Mayor Bill de Blasio signs bills to avert the exile of immigrants

  • The mayor of New York City Bill de Blasio signed into law two bills that would significantly lessen New York City’s collaboration with federal establishment to avert the exile of immigrants who don’t present a public-safety threat. According to reports, the city authorities will not honor detainer requests from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement unless there is a judicial warrant and the person has been convicted of serious felony. The signed bills also terminate the existence of Immigration and Customs Enforcement at various city facilities.
