New Jersey Attorney General to Cops: Ignore ICE, Help Illegal Aliens Flee

The attorney general of New Jersey has made it official: The state will be a virtual sanctuary for illegal aliens.

Gurbir S. Grewal, shown, the state’s top law-enforcement officer and the son of Indian immigrants, published a directive last week, effective March 15, that forbids state and local police from helping Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Moreover, state and local authorities will not honor ICE detainers. That means localities can simply release illegal aliens back into the community.

Middlesex County adopted such a policy and released an illegal alien whom police had collared for domestic violence. The illegal alien went to Springfield, Missouri, police and ICE allege, and murdered three people.

Grewal is apparently unconcerned that it will happen again.

The Order
Grewal’s subversive “Directive Strengthening Trust Between Law Enforcement and Immigrant Communities” avers that “individuals are less likely to report a crime if they fear that the responding officer will turn them over to immigration authorities.”

So cops can ignore ICE when it needs help, wrote the Sikh attorney general:

[Police] are not responsible for enforcing civil immigration violations except in narrowly defined circumstances. Such responsibilities instead fall to the federal government. …

Although state, county, and local law enforcement officers should assist federal immigration authorities when required to do so by law … providing assistance above and beyond those requirements threatens to blur the distinctions between state and federal actors and between federal immigration law and state criminal law. It also risks undermining the trust we have built with the public.

In keeping with that leftist talking point, the attorney general stated that state and local police need not honor detainers from ICE because they are not warrants signed by federal or state judges.

The order does not forbid state and local authorities from “imposing their own additional restrictions on providing assistance to federal immigration authorities, so long as those restrictions do not violate federal or state law or impede the enforcement of state criminal law.” Indeed, Grewal “does not mandate that law enforcement officials provide assistance in any particular circumstance, even when, by the terms of the Directive, they are permitted to do so.”
