ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) ó New York state agencies and officials will be barred from asking about a person's immigration status, under an executive order issued Friday by Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

The new rule also prohibits officials from disclosing a person's immigration status to federal authorities, except in certain situations such as a law enforcement investigation.

"As Washington squabbles over rolling back sensible immigration policy, we are taking action to help protect all New Yorkers from unwarranted targeting by government," Cuomo said in a statement accompanying his order. "New York became the Empire State due to the contributions of immigrants from every corner of the globe and we will not let the politics of fear and intimidation divide us."

Practically speaking, the order means State Police troopers or officers with other state law enforcement agencies will not be allowed to question a crime victim or a witness about their citizenship or residency.

3. The distrust of the police in immigrant communities since Trump

took office has escalated. Many either as crime victim or witness failed to come forward in urban area when they fear being incarcerated or deported. There are lots of unsolved crimes due to this. If your ask any investigator or community policing officer they will tell you that is the sad case. Serious crimes such as murders, assaults, rape, etc. go unsolved.

Meanwhile.....the fuckwads in DC/

The Department of Justice announced Friday that itís rolling back an Obama-era program created to help improve trust between police agencies and the communities they serve.

The department said itís making significant changes to an office that investigated and issued public reports about problems it found in individual police departments.

DOJ said the changes to the program ďwill return control to the public safety personnel sworn to protect their communities and focus on providing real-time technical assistance to best address the identified needs of requesting agencies to reduce violent crime.Ē
