senate Bill S. 2739

Should it be Clearly Legal for State & Local Law Enforcement to Comply with ICE Detainer Requests?

Argument in favor

When state and local law enforcement agencies decline to comply with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainer requests, they make communities less safe. Allowing unauthorized immigrants who have committed crimes to leave jail or prison and return to the general population, rather than facing deportation, is clearly a bad policy that puts people at risk.

If a citizen of the United States commits a crime in one state and flees to another, state and/or local authorities must detain the individual until the US Marshals (yes, Jackie, federal law enforcement) can extradite the individual back to the state of the offense... Absolutely, the same goes for criminal non-citizens; they must be detained until ICE arrives, to 'extradite' them back to wherever they came from... Criminal prosecution would be nice too, but that would just keep them in the US longer on tax payer dollars... Just put them on a bus back to Mexico. Preferential treatment for non-citizens needs to go, especially to those that commit horrendous crimes (sex offenses, murder, etc.) in addition to the crime of entering the US illegally... Make an example of these monsters!

Argument opposed

State and local law enforcement’s job is to keep communities safe, not to act as an extension of federal immigration authorities. As ICE detainer requests are merely requests, not warrants or court orders with the force of law behind them, local law enforcement has the right to decide not to comply with them if they deem it inappropriate to do so.

State and locality police are accountable to State and Locality regulations and direction by their Civil government. ICE has no legal standing to walk in and treat local and state police as an extension of their organization and tell them what they have to do, that they are obligated to let ICE officers override their direction. If ICE operated with the same legal standards regarding right to privacy, due cause, judicial orders to detain then possibly the locality and State police could be directed by their civil authority to selectively support ICE operations. Until ICE has the kind of civil oversight we expect our police to have (which it does not), there could be significant and consequential abuses of police authority by making police support ICE actions which currently are not held to the same legal standards. Until a significant civil oversight exists of ICE operations and ICE is held accountable for actions which are unlawful for State and Locality police- ICE must be kept completely separate. If an immigrant is lawfully charged with a crime, that is a police matter and should be referred to locality police for handling- not ICE, as they are not a police force.

    IntroducedOctober 30th, 2019

What is Senate Bill S. 2739?

This bill — the Immigration Detainer Enforcement Act of 2019 — would make it clearly legal for state and local authorities to hold unauthorized immigrants in jail in compliance with a federal detainer request. It would clarify the Dept. of Homeland Security’s (DHS) detainer authority, clearly establish the authority of states and localities to maintain custody in cases in which a detainer has been issued, and incentivize cooperation between law enforcement agencies and DHS through the reimbursement of certain detention, technology, and litigation-related costs. 

Specifically, this bill would: 

  • Give explicit authority to the arresting federal, state, tribal, or local law enforcement agency to maintain custody of an illegal immigrant for a period of no more than 48 hours to permit assumption of custody by the DHS upon the issuance of a detainer.
  • Allow the federal government to enter into agreements with the arresting law enforcement agency to indemnify those agencies against wrongful detention claims by third parties due to a detainer issued without reason to believe the individual is a removable unauthorized immigrant. This indemnification wouldn’t extend to claims relating to negligence or willful misconduct.
  • Make jurisdictions ineligible for reimbursement of detention costs if they are certified by the DHS Secretary as being incompliant with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and make jurisdictions that comply with detainer requests eligible for reimbursement of detention costs for inmates held by ICE detainers.
  • Make jurisdictions that are deemed noncompliant by the DHS Secretary lower priority when being considered for funding from the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program and when benefitting from the 1033 and 1122 programs.

Impact

Unauthorized immigrants detained by state and local law enforcement; state and local law enforcement; state and local law enforcement compliance with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainer requests; Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS); Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE); and state and local jurisdictions’ eligibility for funding from the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program and 1033 and 1122 programs.

A CBO cost estimate is unavailable.

More Information

“I think most people realize the common sense of a policy that says if you have someone in jail who has committed a serious crime — not simply the crime of being illegally present, not simply having a removal order — but a serious crime, then please let us work with (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) so we can safely transfer them to an ICE facility and keep our community safer.”

Sen. Tillis argues that sanctuary city policies are “reckless,” and that they endanger states’ residents. He says that those subject to ICE detainer requests “are people who have removal orders issued against them. These are not people who are in jail for being illegally present. They’re in jail because they committed a crime after they violated our border laws.” He frames the issue with a rhetorical question

“Is it fair to hold an alleged murderer, heroin trafficker, someone who’s been accused of taking indecent liberties with a child for a 48 hour period whose illegally in the country and is a deportable illegal alien? Yeah, I think that’s fair.”

