Hundreds of people gathered outside a federal men’s prison in Sheridan on Monday night to protest the Trump administration’s immigration policies. 

Lane County

After a court decision earlier this month, Lane County has changed its policy on holding inmates at the request of federal immigration officials.
 

According to US Immigration and Customs Enforcement, requests to hold, or detainers, are used to “identify and ultimately remove criminal aliens” that were taken into local custody.  ICE asks for holds up to 48 hours. This policy has been widely criticized by immigrant rights groups.
