Immigration is big news currently and it is important to be aware of the relationship and tensions between state and federal law when it comes to immigration.
Immigration is the international movement of people into a destination country of which they are not natives or where they do not possess citizenship in order to settle or reside there, especially as permanent residents or naturalized citizens, or to take up employment as a migrant worker or temporarily as a foreign worker.
Anyone arrested will have their fingerprints run through a database to check their immigration status under a federal program known as ‘Secure Communities’.
Immigrants must provide one certified or original copy of the following documents:
In addition to ‘Secure Communities’, the 287g program exists in three Florida counties; Collier, Duvall, and Bay. Police officers are deputized to act as ICE agents. As ICE agents they can enforce immigration authority on the streets and in jails. Any person who is arrested and driving without a valid driver’s license can be questioned by these ICE agents wanting to learn their immigration status.
