The U.S. Marshals Service is drafting a new sanctuary policy that would limit the agency’s ability to hold illegal immigrants for pickup by ICE, The Washington Times has learned.

Under the policy, marshals would not be able to hold illegal immigrants for pickup by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement on the say-so of an immigration warrant, or “detainer” request. Once the Marshals Service is done processing someone for its own custody purposes, the migrant is to be released even if ICE had asked for a hold.

Officials described the policy as still in draft form, though The Times knows of one jurisdiction in Florida where it has already been implemented, according to a memo sent to employees earlier this summer.

“Per our management staff, effective immediately, we will NOT house a prisoner based solely on an administrative immigration detainer,” a deputy wrote to fellow deputies in the Fort Lauderdale office.

“We will relay the reason that the inmate is being released from USMS custody and that the USMS cannot hold the subject beyond the standard out-processing time, nor may we transport the subject for DHS,” the deputy added.
