Las Vegas police are changing their policies on turning over certain immigrants who are living in the country illegally to Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
The Las Vegas Sun reports police lobbyist Chuck Callaway says Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo (Republican) has directed the jail not to turn over those immigrants in the country illegally who are booked for minor traffic crimes and other low-level misdemeanors.
The change comes a day after activists held a protest and news conference outside the police department in opposition to the ICE agreement.
