Center for Immigration Studies: NYC Police Ignore 440 ICE Detainer Requests

Center for Immigration Studies: NYC Police Ignore 440 ICE Detainer Requests

Law enforcement personnel in New York City ignored 440 requests from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) over a three-month period, said a report from the Center for Immigration Studies.

Forty of the detainees, after authorities released them, committed more crimes and were arrested again, the report said.

ICE got the results from studying the months from January to mid-April of 2018, the Center’s report said.

"In just three months, more than three dozen criminal aliens were released from local custody. Simply put, the politics and rhetoric in this city are putting its own communities at an unnecessary risk," said the acting field office director for ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations in New York, the report said.

ICE published examples of individuals who were released, then committed more crimes.

  • A man from China, age 43, who was arrested for criminal possession of a controlled substance-7th was re-arrested in April for criminal possession of a controlled substance-5th, which is a felony.
  • A man, age 28, was released after being returned on a warrant of criminal trespassing. He was released in February, then rearrested in April for grand larceny of a credit card.
  • A 20-year-old from Guatemala, was arrested over injuring a person aged 65 or older, and was arrested again in March for resisting arrest.
