Utah Agencies Resist Cross-Deputizing Officers for Immigration Duty

May 01, 2009  | 

Several law-enforcement agencies in Salt Lake County have expressed reservations about partnering with the federal government's immigration enforcer ahead of a new state law that gives them an opt-out option, according to a report from the Salt Lake Tribune.

Under a state law that goes into effect July 1, local agencies can choose whether to sign a resources-sharing agreement with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Such an agreement would enlist local officers in immigration investigations. The local agency would cover the officer's salary, while ICE pays for training and lodging.
