Immigrant detainees. Legal or illegal immigrants??? you are either one or the other. Now if one is talking about illegal immigrant detainees, how nice that ice has created more paperwork and cost to taxpayers and given law breaking invaders from another country more rights. Dis country is all upside down. Any old illegal can now get directions about civil rights or civil liberties complaint. Im sure Eric the red and his boss are behind this one. What a joke. Close the border. This administration should be held responsible for all crimes committed by illegal border jumpers for the blatant failure to secure our borders and protect US citizens. Any plus potential illegals see in our system only encourages more illegal border activity.

Only a judge can determine who is “illegal” and who isn’t. People that ICE places on detainers are those who are under the control of local jurisdictions, so they won’t be released until their status is determined.

for those who believe they are citizens or may be victims of crime.

This part is a little confusing. Can someone elaborate?

While not common, there have been a number of instances of U.S. citizens being “deported” because they weren’t given access to an attorney to act on their behalf or informed of their rights.

There have also been allegations that some who have been jailed in the immigration system — citizens, legal residents and illegal aliens — have been victimized under the color of law.

@Dylan Smith

citizens, legal residents and illegal aliens — have been victimized under the color of law.

I’ve read some stories about some ICE agents and Border Patrol agents being unable to keep their penises to themselves around female detainees. Is that what you’re referring to, or were you referencing something different?

National I.D. would take care of a judge determining who is illegal. Cant speak english, doesnt have a visa or entry card, doesnt know the capital of Utah. Just put Sheriff Joe on the phone with detainee. He can tell him his rights and determine if hes legal or illegal. Close the border to end this costly problem.*&$$# Mexico.

do local jurisdictions have the capacity, money, inclination or wherewithall to hold detainees? In many cases I think not.  Therefore this is another well disguised rule to allow illegal aliens many of them criminals to escape our law. It will happen.  There will be many illegal aliens released, escaping our laws and committing crimes in our country.George Sorros and his puppets strike again. Close the border.

@buddhaboy

Detainers aren’t a mandate for a local jurisdiction to permanently hold someone whose immigration status is in question — that wouldn’t be legal. They are requests by the feds to hold someone who has been picked up for a local offense until they are able to be processed into the federal system, so that they aren’t released. You seem to be arguing against a process that was set up to forestall the very problem you allege.
