This new SB 54 law is making an already bad situation, much worse.
It basically handcuffs ICE when illegal alien criminals are taken custody in local police jails.
They can't and will not inform ICE of incarcerated illegal alien criminals, which they should have every right to do so, especially if dangerous or multi-felonious.
Police don't have to process these illegal alien criminals as immigrants, but they do process them as lawbreakers, and jail them as such. So, they should be able to at least notify ICE or other immigration enforcement that they have them. Simple ID checks should verify this. Everyone else has to show ID when arrested.
What's so hard and complicated about that?
Sounds like Stu is a criminal defense type and has no problem with police releasing illegal immigrant criminals due to a loop-hole in CA state laws.
If a legal citizen broke federal laws, and local police picked up and jailed them, do you think they DON'T contact the FBI or other federal enforcer to come and get them?
If illegal immigration is a federal agency issue, so are people breaking federal laws (bank robbery, etc;). They should get the same treatment, especially if multi-deported illegal criminal.
