Quote of the Week


“The federal government depends deeply on state and local law enforcement agencies to help enforce federal immigration law. State and local agencies are far more likely than DHS to come into contact with deportable noncitizens, and state and local criminal justice systems are therefore enmeshed with the immigration enforcement bureaucracy. This integration gives local agents considerable power: They can feed the federal enforcement regime, or they can stymie it by refusing to cooperate.”

Adam Cox, coauthor of the new book, The President and Immigration Law.
