LAPD to stop honoring federal requests to detain illegals accused of low-level crimes

December 12, 2012

via¬†Newser – Under new plan, police won’t detain anyone not suspected of a felony.

The LAPD will soon stop honoring federal requests to detain illegal immigrants for deportation if they are only accused of low-level crimes, under a new plan approved by the Los Angeles Police Commission today. The plan should kick in early next month, the LA Times reports. Commissioner John Mack called the new policy an “enlightened first step,” but immigrants rights groups are opposed to it, arguing that it doesn’t go far enough to protect illegal immigrants.
