Despite President-Elect Trump's confirmed plan to toughen immigration laws and deport millions of illegal 'criminal' immigrants, LA Times reports that LAPD chief Charlie Beck said he has no plans to follow Trump's demands, "we are not going to engage in law enforcement activities solely based on somebody's immigration status. We are not going to work in conjunction with Homeland Security on deportation efforts."
"What we are going to do is get the people that are criminal
and have criminal records, gang members, drug dealers, where a lot of
these people, probably two million, it could be even three million, we
are getting them out of our country or we are going to incarcerate," the president-elect said in an interview with CBS' "60 Minutes" to air Sunday evening. "But we're getting them out of our country, they're here illegally."
LA Times' Kate Mather reports that Trump's immigration plan may be hitting a snag as LAPD CHief Beck said he planned to maintain the long-standing separation.
