President Donald Trump included in the executive orders he signed Tuesday a call for the Department of Homeland Security to create and publish a list of crimes committed by undocumented immigrants, The Hill reports.

According to the order, the secretary of Homeland Security "shall utilize the Declined Detainer Outcome Report or its equivalent and, on a weekly basis, make public a comprehensive list of criminal actions committed by aliens and any jurisdiction that ignored or otherwise failed to honor any detainers with respect to such aliens."

Trump's intention is "to better inform the public regarding the public safety threats associated with sanctuary jurisdictions."

Human Rights Watch called the idea a sign of Trump's "xenophobia," and said it is "shocking in the extreme."

"This is completely consistent with Trump's xenophobic demonizing of immigrants throughout the campaign, of course, but the idea of a public list like this — a kind of weekly hate list — is still shocking in the extreme," Andrew Stroehlein, who directs HRW's European media, told The Independent

"The measures this administration has announced against immigrants in its first few days will devastate families — including US citizen families, naturally — and terrorize communities across the country."

Trump frequently drew criticism for his remarks on undocumented immigrants while on the campaign trail.

"They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists and some I assume are good people," he said in June 2015 about illegal immigrants from Mexico when he officially announced his campaign.
