Bill Summary

The bill prohibits county law enforcement agencies from detaining individuals for the federal immigration and customs enforcement agency (ICE) or providing notifications of an individual's release date and time to ICE unless ICE has a judicial warrant. The bill prohibits renewal of current intergovernmental service agreements with ICE and prohibits new agreements. The bill requires local law enforcement officers to administer an advisement of rights to an individual prior to an ICE interview, informing the individual that he or she has the right to deny an ICE interview request and that he or she can exercise his or her constitutional rights.

The bill requires the department of human services to develop and publish model policies to ensure that public schools, state-funded colleges and universities, public libraries, public health facilities, shelters, courthouses, probation offices, and entities providing criminal court-ordered classes, treatment, and appointments are places that are accessible to all residents regardless of immigration status. All public schools, state-funded colleges and universities, public libraries, public health facilities, shelters, and courthouses shall adopt the policies or equivalent policies. Probation offices and entities providing criminal court-ordered classes, treatment, and appointments may adopt the policies or equivalent policies.
