DOES ICE HAVE A PRESENCE AT THE COUNTY JAIL?
The issue of ICE agents at the border is not one that is likely to go away any time soon. And while we are not THAT far from the border here in Oklahoma, we are far enough away to not witness events on a daily basis. That said, there are plenty of Oklahomans who deal with immigration issues in their everyday lives and for that reason it is good to have a bit of a background on what ICE does and where you might encounter an agent here at home. One place you may not have thought of bumping into an ICE agent is at the county jail. But the fact is there are agents present at the county jail who are tasked with checking citizenship status during an inmate’s intake. This may come into play for you if you are arrested for a crime, adding an additional layer to an already frightening ordeal.
