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.

Constitutions are not designed for metaphysical or logical subtleties, for niceties of expression, for critical propriety, for elaborate shades of meaning, or for the exercise of philosophical acuteness or judicial research. They are instruments of a practical nature, founded on the common business of human life, adapted to common wants, designed for common use, and fitted for common understandings.
