PLYMOUTH, MA — The Plymouth County Sheriff’s Office said Friday it will terminate the 287(g) agreement with Immigration and Customs Enforcement which allows law enforcement officers to act as immigration agents.

This dramatic decision to end the 287(g) program comes as Massachusetts residents had planned to protest the ICE facility Thursday, demanding the end of immigration detention at Plymouth County Jail.

Participants planned to call for the release of those in detention, and an end to Trump-era immigration enforcement practices in Plymouth county, but due to a rain delay, moved the protest to Sept. 23.

Bizar Male

In an attempt to contain the continuing COVID-19 pandemic, President Biden issued two Executive Orders on September 9, 2021 that mandate COVID-19 vaccines for federal government employees and employees of federal government contractors.

Bizar Male

In the past week, media outlets throughout the Bay Area and around the country reported that San Francisco plans to give people $300 per month not to shoot each other.

The click bait caught national attention and sparked wide debate following an article in the Examiner that was sub-headlined with the $300 amount. The problem is such headlining distorts what the program is about.
