LA police, county sheriff’s department on first-ever federal list of agencies not honoring ICE detainers – Los Angeles Times

The Department of Homeland Security on Monday released the first ever report on law enforcement agencies that are potentially “endangering Americans” by failing to cooperate with ICE detainers and named multiple jurisdictions in California.

As part of a Trump administration directive to “highlight” uncooperative police agencies, the weekly “Declined Detainer Outcome Report,” lists those that have failed to honor U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement requests to further detain suspects so they can be processed for possible deportation.

“When law enforcement agencies fail to honor immigration detainers and release serious criminal offenders, it undermines ICE’s ability to protect the public safety and carry out its mission,” said Acting ICE Director Thomas Homan.

Monday’s detainer report listed 10 jurisdictions that fail to comply with detainers “on a routine basis.” They are: Clark County, Nevada; Nassau County, New York; Cook County, Illinois; Montgomery County, Iowa; Snohomish County, Washington; Franklin County, New York; Washington County, Oregon; Alachua County, Florida; Franklin County, Iowa; and Franklin County, Pennsylvania.
