All major media outlets but Fox News ignored news that the city of New York ignored all 1,526 of its Immigration, Customs and Enforcement agency’s retainer requests. Only Fox News and other conservative outlets such as Townhall covered the decision.
A retainer is when the federal authorities place an official request to city and state officials to transfer arrested suspects to their custody. Local authorities are not obligated to honor the retainer request.
New York City decided to ignore the retainer requests, many of which involve illegal immigrant suspects who have been arrested by local authorities.
