..... and actually expands upon it. I certainly feel there should be more done in the prevention of illegal immigrants coming into our country, but nevertheless, it's good to see something is to be done about the illegal immigrants who commit other crimes.

quote:
The Obama administration is expanding a program initiated by President George W. Bush aimed at checking the immigration status of virtually every person booked into local jails. In four years, the measure could result in a tenfold increase in illegal immigrants who have been convicted of crimes and identified for deportation, current and former U.S. officials said.

By matching inmates' fingerprints to federal immigration databases, authorities hope to pinpoint deportable illegal immigrants before they are released from custody. Inmates in federal and state prisons already are screened. But authorities generally lack the time and staff to do the same at local jails, which house up to twice as many illegal immigrants at any time and where inmates come and go more quickly.



Here's a link to the rest of the article.

No problem with that. Of all the things Pres Bush did, I thought his overall approach to the illegals issue was the most thoughtful. He actually tried to do something about it, proposed a policy and was shouted down by his own party, mostly. It seems they would rather pretend the problem will just go away (and build a giant, ineffective fence).
