Enforcement of Federal Immigration Law

Concerning reversing certain actions by the general assembly related to measures intended to limit enforcement of federal immigration law.
2024 Regular Session
Bill Summary

In 2006, the general assembly passed Senate Bill 06-090 that:

  • Prohibited a local government from passing any ordinance or policy that would prohibit a police officer, local official, or local government employee from cooperating with federal officials with regard to the immigration status of a person within the state;
  • Required a peace officer who has probable cause to believe that a person is not legally present in the United States to report the person to the federal immigration and customs enforcement office;
  • Required each local government to provide notice to peace officers of the duty to report and to provide written confirmation of the notice and reporting statistics to the general assembly; and
  • Prohibited a local government that violates this provision from receiving any grants administered by the department of local affairs.

Senate Bill 06-090 was repealed in 2013. This bill recreates and reenacts the 2006 bill.

Current law prohibits:

  • A person from being arrested while the person is present at a courthouse, or while going to, attending, or coming from a court proceeding, and provides remedies for a violation;
  • A probation officer or probation department employee from providing personal information about an individual to federal immigration authorities; and
  • State and local governmental entities from contracting with a private entity for immigration detention services or entering into agreements for immigration detention services.

The bill repeals each of these laws.

(Note: This summary applies to this bill as introduced.)
