Massachusetts - Cops increasingly denying requests to hold illegals

    Jack Encarnacao Tuesday, January 10, 2017

    Federal immigration officials have been increasingly blown off by Boston-area authorities when they ask that illegals in police custody be detained for possible deportations, according to new U.S. data.

    The pushback from the Hub area bucks a national trend that has seen a sharp drop in the number of detainer requests by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement that have been denied by local law enforcement.

    The data, obtained from ICE by the Herald, shows the Boston ICE office — which covers all of New England — saw 59 of its requests to hold on to arrested immigrants denied last year. That’s up from 56 in 2015 and just 18 in 2014.

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin
