ICE To Step Up Deportation Of Prisoners

More than 300,000 aliens, it is estimated, are in American prisons. Those who are undocumented and even those who are here legally with a green card will be liable for deportation after serving their terms behind bars. Now Immigration and Customs Enforcement is looking for more money to quicken the pace of deportation. The funds would go to scouring the prison for eligible candidates and to training local jail personnel in processing deportation cases. (See NY Times article.)
