(No more extended holds without probable cause)….That is the decision of the local Sheriff’s Office.
A recent court decision released Sheriff’s Departments from participation from the Federal Secure Communities Program. Offices around the state are choosing to take advantage. San Diego County Sheriff’s Office recently announced they would not participate in extended holds of Immigration detainees, unless there was criminal cause. The Imperial County office has said says they will not ho0nor ICE detainees unless the request is accompanied by a federal judge’s order.
