I’m guessing the Trump admin isn’t going to like this.
SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — The city of Spokane has agreed to change its policies to make clear that police officers will not question or detain people to enforce federal immigration laws.
That’s part of a final settlement the city reached Tuesday in federal court with the ACLU of Washington and the Northwest Immigrant Rights Project.
The case stems from a 2014 traffic accident when the vehicle of Gabriel Gomez was struck by a minivan that failed to yield the right of way
A Spokane police officer responded and contacted the U.S. Border Patrol to ask whether the agency had any interest in Gomez.
The officer issued a ticket to the other driver and then let that driver leave the scene. However, the officer detained Gomez until the Border Patrol arrived and took him into custody.
