The administration changed a policy such that undocumented immigrants arrested for minor traffic offenses (not DUI) will not be slotted for deportation. This change seems to be in response to Arizona’s policy in Arizona v. United States–I suppose now a suspect will be detained much less if pulled over for a minor traffic offense. Rule 28(j) letter (or whatever the equivalent is for SCOTUS) perhaps?
