State Police Outline New Policy For Dealing With Foreign Nationals

Pennsylvania State Police have developed a new policy for dealing with someone who may be in this country illegally. The policy, known as AR7-14, does not allow state troopers to arrest someone solely on the basis of immigration status. Troopers are directed to contact Immigration and Customs Enforcement if a foreign national is suspected to being in the country illegally. State Police developed the policy with the help of federal officials, county district attorneys, the ACLU and other interested organizations.
