As a general matter, immigration officers should not issue detainers against an alien charged only with a traffic-related misdemeanori have a wild idea... how 'bout you keep them in custody for some other law they broke... like the Immigration laws?... just me thinkin' again.
if i don't have my driver's license, i'll get detained... heck, i didn't show up to traffic court once, and they issued a warrant for my arrest!... these guys enter our country illegally, and they get released?... if i didn't know better, i'd say there's racial profiling going on, and they singled out ME!
