Judicial Watch v. Pasadena Police Department (No. GC-045609) – documents regarding PPD’s illegal alien policies

NOVEMBER 02, 2011

Judicial Watch filed a lawsuit against the Pasadena Police Department (PPD) and PPD Police Chief Christopher Vicino, to obtain documents related to the department’s alleged illegal alien sanctuary policy. Chief Vicino reportedly indicated that the department prevents his officers from “asking about anybody’s legal status unless it is a matter of national security,” which may be a violation of federal immigration law.On June 4, Judicial Watch sent the PPD a request under the California Public Records Act seeking access to the following:

  • Any and all records of PPD’s policies, procedures, or directives concerning, regarding, or relating to undocumented (illegal) aliens.
  • Any and all records of PPD’s policies, procedures, or directives concerning, regarding or relating to contacts or communications between PPD officers or employees and federal immigration officials regarding a person’s immigration status.
