Feds Prepping for Massive Immigration Sweep in Northern California

Our View: Raiding the base economy

John Eastman, a law professor at Chapman University in Orange County, said ICE is taking the right approach in potentially targeting San Francisco and other Bay Area cities.

Many prepare amid rumors of ICE crackdown in Bay AreaHe reminded Immigration and Customs Enforcement that any sweeps must be done according to federal law and the constitution.

The agreements will enable local law enforcement to hold illegal immigrants in jail longer so that officers from ICE will be able to pick them up.

How would ICE execute the sweep?

In a targeted operation on sanctuary cities and regions that deny ICE access to jails and prisons this past September, immigration officials arrested 128 people in Los Angeles and Santa Clara counties.

Chris Christie gave his approval Monday to a ban on bump stocks in the state that critics say is redundant. On Tuesday, the governor signaled he would still like to raise taxes on the rich.

In October, California Governor Jerry Brown (D) signed legislation to make California a "sanctuary state", which prohibits local law enforcement officials from enforcing federal immigration law.

ICE would like localities to hold illegal immigrants for up to 48 hours beyond their normal release time, giving deportation officers a chance to come collect them.

Hinojosa also notes that beyond pandering to President Donald Trump's anti-immigrant base, numerous worker arrests land them in immigrant detention centers operated by private enterprises that reportedly back Trump. California lawmakers approved legislation a year ago making it a sanctuary state in 2018. "Sanctuary cities knowingly and intentionally release criminal aliens, who are already in the country in violation of the law, back onto the streets where they can reoffend in the very communities they live in - threatening public safety". "These type of enforcement activities terrorize communities, create chaos, and hurt local economies", he says, adding that workers have the right to an attorney and "ICE can not barge into a facility without a search warrant or court order". "ICE will continue its efforts to protect jobs for American workers by eliminating unfair competitive advantages for companies that exploit illegal immigration". "It's starting to create a little bit of panic in our community and that makes it unsafe for all of us".

"If you are an administration devoted to enforcing federal law and you're not getting any cooperation whatsoever from local officials, then devoting more resources to actually enforce federal law in those jurisdictions is perfectly appropriate", Eastman said.

"America's more than 3,000 Sheriffs across the nation are grateful to the administration, Department of Homeland Security, and the superior leadership of Deputy Director Homan, for listening and working with us to advance and implement this commonsense solution", NSA CEO and Executive Director Jonathan Thompson said.
