Those stopped by New Castle County law enforcement will not be asked about whether they are a citizen or not.
In addition, police will be barred from making an arrest on the basis of citizenship status.
County Executive Matt Meyer unveiled what is called the “Safe and Inclusive Communities” executive order yesterday.
The Wilmington News Journal reports that Meyer said it was not the job of local police to enforce immigration laws.
Nor, he added, was it the job of librarians or county employees.
