  3. Lorella Praeli:

    In the Warrant Service Officer( WSO) program, as it is called, sheriffs deputies would receive one day of training. Unlike the more involved 287( g) ICE program, deputies would not interview a detainee to ascertain his or her citizenship and immigration status. Instead, they essentially would file a federal warrant, directing the local jail to hold a criminal alien for 48 hours after the scheduled release until an ICE agent shows up to take custody. It is cheaper and may allow sheriffs to act without violating sanctuary laws. Expect blowback and scrutiny from opponents. This program is just the latest scheme by ICE to enlist local police in its abusive deportation agenda, the agency explicitly aims to subvert the will of local communities that have passed ordinances to prevent exactly this kind of cooperation between police and ICE.
