ICE reminder to local jail re 48-hr detainer rule

Craig R. Shagin writes: "I am attaching an interesting letter [dated Aug. 10, 2011] that was produced following a state habeas action I filed. It is from Director Decker reminding by Fax the Warden of Adams County Prison in Pennsylvania that he is only to hold detainees for 48 hours past the state authorized detention.  I thought this might be an important piece of evidence in any case in which it was important to demonstrate the awareness by ICE of the repeated violations of this requirement by state agencies."
