Judiciary: Immigration Detainer Compliance Amendment

Friday, January 6, 2012


Room 412

The stated purpose of Bill 19-585 is to limit the circumstances under which the District will comply with a civil detainer request from United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Bill 19-585 would limit non-criminal hold periods to 24 hours, require federal reimbursement for the District's costs, and only permit the detainment of individuals who have been convicted of dangerous and violent crimes.
