I'll Be Damned! Enforcement Continues To Work It's Spooky Magic!
More Los Angeles Inmates Flagged for DeportationOf course, let's not celebrate prematurely.
LOS ANGELES, February 5, 2007 - The number of inmates in Los Angeles county jails flagged for deportation as suspected illegal immigrants this year has almost doubled since the jailhouse immigration checks started last year. Corrections officials say 5,829 inmates were flagged last year. In 2005, that number was just over 3,000. Authorities say the uptick comes due to increased screening, not an increase in illegal immigrants in the jails. "The benefit is these people who are committing crimes aren't being released onto our streets to commit more crimes. They are being removed from the United States," Jim Hayes, director of the Los Angeles field office for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said.
