Prosecutorial discretion is a matter of policy, not law — the discretion that any law enforcement agency, be it a prosecutor's office or Department of Homeland Security, has to decide why, when and how to enforce the law.
In the field of immigration law, prosecutorial discretion is defined as the authority that DHS has to decline to initiate or close removal proceedings, choose to forego existing removal orders and decide to not contest motions to reopen removal and terminate removal proceedings.
