Arizona Police to Check Immigration Status of Suspects

Prensa Hispana, Lizeth Felix Posted: Mar 26, 2010

CHANDLER, Ariz.--After a unanimous vote by the City Council, a new proposal will allow police officers to ask the immigration status of a person suspected of committing a felony, reports Prensa Hispana. According to Police Chief Sherry Kiyler, the new policy will protect victims and people reporting crimes but won't save criminals from being referred to ICE if they are in the country illegally. Alexandra Soler Mettze, executive director of American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), expressed disagreement with the measure, saying it leaves the door open for the police to commit further acts of racial profiling. The proposal will alter standards that have been followed for more than 11 years.
