“Dozens of local police departments are reportedly checking the immigration status of people they arrest as part of the Trump administration’s crackdown on undocumented immigrants, according to a Reuters investigation through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.
Since Trump’s inauguration in January, 29 police departments have joined a federal program that grants local law enforcement authorities the authority to question and to detain suspected undocumented immigrants and turn them over to federal authorities for potential deportation proceedings. An additional 38 jurisdictions told Reuters that they had already applied or were “potentially interested” in joining the program, known as 287(g). The number of interested jurisdictions was not previously reported, according to the publication.”*
