ICE Culls California Prisons
Immigration and Custom Enforcements (ICE) has a program to train prison personnel to scan the papers of inmates as to their immigrant status. Not all states or local jurisdictions cooperate. Now ICE has initiates an intensive search for the undocumented in the California prisons. (See LA Times article.) More than a third of those incarcerated around Los Angeles have previously been deported but re-entered the country illegally. This is the soft target ICE is now going after.
