"Basically, what happened, was they had the wrong person," said Jones, who broke the news on his Twitter page. "They thought I was somebody else. It all got situated but it took its time to get situated. It's frustrating for me. I shouldn't have put it out how I put it out. Now, we can all just get on with it. … Everything's taken care of on my end."

The decision means three of Maryland's four largest jurisdictions -- Montgomery and Prince George's counties along with Baltimore city -- have changed long-standing policies this year that treated the federal immigration detainers the same as criminal warrants.

Gov. Martin O'Malley announced Friday that the Baltimore City Detention Center will no longer automatically honor requests from the federal government to hold immigrants for deportation — making the state-run jail one of a relative handful in the country to take a more discerning approach on such requests. The move is intended to reduce deportations of immigrants who do not have criminal records under a federal program called Secure Communities. The program, run by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, is supposed to identify repeat and violent offenders for deportation.

Advocates and law enforcement officials called on state lawmakers Thursday to approve legislation that would limit the circumstances under which illegal immigrants could be held in jail - a proposal intended to curb a 5-year-old federal immigration program called Secure Communities. The proposal, similar to laws in California and Connecticut, would frequently require local jails to ignore requests by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to hold immigrants for 48 hours beyond when they would normally be released.

While the political winds seem to be propelling the first comprehensive immigration reform in more than a quarter-century, every day our broken immigration system takes a cruel and little-noticed toll on countless hardworking, law-abiding individuals and their families.
