COOS COUNTY, Ore. - President Donald Trump signed an executive order on Wednesday, reversing the administration's zero-tolerance immigration policy, which happened to create an issue on the coast as well.

Coos County Sheriff, Craig Zanni, says while they have no current detainees, they do have a regular policy that he says has been in effect for years.

"Not a sanctuary county," said Sheriff Zanni. "We do not honor ICE detainees that are not legitimate orders or probably cause statements."

ICE can still use their resources, but Zanni says that if a child is with an immigrant who is arrested, the child is transferred to child protective services.
