ew York City police denied all
1,526 requests from Immigra-
tion and Customs Enforce-
ment during the Trump
administration’s first year to
detain and turn over undocu-
mented immigrants for deportation, ac-
cording to the department’s legislative
According to a report in the New York
Daily News, the legislative affairs director,
Oleg Chernyavsky told City Council members at a Feb. 7 hearing that the number of
ICE requests in 2017 far exceeded the 80
received in 2016 — but police complied
with none of them. The law prohibits city
authorities from surrendering prisoners to
ICE unless there is a federal warrant and
the individuals have been convicted of
one of 170 serious crimes.
“That speaks volumes to our intent as a
city,” Chernyavsky told Council members,
according to various news reports. “It’s
important for victims of crimes, irrespec-
tive of their immigration status, to trust
their police and to come forward and in-
form their police.”
Immigration officials have been openly
critical of the NYPD for releasing individu-
als arrested in the city by
ICE. According to the Daily
News report, ICE field office
director Thomas Decker re-
cently took to Twitter to
condemn the city’s actions.
“The release of criminal
aliens back on New York
City streets continues to
pose a dangerous risk to our
communities,” said a tweet
by Decker, quoted by the
newspaper. “ICE will con-
tinue to dedicate more re-
sources to conduct at-large
arrests to ensure the safety
of the law-abiding citizens
of these communities.”
The NYPD recently released nine peo-
ple arrested by ICE for being in the country
illegally, according to the federal agency.
The agency said the nine had active detainers and pending criminal charges – but
did not identify the alleged crimes.
UC Berkeley commits funds to
aid undocumented students
The chancellor of the University of California at Berkeley has announced a total of
$800,000 in grants to assist undocumented immigrants enrolled at the school.
Chancellor Carol Christ said the campus is
also planning to establish a student re-
source center on campus by March.
The Feb. 6 announcement was reported
in the campus newspaper, the Daily Californian.
The proposed plan of action is known
as the “Undocuaction Plan” and its focus
will be students who have lost their status
in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
NYC’s International student
International student enrollment grew
by at least 2. 6 percent at a number of New
York City major colleges and universities
between the 2016 and 2017 fall semesters,
according to a recent report in am-NewYork.
The newspaper also cited separate findings released in the fall by the nonprofit
Institute of International Education,
which tracks international students in the
U.S. The report noted that New York
State’s international collegiate student
body was second only to that of California.
The newspaper based its own conclu-
sions on data received from St. John’s Uni-
versity, NYU and Fordham University
about their foreign-born
students. The figures in-
cluded community college
and ESL members, for the
2016 and 2017 academic
years. Columbia University
provided data only for the
2014-2015 academic school
year, noting an enrollment
of 9,675 foreign undergraduates and students.
Among the four, St.
John’s reported a decrease
in international enrollment
— from 1,249 in the fall 2016
semester to 1,177 in the fall
of 2017. According to a uni-
versity spokeswoman, the
school has been able to add more interna-
tional recruiters to its staff and has been
finding other ways to make the campus
more attractive to prospective students
Jonathan Bowles, the executive director of the Center for an Urban Future,
a Manhattan think tank, told the newspaper he was surprised that the number of
international students didn’t drop after
the election of President Donald Trump,
especially after a dropoff in international
tourism during that period.
