Preliminary Injunction Blocks Use of Faulty ICE Detainer Database

Gonzalez v. ICE, Sept. 27, 2019

"For the foregoing reasons, concurrently with adopting the above findings of facts and conclusions of law, the Court shall issue a permanent injunction enjoining ICE from issuing detainers to state and local law enforcement agencies in states where there is no explicit state statute authorizing civil immigration arrests on detainers and enjoining ICE from issuing detainers to Probable Cause Subclass members based solely on database searches that rely upon information from sources that lack sufficient indicia of reliability for a probable cause determination for removal."
