The Kent County Sheriff’s Department is changing its policy on cooperation with Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
That’s after ICE detained a Kent County resident and Marine combat veteran for possible deportation last month. The man, Jilmar Ramos-Gomez, is a U.S. citizen. He was handed over to ICE by the Kent County jail, after ICE sent a request to the jail to hold him.
Kent County Sheriff Michelle LaJoye-Young says she’s outraged by the incident.
