Minneapolis, MN On Jan. 12, immigrant rights activists protested outside the Hennepin County jail, demanding that Sheriff Stanek stop using the jail as a deportation machine. More people are deported from the Hennepin County jail than from any other jail in the state.
The protest was organized by the Minnesota Immigrant Rights Action Committee (MIRAc). MIRAcs No More Deportations campaign is targeting Sheriff Stanek, demanding that he change policy in the Hennepin County jail to stop cooperating with the Secure Communities deportation program, by ceasing to honor ICE hold requests. Jail-based deportation programs like Secure Communities are the main source of deportations and separation of families, which have reached record numbers, with well over a million deportations in the last four years.
When people are booked into county jails, they are now run through a national Secure Communities database and ICE flags people they want to interview. So even if a person is arrested without cause and isnt charged with anything (as happens quite commonly with Latino, Black and Native people in Hennepin County), they still go through the booking process and can end up getting deported.

Yeah, six guys don’t really make a protest. Two of them probably just came along to impress their girlfriends. And at least one guy was probably paid by union guys to attend. If I’d been the Sheriff...I’d come out with coffee and donuts for the folks and offered them a patrol car to sit in and warm up every half-hour.
So even if a person is arrested without cause and isnt charged with anything...So quit protesting and sue, if this is true (and I doubt very much it is).
Liberals are liberals because they don't understand math!
Hennepin Co. pop.: 1.2 million
next most populous is Ramsey Co., pop. 500 thousand
There really should be more counties competing harder for this title.
Good! these people aren't "immigrants," they're illegal aliens!
So, let me get this straight. The illegal wants the Chief LEO in the county to do something illegal in order to further the illegal plans of the illegal?
OK. Got it.
Now, go pound sand, MIRAc, in Mexico (the old one...).
Stop it? Heck speed it up! If you are here illegally, deportation is what you should expect. If it were up to me, I’d charge you for the bus ride back to the border.
That Sheriff should give these protestors free coffee and donuts for doing so much for his reelection.
“Immigrant rights activists” is just a fancy liberal name for illegal aliens.
Sheriff to activists: "Fine, we won't deport them if you will pay to keep them housed in the jail. They are breaking the law and I won't burden the local taxpayers to foster more lawbreaking. As soon as your checks start showing up, the deportations will slow down until your money runs out..."
