David Harris on KDKA TV on new Pittsburgh Police policy on immigration

Professor David Harris spoke on KDKA TV about the new policy of the Pittsburgh Police Department that he helped draft.  The policy stipulates that officers may ask about immigration status only when it is relevant to a criminal investigation.  "What this does is it keeps Pittsburgh's police focused on fighting crime instead of checking immigration for which they're not really trained and which will alienate the very people they need as allies to fight crime," Harris said.
