According to a new report from WGCL, Cobb County police say they won’t participate in federal efforts to deport illegal immigrants.
Cobb law enforcement held a community safety meeting on Wednesday night. At the event, they were asked to address a series of recent ICE raids that led to the arrest of nearly 200 in Georgia and the Carolinas.
“The Cobb County Police Department doesn’t participate in 287(g), that’s a program where ICE will partner with a local agency to help them enforce immigration laws,” one officer said.
The report notes that the Cobb County Sheriff’s office has long worked with immigration enforcement to detain illegal immigrants. Gwinnett County’s Sheriff department also participates in the 287(g) program.
