A Wall Street Journal article reports that federal immigration laws are increasingly becoming enforced at the state and local level as many counties and states are taking on the duty of verifying individuals' immigration status when they are stopped for traffic infractions and other violations. Requests to Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE) for training on immigration law enforcement are coming from border states such as Texas and California as well as areas in New England and the Midwest.
