Another city decides not to help deport illegal aliens
It’s part of sheriff Paul Penzone’s new policy to protect illegal aliens from deportation, even if they've committed serious state crimes.
Under a longtime partnership between the county and the feds, the sheriff's office notified Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) when “aliens unlawfully present with additional Arizona charges” were released from the Maricopa County Jail. That ended when Penzone, who refers to illegal immigrants as “guests,” took office this year.
Though the sheriff formally announced the change just last week, it was actually started much earlier.
Of course I'm sure the released illegals won't commit any more crimes, so probably a good idea, eh?
