Council approves Immigration and Customs Enforcement information request

“We’re not going to have officers of the Boston Police Department working with ICE to pick someone up for a civil immigration violation when there’s no other crime involved,” said Councilor Zakim in regards to the 17F Information Request he filed to the Administration, requesting information regarding communications between the Boston Police Department (BPD) and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

The information request allows Councilors to request written responses from the Mayor, and asks for:

  1. Any and all communications between the BPD and ICE for the calendar years 2017, 2018, and 2019.
  2. Any and all BPD records or communications mentioning Jose Martin Paz Flores, originally an undocumented immigrant resident that now has legal status, who was arrested by ICE agents after they worked with BPD officers.
  3. The name and stated mission of any joint law enforcement task force that BPD participates in and which also includes ICE as a member.
  4. Any document describing the BPD’s cooperation and/or communication with ICE.

The Council voted to approve this request.
