Abstract

Amicus brief arguing that local authorities requested by means of federal immigration detainers to prolong the detention of prisoners who would otherwise be entitled to release may comply only if such detentions are authorized by both the Immigration and Nationality Act and by local law, that federal authorities cannot bypass local law restrictions on arrest authority as a matter of Tenth Amendment law, and that the word “detainer” as used in Section 287(d) of the Immigration and Nationality Act does not envision such prolonged detention, but instead only addresses whether federal immigration officials would receive notice of the impending release of such prisoners.

Keywords: Immigration, Crimmigration, Detainers, Tenth Amendment, Federalism
