According to an article in New York Times: “A day after New Jerseys attorney general, Anne Milgram, ordered local law enforcement agencies to start inquiring about the immigration status of the people they arrest, local officials and advocates for immigrants across the state began grappling with how the edict would change the already complicated relationship between the authorities and immigrants on the streets they patrol.”
There is a concept known as “community policing” that has proven effective around the world. A directive such as this one may have a chilling effect on the cooperation between the undocumented and police. Will be interesting to see where this goes.
On another note, the USCIS Update on the July EB I-485 Receipt processing delays is not out yet. It should have been issued yesterday. I will post the Update as soon as it becomes available.
