Hawaii pushes back against Trump, adopts resolution declaring itself a 'welcoming' state to..



KAILUA-KONA — A resolution pushing back against harsher illegal immigration enforcement measures by the federal government was adopted by the state House of Representatives on Wednesday.

Introduced by Rep. Joy San Buenaventura, D-Puna, House Resolution 76 declares Hawaii as a ho‘okipa, or welcoming, state.

The resolution requests the state and all its counties refrain from honoring immigration detainers issued by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement as well as from participating in a program allowing for the enlistment of local law enforcement as immigration agents.

An immigration detainer is a request by a federal agency to detain an individual for up to 48 hours after he or she would normally be released on bond or because a criminal charge could not be established. It allows time for ICE to initiate a transfer of custody and opens the door for potential deportation proceedings.

Nowhere in the language of the resolution is the term “sanctuary” used. But it implores political leadership to avoid agreements under the Immigration and Nationality Act that would allow for the deputization of local police as immigration agents as well as “any other law enforcement activities that collaborate with ICE or any other federal law enforcement agency in connection with the deportation of undocumented immigrants who have not been convicted of committing a violent crime.”
