ICE and Working with Local Law Enforcement

Feb 21, 2019

Barnstable County Sheriff Jim Cummings has become the third sheriff in the state to opt into Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s 287 (g) program, making the sheriff’s department a delegated authority for immigration enforcement. We sit in on a public information session with ICE and Sheriff Cummings, and discuss how the 287 (g) program in Bristol County under Sheriff Hodgson has impacted New Bedford immigrants. 

Guests joining Mindy Todd on the program are Dylan Fernandes, State Representative for Nantucket and Dukes Counties and portions of Barnstable County; and Helena DaSilva Hughes, Executive Director, Immigrants Assistance Center.
