ICE rejects Denver's demands to not arrest illegal immigrants at court houses

SPREAD THE WORD:

The ICE has denied the request of not arresting illegal immigrants at court houses by Denver's mayor.

The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enfrocement has denied the request of Denver's mayor to cease making arrests at court houses. The practice has become widespread in areas like Los Angeles, where deportation cases are up over 60 percent.

The mayor of Denver has demanded immigration agents stop making arrests at the city's courthouse when illegal immigrants are scheduled for court hearings.

The Immigration and Customs Enforcement's response was but a word: no.

The showdown between I.C.E., who have recently upped the ante against illegal immigrants and raised deportation cases over 70 percent nationwide, and Denver mayor Michael Hancock has gained national attention after Hancock questioned if arresting illegal immigrants at court houses is having reverse effects on public safety.

"When witnesses and victims of crime are not showing up to testify, now we cannot pursue the individuals who have perpetrated crime. Now, how’s that make us more safe?” asked Hancock, reports CBS Denver.

However, the outlet notes ICE officials sent a clear denial to his demands. "ICE rejected that request," CBS stated.

According to one ICE official, the real danger stems from those breaking immigration law.

"By not turning over criminal aliens in a safe, secure environment, they’re actually putting my officers and the community at risk," said Phillip Miller, director of ICE's deportation agents.

ICE agents began making arrests at courthouses after describing an ongoing problem with locating illegal immigrants who are "hiding in the shadows". By targeting courthouses, officials hope to force the hand of undocumented immigrants in either surrendering - or furthering their crime by failing to appear to court.

The ICE has also faced the troubling problem of locating and arresting undocumented immigrants after sanctuary cities vowed to refuse President Trump's order to notify immigration authorities upon the detainment of criminal illegals.

Immigration officials have also been arresting illegal immigrants at federal court houses in Los Angeles, where deportation cases have surged after officials were directed to reopen once closed cases under previous President Barack Obama's administration.
