Below are some resources regarding research on trust between immigrants and police, particularly as it relates to collaboration between local law enforcement and ICE.

  • Crossing the Line of Legitimacy (Goff et al, attached): Cross deputizing law enforcement to cover immigration enforcement can essentially cut crime reporting in half among non-citizens, with effect on 1st and 2nd generation citizens too. The findings depicted in the bar graph included in this document are especially stark and may be worth highlighting.
  • Kirk et Al (attached): Immigrant communities are usually more likely to trust police and have lower crime, but immigration enforcement can undermine that.
  • Study from Costa Mesa, California: Shift to immigration enforcement reduced likelihood of crime reporting, worsened community perceptions of police.
