Maryland's House of Delegates has passed a bill that would bar police from checking on the immigration status of individuals.

The legislation would also prohibit individuals from being held in custody any longer than allowed, ostensibly meant to curb any cooperation between Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and local law enforcement for detainer requests. 

The Maryland Senate has yet to consider the bill; however, Maryland Governor Larry Hogan has indicated that he will veto the bill should it come to his desk.