Original cosponsor Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) adds

“Sanctuary jurisdictions provide havens for illegal aliens and put the safety of our citizens at risk… We need to incentivize local law enforcement to work with – not against – our federal agencies to secure our border.”

House sponsor Rep. Dan Bishop (R-NC) says

“Releasing dangerous criminals does not build 'trust' with the immigrant community – it puts their lives in danger. While a few North Carolina sheriffs believe their actions to be compassionate, I doubt the victims of violent crime such as beatings, rape and murder feel the same way. This bill removes the fig leaf of legal excuses that rogue sheriffs have used to rationalize their brutal and inhumane policies and I am proud to work with my colleagues on this critical piece of legislation.”

The Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office, whose sheriff, Garry McFadden, hasn’t honored detainer requests, saying he needs federal agencies to obtain arrest warrants for him to keep people in custody, responded to this bill’s introduction in a press release

“Sheriff McFadden’s position on this issue is well documented and he remains steadfast in his policy not to honor immigration detainers. As it pertains to the proposed legislation; Sheriff McFadden has maintained that the Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office will always follow the law and unless the law changes, Sheriff McFadden will continue to exercise the constitutional authority of his elected Office and will not honor immigration detainers.”

Sheriff McFadden says that once a suspect meets bail, they’re free to leave, and that holding them in jail would be illegal, even with an ICE detainer in place. McFadden’s office has also accused lawmakers of “strong-arming” and “bullying” sheriffs on the issue of ICE detainers. In a statement over the summer, Sheriff McFadden’s office says that attempts to force sheriffs to comply with ICE detainers would “not only negatively impact public safety in Mecklenburg County… [but also] significantly erode the authority of all duly elected Sheriffs.”

Action NC opposes this bill. It argues that sheriffs should work to ensure communities’ safety, not work as immigration agents. Héctor Vaca, the organization’s Training/Organizing Director, says:

“What [this bill is] proposing is that our sheriff is to ignore the law. He is not a judge. The role of a sheriff is to enforce the law and to let people out when there time is up in jail. If the judge says he can go free, that’s the judges decision.”

This legislation has seven Republican Senate cosponsors. Its House companion, sponsored by Rep. Dan Bishop (R-NC), has three Republican cosponsors.


Of NoteAn Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainer is a request for local law enforcement to hold individuals that they believe aren’t lawful citizens in jail or prison for up to 48 hours until ICE can take custody and begin deportation proceedings. Individuals targeted by detainer requests are typically otherwise eligible for release from jail or prison.

Detainer requests aren’t judicial orders signed by a court official or arrest warrants that require a finding of probable cause. Because they’re requests, local law enforcement can choose whether or not to enforce them. Recently, some states and localities have implemented sanctuary policies and refused to honor ICE detainer requests and chosen to only work with ICE as much as the law requires. 

According to Sen. Tillis’ office, much of this lack of cooperation has been fueled by federal court decisions questioning state and local law enforcement’s authority to maintain custody of an unauthorized immigrant who is the subject of an immigration detainer beyond the time they would otherwise have been released. In these rulings, appeals courts have ruled that detainers violate Fourth Amendment protections. Additionally, some state and local law enforcement agencies declining to cooperate with immigration detainers have cited fiscal concerns.  

According to WBTV, data shows that nearly 500 unauthorized immigrants were released from North Carolina jails despite ICE detainer requests. These individuals had charges that included sex offenses, kidnapping, arson, and homicide.

