Chiefs oppose police immigration role

Washington, DC, Dec. 1 (UPI) -- The world's largest group of law enforcement executives said Wednesday it opposes legislation to compel police enforcement of immigration laws.

The International Association of Chiefs of Police said it opposes the Clear Law Enforcement For Criminal Alien Removal Act, and urged "Congress to proceed with caution when considering measures that would compel local and state law enforcement agencies to enforce federal immigration laws."

In a release, the IACP said it took the action, its first-ever position on immigration, after a careful review of the impact that enforcing immigration law could have on state, tribal and local law enforcement and the communities they serve.

The proposed CLEAR Act would penalize states by withholding federal assistance funds if they fail to authorize state and local law enforcement agencies to enforce immigration laws. It would also penalize state and local law enforcement agencies by withholding federal assistance funds if agencies fail to meet detailed reporting requirements about suspected illegal aliens who are apprehended.
