Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillespie says his department will no longer hold illegal immigrants unless the federal government has a warrant. The department says the policy change is because of recent court decisions which have questioned the hold process by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
By some estimates, there are thousands of undocumented immigrants living in the Las Vegas valley. Metro Police has followed suit with cities like Los Angeles, Chicago, and Philadelphia that have all said they will no longer honor ICE immigration holds without a warrant.
One local attorney says for illegal immigrants, it meant being housed locally at taxpayers expense, while the federal government took too long to deal with the situation.
Attorney Jerry Stuchiner is a former immigration officer that worked for the border patrol for almost 20 years. "Very simply, it's a violation of the 4th Amendment, Stuchiner said. "There was a case in Oregon, which precipitated all of this, in April of this year, called Olivares vs. Clackamas County, where a man was finished with the State of Oregon, and ICE put a hold on him and he sat for an extra 14 days. They violated his rights, and the District Court said this is wrong."

I’ve never lived anywhere with more illegals.
It’s a well known secret the all-powerful Culinary union is instrumental in them getting false papers
I had to laugh when the article said thousands of illegals. I would not be shocked if the real number was 100,000.
