The ACLU vs. the Rule of Law

aclu-vs-rule-law-steve-kingNational Review:

Immigration enforcement has been under attack since our current president was sworn in, despite his constitutional oath requiring him to “take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed.” The systematic breakdown of immigration law enforcement under the Obama administration has wrought severe consequences. We see hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens overwhelming the Border Patrol in Texas. Interior enforcement has dwindled to anemic levels, sending the message that if you break our laws, there are few consequences. Now, a new front in this war against the rule of law has come to Iowa. Twenty-two of 99 Iowa county sheriffs have bowed to the ACLU by refusing to honor Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainers on criminal aliens.

 

ICE detainer orders are to ensure that criminal aliens already in custody — usually of local law-enforcement agencies — will be held for up to 48 hours to give ICE time to assume custody. Detainer orders are issued for those who have committed serious criminal offenses; they are a commonsense way of helping local law enforcement and ICE conserve valuable resources while they protect our communities. ICE detainer orders are based on immigration law, which directs the Secretary of Homeland Security to promulgate regulations necessary to detain individuals who are subject to removal. Federal regulation covering detainer orders clearly states that an agency “shall maintain custody of the alien” if it receives an order.Scissors-32x32.png
