ICE Finds New Ways Around Sanctuary Policies

Reports show in cities and counties with sanctuary laws in place, law enforcement agencies are continuing to work with ICE in “unofficial” ways.

Democrats, who by and large control these jurisdictions, are furious their policies are actively being undermined. (Hot Air)

Two years after New Mexico’s largest county barred local law enforcement from cooperating with immigration authorities, its leaders learned that the policy was being subverted from within.

Staff members at the Bernalillo County jail in Albuquerque were still granting immigration authorities access to its database and, in some cases, tipping them off when a person of interest was being released.

“I was surprised and horrified,” said Maggie Hart Stebbins, chairwoman of the Bernalillo County Commission. “Individual employees do not have the freedom to pick and choose what they want to observe.”

There’s an interesting response for you. The Chair of New Mexico’s Bernalillo County Commission was (direct quote) “surprised and horrified” to find that known criminal illegal aliens were, in at least some cases, being taken into custody for processing, prosecution, and possible deportation. This is apparently what passes for “a bad thing” in some Democratic circles.

The Associated Press reports that police have been observed assisting ICE in defiance of the local government in Philadelphia, Chicago, and throughout California.

Of course, Democratic politicians would rather punish cops for enforcing the law and keeping people safe than criminal illegal immigrants.
