Following the lead of states like California and sanctuary cities like Denver or San Francisco, the Las Vegas police department has announced they will no longer detain people on federal immigration holds. The decision is based on California statutes.

In a statement that all but admits the move is probably a waste of time, LVMPD’s Sheriff Joseph Lombardo recognized that the decision would probably be appealed in the courts. He also indicated he was “optimistic that this change will not hinder LVMPD’s ability to fight violent crime”.

To recap, law enforcement has decided not to work with law enforcement. Isn’t this how we got 9/11?
