Danbury Lawmakers Oppose Restrictions on Law Enforcement Civil Detainer Capabilities

Posted on June 3, 2019 by admin


HARTFORD – A bill protecting the due-process rights of undocumented immigrants in Connecticut passed narrowly in Senate 20 to 15 and in House 79 to 61 last week. State Representatives Richard A. Smith (R-108) and Stephen Harding (R-107) were among the 61 lawmakers that voted against this bill.

Connecticut’s Trust Act was passed in 2013 and prohibits local law enforcement agencies from cooperating with federal immigration officials. It was established to create trust between local law enforcement officials and undocumented immigrants so residents of that community would be more willing to come forward, without fear of deportation, to report crimes or cooperate with police.

Senate Bill 992 revises the 2013 policy by including the following individuals under its protection:

  • Individuals with C and/or D felony convictions or charges
  • Those with pending criminal charges in the state where bond has not been posted
  • Persons with outstanding arrest warrants in the state
  • Federally identified gang members
  • Persons subject to a final deportation order
  • Someone who local police view as an unacceptable risk to public safety.
