As Federal Immigration Officials set up arrests and deportations at the request of President Donald Trump and Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, Chelan County Commissioners say they are still fighting a perception that the county is not cooperating with ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement).
Chelan County Commissioner, Doug England, says that couldn’t be further from the truth..

Last month, Chelan County Commissioners issued a statement reiterating their commitment to assisting Federal Immigration officials and upholding federal law.
