DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND

Government Code 7283.1(d) in full:

Beginning January 1, 2018, the local governing body of any county, city, or city and county in which a local law enforcement agency has provided federal Immigration and Custom Enforcement (ICE) access to an individual during the last year shall hold at least one community forum during the following year, that is open to the public, in an accessible location, and with at least 30 days' notice to provide information to the public about ICE's access to individuals and to receive and consider public comment.  As part of this forum, the local law enforcement agency may provide the governing body with data it maintains regarding the number and demographic characteristics of individuals to whom the agency has provided ICE access, the date ICE access was provided, and whether the ICE access was provided through a hold, transfer, or notification request or through other means.  Data may be provided in the form of statistics or, if statistics are not maintained, individual records, provided that personally identifiable information shall be redacted.

 

As required by the statute, the County provided notice of the community forum on Tuesday, November 17, 2020 by posting the notice of the time and date of the community forum in the Mountain Democrat and on the bulletin board outside the Board of Supervisors meeting room and on the podium in the breezeway between Buildings A and B of the Government Center in Placerville which is accessible by the public at all times.   

 

In 2019 the Sheriff’s Office accepted 5,668 individuals for booking which generated 26 ICE Detainer requests. ICE was allowed access inside the jails for a lawful interview two times during 2019. The ICE interviews met the requirements of Government Code 7283.1 (a).  None of the individuals were detained past their scheduled release date.
