Donald Trump’s tough talk on immigration already has one county reversing its sanctuary city policy — and just weeks before the Jan. 20th inauguration.
Suffolk County Sheriff Vincent DeMarco announced that his county will no longer demand a judge’s order before detaining an illegal immigrant wanted by federal immigration officials, a major shift away from its previous sanctuary city policy, according to Newsday.
DeMarco said his policy reversal is not because of the incoming Trump administration’s expected legal fight against sanctuary city policies. Instead, he said the shift came after careful “legal analysis.”
Already, between December 1 and December 21, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) had taken seven illegal immigrants into custody who were living in Suffolk County.
DeMarco spoke highly of Trump’s call to deport illegals who have been convicted of criminal actions, saying “I do believe this is good public policy because it focuses on criminals.”
“We’re talking about people who entered the country illegally and have committed crimes and have been convicted of crimes,” DeMarco continued.
