Sheriffs Refusing to Put Hold on Immigrant Inmates for Feds
Newsmax ^ | 7/6/14 | Sandy Fitzgerald

Posted on 07/07/2014 9:11:05 AM PDT by Nachum

Dozens of sheriffs around the country are refusing to detain noncitizens convicted of crimes for extra time to allow the federal government to start deportation proceedings after a court ruling that one immigrant's civil rights had been violated when she was held without probable cause.

"When a judge says something is in violation of the Fourth Amendment, I am not going to just keep doing it," Sheriff William Gore of San Diego told The New York Times. "If they want to take someone into federal custody, the can decide to do that, but I am not going to keep holding somebody because they ask me to, and nothing more than that."

But the local decisions could limit the how the government enforces immigration law while decreasing the numbers of people deported each year.

Sheriffs started refusing to honor the federal detainee policy that asks them to hold inmates for up to 48 hours without probable cause for a criminal violation after this spring's ruling by a federal judge in Oregon.

The refusal quickly spread, with noncitizen offenders getting released as soon as they have done their time, rather than being held for the Department of Homeland Security.

Many of the sheriffs in California, Minnesota, Kansas, and Washington, as well as Oregon, said the court decision forced their action in the interest of self-protection, rather than anything to do with their positions on immigration.

In June, California Attorney General Kamala Harris sent out an advisory telling law enforcement departments they could face lawsuits if they abide by the federal government's detainer requests.

So does local law enforcement have to enforce federal gun laws? Can we pick and choose on all the laws?

No wonder people have started to revolt, just as I have predicted.

But why wouldn’t a Federal Detainer Request be considered probable cause??? At least for purposes of holding the Sheriffs’ actions harmless?

Right, come on into the socialist utopia of the USA. No need to do it legally, and what you'll get is free food, free medical, free room and board, never work again! The citizens of the US will do it for you! All you have to do is say you'll vote Democrat, and the Republican party will just sit on their hands and look like this.......

ruling by a federal judge in Oregon.

The States and localities are going to have to start ignoring these black robed tyrants.

"[a] strict observance of the written law is doubtless one of the high duties of a good citizen, but it is not the highest. The laws of necessity, of self-preservation, of saving our country when in danger, are of higher obligation. To lose our country by a scrupulous adherence to the written law, would be to lose the law itself, with life, liberty, property and all those who are enjoying them with us; thus absurdly sacrificing the ends to the means." - Thomas Jefferson

Personally, I think instead of state and local officials around the country wondering what the Feds will do, litigate or otherwise impede enforcement and adjudication of local justice PER LAW, the Feds should be wondering about whether they are too complacent about arriving home safely at night.

So glad you posted that Count.

Why on earth do we follow laws in our fight to save ourselves from those who do not follow the laws who want to end us?

Just don’t even right down names of illegals. Just take them back. It. Never. Happened.

Once you stop following rules promulgated by the enemy, things become easier.

First it was the Dreamer children. Then it was the massive influx of who knows what from where. Now it is criminals. Funny how illegals get better treatment than most Americans would at the hands of this tyrant obama.

Obama picks and chooses which laws he will enforce. So why can’t everyone else pick and choose what laws they will obey?

How about because your government will take everything you’ve worked for if you refuse.

That’s why having nothing to lose is a benefit.....

Methinks the federal government is collapsing under it’s own weight.

‘Obama picks and chooses which laws he will enforce. So why can’t everyone else pick and choose what laws they will obey?’

He is the lawless one we were warned about. No longer any reason to support the Feds with your money or anything else. Cover them up with paperwork and work under the table if at all possible. Starve the beast.

Most of the locals are no better. Protest any rise in property taxes, protest common core, protest road blocks, protest anything you can think of. Any business local or otherwise who supported or still supports Zero and his policies refuse to spent your money with em, starve them out. Cut off any one you know who has an Zero sticker on their car, in general, shun them.

Let them know why. I dropped my barber last week after several years when his assistant let me know her side won. Screw em.

Ever wonder why you get a tax break to buy and own a house? They want you locked in. I have owned a couple of homes but rent now and will never buy another. Thinking of a house boat, kinda hard to keep track of a moving target.
