Federal Immigration Law Campus Compliance Act of 2017 or the FILCCA of 2017
This bill withholds reimbursement for indirect costs associated with federal research and development grants from an institution of higher learning that does not comply with a lawful request for information about, or a detainer pertaining to, an alien made by a federal immigration officer or employee.
A state or political subdivision that complies with a detainer is deemed to be an agent of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), has authority available to DHS to take actions to comply with the detainer, and shall not be liable for such actions.
DHS may issue a detainer for an alien who is in federal, state, or local custody requesting: (1) all relevant information collected pertaining to such alien and notification of his or her future release, or (2) continued detention until DHS assumes custody.
DHS may request from any entity that receives federal funds other immigration-related information pertaining to an alien that is not otherwise precluded from disclosure.
