    The sanctuary jurisdictions are listed below. These cities, counties, and states have laws, ordinances, regulations, resolutions, policies, or other practices that obstruct immigration enforcement and shield criminals from ICE — either by refusing to or prohibiting agencies from complying with ICE detainers, imposing unreasonable conditions on detainer acceptance, denying ICE access to interview incarcerated aliens, or otherwise impeding communication or information exchanges between their personnel and federal immigration officers.

    A detainer is the primary tool used by ICE to gain custody of criminal aliens for deportation. It is a notice to another law enforcement agency that ICE intends to assume custody of an alien and includes information on the alien’s previous criminal history, immigration violations, and potential threat to public safety or security.

    The Center’s last map update reflected listings in an ICE report published on March 20, 2017.

    THE ICE REPORT… link above….

    ENFORCEMENT AND REMOVAL OPERATIONS Weekly Declined Detainer Outcome Report  For Recorded Declined Detainers Jan. 28 – Feb. 3, 2017

    Summary

    Pursuant to section 9(b) of Executive Order 13768, Enhancing Public Safety in the Interior of the United States, and section H of the Secretary of Homeland Security’s subsequent implementation memo,

    Enforcement of the Immigration Laws to Serve the National Interest, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is making available for public release the non-Federal jurisdictions that release aliens from their custody, notwithstanding that such aliens are subject to a detainer or similar request for

    custody issued by ICE to that jurisdiction.

    For instances of such release, the report also includes the associated individual’s citizenship, detainer issued and declined dates, and notable criminal activity.

    ICE compiled this report based on jurisdictions with detainers that were recorded as declined

    between January 28, 2017, and February 3, 2017, regardless of detainer issuance date

    It should be noted that law enforcement agencies (LEA) do not generally advise ICE of when a detainer is not honored, and therefore this report represents declined detainers that ICE personnel have become aware of during their enforcement activities.

    This report is comprised of four sections:

    • Section I:

    Highest Volume of Detainers Issued to Non-Cooperative Jurisdictions

    between January 28, 2017, and February 3, 2017

    • Section I

    I: Jurisdictions with Recorded Declined Detainers Broken Down by Individuals Released

    between January 28, 2017, and February 3, 2017

    • Section III:

    Table of Jurisdictions that have Enacted Policies which Limit Cooperation with ICE

    • Section IV: Report Scope and Data Fidelity

    Virgil Goode on Immigration

    Constitution Party presidential nominee; former Republican Representative (VA-5)

    Moratorium on green cards until unemployment is under 5%
    OBAMA: I want to build on the five million jobs that we’ve created over the last 30 months in the private sector alone. And that means we change our tax code so we’re giving incentives to companies that are investing here in the US and creating jobs here

    GOODE: To get jobs in America, neither President Obama nor Governor Romney are focusing on some of the key issues. First issue, we need to eliminate illegal immigration, keep illegals from coming into this country, taking jobs from American citizens. Secondly, we need to have a near-complete moratorium on green card admissions to this country until unemployment is under 5%. We give thousands of green cards per year to working-age persons that come into the US, take good-paying jobs from students that had just graduated. We need to preserve jobs in America for American citizens first. it is one thing we could do right away to have jobs in America for American citizens first.

    Source: Democracy Now! Expanded Second Obama-Romney 2012 debate , Oct 16, 2012

    Illegals’ presence here steals jobs from American citizens
    Q: What do you plan on doing with immigrants without their green card that are currently living here as productive members of society?

    ROMNEY: We should give green cards to people who graduate with skills that we need. [But] I will not grant amnesty to those who’ve come here illegally.

    OBAMA: Young people who come here, brought here oftentimes by their parents, have gone to school here, understand themselves as Americans in every way except having papers, then we should make sure that we give them a pathway to citizenship.

    GOODE: We need to totally end illegal immigration, rewarding persons who come here with jobs, which the questioner asked about is the wrong way to do it. If you are in this country illegally, stealing a job from an American citizen, I’m going to do all I can to put an American citizen in that job and not somebody that has crossed our border, come into the country and violated our laws. Jobs in America should be for U.S. citizens first.

