How Sanctuary Policies Shield Criminals From Feds
By Charlotte Cuthbertson

The number of detainers lodged by ICE increased substantially after President W. Bush introduced Secure Communities back in 2008. Under the program, the fingerprints of every individual arrested and booked into custody -- including U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents -- are checked against immigration records via the FBI. The same trend is repeated in all seven other major metro areas, according to analysis using numbers obtained by Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse project. The number of detainers lodged by ICE, as well as those honored by local law enforcement, plummeted from fiscal 2014 to 2015 and then dropped again in fiscal 2016. Five of the seven areas have sanctuary policies.
