One Attorney General Wants ICE Handcuffed. Now Cops are Firing Back.
The New Jersey Attorney General's office, led by Democrat Gurbir Grewal is demanding local sheriffs must request permission to work in any capacity with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

If they refuse to do so, the sheriffs will face legal action. 

Now, cops want the progressive lawman gone.

Per Conservative Tribune:
 

This harsh letter from Grewal comes after it was discovered that some sheriffs were renewing agreements with ICE without informing the New Jersey Attorney General’s office.

Monmouth County Sheriff Shaun Golden responded to Grewal’s latest letter, saying that he is “hopeful” the state will allow its agreement with ICE to stand, as his county jail’s staff often has to take on the responsibility of federal immigration officers.

“Cooperation from the federal, state and local level is essential when protecting the public and ensuring that dangerous, undocumented immigrants are not released from jail in order to maintain the safety of our communities,” said Golden in a July 9 letter.

Golden’s statement also notes that 40 out of nearly 8,000 inmates processed at the county jail last year were discovered to be illegal aliens — these undocumented individuals were promptly turned over to ICE, according to WHYY-FM.
