Sheriff's Office to Hold Community Info Session on Partnership with ICE

There is still opposition in Massachusetts to the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement 287(g) program. The Barnstable County Sheriff’s Office has partnered with ICE to use the program that allows officers to be deputized and have access to ICE databases to see if convicted felons in custody are in the country illegally and should be detained.According to statistics released by the Sheriff’s Office, 79 such inmates in 2018 were referred to ICE.

The Sheriff’s Office will hold a community informational meeting to go over its partnership with ICE on February 13th at 3 p.m. at the Bourne Veterans Memorial Community Center, 239 Main Street, Buzzards Bay.
