ICE’s Ability To Perform Unlawful, Warrantless Arrests Now Limited

ICE policeA recent federal court decision in Illinois greatly restricts the ability of ICE to conduct warrantless vehicle stops and arrests.  Furthermore, it requires ICE to release anyone from detention if their arrest violates the new terms.  The ruling also requires ICE to retrain its officers.

ICE can arrest a person without a warrant, but it must determine that the person is likely to escape and that there is reasonable suspicion that the person does not have lawful status in the United States.  This was not the case in many of ICE’s arrests.
