Grewal’s New Rules: NJ Sheriffs Can No Longer Hold Immigrants Charged With Crimes For ICE

New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir S. Grewal on Thursday ordered county sheriffs to ignore ICE detainers if a local judge orders the release of a suspected illegal immigrant who’s been charged with a crime.

Grewal also prohibited police and jail operators from holding a detainee arrested for a minor crime “past the time he or she would otherwise be released from custody simply because ICE has submitted an immigration detainer.”

Not only that, he forbade them from even notifying ICE of their release.
