3 arrested in Central VA during ICE operation

Darin HammondApr 07, 2017

Denverite was the first English-language media outlet to report on video that confirmed ICE agents waited in a courthouse hallway to arrest someone on immigration violations while they were in court on a different matter.

"I came here because I needed some help", Placencia said. "ICE lodged an immigration detainer with the Hale County Jail".

Whalen says nothing has changed since they released this statement.

Of the remaining 14, two had ties to the MS-13 street gang - which, according to an NBC affiliate - has been linked to several murders in the D.C. area; two had outstanding final orders of removal; three had overstayed their visas; one was wanted by a foreign law enforcement entity; one was a verified human rights violator and two had pending local charges, ICE said in its news releae.

Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings said the Department of Homeland Security report accusing Florida counties of refusing to hold undocumented immigrants is wrong.

In response to ICE's widespread parole denials, one group of New York City attorneys have taken legal action, filing multiple writs of habeas corpus in Manhattan's federal district court on the grounds that their clients were being held in indefinite detention without review. Last month alone, the jail detained nearly 70 undocumented people.

Sheriff Chody said he was shocked.

"The American people want and deserve a lawful immigration system that keeps us safe and serves our national interest", he said.

"What they can not do is perform a warrantless arrest and to detain that person longer than he or she would otherwise be held in state custody", said Barnett.

Brown said some undocumented criminals, like the suspect who sexually abused the 12-year-old, is a troubling example.

Sometimes, Jones' words are followed up with action.

In San Diego, that would kick ICE agents out of the jails and would mostly ban deputies from notifying ICE about the release dates of non-citizen inmates, unless the information is also available to the general public. The California Values Act would essentially create a "sanctuary state" and further widen the ideological chasm between California and the Trump administration when it comes to immigration.

The case of Commonwealth v. Sreynuon Lunn is moot for the defendant who was taken into custody by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, but it could have broad implications politically and policy-wise as the nation wrestles with heightened efforts to enforce immigration laws. The incident caused consternation not only among some in the city's Latino community, but was identified by the state's chief public defender as part of a disturbing pattern since President Trump's crackdown on illegal immigration began earlier this year. "We have police authority". "And that really is what we sheriffs intend to do". "If you are driving, the police will stop you and ask you for your documentation".

Undocumented immigrants get a free, public education.

But there's another, harsher reality in Butler County as well, critics say.

Those arrested who have outstanding orders of deportation or who have returned to the USA illegally after being deported, are subject to immediate removal from the country.

Cypher on Tuesday questioned Winger about what the remedy should be if the court ruled that arrests based on detailers are unlawful but some law enforcement declined to comply. The report stated one detainee was placed in solitary for 30 days for playing cards during church services.

"Some of the folks could have been encountered at a jail, or they could have been encountered at a parole office or probation office or at their residence or their place of employment", she said.

"So now we're looking for him", Decker said. "And if they are here illegally, they need to go back and do it the right way - go back to their country of origin".

Whether or not Jones and Butler County officials engage in those practices, fear remains among the county's Hispanic community.

The "sensitive locations" policy is described in an ICE memorandum from 2011 and has not been formally rescinded, at least not yet.

After such legal pressure, ICE is once again granting paroles in NY - but elsewhere in the country, asylum-seekers languish behind bars. The greatest concern he has about the immigration debate is the rhetoric being used. "People are hearing this rhetoric day in, day out", he says.
