    Booting 11 million from the US laughable, former Seattle chief says

    Booting 11 million from the US laughable, former Seattle chief says

    BY KIPP ROBERTSON, MyNorthwest.com Writer | September 4, 2016 @ 7:48 am


    The idea of booting about 11 million undocumented immigrants out of the United States with the help of local law enforcement is laughable. At least that’s what a former Seattle police chief says.

    Claims by Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump that police already know who illegal immigrants are and they could help round them up for deportation is out of the realm of possibility, Norm Stamper says.

    Municipal and county police are just that, Stamper says. They are not ICE, not border patrol. If an officer in Seattle, for example, encounters someone who is involved in a crime and is undocumented, the officer(s) will not have a hand in deporting them, according to Stamper.


    “The thought of city cops rounding up illegal immigrants is beyond my comprehension,” he added.


    That’s how most understaffed police departments probably feel about the subject. In Seattle, a city where officials are working to increase the number of officers on the streets, adding even more duties is something that would raise eyebrows. Officers have been stretched so thin in the past in Seattle that neighborhoods have paid for private security because residents don’t feel enough policing is being done.


    Though Stamper says some jurisdictions have taken on the idea that police are supposed to enforce all laws, most departments do not focus on all of them, including federal.


    “When you’re talking about 11 million people in the country, that’s an awful lot … and do we want to use law enforcement on immigration round up?” Stamper asked. He says he hopes the answer is no.


    Should local police be enforcing all laws — state and federal? Many in Washington would most likely hope not; all those legal pot shops would quickly be shut down.

    Trump never used the term "mass deportations." That's a media term for deporting illegal aliens in the US in accordance with US Immigration Law which is what Trump is going to do. There will be no "mass". There will be consistent, quiet, swift, legal deportations until they are all gone. There will be no herds, no rail cars, just police officers and ICE agents doing their jobs according to law, every day, everywhere.

    It used to be, when our immigration laws were enforced, if the police had an encounter with someone and asked for ID, and they are not an American, no visa to be here, immigration officers are called to pick up. Sanctuary city meant the police did not have the right to ask @ your immigration status and turn you over to ICE even if a crime is committed.

    Same with a citizen being able to report a suspected illegal, hope we can again have someone answering that phone and responding, taking a report and following up on the lead. INS had a citizens "tip" line that conveniently became busy all the time when the gov't decided to fill the country with illegals .

    The public, police & immigration officers can work together again when an illegal is encountered. Police would not be doing a federal job; they encounter the criminal act of being in the country illegally and pass the person on to the federal channels.
    That is how it worked before and can again.
