Topeka Police Chief Ron Miller was among local law enforcement executives to release a report this week saying civil immigration enforcement by local police undermines their core public safety mission, diverts scarce resources, increases their exposure to liability and litigation, and exacerbates fear in our communities, according to a statement issued by the Police Foundation.
Miller called on the federal government “to take back the reins of leadership on immigration issues and enact comprehensive border security and immigration reforms.

Why would cops support such an approach?

The tax payers are the ones that need to decide this as the Police work for them. As in Escondido, the Police want more support and cut and dried policy for their part in immigration enforcement.

It is now part of policy to check immigration status in all jails so that would involve the Sheriffs department too.

Checking immigration status in jails is great, but why on Earth would you want your police focused on immigrants?
It comes down to what your more concerned with: criminals who can be either citizen or alien, or just aliens.

Not focused but this policy where we have 2 sets of laws for people taking up space in this Country is absurd. If you are breaking a law, any law, you should suffer the consequences for breaking that law.
You aren't supporting the Police look the other way for any crime are you?

i would say they focus the attention on the violent offenders, drug dealers, DUI folk, etc, regardless of citizenship.

makes sense.
