Border Patrol are Refusing to Send Immigrants Suspected of Crimes to California to Face Trial

by Admin on June 20, 2018

Citing the state’s “sanctuary law”, which allows illegal immigrants to live there without fear of deportation, U.S. Customs and Border Patrol will not transfer some immigrants accused of crimes into California custody.

The confrontation is the latest escalation in tension between Californian authorities and the federal government and breaks from established law enforcement custody protocols.

Federal authorities argue that by handing over suspected criminals to California agencies risks that they will not be sent back to federal custody once their state case is resolved.

Now, Border Patrol is sending undocumented immigrants accused of crimes such as sexual assault or drug possession back to their home countries, or charging them with immigration-related crimes instead.
