Other local law enforcement agencies in California also told the Express that the ICE report appears to contain inaccuracies, and that they haven't been able to get more information from the feds.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has blocked $1.5 million to Travis County after the newly elected Democratic sheriff announced after Trump's inauguration that her jails would no longer honor all detainer requests.
Its first edition, released Monday, lists approximately 100 cities, towns, counties, and agencies across the nation that choose to be "non-cooperative" with agents from the Department of HomelandSecurity as they seek to identify and deport undocumented immigrants with criminal records.
It looks at: the highest volume of detainers issued to non-cooperative jurisdictions from January 28 to February 3; jurisdictions with recorded declined detainers broken down by individuals released during that time; and jurisdictions that have enacted policies which limit cooperation with ICE - the section in which all five MA municipalities are listed.
The Department of HomelandSecurity published a "detainer report" showing which local law enforcement agencies failed to comply with orders from ICE.
It included no information about what might happen to the 118 listed localities - including Boston and four other MA cities - where law enforcement limits their cooperation with ICE efforts to deport undocumented immigrants.
Northampton and Boston followed suit with August 2014 actions to limit local cooperation with ICE. One of its provisions was the publication of a registry of crimes committed by immigrants and the jurisdictions that did not help ICE detain those people so they could be deported.

Shurtleff pointed out that King County was among the largest counties on the list, and he said Metropolitan King County Council members are working to strengthen its ability to reach out to immigrant communities.
Among the jurisdictions that knowingly declined detainers, King County released three inmates that week. The jail does not hold inmates for ICE beyond their release dates. One is still in jail; the other two are in ICE custody. Teachers in the Austin area say parents who once drove their children to school are now sending them on the bus instead, to avoid running into immigration authorities.
Franklin County made the top in ICE's list of most uncooperative jurisdictions in the U.S.
"I felt, on behalf of [the county], that it was a mischaracterization and it created a headline that would confuse [our] citizens", Shank said of the county's inclusion in the report.
Migrant Justice organizer Abel Luna reacted to the arrests of Rodriguez and Sanchez, saying in a press release that it represents: "a clear demonstration that the Trump administration wants to break organized communities, bring us back to the shadows, bring us back to fear where we once were".
"There's not a sheriff's office in Colorado that doesn't cooperate with ICE", he said.
