NYPD won't round up immigrants under Trump's deportation orders

Police Commissioner James O’Neill had a defiant message for the President on Wednesday — saying his officers will not enforce administrative warrants issued by federal immigration officials as a result of the expansive deportation policies.

“It is critical that everyone who comes into contact with the NYPD, regardless of their immigration status, be able to identify themselves or seek assistance without hesitation, anxiety or fear,” O’Neill said in the sharply worded, 431-word internal memo to police officers.

“The NYPD does not conduct civil immigration enforcement. Specifically, this department does not enforce administrative warrants issued by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents or federal immigration judges solely in connection with civil immigration violations.

1. Good! We may not be able to stop ICE but we certainly should not make their job easy.

4. I know Police have been getting a bad wrap lately but I know a lot of them and...

... they're some of the best people I know. They are usually right wing and pro-state by nature... sort of have to be to have unwavering obedience... so I don't hold that against them. They're in a tight spot now and I'm glad to see such courage... my best wishes to all the Blue out there...

5. I am very glad to hear this. It doesn't end the fear of other enforcement entities though.

This is a sickening and viciously cruel program. The people who are creating it and enforcing it should go straight to hell.

8. Another aspect is that police already have a job with numerous duties.

Why are Republicans always trying to push the extra job of immigration control onto police, teachers, and health care workers who already have extremely demanding jobs to fulfill?

And none of this comes with any additional funding.

9. They shouldn't have to - its federal law, and they have their own officers

that's one of the big "sanctuary city" issues. Its not local law enforcement's job to enforce federal mandates. "Unfunded mandates" is the term - if congress wants something done, if SCROTUS wants something done, then let them use their own resources to do it.
