Trump's Immigration Chief Just Floated Throwing (Democratic) Politicians in Jail

06 January 2018

(He became ICE's acting director that very night, when Trump unexpectedly demoted Homan's former boss.) "He was thoughtful and nuanced", a former Obama Administration official who worked closely with Homan in 2014, while implementing new enforcement priorities at ICE, said.

California Gov. Jerry Brown at a news conference in Sacramento, Calif., on May 11, 2017.

"If he thinks ICE is going away, we're not", he said. For one, sanctuary cities do not block immigration officials from making arrests within the city. California better hold on tight - they're about to see a lot more special agents, a lot more deportation officers in the State of California.

At least two fake signs welcoming "felons, illegals and MS13" to California's "sanctuary state" were removed from freeways near the border with Nevada and Arizona, according to news reports.

In an interview with Fox News's Neil Cavuto, Homan called the law "terrible" and said the state wants to "put politics ahead of public safety" and "officer safety".

When ICE sends detainer requests, they have to be ignored. Abbott also pulled $1.5 million in criminal justice grants from Travis County as punishment. "SB54 will negatively impact ICE operations in California by almost eliminating all cooperation and communication with our law enforcement partners in the state, voiding the delegated authority that the Orange County Sheriff's Office has under the 287g program, and prohibiting local law enforcement from contracting with the federal government to house detainees".

On Tuesday, Homan said that transnational drug cartels "are using this sanctuary state law as a selling point".

So, when can local law enforcement still talk to ICE?

If they're arrested and a background check shows a conviction for any one of the hundreds of offenses listed in the law, including many serious felonies - rape, murder, robbery - then law enforcement can notify ICE about the person's release date and when the day comes, they can transfer that person into ICE custody. The legislation, which went into effect at the start of the year, blocks law enforcement officials from asking someone about their immigration status and from holding an immigrant in jail to assist ICE.

Supporters of SB 4 believe the law will take criminals off the streets.

The raw nerve here was California's passage last year of a landmark "sanctuary state" law, an add-on to the sanctuary-city trend that in recent years has had towns from San Francisco to San Diego, along with hundreds across the country, essentially sheltering illegal immigrants from federal authorities by restricting local law enforcement from helping ICE agents. "Is there a shred of civility, dignity or intelligence left in this president or in this administration?"
