Documents recently obtained by WBUR have raised questions about the role the Boston Police Department plays in federal immigration enforcement. Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, who in the past has said it is not the BPD's job to enforce federal immigration laws, says that his office is looking into the BPD's current relationship with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
