Delaware police agencies say they're not working as immigration enforcers
President Trump recently announced his administration is taking a proactive approach to targeting – and deporting – illegal immigrants living in the United States.
And while a federal program allows for the Dept. of Homeland Security to train local and state law enforcement officers to work as de facto federal immigration officers, no officers locally in Delaware say they’re participating.
Delaware locals like Georgetown’s Chief of Police R. L. Hughes says he personally doesn’t want his officers involved with immigration enforcement.
“Immigration is a federal – something that a federal agency should be handling," Hughes said. "That is not for local, municipal, county and in some state- state police.”
