U.S. to Expand Jail Immigration Checks: Report

from Newsmax

The Obama administration is expanding immigration checks to nearly all local jails, which could sharply increase U.S. deportation cases, The Washington Post reported on Tuesday.

Expanding the program could result in a tenfold increase in illegal immigrants who have been convicted of crimes and identified for deportation, the report said, citing current and former U.S. officials.

The program, initiated by former President George W. Bush, began in October and operates in 48 counties, the Post said.
