Illegal Immigration Issues for Local Law Enforcement

Target Audience:

Local law enforcement (City, County and State) including patrol officers and first responders, detectives and investigators, supervisors, managers, executive staff and policy makers.

Class Description:

City, county and state law enforcement officials are increasingly forced to confront issues related to illegal immigration, even though immigration to the United States is regulated through federal law.

New Presidential Executive Orders and a greater emphasis placed on existing federal laws, contracts between local law enforcement agencies and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, such as 287(g), recent court rulings and ongoing challenges make the issue of Illegal Immigration a rapidly changing and dynamic subject.  Some states are now beginning to institute specific legislation which dictates when a state or local law enforcement officer may or may not act on federal immigration laws.  The concern of profiling is commonly raised by the community when local law enforcement increase their role in cooperation with Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

This class will serve to inform students of the new developments regarding federal immigration laws and how they affect local law enforcement, how local law enforcement can use existing state laws in conjunction with possible federal immigration laws, and will also provide strategies on how to avoid profiling and increase trust in the communities they serve.
