Detainers Violate Federal Law
October 10, 2016
Northern District of Illinois immigration detainers have violated federal law by detaining individuals without a warrant. Malpractice of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is to blame. The Federal Court has outlawed detainers from executing warrant-less arrests under ICE. This new ruling comes as a relief to many immigrant communities that are targeted. For more information, see article.
