WE NEED THEM MORE HERE IN THE NORTHEAST:

City Police No Longer Enforcing Immigration Laws (Andy Sheehan, 8/11/10, KDKA)

[P]ittsburgh police say a person's immigration status is no longer their business.

"We want to make sure that we're not terrifying that individual or stepping across that fine line of racial profiling," Pittsburgh Police Chief Nate Harper said.

Harper recently issued new guidelines to his officers to no longer check the immigration status of a person and to leave enforcement of immigration laws to federal officers. Harper says police need good relations with the immigrant community and should not be feared.

"It's very important that have communication – a very well-built bridge to all neighborhoods throughout the City of Pittsburgh, " he said. "We don't want to have to go into any neighborhood and not be able to communicate."
