LAPD Won't Turn Over Some Illegals, Chief Says
October 05, 2012
The Los Angeles Police Department will refuse to turn over some arrestees to federal immigration authorities under a new policy announced Thursday by Chief Charlie Beck.
Beck said the LAPD won't honor Immigration and Customs Enforcement "detainer" requests for most undocumented immigrants arrested for public nuisance offenses or low-grade misdemeanors.
It will still honor the requests, Beck said, for people charged with felonies, drunken driving or crimes of violence, as well as those suspected of gang membership and those with prior felony records.

Let me guess, the next job for the LAPD will be transporting these ILLEGAL tresspassers to the welfare office, then to the local fake ID site, then pick up the kids from school and then home. Wonderful. And of course all the LAPD Officers will have to learn spanish so as not to stress the illegals too much. Whatever happened to enforcing the law? In cali it has been replaced with ignoring everthing that has to do with the law. So much for The Job. Blues, stay safe.
