ICE threatens 'at-large arrests' after California passes sanctuary city law
The Department of Homeland Security's Immigration and Customs
Enforcement agency rebuked Gov. Jerry Brown, D-Calif., on Friday for enacting a
statewide sanctuary law for illegal immigrants, and said the decision will
prompt a higher number of raids that target that population.
"Governor Jerry Brown's decision to sign SB54 and make
California a sanctuary state for illegal aliens – including those who have
committed crimes – will undermine public safety and hinder ICE from performing
its federally mandated mission. The governor is simply wrong when he claims
otherwise," acting ICE Director Tom Homan said in a statement.
"ICE will have no choice but to conduct at-large arrests in
local neighborhoods and at worksites, which will inevitably result in
additional collateral arrests, instead of focusing on arrests at jails and
prisons where transfers are safer for ICE officers and the community,"
Homan added. "ICE will also likely have to detain individuals arrested in
California in detention facilities outside of the state, far from any family
they may have in California."
The new state law was signed into law Thursday and
prevents law enforcement in any jurisdiction of the state from asking people
about their immigration status. It also prohibits state and local officers from
responding to ICE requests to detain an illegal immigrant who has been arrested
for committing a crime for 48 hours until the person can be transferred into
"It also bans unconstitutional detainer requests and
prohibits the commandeering of local officials to do the work of immigration
agents," Brown wrote in a statement about the California Values Act.
However, Homan said the decision will "negatively
impact" the agency's operations in the state to such an extent that ICE
may incidentally arrest others who would not initially be targeted as they
conduct enforcement operations of criminal and noncriminal illegal immigrants.
"Despite the severe challenges that this law creates for
ICE, we remain committed to our public safety mission and we will continue to
do our sworn duty to seek out dangerous criminal aliens and other immigration
violators. ICE seeks straightforward cooperation with all sheriffs and local
elected officials. This misguided legislation will severely undermine those
efforts," Homan added.
