I am the sponsor of HB 817, Keep Our Communities Safe Act of 2019. This bill will require law enforcement to turn over illegal immigrants who have been convicted of a crime to ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) IF ASKED. Common sense dictates that illegal immigrants who have both entered our country illegally then proceeded to commit crimes should be detained until federal authorities can come pick them up.
Maryland should not protect criminal illegal immigrants nor should local law enforcement release them back into our communities. The bill hearing for HB 817 is on March 12th in the House Judiciary Committee.
Sign the petition and tell the lawmakers in Annapolis you support HB 817.
