NYPD Commissioner Refuses to Follow President’s Immigration Orders

The Trump administration’s pursuit of unauthorized immigrants may have hit a wall in New York City, Aaron Katersky reports for ABC NEWS.

City Police Commissioner James O’Neill told officers in an internal memo that the department would not enforce administrative warrants issued by federal immigration agents.

“It is critical that everyone who comes into contact with the NYPD, regardless of their immigration status, be able to identify themselves or seek assistance without hesitation, anxiety or fear,” O’Neill wrote in the memo obtained by ABC News.

“The NYPD does not conduct civil immigration enforcement,” the memo to rank-and-file officers said. “Specifically, this department does not enforce administrative warrants issued by Immigration and Custom Enforcement agents or federal immigration judges solely in connection with civil immigration violations.” Read more at ABC NEWS.

  1. O’Neill is a useful dummy of the left. How this jerk got into power is beyond me. We have a commissioner who is telling us by example that we don’t have to follow the laws that we don’t like? Ok. I will try that. Now I will have a great defense in court.

  2. I am a trump supporter but on this one I agree with the NYPD. It should be the job of immigration officials to make sure these illegals don’t get in to begin with and if they get in don’t make us do your dirty work.
