Yes, there is a new sheriff in town

From the Milwaukee Neighborhood News Service:

(Milwaukee County Sheriff Earnell) Lucas said he will not enforce the federal 287(g) program, which grants local police the ability to act on immigration laws.

“I said over the course of my campaign that I was not supportive of cooperating with ICE because it divides a wedge in our community,” said Lucas. “I think that immigration enforcement and cooperation with ICE as it relates to a detainer … would be a violation of their constitutional rights.

A detainer is a letter or request that ICE makes to a local law enforcement agency to hold inmates beyond the time that is required based on the charges against them.

I’m reminded of this blog from 2007.
