NYPD Is Giving Information To ICE

Will Racke DCNF 

There are many proposals and plans that try to answer the important question of what to do with the millions of illegal immigrants currently in the country. One of those solutions is the concept of deportation.

According to Daily Caller

The New York Police Department (NYPD) routinely verifies warrants with the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) despite Mayor Bill de Blasio’s promise to keep New York a sanctuary city, a practice that activists ripped as “collusion” with federal immigration authorities.

In the standard process of checking if a defendant has outstanding warrants, NYPD contacts relevant law enforcement agencies, including ICE, which signals that an immigrant has an upcoming appearance in city court. As a result, ICE agents sometimes show up to take custody of the defendant in the courthouse.

In one example, the New York Daily News reported, a NYPD administrative aide notified ICE about the arrests of David Gonzalez, 51, and Milton Chimborazo, 35.

Gonzalez, a convicted felon, had previously been deported and had illegally reentered the U.S., and Chimborazo, who was arrested for burglary, had a standing deportation order. ICE agents took Gonzalez into custody after a judge released him but chose not to detain Chimborazo for unknown reasons.

Public defenders representing the two illegal immigrants said they were stunned that NYPD communicated with immigration agents in advance of their clients’ initial appearance in front of a judge. Under the city’s sanctuary law, signed by DeBlasio in 2014, police only honor detainer requests from ICE in cases where a defendant has been convicted of serious or violent felonies.
