ICE puts local law enforcement agencies on blast in 'detainer' report

ICE puts local law enforcement agencies on blast in 'detainer' report

The list from DHS shows Snohomish county had 12 detainer requests between January 28 and February 3.

"This is a shaming list, a scarlet letter that the federal government is going to put on jurisdictions around the country", Dennis Herrera, San Francisco's city attorney, told the New York Times last month after the Trump administration first announced its plans to release a list of non-compliant jurisdictions.

In one instance, on December 7, 2016, ICE requested that Weld officials hold an inmate. The jail does not hold inmates for ICE beyond their release dates.

Reams said the report completely misrepresents the facts.

King County spokesman David Shurtleff called the list "an attempt to make good on the administration's promise to "publicly cities and counties" " that don't cooperate with ICE.

"I think this is a truly terrifying decision that DHS has made", said Lindsay Schubiner of the civil rights group Center for New Community.

The DHS report, entitled the "Declined Detainer Outcome Report" listed 206 cases of immigrants released from custody from January 28 to February 3 despite federal agents' requests, called "detainers", to keep them locked up so the federal government could take them into custody.

Of the 206 instances documented in the DHS report, 142 occurred in Travis County, Texas. "It's irresponsible at best".

Still, Reams is not alone in his scathing critique of the veracity and fairness of the report. In Texas, Williamson County's sheriff said the same thing. It is only a request. Those are requests from ICE to hold inmates who may be undocumented or deportable until federal agents can pick them up.

Their argument is that immigrants would be in fear of cooperating with local police in reporting crimes and other public safety matters if they thought they could be deported.

"There have been federal court rulings in several of the federal judicial districts to that very effect. It certainly isn't policy based", said Eckhardt.

Beau Tidwell, an NOPD spokesman, clarified that detainers are handled by the sheriff's office, not the police department.

The 35-page Declined Detainer Outcome Report was released Monday. "In practice, we're not releasing people into the community they're interested in". If ICE truly felt that these offenders were a danger to society, they would establish probable cause and seek an arrest warrant, just like any other law enforcement agency.

De Blasio said it would be illegal for ICE to enter school buildings by force if refused entry by city law enforcement.

Last February, the New Orleans Police Department established a policy saying police offers can not question crime victims or witnesses about their immigration statuses, stop people presumed to be in the country illegally, or aid federal agents in enforcing immigration law. There is no state statute against being in the country illegally.

Washington counties are among the nation's least cooperative with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

"We will not allow ICE agents to threaten that protection, disrupt classes or take any action that would be detrimental to our students", de Blasio said at a press conference held outside New York's Tweed Courthouse Tuesday afternoon.

Although NYPD school safety officers already check identification for all visitors, de Blasio said no such guidelines now address ICE agents.

Sheriff Bill Brown: "The way we operate is we fully cooperate with ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) in terms of people who have been arrested within the confines of California law, which has gotten a little bit complicated in this area with the TRUTH Act and the TRUST Act".