    Source: Democracy Now! Expanded Second Obama-Romney 2012 debate , Oct 16, 2012

    Use entire AZ law as model for US, not just E-Verify
    OBAMA: [Romney] called the Arizona law a model for the nation. Part of the Arizona law said that law enforcement officers could stop folks because they suspected maybe they looked like they might be undocumented workers and check their papers.

    GOODE: Romney clarified what he said about the Arizona legislation. He was only saying that E-Verify was a model for the country. I say the whole bill in Arizona was a model for the country, and if I’m elected president, my attorney general is going to be supporting Arizona. We will also be supporting Alabama. We’re going to stop illegal immigration and stop the coddling and catering that is exhibited by the Obama administration and that will be followed through by Romney.

    Source: Democracy Now! Expanded Second Obama-Romney 2012 debate , Oct 16, 2012

    No green cards for foreigners diplomas; US citizens first
    ROMNEY: I think that we should give green cards to people who graduate with skills that we need, people around the world with accredited degrees in science and math, get a green card stapled to their diploma, come to the U.S. of A.

    GOODE: I am the only candidate that will not be in favor of attaching a green card to a foreign student’s graduation diploma. We need to have U.S. citizens first in our American institutions. I’ve got stacks of recommendations and requests for students in high school level to go to colleges that had been rejected and replaced with foreign students. We need to preserve U.S. college admissions for U.S. citizens first, instead of trying to bring in everyone from every country around the world. It’s time for a president to put citizenship first, and I will.

    Stop illegal aliens & terrorists on our Southern border
    Illegal immigration must stop. Our borders must be secure. In Congress, I supported and cosponsored legislation to stop illegal aliens, terrorists, drug smugglers, and other criminals from coming across our Southern border. We need to utilize troops, fences, and other measures to stop the invasion from Mexico. I was the first to sponsor legislation providing for a fence along the Southern Border. We must continue to fight for funding and for adequacy of the fence.

    Source: 2012 presidential campaign website goodeforpresident2012.com , Apr 21, 2012

    End anchor babies and reduce legal immigration
    We must end the anchor baby situation, whereby a child of illegal aliens is an automatic citizen of the United States. I oppose granting amnesty for those persons who come into the United States illegally. Amnesty did not work in the 1980s. Amnesty did not work in the 1990s, and it will not solve the problem now. Amnesty only encourages more illegal entry into the United States. Legal immigration must be reduced not increased.

    End diversity visas to limit Muslim immigration
    If American citizens don’t wake up and adopt the Virgil Goode position on immigration there will likely be many more Muslims elected to office and demanding the use of the Koran. We need to stop illegal immigration totally and reduce legal immigration and end the diversity visas policy pushed hard by President Clinton and allowing many persons from the Middle East to come to this country. I fear that in the next century we will have many more Muslims in the United States if we do not adopt the strict immigration policies that I believe are necessary to preserve the values and beliefs traditional to America and to prevent our resources from being swamped.

    The Ten Commandments and “In God We Trust” are on the wall in my office. A Muslim student came by the office & asked why I did not have anything on my wall about the Koran. My response was clear, “As long as I have the honor of representing the citizens of the 5th District, the Koran is not going to be on the wall of my office.”

    Voted YES on building a fence along the Mexican border.
    Within 18 months, achieves operational control over U.S. land and maritime borders, including:

    1. systematic border surveillance through more effective use of personnel and technology; and
    2. physical infrastructure enhancements to prevent unlawful border entry

    Defines “operational control” as the prevention of all unlawful U.S. entries, including entries by terrorists, other unlawful aliens, narcotics, and other contraband.

    Proponents support voting YES because:

    It is obvious there is no more defining issue in our Nation today than stopping illegal immigration. The most basic obligation of any government is to secure the Nation’s borders. One issue in which there appears to be a consensus between the Senate and the House is on the issue of building a secure fence. So rather than wait until comprehensive legislation is enacted, we should move forward on targeted legislation which is effective and meaningful. The legislation today provides over 700 miles of two-layered reinforced fencing, and for the rest of the border provides a virtual fence, via integrated surveillance technology.

    Opponents support voting NO because:

    Just to build the fence is going to cost us at least $7 billion. Where is the money coming from to pay for it? How much is it going to cost to maintain this 700-mile fence? Who is going to do it? This bill contains no funding.

