The President has provided foreign officers and international agencies exemptions from laws and regulations to which US cops must comply.
For example, foreign cops operating in the US will not be forced to comply with the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act.
"This Obama executive order is a slap in the face of US cops -- who must adhere to laws and regulations including FOIA -- but also a slap in the face of American citizens who may be abused by these non-citizen cops from countries that don't recognize our constitutional protections," warns former New York City detective and Marine intelligence officer Sidney Franes.
Time for a flash back:
This amendment deals with foreign police on US soil, and when you read the article some changes made with regards to INTERPOL are mentioned.
But recall this one? Going back almost two years
Canada and the U.S. have signed an agreement that paves the way for the militaries from either nation to send troops across each other's borders during an emergency, but some are questioning why the Harper government has kept silent on the deal.
So we already had troop agreements allowing foreign troops on US and Canadian soil.
Now there is a police agreement, signed by Obama Dec.16/09. Did Canada sign a similar agreement allowing foreign police on Canadian soil? I would think it quite likely given the Vancouver 2010 Olympics.
