AG on ICE Sweeps: California Is 'Not in the Business of Deportation'

Immigration and Customs Enforcement Planning Major Sweep in San Francisco Says Source

Jerry Brown, a Democrat, over a new state law that strictly limits the cooperation of local law enforcement with federal immigration authorities when they are booked into jail for other reasons.

The partnership is aimed at illegal immigrants who are arrested and charged for incidents unrelated to their immigration status.

Recognizing these legal challenges, the National Sheriffs' Association (NSA) and the Major County Sheriffs of America (MCSA) worked with ICE to develop a new process to clarify that aliens held by these jurisdictions are held under the color of federal authority, thereby affording local law enforcement liability protection from potential litigation as a result of faithfully executing their public safety duties.

The new plan will eventually be rolled out nationwide, although it remains to be seen how many law enforcement agencies will volunteer.

"Today's announcement is about public safety - period", Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri said.

"Regardless of what the rumors are, the law is the law, the Constitution is the Constitution and people have rights", Becerra said at a press conference. "ICE's valued state and local law enforcement partners are being challenged in court for facilitating the secure and orderly custodial transfer of criminal aliens to ICE".

California Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de León on Wednesday blasted the Trump administration's threats to arrest political leaders of so-called "sanctuary cities" and a looming federal immigration sweep expected in Northern California.

Democratic U.S. Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris sent Homan a letter Wednesday asking to be briefed on how raids are prioritized and for all communications regarding upcoming raids in California.

Polk County, Florida, Sheriff Grady Judd referred to several cases that his deputies worked, including one of an immigrant living in the country illegally who was arrested and released from local jails five times. "We want to protect families, not tear them apart". ICE agrees to pay the sheriffs for holding someone for up to 48 hours, helping cement the federal involvement and answer judges' concerns.

"This plan is simply a repackaging of failed detainer policies that leaves sheriffs and jails on the hook for civil rights violations", Omar Jadwat, director of the American Civil Liberties Union's Immigrants' Rights Project, said in a statement.
