Daines Demands Action, Change in Policies Following the Release of a Criminal Alien in Whitefish
U.S. SENATE—U.S. Senator Steve Daines today sent a letter to the Department of State and the Department of Homeland Security urging them to work with Canadian law enforcement to enhance systems that allow expedited access to criminal records. “While it is clear there has been significant collaboration with the Canadian government, as the incident from January 23 shows, there still appear to be significant flaws either in the agreement itself, or in the implementation of the agreement. That a fugitive wanted for such egregious crimes was in custody and released without his identity being verified is both inconceivable and unacceptable.
