.S. communities subject to an opaque deportation process with limited judicial review.
