Cobb, Gwinnett end 287(g) immigration programs, work to build trust
By Arielle Kass

Monthly ICE reports detail some of the people who have been detained. In the last few months in Cobb County, those people include a Jamaican citizen who had been sentenced to ten years for armed robbery and a Mexican citizen who drove on suspended license and failed to yield to a pedestrian at crosswalk. In Gwinnett, they include a citizen of El Salvador who was charged with aggravated child molestation by sodomy. And in Hall County, a Mexican citizen was also arrested for drug trafficking. Hall continues to participate in the program. Politics or safety? Austin Kocher, a geographer at Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse — a research institute that analyzes federal data regarding immigration enforcement — said the program is more about politics than safety.
