Report: New Jersey Jail Refused 92 Detainer Requests for Illegal Aliens

A New Jersey county jail refused 92 immigration detainer requests for criminal illegal aliens to be deported, according to a report released Friday by the Immigration Reform Law Institute (IRLI).

The report cited U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) records on law enforcement agencies which failed to acknowledge ICE detainers and revealed that the Middlesex County Jail in New Jersey did not honor a total of 92 immigration retainers.

Of the 92 immigration retainers denied by the jail, 52 of them were for serious crimes — classified by ICE as Level 1 and 2 offenses— such as homicide, sexual assault, and fraud.

Isn't there some way those NJ officials could be charged criminally and also be held liable when the released persons commit crimes.

If they won't honor Federal detainers, take their Federal money. Not complicated. All Federal money!
