MD County Halts 287(g) Program

MD
Anne Arundel County, Maryland

A newly-elected Democrat in Anne Arundel County, Maryland, has announced that the county will end its INA § 287(g) agreement with the federal government, the Washington Times reports. This means that county jail detainees will no longer be screened for immigration status by ICE officials.

It's an interesting development. One wonders how many of the "blue wave" elections across the country will result in similar changes to agreements between the federal government and local governments regarding immigration enforcement.
