DOJ gives New Orleans "last chance" on NOPD immigration policy


The Department of Justice (DOJ) is not convinced the*New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) complies with federal immigration rules, despite Mayor Mitch Landrieu's repeated assurance that policies limiting officers' involvement in immigration issues are well within bounds.

In a letter to Landrieu,*Acting Assistant U.S. Attorney General*Alan Hanson said NOPD policies ? which include preventing officers from inquiring about immigration status ? "may violate" a section of federal law involving local authorities communicating with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).*unless it can prove that the policy does not "restrict New Orleans officers and employees from requesting information regarding immigration status from federal immigration officers."
