Judge Hirsch found it unconstitutional, and calls the U.S. “a sanctuary coountry.”
The judge’s ruling was a rebuke of Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez’s much criticized decision to allow county jails to hold immigrants awaiting deportation by federal agents, a measure that has sparked protests and anger by many immigration advocates in South Florida
“Miami is not, and has never been, a sanctuary city,” Hirsch wrote. “But America is, and has always been, a sanctuary country.”
The Feds have 48 hours to pick up inmates held in the Miami-County jail.
