ICE Plans Immigration Arrests

Oct 9, 2017

Immigration and Customs enforcement promised to begin carrying out immigration raids in California neighborhoods and businesses in spite of the states new legislation protecting illegal aliens. “ICE will also likely have to detain individuals arrested in California in detention facilities outside of the state, far from any family they may have in California.” Governor Jerry Brown signed legislation last week turning California into a sanctuary state. Law enforcement won’t be able to ask about immigration status after January 1, 2018. Also, California law enforcement agents won’t be able to comply with ICE immigration detainers. ICE and Homeland Security are federal agencies and California’s laws do not prevent them from continuing to operate in California. The Department of Homeland Security said, “We will continue to do our sworn duty to seek out dangerous criminal aliens and other immigration violators.” The department went on to say that California’s new immigration laws are “misguided.”
