Provision 287(g)

Apparently Judge (I use the term lightly) Bolton was not aware of 287(g).  A lot of people aren't.

Want to know more?  Read this:
Provision 287(g)

The 287(g) program, one of ICE’s top partnership initiatives, allows a state and local law enforcement entity to enter into a partnership with ICE, under a joint Memorandum of Agreement (MOA), in order to receive delegated authority for immigration enforcement within their jurisdictions.

287(g) Results and Participating Entities

Currently ICE has 287(g) agreements with 71 law enforcement agencies in 26 states. Since January 2006, the 287(g) program is credited with identifying more than 160,000 potentially removable aliens – mostly at local jails. ICE has trained and certified more than 1,130 state and local officers to enforce immigration law.

Here is the information specifically for Arizona:

ARIZONA Arizona Department of Corrections JAIL ENFORCEMENT 09/16/2005 

ARIZONA Arizona Department of Public Safety JAIL & TASK FORCE 04/15/2007

ARIZONA City of Mesa Police Department JAIL & TASK FORCE 11/19/2009 

ARIZONA City of Phoenix Police Department JAIL & TASK FORCE 03/10/2008 

ARIZONA Florence Police Department TASK FORCE 10/21/2009

ARIZONA Maricopa County Sheriff's Office JAIL ENFORCEMENT 02/07/2007

ARIZONA Pima County Sheriff's Office JAIL & TASK FORCE 03/10/2008

ARIZONA Pinal County Sheriff's Office JAIL & TASK FORCE 03/10/2008

ARIZONA Yavapai County Sheriff's Office JAIL & TASK FORCE 03/10/2008 

Here is a link to the specific page that shows every state and what they have with regard to 287(g)
Chart of MOA's by State
Scroll down towards the bottom of the page to see the chart.

This is interesting information.  I'm guessing that yesterday's ruling by Bolton null and voids this authority for Arizona agencies granted to them by ICE! 
Here is the actual MOA for the Maricopa Sheriff Department.  The gives them specific rights with regard to enforcing immigration laws.
