According to an article on allamericanpatriots.com: “New Jersey Attorney General Anne Milgram said today that a Newark police officer improperly questioned witnesses to a crime scene about their immigration status in violation of a state law enforcement directive that specifically prohibits police from inquiring about the immigration status of any victim, witness or person requesting police assistance. Milgram recommended that the police officer be disciplined and recommended training on the immigration directive for all Newark police officers.”
Community Policing has been successfully implemented in many parts of the country and around the world. Law enforcement has to earn the public trust. If witnesses to violent crimes refuse to come forward for fear of immigration-related consequences, society as a whole will lose out.
