Thread: Feds Perched to Empower Local Cops to Enforce Immigration Laws

  1. #1
    Feds Perched to Empower Local Cops to Enforce Immigration Laws
    by Michelle Chen (bio)

    Unprecedented authority may soon wind up in the hands of police: departments nationwide would gain the prerogative to arrest people for immigration violations, whether they want it or not.


    May 27 - Last week, the House of Representatives passed legislation that would strengthen the power of local police officers to arrest undocumented immigrants whose only offense is their unauthorized status -- an authority that has historically resided with only with the federal government.

    Arriving in the midst of a major congressional push for immigration reform and closely following the passage of a ban on driver's licenses for undocumented immigrants, the proposed law enforcement policy reflects both the legislature's growing opposition to illegal immigration and a trend toward expanding federal influence over local jurisdictions.
