It's federal law, if the agency involved with the immigrant is federal (ICE), which it is, they should follow federal law. I'm so disgusted with Democrats lately. Should we uphold the 2nd amendment? Should we uphold immigration law? Should we uphold marijuana laws? Deportation laws? Enough generating and importing poverty into this country deliberately to garner political power at the expense of the American taxpayers. Enough coaching immigrants on asylum laws. Do your jobs .
