You know, when I saw the the headline "Report: Many immigrants re-arrested after detainers declined"
on a Yahoo News link that Linda Thom
forwarded, I thought it meant that police had decided that if ICE wouldn't take these people, they'd have to lock them up again.
But in fact, it's the opposite of that—it was ICE that wanted them deported, and the local police who refused to cooperate.
As for the rearrests, the immigrants had to arrange those themselves, by committing more crimes.
A government report released Monday shows more than 1,800 immigrants who federal agents sought to deport were nevertheless released from local jails and later re-arrested for various crimes.
