Md. Won't Detain Immigrants Unless Probable Cause

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) -- Gov. Martin O'Malley has directed a state-run jail in Baltimore to only comply with federal requests to hold immigrants beyond their release date if there is probable cause that a crime has been committed.

The American Civil Liberties Union and Casa de Maryland praised the decision on Friday.

The policy adds an additional layer on to restrictions for detaining people that the Democratic governor outlined in April, when he narrowed reasons for honoring U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement detainers to people who were considered threats to public safety.

Being here illegally is a threat to my and all Marylanders safety! When one of them gets behind the wheel of an automible that is a direct threat to my safety because they face no consequence when they have an accident...they just disappear and the injured party is left with the cost!
