Massachusetts’ highest court will decide whether local authorities in the state may comply with detainers issued by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

Critics of the detainer policy argued that it is unconstitutional for state authorities to make civil arrests on behalf of the federal government.

But law enforcement officials said that a state may work with the federal government if they want, Molly Line reported.

The Justice Department, siding with state authorities, said any constitutional questions regarding states being banned from working with federal officials are unfounded.

    How would MA officials react to an order if the offense would be non-payment of child support? This would also be a civil issue for another agency, but I bet they would not hesitate to hold that individual. So I guess that it is just the type of crime they choose to enforce. How would MA feel if, say, Texas ignored a detainer on charge of gun possession that might not be a crime in Texas (something like open carry of a firearm)? If TX just released a person on that offense, how quickly would the MSM or the Democrats (redundant), or the State of MA raise all kinds of heck? They are all for ignoring crimes they feel should not be enforced, but not dare try to turn it around.

      The motive behind the effort to not arrest illegals is because illegals vote Democrat.

    If we get to ignore the laws we don’t like then I would like for us to ignore the Supreme Court decisions legalizing gay marriage and abortion.

    If state law enforcement officials are unwilling to enforce federal law, the federal government should withhold federal grants from the state. Each state that chooses not to enforce federal immigration law endangers every person in America.

  • Walter Flatt says:

    IN ALL STATES OR CITIES THAT DO NOT GO ALONG WITH CATCHING ILLEGALS, FEDERALIZE THE POLICE FORCE IN THAT CITY, OR STATE LIKE THEY DID OUR STATE GUARDS. THIS WOULD TAKE CONTROL AWAY FROM THE MAYOR & OR GOVERNER.

    YOU AND THIS GOVERNMENT HAD BETTER WORRY ABOUT THE MUSLIMS HERE AT HOME.

    PUBLIC LAW 414, PAGE 2, SECTION 212, WAS PASSED IN 1952 THAT BANS ALL PEOPLE TRYING TO DESTROY OUR COUNTY, AND MUSLIMS QUALIF TO BE DEPORTED. READ THE QURAN, THEIR BIBLE.

    COULD IT BE THAT OBAMA HAS SET US UP FOR HIM TO LEAD A MUSLIM INVASION OF OUR COUNTRY? READ THEIR BIBLE, THE QURAN.

    IF NOT,

    WHY ARE THERE 5 MUSLIM CAMPS IN N. VIRGINA, CLOSE TO DC.

    WHY TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMO AND TAKE OUR GUNS.

    WHY ALLOW IN EXCESS OF 36 MUSLIM CAMPS. (PERHAPS HUNDREDS)

    (BUILD A FEMA CAMP IN EVERY STATE? SOME STATE HAS MORE THAN ONE. BUILT AND SUPPORTED BY YOUR TAX MONEY.

    WHY, WHILE IN OFFICE, DID HE SET HIS CABINET WITH MOSTLY MUSLIMS.

    WHY, WAS HILLIARY’S TOP AIDE A RADICAL MUSLIM,

    LAST WHY, DID OBAMA SEND BILLIONS TO HIS MUSLIM FRIENDS.

    It is the law of the land that we call America and too many, even judges don’t seem to know it, like the one who let the illegal go through her office in the back. The laws are clear, there is no question what they say.

    The problem is that under O the Lawless and Socialist/Communist Left were running a muck, following the leader O and stomping on everything that is law and order and the Constitution. Congress was castrated, many still are, the RINO and nobody even attempted, until the end of O’s Reign of Terror, to trip O and all up. Finally a Judge did stop O’s Dreamers and he took his lawyers to the ropes and slammed them against the posts.

    When a child runs the household and the parents allow it, really hard to get that child back in the box. It takes therapy and hours of retraining to get the family unit up and running and save it from the ruin it almost suffered.

    Thus the obnoxious and wayward children in this country will take years of therapy via being reintroduced to the laws of our land to get back on track, if they can, so brainwashed don’t know, but new generations coming up and that we can make sure doesn’t go in the wrong direction. Taking out the Department of Education and giving all back to the states good start.
