When a person is in the custody for a minor offense to the city or county jail, those who are immigrants can be detained and sent to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). This creates a community that does not feel safe to report crimes to the police. Assembly Bill 376 provides more transparency that when a person is in custody in a city or county jail. The officer must provide the person in custody the purpose of the questions related to immigration and the implications of those questions. Local law enforcement must provide reports to the Nevada Legislature relating to those transported to a federal agency. This will allow the state to review non-violent misdemeanors of those who have been detained by ICE from county to county.
