Federal agents to target illegal immigrants in jails and prisons
Federal officials plan to step up efforts to deport illegal immigrants who have been jailed for committing crimes in Oregon and Washington.
"Aliens that are criminals will be arrested and convicted, and if they're subject to removal, we're going to get to them before they get back on the street," Neil Clark, field office director for Immigration and Customs Enforcement's detention and removal operations in Seattle, told The Oregonian newspaper.
"I'm going to accomplish as much as I can," he said. "If I can do the complete workload, I will. If I can't, then I'm going to get to the worst criminals first."
And do the rest of them get "probationary status" aka amnesty?
Make sure that you keep up with the phone calls/emails/faxes. When the amnesty was proposed our legislators saw actual spontaneous outrage from their consituents and were put back on their heels. Now the illegal aliens supporters have organized Spanish only phone lines to ask for amnesty.
Make sure that you have been heard.
