Court Rules Indiana Law Requires Police Cooperation With Federal Immigration Authorities

May 11, 2019


INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A federal appeals court is tossing out an agreement under which the sheriff's department in Indianapolis stopped detaining people based solely on U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement requests.

The Indiana attorney general's office argued a federal judge improperly approved the 2017 deal settling a lawsuit against the Marion County Sheriff's Department.

Republican Attorney General Curtis Hill says the ruling upholds state law requiring police cooperation with federal immigration authorities.
