    National Sheriffs Association Supports E-Verify Mandate, 287g, and Full Enforcement

    National Sheriffs Association Supports E-Verify Mandate, 287(g), and Full Enforcement

    By Jessica Vaughan, March 1, 2012

    The nation's sheriffs are united in support of full enforcement of immigration laws and want to be involved. The sheriffs want Congress to provide more resources for enforcement, pay more attention to worksites (including mandatory E-Verify), and expand the 287(g) program according to a position paper developed by the group's Immigration and Border Security Committee and approved by the organization’s national board of directors.

    The first sentence reads: "It is critical that local law enforcement maintain and build upon the partnerships with federal law enforcement to ensure that collectively we can promote, protect, and preserve the public safety and homeland security."

    Other noteworthy recommendations include:

    •Enforce the immigration laws now on the books (as opposed to the current non-enforcement or worst criminals-only approach).


    •"NO reduction or shifting of current federal funds to state and local programs in order to pay for new federal immigration enforcement programs." (emphasis in original) This suggests opposition to the Obama administration's planned replacement of the popular and effective 287(g) program with the helpful and essential, but limited, Secure Communities program. The sheriffs also call for ICE to allow more new 287(g) programs.


    •Finish the fence, and get help from the military.


    •Detain and process all illegal aliens who are apprehended.


    •Mandate employer use of E-Verify and require the Social Security Administration to issue no-match letters. Legislation to accomplish this has been introduced in Congress by Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas) and Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa).


    •Prosecute employers who knowingly hire illegal workers (as opposed to merely inspecting their personnel files).

    The sheriffs also strongly state opposition to amnesty, while endorsing an undefined guestworker program.

    This position paper is important, because members of Congress typically value the input of the sheriffs in their districts. Sheriffs are uniquely qualified to speak out on the immigration issue by virtue of their understanding of the crime, security, and the fiscal issues caused by uncontrolled immigration, as described in our recent panel discussion featuring 10 sheriffs. And as elected officials they understand the needs of the voters they represent

    So the sheriff who is actively involved in the 287g program doesn't know what he's talking about, but you do?

    Come on, JohnDoe, you've been in this game long enough to know that the sheriff doesn't have the authority to continue the program without federal government authorization and assistance.

    In the United States, a sheriff is a county official and is typically the top law enforcement officer of a county. Historically, the sheriff was also commander of the militia in that county. Distinctive to law enforcement in the United States, sheriffs are usually elected. The political election of a person to serve as a police leader is an almost uniquely American tradition. (The Honorary Police of Jersey, a UK Crown Dependency in the Channel Islands, have been elected since at least the 16th century.)[1]

    The law enforcement agency headed by a sheriff is typically referred to as a sheriff's office or sheriff's department. According to the National Sheriffs' Association, an American sheriff's advocacy group founded in 1940, as of the end of 2008 there were 3,085 sheriff's offices and departments.[2] These range in size from very small (one- or two-member) forces in sparsely populated rural areas to large, full-service law enforcement agencies, such as the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, which is the largest sheriff's office and the seventh largest law enforcement agency in the United States, with 16,400 members and 400 reserve deputies. The average sheriff's department in the United States employs 24.5 sworn officers.

    Of the 50 U.S. states, 48 have sheriffs. The two that do not are Alaska (which has no counties), and Connecticut (which has no county governments and has state marshals instead of sheriffs)

    Sheriffs are elected to four-year terms in 41 states, two-year terms in three states, a three-year term in one state (New Jersey) and a six-year term in one state (Massachusetts).[3]

    In many rural areas of the United States, particularly in the South, the sheriff has traditionally been viewed as one of a given county's most influential political office-holders.

    Law enforcement officers working for an agency headed by a sheriff are typically titled sheriff's deputy, deputy sheriff, sheriff's police, or sheriff's officer, and are so-titled because they are deputized by the sheriff and charged with performing all the duties prescribed to the sheriff by that state's law. In some states a sheriff may not be a sworn peace officer, but merely an elected civilian official lacking police powers who oversees the department and its sworn peace officers. Law enforcement officers working for such departments may be subdivided, sometimes titled general deputy and special deputy.

    In some areas of the country, such as in California's San Bernardino, Riverside, Orange, and Ventura counties, the sheriff's office also has the responsibility of a coroner's office, and is charged with recovering deceased persons within their county and conducting autopsies. The official in charge of such sheriff's departments is typically titled sheriff-coroner or sheriff/coroner, and officers who perform this function for such departments are typically titled deputy sheriff-coroner or deputy coroner. The second-in-command of a sheriff's department is sometimes called an undersheriff or chief deputy, akin to the deputy chief of police position of a municipal police department. In some counties, the undersheriff is the warden of the county jail.

    287g program

    Immigration and Nationality Act Section 287(g)
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Jump to: navigation, search

    Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) Section 287(g), codified at 8 U.S.C. § 1357(g), was added to the INA by section 133 of the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act (Division C, Title I of the Omnibus Consolidated Appropriations Act of 1997, Pub.L. 104-208, 110 Stat. 3001, enacted September 30, 1996). Section 287(g) authorizes the Federal Government to enter into agreements with state and local law enforcement agencies, permitting designated officers to perform immigration law enforcement functions, pursuant to a Memorandum of Agreement, provided that the local law enforcement officers receive appropriate training and function under the supervision of sworn U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers. Under 287(g), with federal approval and training, ICE provides state and local law enforcement with the training and subsequent authorization to identify, process, and when appropriate, detain immigration offenders they encounter during their regular, daily law-enforcement activity.

    The March 2010 arrest of undocumented student Jessica Colotl sparked an intense debate around immigration issues, with Colotl's supporters calling for an end to 287(g).[1] Colotl was arrested in Cobb County, Georgia, which has 287(g) legislation, and faces deportation.[1]

    Davidson County, Tennessee claims they saved millions of dollars and reduced crime by deporting undocumented people under a 287(g) program in operation since April 2007. Thus far 8,000 illegal aliens that committed other crimes have been deported saving approximately $300,000 a week and allowing Davidson County to lease the extra jail space to other law enforcement agencies.[2]

    The National Sheriffs Association has issued a position paper supporting the expansion of 287(g), stating: "It is critical that local law enforcement maintain and build upon the partnerships with federal law enforcement to ensure that collectively we can promote, protect, and preserve the public safety and homeland security."[3]

    I didn't say the sheriff could DO anything.
    I assume that since the sheriff is activley involved in the 287g program he must be in contact with the officials in charge. Therefore he is more likely to have inside information than anyone who isn't involved and has NO contact with anyone in the program.
    But as always you are just looking for something, anything, to argue about.

    This is not an argument. It is a planning session! You two pull it together. Work together and stay frosty. All hell is breaking lose and the last thing we need is those on the same team snapping at each other. Friend up or separate.
