Police Department Stands Up To Donald Trump, Makes A Huge Announcement

President Elect Donald Trump made a lot of campaign promises in the last year and a half, and probably none so often as to crack down on illegal immigration. Trump has vowed to make it a priority to deport illegal immigrants when he takes office. The Los Angeles Police Department have put out a statement that they have no intention of helping him.

Police Chief Charlie Beck of the LAPD says it is not the police departments job to enforce federal immigration policies. He wants to make it clear that the department has no plans to take on these job duties.

“I don’t intend on doing anything different,” said Beck in plain language on Monday. “We are not going to engage in law enforcement activities solely based on somebody’s immigration status. We are not going to work in conjunction with Homeland Security on deportation efforts."

With a high population of undocumented residents, the LAPD has been distancing themselves from immigration laws for years. Officers are prohibited from initiating contact with people based on their immigration status. Former Chief Daryl Gates signed that special order into policy back in 1979, and Beck intends to stick to it.

Residents of LA have been plagued by fears since Trump's election last week due to his promise to take a tough stance on immigration. A week after the election and protests are continuing, with no signs of slowing down.
