Fairfax County Sheriff Ends Deal With ICE To Hold Wanted Inmates (Patch)

Fairfax County Sheriff Stacey Kincaid is ending an agreement to hold inmates wanted by Immigration and Customs Enforcement past their release date unless ICE has a court-issued criminal detainer. She notified ICE of the decision Monday, and the change will take effect May 23.

During the booking process, the Sheriff’s Office checks residency status of anyone brought to jail. Fingerprints go into a state database, which local state and federal law enforcement agencies including ICE have access to. Under the agreement started in 2012, the Sheriff’s Office has kept updates up to 48 hours past the release date to be turned over to ICE.

The Sheriff’s Office will continue to cooperate with ICE investigations, which includes handing over an inmate to ICE up to five days before the scheduled release date. “We found it expedient to no longer have an agreement that required us to extend our resources beyond these obligations,” said Kincaid in a statement. “We remain committed to our mission and mandate.” [Read More]
