ICE Report shows which Cities are Releasing Dangerous Criminals Back on the Streets – is Yours One of Them?

The debate over illegal immigration and so-called “sanctuary city” policies can sometimes get heated and passions can get enflamed. Often during these debates the pro-sanctuary side will argue that “sanctuary” policies do not create a more dangerous climate for the community, but a recent report from the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency would seem to dispel that notion.

The February “declined retainer” report from ICE shows that the agencies declining to support ICE often release violent criminal offenders back on to their streets.

The report showed that in just the week of February 4-10th 47 retainer requests were openly denied and among those released were criminals with convictions for assault, domestic violence and DUI. Even more worrisome, as ICE notes in their report, “law enforcement agencies (LEA) do not generally advise ICE of when a detainer is not honored, and therefore this report represents declined detainers that ICE personnel have become aware of during their enforcement activities.” So the actual number of denied retainers is likely much higher than the “reported” number.

ICE also laid out the worst offenders in the nation, those jurisdictions that refuse to comply with our laws and do little to help ICE keep our country safe.

From the Daily Caller:

Between February 4 and February 10, ICE issued 2,285 detainer requests nationwide. Of those, 540 were sent to 10 jurisdictions that ICE says “do not comply with detainers on a routine basis.” Those 10 counties are:

  • Los Angeles, California
  • New York, New York
  • Kern, California
  • Clark, Nevada
  • San Diego, California
  • Orange, California
  • San Bernardino, California
  • Santa Barbara, California
  • Travis, Texas
  • King, Washington

The report states “currently, uncooperative jurisdictions prevent ICE from knowing when an alien has been released from custody. Consequently, active detainers exist for aliens who are no longer incarcerated. The field offices are in the process of reviewing outstanding active ICE detainers, potentially affecting the list of jurisdictions listed in future reporting periods.”

 This is what the lawlessness looks like.

Constitution.com 🇺🇸

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
