Vermont AG Donovan releases guidance for cities and towns on immigration enforcement

Mon, 03/06/2017 - 12:38pm -- tim

Vermont Business Magazine Attorney General Thomas J Donovan Jr, today provided municipalities with a guide should they consider a response to recent changes in federal immigration policy and enforcement. The guide, which is a pamphlet produced by the Immigration Task Force and the Attorney General’s Office, gives cities and towns an overview of current federal immigration policy and model policies for municipalities. The purpose of the document is to promote public safety and ensure local law enforcement can protect vulnerable communities and persons, while complying with federal law.

Attorney General Donovan said: “The relationship of trust between local law enforcement and the communities they serve is an essential part of safe cities and towns. This document is meant to protect that relationship and provide information to Vermont cities and towns as they review federal immigration policy.”

The document, “Guidance to Vermont Cities and Towns Regarding Immigration Enforcement,” can be found HERE.
