Some Great News Today!!! – Federal agents conduct immigration enforcement raids in at least six states

U.S. immigration authorities arrested hundreds of undocumented immigrants in at least a half-dozen states this week in a series of raids that marked the first large-scale enforcement of President Trump’s Jan. 26 order to crack down on the estimated 11 million immigrants living here illegally.

The raids, which officials said targeted known criminals, also netted some immigrants who did not have criminal records, an apparent departure from similar enforcement waves during the Obama administration that aimed to just corral and deport those who had committed crimes.

Trump has pledged to deport up to 3 million undocumented immigrants with criminal records. Last month he also made a change to the Obama administration’s policy of prioritizing deportation for convicted criminals, substantially broadening the scope of who the Department of Homeland Security can target to include those with minor offenses or no convictions at all.

Immigration officials confirmed that agents this week raided homes and workplaces in Atlanta, Chicago, New York, the Los Angeles area, North Carolina and South Carolina, netting hundreds of people. But Gillian Christensen, a spokeswoman for the Department of Homeland Security, which oversees Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), said they were part of “routine” immigration enforcement actions. ICE dislikes the term “raids,” and prefers to say authorities are conducting “targeted enforcement actions.”

Christensen said the raids, which began Monday and ended Friday at noon, found undocumented immigrants from a dozen Latin American countries. “We’re talking about people who are threats to public safety or a threat to the integrity of the immigration system,” she said, noting that the majority of those detained were serious criminals, including some who had been convicted of murder and domestic violence.

Immigration activists said the crackdown went beyond the six states DHS identified, and said they had also documented ICE raids of unusual intensity during the past two days in Florida, Kansas, Texas and Northern Virginia.

Casa De Maryland (Gustavo Torres) Trying To Exert Pressure On PG and MoCo For Sanctuary Law – Maryland group seeks immigrant protections

Maryland’s largest immigrant advocacy group plans to push for legislation in Montgomery and Prince George’s counties that affirms protections for undocumented immigrants, a measure similar to one that spawned a bitter debate and executive veto in Howard County this week.

Gustavo Torres, executive director of CASA de Maryland, told a meeting of immigrant advocacy groups Wednesday that he wants county law to reflect longtime practices in the two liberal and ethnically diverse suburbs, which generally limit collaboration by police and corrections personnel with federal deportation authorities.

New statutes are needed, he said, as President Donald Trump attempts to crack down on undocumented immigrants nationwide.

“We want to keep Montgomery as a welcoming county,” said Torres, announcing that he planned to speak with County Council members next week. “We want to clarify and send a very strong message that all agencies in Montgomery County are not going to collaborate with this administration.”

Torres’ plan represents a potentially significant escalation of state and local resistance to a Trump executive order that lays the groundwork for denying federal funding to “sanctuary” communities.

CASA and other advocates are working with state lawmakers to pass the Trust Act, which is based on a California measure and would bar police and sheriff’s departments, for example, from complying with federal requests to hold undocumented prisoners beyond their release date.

But the outlook for the bill, sponsored by state Sen. Victor Ramirez, D-Prince George’s, is uncertain. It has yet to be filed in the House of Delegates, although Del. Marice Morales, D, District 19, has said she will sponsor the proposal.

Gov. Larry Hogan, R, has signaled little interest in limiting the reach of federal immigration enforcement. Shortly after taking office in 2014, he reversed the policy of his Democratic predecessor, Martin O’Malley, and agreed to notify U.S. authorities when an undocumented immigrant targeted for deportation was released from the state-run Baltimore city jail.

Torres said the political environment at the state level makes it all the more important that similar legislation be pursued in local jurisdictions.

“We don’t know if the governor is going to sign this,” he said.

He vowed that his group will put pressure on cities and counties with the strongest records of protecting immigrant populations from federal law enforcement.

That strategy fell short this week in Howard. County Executive Allen Kittleman, R, on Thursday vetoed legislation approved 5 to 4 by the County Council that would have codified policies that bar police from asking about immigration status of criminal suspects, victims or witnesses.

Despite amendments that softened the bill’s language – excluding a declaration, for example, of Howard as a “sanctuary” jurisdiction, a legally vague but politically volatile term – Kittleman called the legislation an empty gesture offering only “a false sense of security” to undocumented immigrants. He said the county’s established police and corrections practices provide more than adequate protection.

Officials in Montgomery and Prince George’s also express confidence that existing policies need not to be codified into law – as well as concern that doing so could place them in the crosshairs of Trump’s attempts to cut off federal funding.

Montgomery County Executive Isiah Leggett, D, has repeatedly assured immigrant groups that they have nothing to fear from local law enforcement, and that what he calls the “Montgomery way,” a body of policies and practices emphasizing tolerance and understanding, will not falter.

At a news conference outside the immigration meeting at the Silver Spring Civic Center, Leggett said he wasn’t convinced of the need for a new law.

“I don’t see the necessity at this point in time,” he said. “I’m not saying we may not get to that point . . . but I don’t think that we’re there yet.”

Montgomery police operate under a 2009 departmental directive that bars officers from “indiscriminate questioning” about citizenship or immigration status. Any arrest must be based on state or local charges.

Late Notice HSM Action Alert – Today – Maryland General Assembly – HB272 To Protect Illegal Aliens In Maryland

If you choose to, please call the House Appropriations Committee which is preparing to hear testimony on HB 272 on Tuesday February 7, 2017 at 1:00 pm and let them know your thoughts on HB 272.
What is HB 272: Establishes sanctuary campus status for public institutions of higher education in the State with respect to specified federal immigration policies and requirements. This legislation prohibits an institution from releasing specified information concerning the immigration status of its students. The bill would also require federal immigration officials to provide a 10 day notice to an institution before entering the campus of the institution. Institutions would be required to offer financial aid, assistance, and services to specified students; etc. This legislation also makes provisions to continue to finance (in a myriad of ways) those who would be affected should DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) be reversed, including providing legal aid, medical insurance, housing.
Why should you care? This is a new entitlement program, and would impose a mandate on local government. Funds may be needed for additional staff, off space etc. to assist student, possibly further impacting financial aid and assistance to other Maryland residents.
Sample letter:
February 6, 2017
Chairwoman Maggie McIntosh
House Appropriations Committee
House Office Building 121
Annapolis, Maryland 21401
Dear Chairwoman McIntosh:
I am writing to you in opposition of HB 272, legislation regarding Public Institutions of Higher Education – Sanctuary Campus Status. This legislation, as you are aware, imposes a mandate on local governments, and would require public institutions of higher learning such as Montgomery County Community College, to provide an array of services, including legal, medical and housing to students affected by the federal Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), and in particular, if it is reversed. I personally know families who are long time legal residents, and are struggling to obtain financial aid, which during the past several years has become increasingly difficult to qualify. . In particular, I have no doubt, that should DACA be reversed, that there will be even less money available, as it is set aside funding for legal, medical, housing and tuition for those students.
I am therefore requesting that you vote no on HB 272, should it come up for a vote.
