Don't use local police to do federal, immigration, work

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!

It's racial profiling, at minimum, so, stop using local police for immigration hunts!  As I'm sure you're aware of, the Bush administration's policy of getting local police to do immigration searches is opposed by most local sheriffs and police departments. This practice strains budgets and undermines community relations, but the Department of Homeland Security has decided to continue it anyway.  This decision is unfair to local communities. Either the DHS should use its own Immigration and Customs Enforcement police to do this job, or local departments should be compensated for the additional work.
