The nation’s capital has officially become the latest safe haven for illegal immigrants.
District of Columbia Mayor Vincent Gray on Wednesday signed an executive order instructing police officers not to question people about their immigration status — even people who are arrested on other matters — unless immigration status is directly related to a criminal investigation.
Gray reasons that non-citizens’ access to the police and courts is greatly obstructed for fear that their immigration status will overshadow any attempt to provide important information in criminal investigations. In signing the order, Gray said he wanted to clarify that the local police in district are not in the business of enforcing federal immigration laws.
