“The jail-to-deportation pipeline is mostly grounded at the county level, where the civil immigration and criminal legal systems have become increasingly intertwined. Although there are many problems with biased policing against immigrants, ICE regularly operates out of county jails across the country, interrogating inmates in local custody, asking sheriffs to deliver information on immigrants, and requesting that jails hold people at ICE’s convenience.”

“Thus it is primarily the county’s policy regarding assistance with deportations that governs how immigrants may be profiled and funneled into the deportation pipeline.”
