ICE Pulls Their Sanctuary City Shaming Policy

Has U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the Trump regime had a change of heart?

No, they've discontinued their reports on law enforcement agencies that refuse detainer requests, also known as Declined Detainer Outcome Reports, because they keep fucking it up.

From the New York Times:

For example, Nisha Agarwal, commissioner of the New York City Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs, said the ICE report incorrectly listed the city as being uncooperative even though it does assist the immigration agency.

Ms. Agarwal said the city responded to ICE requests to detain people who had committed a violent crime or who were on a terrorism watch list. It does not respond to requests for people who have been convicted of minor crimes or have had charges against them dropped, she said.

One of the nation’s largest counties — Nassau County, N.Y., on Long Island — was also listed as noncooperative in the first report. But the Nassau County Sheriff’s Department said it was one of the first localities in the nation to agree to accept administrative warrants from the agency.

Officials there said ICE had apologized for including the county in its initial report.

ICE also apologized to Franklin County, Pa., for including it on a list of the top 10 noncompliant jurisdictions. The county said it had been erroneously placed on the list even though it provides reports on prisoners to ICE and grants the agency access to inmates for interviews.

I don't know how comforting it is, but it may provide some relief to know that the Trump regime is so incompetent they can't even properly execute some of the terrible policies they've managed to advance through executive orders.

There are probably Trump supporters at some of these police departments who didn't appreciate being slandered. Suckers.

    Not knowing which law enforcement agencies were cooperating with ICE is a stunning bit of ineptitude.

    ICE couldn’t organize a two-car funeral if you spotted them the hearse. They couldn’t organize a booze-up at a brewery if everyone brought a glass. They couldn’t organize an orgy in a bordello. They couldn’t pour piss out of a boot if the instructions were printed on the heel.

    It figures this would happen during the Trump administration, where competence is looked on with suspicion.

      And why would you purposely pissed off the police department in one of these cities, those who might have save your sorry ass if they (ice) ever do run into a band of real criminals. And ice is a dumb, moronic name.

    Living up to the Republican belief that government is incompetent. No, silly. Only Republican government is incompetent.
