Donald Trump briefly halted ICE weekly report publications listing locations that neglect cooperation with federal immigration directives over issues concerning the accuracy of these records. Last month, Sarah Rodriguez made the lists available to the public. She explained the agency is performing an analysis of its methods of reporting. Rodriguez is Deputy Press Secretary for the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. She stated, “While this kind of evaluation is continuous, there will be a brief suspension in the publication of future reports."

ICE's intentions

The deputy appended that ICE looks to continue writing after performing the review, but she didn’t designate a particular time frame as to when exactly.

In a statement to the public, Deputy Rodriguez noted that her team continues to focus on publishing the correct information available regarding deported detainees all around the nation. ICE started out broadcasting the set of jurisdictions when the trump administration signed governing regulations a few months ago directed at increasing expulsions and more robust enforcement inside the United States.

The President's motive

Trump’s declarations call for different standards that target broadcasted offenses done by unlawful immigrants and block certain grants from the federal funding to sanctuary locations that neglect to cooperate with national detainer notices for immigrants with orders of deportation outstanding.

Administrative leaders say foreigners who commit criminal offenses have a tendency to be released and that is what poses a grave risk to America.

A few towns approved local laws prohibiting law enforcement from collecting citizenship information. They are concerned immigrants might face deportation or harassment even if they only committed minor infractions.

The Trump administration has detailed a huge selection of jurisdictions, including Maryland, Virginia, Texas, and California as states allegedly refusing to cooperate with federal authorities.

About a month ago, the city of Seattle, WA sued the government over the executive order Trump signed on sanctuary cities, describing the document as vaguely unconstitutional.

Rodriguez emphasized that her agency's weekly publications started meaningful discussions between law enforcement and ICE all over the U.S. She believes future revised statements shall intriguingly add more sparks to these debates.
