By UNION COUNTY OFFICE OF PUBLIC INFORMATION

August 22, 2014 at 6:17 AM

At a press conference yesterday, representatives from the interfaith organization Faith in New Jersey joined with other civil rights advocates to recognize the Freeholder Board for supporting a recent change to Union County Department of Corrections procedures relating to detainer requests from the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency.

The new procedures promote a more effective use of public safety resources while ensuring that constitutional protections are observed.
