U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) reported on Wednesday that hundreds of Orange County Jail inmates on whom the agency had active detainers were re-arrested over the past two years on charges including rape, assault with a deadly weapon and child sex offenses — after local authorities released them without notifying ICE. According to county data, officials at the Southern California jail didn’t notify ICE when it released 2,121 inmates with detainers on them over 2018 and 2019. Over that same period, another 1,315 were released “to ICE upon completion of their local sentences in accordance with” California’s sanctuary regulations laid out in Senate Bill 54, an ICE press release said.
