MORE TOP POLICE CHIEFS BACK IMMIGRATION REFORM

From the NY Times:

Seeking to inject their views into the revived debate over immigration
overhaul, several big-city police chiefs urged Congress on Wednesday to
draft a new policy that improves public safety by bringing illegal
immigrants out of the shadows.



The chiefs -- updating recommendations
made in 2006 by the leaders of more than 50 urban police departments --
called for an overhaul that would integrate immigrants into the legal
system, possibly with driver's licenses, and separate the local police
from immigration enforcement.



"We're in the business of
delivering a police service whether the person has had a car accident,
been a victim of a crime, or been a witness to a crime," said Chief
John Timoney of the Miami Police Department.



He added that immigrants needed to come forward without fearing "that they are going to wind up being reported to federal authorities and deported."





For all the rhetoric about law and order you hear from the antis, there seem to be a lot of police departments that just want these folks legalized and integrated into their communities.
