Int 0486-2014 *Melissa Mark-Viverito  Persons not to be detained by the department of correction.IntroductionThe federal Immigrations and Customs Enforcement Agency (“ICE”) files an “immigration detainer” with the Department of Correction (“DOC”) when they believe an individual in DOC custody is subject to removal from this country. In filing such immigration detainer, ICE makes a request that the DOC detain the individual for up to 48 hours beyond when they would otherwise be released so that custody of the individual may be transferred to ICE. This bill would significantly restrict the conditions under which the DOC complies with these ICE requests. The DOC would only be permitted to honor an immigration detainer if it was accompanied by a warrant from a federal judge, and also only if that person had not been convicted of a “violent or serious” crime during the last five years or was listed on a terrorist database. Further, the bill would prohibit DOC from allowing ICE to maintain an office on Rikers Island or any other DOC property and would restrict DOC personnel from communicating with ICE regarding an inmate’s release date, incarceration status, or court dates, unless the inmate is the subject of a detainer request that DOC may honor pursuant to the law.Hearing Held by Committee  Action details Not available

Int 0487-2014 *Melissa Mark-Viverito  Persons not to be detained by the police department.IntroductionThe federal Immigrations and Customs Enforcement Agency (“ICE”) files an “immigration detainer” with the New York City Police Department (“NYPD”) when they believe an individual in NYPD custody is subject to removal from this country. The immigration detainer serves as a request that the NYPD detain the individual for up to 48 hours beyond when the individual would otherwise be released so that the individual’s custody may be transferred to ICE. This bill would significantly restrict the conditions under which the NYPD complies with these ICE requests. The NPYD would only honor an immigration detainer if it was accompanied by a warrant from a federal judge, and also only if that person had been convicted of a “violent or serious” crime during the last five years or was listed on a terrorist database. The bill would also allow the NYPD to honor an immigration detainer even if not accompanied by a judicial warrant if the subject had been convicted of a “violent or serious” crime or is a possible match on the federal terrorist watch list and had previously been deported.Hearing Held by Committee  Action details Not available
