And that decision is still in effect today.
Immigration rights advocates are praising the recent decisions by the San Bernardino and Riverside county sheriff’s departments to no longer detain undocumented immigrants for the federal government without sufficient probable cause.
It is not a good thing. This twisted logic sounds like Sniff’s “Good Cause” BS related to CCW Permits.
Stan Sniff once again shows his true stripes when the chips are down – politics first, public safety last.
Riverside County has also stopped honoring the federal government’s request to hold inmates whose citizenship is questioned.
“It is up to ICE to work toward a reinstatement of immigration holds,” said Deputy Albert Perez, a spokesman for the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.
Got it? The Feds are supposed to know who is illegal, so we won’t help them anymore. Stan Sniff in 2014 contributed to the jail overcrowding and the crime problem. It is possible that part of the hatred between Dave Brown and Stan Sniff is the illegal alien crime wave that has hit Hemet as a result of Sniff’s policies that allow them to hide from ICE in Riverside County.
Enter the ACLU:
Tens of thousands of people statewide are detained under the 287(g) program daily, and the actions of the San Bernardino and Riverside county sheriff’s departments, as well as other law enforcement agencies following suit, will have a tremendous impact, said Jennie Pasquarella, a staff attorney with the American Civil Liberties Union of Southern California.
“It’s the right decision in regards to policy,” Pasquarella said. “This helps to ensure that the sheriff’s departments can continue to do their job, rather than expending their resources doing the work of the federal government.”
Stan Sniff has aligned himself with the ACLU an alarmingly high number of times. This should give anyone pause and should also inform everyone of Sniff’s lack of core principles. The ACLU is not a friend of law enforcement at all.
