ICE provides local police a way to work around 'sanctuary' policies, act as immigration officers

Source: Washington Post

By Abigail Hauslohner May 6 at 6:19 PM

Sheriff’s offices and police departments in jurisdictions that provide “sanctuary” to undocumented immigrants will have a new way to work with federal authorities to detain and deport them, immigration authorities said Monday.

The new Warrant Service Officer program, introduced Monday in Pinellas County on Florida’s Gulf Coast, will allow participating sheriffs and police departments “the flexibility to make immigration arrests,” according to ICE. The move would allow local authorities to detain a criminal suspect beyond the point at which they would have been otherwise released if ICE has requested their detention, essentially giving ICE an extra 48 hours to take them into federal custody.

Selected sheriff’s office personnel “will be nominated, trained, and approved by ICE to perform certain limited functions of an immigration officer,” within the local jail or correctional facilities, according to a Memorandum of Agreement signed by the agency and Pinellas County on Monday.

ICE framed the new program as a countermeasure to the so-called sanctuary cities across the United States that Acting Director Matthew Albence said “undermine public safety” by adopting policies of noncooperation with federal immigration authorities. President Trump has repeatedly blasted such jurisdictions, including San Francisco and New York City, where local authorities refuse to respect ICE requests to hold people in local jails on behalf of immigration officials.

1. From the article:"The move would allow local authorities to detain a criminal suspect.."

What classifies someone as a criminal suspect? Is it the hue of their skin tone - rhetorical question.

2. Detain them where?

They will have to be taken to a federal facility. Pretty sure that's about 150 miles from my county.

This reminds me of a stunt our anti marijuana then Sheriff pulled after our state legalized medical marijuana. He had two deputies sworn in as DEA agents, and he refused to identify who they were. He was voted out of office in the next election.

3. What Could Go Wrong?

I didn't see any mention of setting a bond for the people being detained. Is that even legal for a non-violent detainee? Causing people to miss days from work could cost them their job. That alone makes this bone-headed. I could see some Sheriff's hiring extra deputies to do immigration sweeps (driving while brown). How far behind is the police state?

4. "will allow participating sheriffs and police departments" - is like an oxymoron

because cities and other municipalities that consider themselves "sanctuary cities" would not be "participating".