    Is it okay for a sitting president to bribe a foreign government into investigating a political rival for personal gain, in return for aid already approved by Congress.? Our founding fathers didn’t think so and planned for it. Devin Nunez met with Ukrainians and directly pushed for Biden investigations. The meetings were set up by Giuliani’s Russian criminal friend Lev Parnas. Sondland was on a “Domestic Political Errand.” Was there a quid pro quo? Sondland, “Yes”. “Everyone was in the loop”. David Holmes, testified that Ukrainian officials “came to understand what was required” in order to get military assistance and a meeting with trump. U.S. ambassador to Ukraine felt threatened by trumps remarks and was threatened by trump while testifying. Long time friend and confidant of trump Roger Stone, found guilty of lying and witness tampering. trump has asked the Supreme Court to keep his taxes hidden, so no more separation of powers in the government. trump sought status of Ukraine investigations showing aid was depended on the investigations themselves. trump complains that witnesses all speak from 2nd and 3rd hand knowledge yet ordered Mulvaney not to testify. Laura Cooper testified that the Pentagon sought clarification from the trump administration about the hold up of the Ukraine aide and received none. A second person has said they reported sexual misconduct involving a former doctor who’s been accused of sexually abusing nearly 300 men over a 17-year period to Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and his staff felt they would not get the millions of dollars in aid money without publicly committing to launch the investigations Trump wanted. Senior trump administration officials considered resigning en masse in a ‘midnight self massacre’. State Department official says Giuliani was engaged in a campaign ‘full of lies and incorrect information’ about former ambassador. trump has issued pardons for two soldiers being tried for war crimes and returned rank to a soldier who took a selfie with a dead body. trump to pay $2 million for charity foundation misuse. trump wanted attorney general Barr to hold a news conference saying the president broke no laws on Ukraine call. White House official who heard trumps call with Ukraine president was told to keep quite. White House lawyer moved transcript of trump call to classified server after Ukraine adviser raised alarms. He has politicized our national security and has chosen Putin and other dictators over our own congress and security agencies. “I stated to Amb. Sondland that his statements were inappropriate, that the request to investigate Biden and his son had nothing to do with national security, and that such investigations were not something the NSC was going to get involved in or push,” Vindman adds. Lt. Col. Alexander S. Vindman, a top Ukraine expert on the National Security Council is testifying that trump demanded that a foreign government investigate an American citizen in exchange for Congresses approved aide. Just reached a $984 billion deficit while he lines his pockets with our tax dollars and foreign money at his resorts. $400 million in aide money was withheld from Ukraine back in August and Ukrainian leaders were told it was not red tape, that they needed to talk to Chief of Staff Mulvaney to resolve it and make a CNN statement about Biden in order to receive said aide. Rudolph W. Giuliani, the president’s personal lawyer, is running a shadow foreign policy in Ukraine that circumvents U.S. officials and career diplomats in order to personally benefit President trump. Igor Fruman and Lev Parnas. Look them up. North Korea just tested a submarine launched missile. Deserted our Kurdish allies who have been fighting ISIS with us and now are being slaughtered. All because he has a tower in Istanbul. “The Americans betrayed us. We do not trust them anymore,” she added. These used to be our Kurdish allies that stood against ISIS. He is refusing to comply with the law. He is using the power of the presidency to withhold aide to one of the worst humanitarian crisis on the planet in exchange for political favors in order to sway the 20/20 election. He is acting like a criminal and threatening the life of the whistleblower. Mr. America first is sending troops to Saudi Arabia in support of a murdering dictator who spends millions at his hotels and resorts. Corey Lewandowski testified to congress that trump ordered him to obstruct justice. He is blocking information that pertains to the safety of our country from reaching congress. He has been threatening NOAA, a federal agency, with punishment if they do not disavow the truth and side with his lies. He invited the Taliban to Camp David the week of 9/11. He is a #PussyAssBitch He’s doctoring weather maps to try and prove he’s not an idiot. He has stayed at trump properties 293 days in 3 years, that’s our tax dollars going directly into his pocket. He took money from military daycares to pay for a wall that won’t work and no one wants. The Vice President and the Attorney General are both spending tax payer dollars on trump hotels, lining his pockets and currying his favor. He has privately instructed aides to skirt laws and regulations to get the wall built faster — and told them he will pardon them if necessary. He is pressuring a government agency to give a contract for his wall to a company whose chief executive is a donor to one of his top GOP allies in Congress. He took hundreds of millions from 127 different projects (FEMA being one of those) for his wall. He thinks nuking a hurricane is an idea. He is host the next G-7 at one of his own resorts. Again our tax dollars paying him directly. He taunted Iran by tweeting a classified image of an Iranian rocket that had exploded, thereby potentially compromising U.S. intelligence capabilities. His own company would save millions