The pragmatic solution lies not in forcing a square peg through a round hole, but in taking the time to figure out the needs of federal and local law enforcement so that they can work together to protect individual rights, and pursue justified removals.

Ocean County's 48 Hour Immigration Detainer Policy was crafted on July 28, 2015 by Jail Warden Mueller. "The idea that entering courthouses to make immigration related arrests somehow enhances public safety is disturbingly backwards", San Francisco District Attorney Gascon said in a statement.

An undocumented immigrant from Antigua with two past gun arrests was also targeted. Sessions portrays detainers as a friendly "request" from immigration to local law enforcement to hold - detain - unauthorized immigrants until ICE can round them up and place them in proper immigration proceedings.

In fact, Gualtieri says, several courts have made it clear they can't legally keep an inmate - even those here illegally - beyond their court-ordered incarceration. "They're very invasive stops, three cars block in the van, one auto in front, one behind, one on the side, lots of officers".

Foreign nationals were arrested during the week of February 6, 2017, during a targeted enforcement operation conducted by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) aimed at immigration fugitives, re-entrants and at-large criminal aliens.

"Indiscriminate raids that target hardworking immigrant parents throw families into crisis and communities into terror", VICPP executive director Kim Bobo said in a news release. And last month, The Washington Post reported that another woman, a mother of six children who is married to a US citizen, was told she must return to Mexico this summer after showing up for her appointment with ICE in Chicago.

Segal said there are other legal ways in which state and federal authorities can cooperate, and said, "Here in MA, law enforcement officers can't arrest somebody just because someone else asked them too, even if that someone else is the federal government".

ICE officials declined Wednesday to comment on the sheriffs' complaints, or their assertion that the detainers call for them to illegally detain prisoners.

Alachua County Sheriff Sadie Darnell said the listing brought her office "great notoriety" and said the DHS releases are misleading and frustrating. The governor announced $1.5 million in cuts for the county in response to Travis County Sheriff Hernandez's policy. At one point, 72 localities participated in it.

As of August 2014, Ocean County was officially designated as a sanctuary county.

Trump's supporters are applauding the government, saying the rule of law must be upheld and that the president is following through on his campaign promises to crack down on illegal immigration. Pat Toomey over immigration enforcement. Multiple times a week, I'm asked why we are cooperating with federal immigration officials or why we are not. "This is first and foremost a public safety issue, not just for our immigrant communities, but for all Denver residents", she said.

During this ICE operation, ERO officers received assistance from special agents with ICE Homeland Security Investigations (HSI).

It's a shaming tactic, says the sheriff, meant to apply political pressure. "The only way we'd be involved in checking the status of immigrants is after they are charged with a felony". "He doesn't quite understand the problem, and he's preying on people's fears that immigrants are here to steal people's jobs", she said.
