Houston police "do enough" on illegal immigration

Mayor: City cops do enough on illegal immigration
— Houston Chronicle2

Mayor Bill White defended the city’s policy on police screening of arrestees for illegal immigrants.

At the weekly press conference, I asked him if he thought Sheriff Tommy Thomas’ recent request for federal training for his jailers (story) would lead the city to reconsider its own policy.

White said, in essence, no.

“I think it will erode the capacity of local law enforcement if local law enforcement starts assuming more and more federal functions.”
