Judicial Watch: Phoenix Ban on Police Asking About Immigration Status Ignores State Law, Supreme Court

JULY 11, 2017

A new policy implemented by the Phoenix Police Department bans its officers from asking an individual about his or her immigration status, and from contacting federal immigration officials, without meeting new guidelines.

According to Judicial Watch, this policy is in clear violation of Arizona state law upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2012.

A copy of the Phoenix Police Department’s policy obtained by Judicial Watch states that officers must first receive authorization before contacting Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and imposes new restrictions on asking individuals about their immigration status.
