    Dozens of police departments in the United States have been granted new powers, or are seeking them, to check the immigration status of people they arrest, aiding President Donald Trump's broad crackdown on people living in the country illegally. Since Trump took office in January, 29 departments have joined a special program under which they are deputized to perform some tasks of immigration agents, doubling its size in 10 months, according to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency.

When being pulled over for DUI and they take your blood to test, do they automatically test for other drugs?
I was pulled over for DUI, was given a sobriety field test and a breathalyzer. I wasn't over the limit (.14 I think), cuffed, and taken to a hospital to have blood drawn. I had some other drugs in my system (cocaine and marijuana). When testing my blood, will definitely find the other drugs in my system? And can they change the charges if they do?
The best answer I can give you is, it depends. If the police suspect that there are drugs in your system and they have...

Question regarding driving under a DUI Suspension in Pennsylvania.
I'm wondering if the judge has room for any leniency in the 60-90 day jail sentence. I am not familiar with mandatory. My boyfriend has a DUI suspension. One night I refused to drive home on a last leg of a long trip. I was sick and cranky and honestly, I was being an a**hole. . WE get pulled over. His court date is approaching and wondering if there is any way I can help him. I feel awful.
The judge has no discretion as to the penalty (jail time). The best way you can help him is to retain an experienced...
