    Deportation program to get more oversight

    Deportation program to get more oversight

    Cobb certified: The feds plan to tighten up a program that lets local law enforcement work with them on illegal immigration.
    By Rhonda Cook

    The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

    Monday, March 16, 2009

    For more than a decade, Cobb County has quietly been part of a program that adds another category to the job description of law enforcement officers —- that of immigration agent.

    The program is called 287(g), named for a section of the federal immigration law. It provides authority for state and local enforcement to investigate, detain and arrest illegal immigrants on civil and criminal grounds.

    Cobb was the first county in Georgia to be certified for 287(g). Here authorities say the program works. But this month the nationwide program, also operating in Hall and Whitfield counties, and soon Gwinnett County, has come under scrutiny and will soon face more supervision at the local level.

    A recent Government Accountability Office report questioned its effectiveness. GAO, the investigative arm of Congress, reported that authorities failed to determine how many of the thousands of people deported under the program were the kind of violent felons it was devised to root out.

    Under the program, local authorities have access to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency’s data base, at least one immigration agent is assigned to each agency and usually works out of their jails several days a week, and ICE routinely sends a bus to participating local jails to pick up people to be deported.

    ICE has agreements with 67 agencies in 23 states, including Georgia.

    Nationwide, more than 90,000 people have been deported, mostly from local jails. In Georgia, authorities with the Department of Public Safety, and Cobb, Hall and Whitfield counties have identified 1,533 illegal immigrants since Oct. 1.

    Cobb was one of the federal pilot programs starting in 1994. The county was accepted to the program in November 2006, when training began.

    Between July 1, 2007, when Cobb’s officers completed training, and the end of last year ICE took 3,180 people into custody who entered the country illegally and were to be deported.

    “Cobb County has a provision that if you are a foreigner and you are arrested for anything from spitting on the sidewalk to driving without a license, you’re gonna go to jail and you’re going to be placed with an immigration hold,

    "He had no license. He had a small amount of cocaine. And, he was in this country illegally."

    This is being a foreigner "spitting on the sidewalk"?

    Maybe would should also ask which laws actual Americans are allowed to ignore so that we have equal rights with the IAs. Personally I'd like a Free Pass on Tax laws.

    Their attitude is, if a law is working, let's change it.

    I'll take the free pass on the taxes also and I am tired of paying to license my car and sick of paying for car insurance, I would like to opt out of those thank you.

    Guess we all can pick and choose which laws we don't want to follow any more eh!!

    ALERT!!!PLEASE HELP THESE STATES!!!

    IDAHO:

    Bill: S1155 A bill that would suspend licenses for businesses that knowingly employ illegal immigrants and makes e-verifiy mandatory for all business, will not go forward...This bill written and introduced by Senator Jorgenson took the first step in the process in the State Affairs Committee where it passed unanimously. However, Chairman of the State affairs Committee Sen. Curt McKenzie has thrown the bill in his desk drawer and stated this bill is not going anywhere....so much for due process.

    We need to call, e-mail, and fax the following members and DEMAND they force Mc Kenzie to remove bill No. S 1155 from his desk drawer and continue forward with the democratic process so this can become law, finish the peoples business and stop stalling. It is what the citizens in Idaho expect of our legislatures...

    TAKE ACTION HERE!

    COLORADO

    Bill SB09-170 is still alive in the Senate - this is the bill that would give in-state tuition to illegal aliens who can not even legally work in our country. It is important for you to call and email the Senators listed below. Tell them to kill this anti-American bill. It is not fair to give tuition breaks to those illegally in the United States when citizens in Colorado can not even afford to send their own children to college.
