Broward County Sheriff Modifies ICE Detainer Policy

Broward County Sheriff Modifies ICE Detainer Policy

Becky Sharpless writes: "In a new policy announced on Friday, the Broward Sheriff's Office will no longer honor ICE detainers, unless the request for detention is supported by an order of removal or an administrative arrest order. A copy of the policy is attached.  Please report any implementation issues with the new policy to the Litigation Committee co-chairs, Michael Vastine,mvastine@stu.edu<mailto:mvastine@stu.edu>, and Becky Sharpless, rsharpless@law.miami.edu<mailto:rsharpless@law.miami.edu>.  This policy change was the result of efforts of the Broward Public Defender's Office and a coalition of community-based and legal groups, including the Florida Immigrant Coalition, SEIU, the Law Offices of Kurzban, Kurzban, Weinger, Tetzeli & Pratt P.A., and the Immigration Clinic of the University of Miami School of Law."
