The Department of Homeland Security released guidelines this week that clarify the enforcement of President Donald Trump’s executive order on immigration. Not only does the new order greatly expand the pool of immigrants considered a priority for deportation, it also seeks assistance from local police forces by reviving the 287(g) task force model. Participating police departments would act on enforcing immigration law while performing their traditional duties. This could mean traffic stops, or stops on the street, for people who may appear to be undocumented. Police Chief J. Thomas Manger of Montgomery County, MD, and leader of the Major Cities Chiefs Association, says the vast majority of police departments don’t want that to happen. He sits down with Soledad O’Brien to explain the ideal Immigration-police relationship and how partnering with ICE could make neighborhoods more dangerous.