    This bill also ignores real enforcement measures, like hiring more Border Patrol personnel, and instead builds a Berlin Wall on our southern border. So long as employers need workers in this country, and while our immigration systems impede rather than facilitate timely access of willing workers to those opportunities, undocumented immigration will never be controlled.

    Walls, barriers, and military patrols will only force those immigrants to utilize ever more dangerous routes and increase the number of people who die in search of an opportunity to feed and clothe their families.

    Reference: Secure Fence Act; Bill H R 6061 ; vote number 2006-446 on Sep 14, 2006

    Voted YES on preventing tipping off Mexicans about Minuteman Project.
    Voting YES on this amendment supports the Minuteman Project, a group of volunteers who have taken on surveillance of the Mexican border for illegal immigrants. The amendment states that US funds will not be used to tell the Mexican government about the whereabouts of the Minuteman Project volunteers. Proponents of the Minuteman Project say that they are volunteer citizens doing what the federal government SHOULD be doing, but has failed to do. Opponents of the Minuteman Project say that they are vigilantes at best and anti-Mexican racists at worst. The amendment states:

    None of the funds made available by this Act may be used to provide a foreign government information relating to the activities of an organized volunteer civilian action group, operating in the State of California, Texas, New Mexico, or Arizona, unless required by international treaty.

      The amendment’s sponsor said on its behalf:

    • What this amendment does is it clarifies Congress’ position on a Border Patrol practice or a practice of the US Government that tips off illegal immigrants as to where citizen patrols may be located.
    • As a response to the lawlessness along the Mexican border, a group has sprung up called the Minutemen Project, and the Minutemen Project is definitely not politically correct in Washington DC. However, they filled a void which the government was unable to fill.
    • There are over 7,000 volunteers in the Minutemen organization, and their help has been productive and good.
    • What my amendment does is simply says that the U.S. Government cannot tip off the Mexican officials as to where these folks are located. Plain and simple, nothing fancy about it. I am sure the Border Patrol will say, oh, no, we are not doing that, and yet one of the Web pages of the Secretary of Mexico had the information very explicit, and we just do not believe that is a good practice.

    Voted YES on reporting illegal aliens who receive hospital treatment.
    Vote to pass the bill that would require hospitals to gather and report information on possible illegal aliens before hospitals can be reimbursed for treating them. The bill would also make employers liable for the reimbursements if an undocumented employee seeks medical attention, unless the employer meets particular conditions for exemption. The bill would specify that hospitals aren’t required to provide care to undocumented aliens if they can be transported to their home country without a significant chance of worsening their condition.

    No student visas from countries that support terrorism.
    Goode co-sponsored against student visas from countries that support terrorism

    OFFICIAL CONGRESSIONAL SUMMARY: To limit the issuance of student and diversity immigrant visas to aliens who are nationals of Saudi Arabia, countries that support terrorism, or countries not cooperating fully with United States antiterrorism efforts.

    SPONSOR’S INTRODUCTORY REMARKS: Rep. PAUL: The US remains vulnerable to terrorist attacks more than a year after the tragedy of 9/11. Our borders remain porous–a virtual revolving door and welcome mat for those who would seek to harm us. This was never more evident than when news broke some time ago that the INS had actually renewed the visas for several of the 9/11 hijackers after the attack had taken place. We cannot prevent terrorism if we cannot keep terrorists out of our country.

    This bill will deny student and “diversity” visas to anyone coming from a country currently on the State Department’s list of terrorism-sponsoring countries. It may seem shocking that citizens from these countries can even still receive these visas, but it is true. We must put a lock on this revolving door if we are going to protect Americans from the continuing threat of terrorism on our soil.

    Further, it is time we face reality regarding Saudi Arabia. We must remember that most of the 9/11 hijackers were Saudi nationals. Also, when al-Qaeda supporters were rounded up from Afghanistan, reports showed that of the 158 prisoners, more than 100 were Saudi nationals. With such an evident level of involvement from Saudi nationals in these activities, it is quite obvious that the Saudi government is not doing all it can, or all it should, in resolving this urgent problem. Therefore, Saudi citizens will also be denied student and “diversity” visas to the United States under this bill.
