Mayor, including newly appointed ( not voted
in by the voters) Matthew Harper to enforce

This allows mayors and city councils of every
city to take a council vote to implement

Section 287 allows
INS presence in jails for the deportation
from city jails of arrested illegal aliens

section 287 ?
Let's see if Matthew Harper is really :

2) A real Republican
3) An upholder of justice AND
NOT a :

States ( and cities ) Can and Must Help Enforce Federal Immigration Law
Promises Made, Action Delayed ,
Prepared by the Federation for American Immigration Reform -
Recently, Congress has enacted laws designed to re-enlist the states in the battle against illegal immigration. The solution to illegal immigration reform requires the cooperation of all levels of government. Unfortunately, some existing provisions have not been implemented to facilitate a cooperative web of local, state, and federal enforcement vital to regaining control of our nation's borders.
Local Law Enforcement Cooperation State and local law enforcement agencies can work with the Immigration and Naturalization Service to enforce immigration law. Section 133 of the 1996 immigration reform bill passed into law (Pub.L. No. 104-208) created a unique network of cooperation in the enforcement of immigration law. For the first time, state and local law enforcement agencies had the ability to work in partnership with the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) to enforce immigration law. Section 133 provides a legal mechanism to implement the necessary cooperation between all levels of government to stop illegal immigration.
Specifically, Section 133 authorizes the U.S. Attorney General to train local police departments to identify and detain suspected illegal aliens. Although the Department of Justice has thus far taken little action in implementing even a pilot project under this authority, there is great potential for this project. City Councils should request to be a part of the program and have their law enforcement personnel trained so that they can arrest illegal aliens.
Government Employees Share Information with the INS
No longer can a state or local government prohibit its employees from sharing important information about illegal aliens with the INS. Section 642 of the 1996 immigration reform bill and Section 424 of the 1996 welfare reform bill (Pub. L. No. 104-193) protect the ability of employees of state and local governments to share information with the INS "regarding the citizenship or immigration status, lawful or unlawful, of any individual." This would in effect eliminate sanctuary cities and in theory should strike down any orders or local laws that prohibit local government officials from sharing information with the INS. Instead of welcoming the opportunity to help enforce our nation's immigration laws, some elected officials have fought them.
For example, New York City Mayor Rudy Guiliani sued the federal government, claiming that these provisions were unconstitutional. The Supreme Court rejected his claim and stated that these provisions "direct only that City officials and agencies be allowed, if they so choose, to share information with federal authorities . . . They only prevent the City from interfering with a voluntary exchange of information."
For the first time, welfare benefit providers, people tracking down "deadbeat dads," motor vehicle personnel, and countless other government officials can turn in illegal immigrants to the INS. This could be a valuable asset for the INS, but only if public employees are aware of their ability to do so. If state governments or agencies fail to notify their employees of this change, there is little probability that the employees will be aware of their new ability to help end illegal immigration.
States Can Require Proof of Identity
The 1996 immigration reform bill also authorized states to require that an applicant for state or government benefits show proof of eligibility, such as a U.S. passport, drivers' license, or resident alien card. Sheltering Illegal Aliens is a Felony Current law makes it a felony to aid, abet, conceal, or induce an alien to enter and/or reside in the United States illegally. And yet some actions by state government officials flirt with undermining existing federal immigration law.

Section 287(g) is a program of the act that permits the U.S. Attorney General to enter into agreements with state and local law enforcement agencies, permitting designated officers to perform immigration law enforcement functions, pursuant to a Memorandum of Agreement. This section does not simply deputize state and local law enforcement personnel to enforce immigration matters.This provision was implemented by local and state authorities in five states: California, Arizona, Alabama, Florida and North Carolina by the end of 2006.
