Practice Advisory: NYC Detainer Policy Effective July 2013

IDP has issued a practice advisory for criminal defense attorneys regarding New York City’s 2013 detainer laws (Local Laws 2013/021 and 2013/022). This advisory provides guidance as to which immigration detainers the New York Police Department and the NYC Department of Corrections will not honor, thereby preventing certain non-citizens from being transferred to immigration detention. IDP also includes bail payment and plea decision tips for criminal defense attorneys within this advisory.

Following a year marred by hateful violence and the escalation of a racist anti-immigrant agenda, we are re-energizing to expand the fight for a world defined by diversity, human rights, and justice for all.

Your ongoing partnership and support play a critical role in escalating this fight -- join us and take a stand against misogyny, racism, xenophobia, and all other poisons.
