New Jersey’s new procedures for law enforcement when dealing with immigrant communities and federal authorities are now in effect. After state Attorney General Grubir Grewal outlined the new “Immigrant Trust Directive” back in November, all agencies were to establish policies and train officers regarding the directive by this past Friday.
The “Immigrant Trust Directive” says all levels of NJ law enforcement:
- Cannot stop, question, arrest, search, or detain any individual based solely on actual or suspected immigration status;
- Cannot ask the immigration status of any individual, unless doing so is necessary to the ongoing investigation of a serious offense and relevant to the offense under investigation;
- Cannot participate in civil immigration enforcement operations conducted by ICE;
- Cannot provide ICE with access to state or local law enforcement resources, including equipment, office space, databases, or property, unless those resources are readily available to the public;
- Cannot allow ICE to interview an individual arrested on a criminal charge unless that person is advised of his or her right to a lawyer.
