On January 26, 2021, the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors voted to adopt the Trust Policy which will prohibit the county’s law enforcement personnel from cooperating with federal immigration agents. All nine Democrat supervisors voted in favor of the new policy, while the lone Republican supervisor opposed it. The intended purpose of this policy is to reduce fears of being deported among individuals residing in Fairfax County illegally when they seek public assistance.
