And so we ask . . .
WAS THIS ICE ARREST TOO MUCH OR AN ACCURATE GLIMPSE OF THE PROCESS???
Whatever the answer, the reality is that the crackdowns have been pretty much the same under the Administration of both Prez Obama & Prez Trump . . .
Also, just to get this out of the way . . .
Police don't have to show a warrant to arrest or detain a person. Authorities are allowed to hold a suspect for up to 48 hours and sometimes longer without any charge . . . Again, this kind of broad authority even scares most lawmakers but it's worth mentioning when activists & advocates keep asking for warrants like they're in the movies. Fact is, there are few checks and balances for either citizens or illegal aliens when it comes to the arrest process . . . Most of the discretion is up to law enforcement.
