Immigrants Beware in Harford County— Immigration Status of Everyone in Custody Will be Checked

Harford County has partnered with ICE for their controversial program that allows local law enforcement to check the immigration status of everyone it takes into custody.  This program is already in place in about 15 other local jurisdictions nationwide. If you are here illegally and are arrested for a crime or serious traffic offense in Harford County, police officers will run your name through the ICE system. Previously, only immigrants who are convicted of a crime or serious traffic offense risked having their name sent to ICE. Now, there is a much greater risk of being deported in Harford County if you are arrested for a criminal or traffic offense. If you’ve been charged with a crime or traffic offense in Harford County, call Portner & Shure today for a free consultation.
