ICE: Policy’s Effect on Immigration Would Be Minimal

From Brian Rogers’s and James Pinkerton’s article in tomorrow’s Chronicle about the DA’s new immigration plea policy:

“We think the impact would be minimal, and we should be able to handle that difference,” said Kenneth Landgrebe, who heads ICE detention and removal operations.

If the impact (!) on ICE detention and removal operations would be minimal, and if the effects on the criminal justice system (including less due process, more crowded jails, and the opportunity cost of trying undocumented immigrants with less-serious cases instead of documented immigrants with more-serious cases) are unforeseeable, far-reaching, and possibly severe, why do it?
