House Bill 5545 would undermine justice, equality, safety, and community by requiring the state's unnecessary participation in the federal government's deportation program. By weakening Connecticut's TRUST Act to require state and local law enforcement to serve federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainers without a valid federal judicial warrant, this bill focuses local law enforcement on the federal government's deportation agenda, not on local priorities. The ACLU of Connecticut strongly opposes this bill.
