"In 2016, there were over 52,000 illegal aliens in prison, and collectively they committed about 400,000 crimes, not all in 2016", Rosenberg said. During the booking process, people are fingerprinted, and those fingerprints go to the Federal Bureau of Investigation which sends them to ICE.
At least two fake signs welcoming "felons, illegals and MS13" to California's "sanctuary state" were removed from freeways near the border with Nevada and Arizona, according to news reports.
State and local police anywhere in the state are now forbidden from asking about someone's immigration status, working with federal law enforcement to enforce immigration laws, and making arrests based on outstanding warrants for immigration charges.
The answer is nearly certainly no. Homan's argument relies on a statute that is typically used to target human smugglers; according to Bill Hing, a law professor at the University of San Francisco who runs the school's Immigration and Deportation Defense Clinic, there's no precedent, or even a strong legal case, for using it against politicians.
"There's no sanctuary from federal law enforcement", he said.

ICE acting Director Thomas Homan says pols in sanctuary cities might be violating the law.
. "I think we charge some of these sanctuary cities with violating federal law". "They're about to see a lot more special agents, a lot more deportations in the state of California", Homan said.
"Well look, if he thinks he's protecting immigrant communities, he's doing quite the opposite".
"In Sonoma County a few weeks ago, an illegal alien was arrested, we put a detainer on him, he was arrested for domestic violence". Two weeks later, he killed that girl.
Here, what matters most is a person's criminal record. Senate Bill 223, which never advanced out of the Judiciary Committee, would have prevented state and local officers from participating in immigration enforcement. "More citizens are going to die because of these policies". Moreover, he argued Brown should be criminally charged over the law. Under Hernandez's old policy, the jail honored ICE requests only for inmates accused of murder, human trafficking and other violent crimes. The law, which went into effect on January 1, "bars law enforcement officers in the state from arresting individuals based on civil immigration warrants, asking about a person's immigration status or participating in any joint task force with federal officials for the objective of enforcing immigration laws", according to the San Francisco Chronicle. Appearing on Fox News on Tuesday, Homan attacked Jerry Brown, the governor of California, who recently signed legislation declaring his state a sanctuary for undocumented immigrants. "Is there a shred of civility, dignity or intelligence left in this president or in this administration?"
