Although President Donald Trump's administration has presided over a sharp decline in illegal border crossings and taken the shackles off Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers, it apparently has done little to crack down on businesses that hire illegal immigrants. ICE officials said they did not have statistics for the current fiscal year on job-site enforcement, but immigration experts said there is little anecdotal evidence that the administration has stepped up enforcement from the previous regime. "I have not heard of anything like that," said Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Washington-based Center for Immigration Studies. "It could be there... [Read More]

Under the law, elected officials could lose their jobs, police chiefs could go to jail, and governments could face fines of up to $25,500 a day if they adopt or enforce policies that prevent law enforcement officers from asking about a person's immigration status or complying with requests to detain immigrants, a job that has been chiefly the responsibility of federal agents. The faceoff comes amid rising tensions nationwide over the Trump administration's crackdown on immigration, and its relentless march forward despite a string of losses in federal courts. On Friday, congressional aides said House Republicans are... [Read More]

Citing a federal law that requires law enforcement to cooperate with federal immigration authorities, the Justice Department wrote, "that is precisely what a state or local law enforcement officer does when complying with the federal government's request contained in an immigration detainer or general inquiries concerning immigration status." The DOJ also voiced support for a provision of the law requiring local law enforcement officials to honor... [Read More]

The Iraqi immigrants arrested in a Detroit-area immigration sweep this month cannot be deported for at least the next 14 days, a Detroit federal judge ruled late Thursday. More than 100 Iraqi nationals were swept up by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement in raids earlier this month. The government says they all have standing removal orders and criminal records, and their deportations were imminent. Most had been living in the U.S. for years under ICE supervision. But the Michigan ACLU sued to stop that . They say the plaintiffs face possible persecution, torture or death if returned to Iraq,... [Read More]
