Recently the handling of civil immigration detainers by local law departments has been heavily scrutinized.
AILA Doc No. 02070244 | Dated June 25, 2002
Senators Sam Brownback (R–Ks) and Kent Conrad (D–ND) have introduced similar legislation in the Senate (S. 2674). Like, H.R. 4858, S. 2674 would increase the number of available waivers to 30 per state. The Senate bill, however, would make the waiver program permanent.
The Conrad State 20 program was created by the Immigration and Nationality Technical Corrections Act of 1994 (Pub. L. No. 103–416) and extended under the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996 (Pub. L. No. 104–208).
