Feds Reduce Size of Immigration Unit in Arizona
The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has withdrawn some agents from Phoenix just as local police prepare to enforce Arizona’s new immigration law, The Associated Press reports.
The federal agents were responsible for identifying and deporting illegal immigrants.
To round up immigrants in other states, ICE began reassigning members of the Phoenix unit, saying smuggling activity is down in the area, the AP reported.
Some local police worry ICE won’t be able to respond as quickly to immigration problems.
