DHS Publishes List of Jurisdictions That Rejected Immigrant Detainer Requests

Trump administration: Police agencies didn't help feds with deportations

The number of detainers issued is expected to increase over the next several weeks as ICE field offices have been instructed to issue detainers on all removable aliens in the custody of local law enforcement. The Travis County Sheriff's decision to deny ICE detainer requests and release back into our communities criminals charged with heinous crimes - including sexual offenses against children, domestic violence and kidnapping - is risky and should be criminal in itself.

The report does not note the outcome of the detainer requests and describes Clark County as having a "policy of non-cooperation".

In the report, DHS lays out the type of crime for which the individual was either charged or convicted, where they were arrested and the request was declined.

The report was the first of weekly updates that President Donald Trump's executive order on immigration requires.

Sean Spicer says Trump campaign chairman actually played 'limited role' in campaign
Spicer falsely claimed that Manafort only operated in the Trump sphere for a short time. The Obama CIA director said so.

ICE arrested 51 people in the Austin area thought to be in the United States illegally in mid-February, and records obtained by the KVUE Defenders show 28 of them had no criminal history. "Our goal is to build cooperative, respectful relationships with our law enforcement partners".

The report states 3,083 detainers were issued nationwide, with 206 (around 6.7 percent) of those declined.

These counties, cities and local law enforcement agencies have decided not to cooperate with every detainer for fear that members of the community will be afraid to cooperate with police, even in cases where they are helping to prevent and stop crime.

There are also concerns about due process.

U.S. to ban some airline passengers from carrying electronics after 'terror threat'
A tweet from Royal Jordanian airlines created confusion on Monday about the previously unheard-of security measure. About a dozen carriers will be affected but these do not include American airlines, the official added.

County officials say a shift in policy explains why Travis County, as opposed to cities with more liberal policies, tops this list.

After almost declining an ICE detainer issued for a man accused of molesting a child, Hernandez said she would consider expanding her policy to include crimes committed against children and elderly.

The information reflects that detainers were declined on immigrants charged with a variety of crimes, including driving under the influence, drug possession, sexual assault, robbery and indecent exposure to a minor. That means the Southern Nevada County received the most detainers among "jurisdictions that do not comply with detainers on a routine basis", the report said. It doesn't represent all the cases in which immigration authorities sought custody of people facing criminal charges, with major cities like NY and Los Angeles underrepresented on the list.
