Sanctuary Jurisdictions declined 47 detainer requests last week that had been issued by Immigration and Customs Enforcement. These jurisdictions rejected detainer requests for illegal aliens who had been charged or convicted with crimes, including domestic violence, sexual assault, and assault.
Twenty-four of the detainer requests had been issued since Pres. Trump took office.
The details were included in the administration’s second weekly report that lists jurisdictions that have policies ordering officers not to cooperate with ICE, the detainer requests issued to those jurisdictions, and detainer requests that have been rejected.
