Recently the handling of civil immigration detainers by local law departments has been heavily scrutinized.
AILA Doc No. 12030672 | Dated January 23, 2012
H.R. 3808, introduced by Rep. Myrick (R-NC) on January 23, 2012, directs local law enforcement officers to verify the immigration status and take into custody individuals apprehended for a DUI charge when there is "reasonable ground to believe that the individual is an alien."
On 3/7/2012, the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration Policy and Enforcement will hold a hearing on H.R. 3808.
