ICE says the gloves are off as California becomes a sanctuary state

Tom Homan, ICE acting director, said SB54 makes California a sanctuary state for undocumented immigrants, including those who have committed crimes, and nearly eliminates all cooperation with local police and its agents.

“ICE will have no choice but to conduct at-large arrests in local neighborhoods and at worksites, which will inevitably result in additional collateral arrests,” Homan said in a statement. “Instead of focusing on arrests at jails and prisons where transfers are safer for ICE officers and the community.”
