Conn. sets limits on giving immigrants over to ICE
Wednesday - 6/26/2013, 7:38pm EDT
NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) -- Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has signed a law setting limits on turning immigrants over to federal authorities for possible deportation.
State authorities will honor requests to detain only immigrants who have felony convictions, belong to gangs, show up on terrorist watch lists, are subject to deportation orders or meet other safety risks.
Supporters say Connecticut is the first state to adopt such a law since a federal program for sharing arrestee fingerprints with immigration authorities was enacted. They say the law was needed to ensure immigrants cooperate with police without fear they will be turned over to immigration authorities.
The Secure Communities information-sharing program was activated statewide last year.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials say their agency focuses on convicted criminals and other public safety threats and the federal government sets the priorities.
