DHS Report Criticizes 287(g) Immigration Program

Rate this Entry

"A new federal report has criticized the Immigration and Customs
Enforcement's 287(g) program, which gives state and local law
enforcement agencies authority to enforce immigration laws. The
Department of Homeland Security Office of Inspector General found the
program does not have adequate safeguards against racial profiling and
other civil rights abuses. 

In addition, the report said local police
officers have misused the program by targeting undocumented immigrants
who have been arrested for minor offenses. The report states "g) program
is meeting its intended purpose, or that resources are being
appropriately targeted toward aliens who pose the greatest risk to
public safety and the community."

Critics of the program say many
immigrants will no longer call the local police help out of fear they
could be arrested and deported. Laura Murphy of the American Civil
Liberties Union said: "The 287(g) program, as this latest report
confirms, all but abandons the constitutional guarantees of fair
treatment and due process, and encourages racial and ethnic
profiling.""~Democracy Now!