from the low interest rates he is demanding. He was going to give you tax cuts through your paychecks but decided not to. This year the richest of us payed less in taxes than the rest of us. He is destroying the economy with HIS trade war. We will soon average a 1.2 trillion deficit. He is repeating NRA talking points on background checks so expect no action taken regardless of the fact there has been 27 arrested over threats to commit mass attacks since El Paso( NOT TOLEDO). He made fun of republicans being afraid of the NRA and then caved after a 30 minute phone conversation with them. He bragged about indefinite child detention because it brings families together. He is refusing flue shots, that protect us all(google influenza pandemic), to immigrant children. He is attacking fellow congresswomen in really disgusting ways and making anti-Semitic remarks about Jews calling them disloyal. He thinks he’s the chosen one based on a conspiracy theory web sight. He has: Obstructed Justice. Is profiting from the Presidency. Colluded - They had a meeting & lied about it. Advocated political & police violence. Abuse of power. Engaging in reckless behavior. Persecuting political opponents. Attacking the free press. Violating immigrants Right to Due Process. Violating campaign finance laws. Racist: Speaks directly to and often tweeting straight from white supremacists. Calls them very fine people. Told fellow congresswomen to go back where they came from. Called them shit hole countries. Called them murderers and rapists. Calls her Pocahontas. Took out full page adds calling for the death of five innocent black kids in New York, 1989. Literally has said in an interview he has Hitlers speeches, My New Order in his nightstand. Our Money: Spent campaign finance money on hush payments to silence a porn star he had an affair with in order to hide it from the voters. Has spent over $100 million of our tax dollars playing golf at his own golf courses. Has never divested from companies and advertises and profits off the White House. Was going to cut Medicaid and Medicare funding to pay for the tax cuts he gave to the rich. Is actively destroying farmers lives with his trade wars that we all know only hurts our pockets not Chinas. Has made the lives of every truck driver across America as well as our own, more dangerous by removing safety regulations that only benefits the pockets of the CEOs of those companies. Has removed any and all protections we had in place from work safety, environment, women’s rights, LGBTQ rights and gives that power back to the CEOs, oil companies, men and old white men. Saudi funded lobbyist rented 500 rooms at a trump hotel he never divested from right after he became president. Wonder why? Sexual Predator: Accused by more than 20 women of molestation and rape. Bragged about said molestation on tape. Has cheated on all three wives (see above). Has made sexual remarks on camera about his daughter. Belittles and bully’s women. Not even sure he’s aware he has two daughters. Idiot: Has allowed North Korea to grow there nuclear weapons program. Took the side of Putin over America’s own security agencies on the national stage. Lacks the intelligence and facts needed to communicate on a global level much less national one. Makes policy decisions based on FOX media. Lies when speaks. Doesn’t believe in science and quite often displays his ignorance of it. Russia: Lied about meetings with Russians. Lied about a trump tower Moscow. Personal attorney Michael Cohen (same guy who broke campaign finance laws under trumps direction) had contacts with russian officials. National Security aide Flynn resigned over Russian contacts. Jeff Sessions recused himself because of Russian contacts. Manafort resigned because of Russian contacts. Campaign foreign policy adviser Papadopoulos met with Russians then bragged about it to Australians who then turned that info over to our FBI. Sixteen campaign officials had contacts with Russia and at least nine others new about it. Russian mobster lived in trump tower. trump casino was flagged 106 times for lax money laundering standards and same Russian frequently stayed at trump casino. Has been selling real estate to Russians for years. It really is surprising how many connections to Russians this man has. Rick Scott, Marco Rubio, Bill Posey You are my representatives. OLC policy: The indictment or criminal prosecution of a criminal investigation of a sitting President would unconstitutionally undermine the capacity of the executive branch to perform its constitutionally assigned functions. It’s time to do your job. You swore an oath to this country, it’s people and me to uphold the constitution. The president has never upheld that oath. How do you want to be remembered?

    No! Law enforcement is not ICE, not an extension of ICE, and not in charge of detaining immigrants. Our immigrant population, legal & otherwise, are too scared to call the police for just this reason! As well, our police officers do not need another role to add to their long list of duties, especially one that puts them at odds with the community they are sworn to protect & serve.

Many of thOse who TRUMP’S STORM TROOPERS ARE ROUNDING UP have been here for decades and have contributed to society & also paid taxes, etc OR SERVED IN OUR MILITARY AND THEN DEPORTED. What a way to treat our veterans. This whole thing is WRONG in so many ways.

    Detainer requests aren’t judicial orders signed by a court official or arrest warrants that require a finding of probable cause. Holding people with no evidence or probable cause past the legal limit “just because” someone in ICE THINKS they MAY be undocumented is not only illegal and unconstitutional, but it’s also a smooth slide right into totalitarianism. We don’t want to walk the path of law enforcement being able to hold people “just because”.
