On Monday, March 20, 2017 DHS released their weekly declined detainer outcome report. This report is misleading and lists Williamson County Jail as an agency that refuses to cooperate with federal requests to detain undocumented immigrants. Williamson County Sheriff’s Office honors all ICE detainers placed on individuals and will continue to do so. The report stated that Williamson County refused four detention requests from January 28 to February 3. The individuals listed on the report were arrested in Williamson County and a detainer was placed on all four individuals. They were later transferred to different jurisdictions where we believe ICE detainers are not honored. At this moment we cannot confirm the jurisdictions to which they were transferred. We will continue to look into it and will keep you informed.
