Polk County Jail Refusing Immigration Detainers

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) The Polk County Jail is now among the growing list of local law enforcement agencies that are no longer honoring federal requests to hold suspected immigrants in jail without a warrant.

The Des Moines Register reports that Polk County Sheriff Bill McCarthy issued the order in early June.

The 48-hour immigration detainers are issued to local law enforcement by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency. They ask that immigrants who have been arrested be held for two days after they would normally be released to give federal officials time to initiate an investigation and take the person into custody for deportation, if necessary.

The practice is under scrutiny, and several agencies around the country have stopped complying with the requests.
