I’m pleased to announce I signed ACLU People Power Fairfax’s Candidate Commitment to Reform Fairfax Policies on Immigration. This commitment says I will support the enactment of a binding County-wide policy to achieve three key objectives:
(1) Require a judicial warrant to detain an immigrant based on ICE’s claim that the person has violated federal immigration law.
(2) Limit information sharing with ICE to the maximum extent possible consistent with state and federal law.
(3) Reduce arrests for minor offenses that are prompted by a lack of “proper” identification by expanding the types of documents that will be accepted.
I believe these measures will benefit the immigrant community and Fairfax at large and enhance public safety by restoring the trust that is essential to effective community policing.
