County ICE arrests exceed Manhattan, Philadelphia, report says
By Angela Woolsey

More than 12,000 Fairfax County residents are facing deportation proceedings, surpassing the number of cases in other major localities, including Manhattan, N.Y., and Philadelphia, Pa., and even states like North Carolina and Louisiana, a new report says. Titled “Special Report: Local police may be helping ICE make Fairfax a national leader in immigrant detention,” the report was published on Nov. 29 in The Blue View, an online affiliate of the Fairfax County Democratic Committee’s newsletter, by ACLU People Power Fairfax, a grassroots organization that opposes local cooperation with federal immigration authorities. Using data collected by Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse Immigration Project, ACLU People Power Fairfax lead advocate and study author Diane Burkley Alejandro says discrepancies between the database’s information and Fairfax County’s official numbers regarding U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement detentions raise questions about the relationship between local police and ICE.
