And good riddance
The system, developed by the U.S. Departments of Justice and Homeland Security, uses fingerprints, photos and biographical information. It will be extended to other Oregon counties in coming months as part of the U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement Secure Communities initiative.
Since its launch in October 2008, ICE's Secure Communities initiative has identified more than 18,800 aliens nationwide charged with or convicted of Level 1 crimes, such as murder, rape and kidnapping. More than 4,000 of those have been deported.
ICE also has removed more than 25,000 foreign nationals charged with or convicted of Level 2 and 3 crimes, including burglary and property crimes.
I will wait patiently for the outcry from illegal alien apologists who claim that they only want to "keep families together" yet somehow oppose common sense ideas such as weeding out the worst of the worst to make sure that they get deported.
Why don't the groups that push amnesty applaud actions to rid our country of the scumbags who make the rest of the illegal alien population look worse than they already do? They could release a statement saying that "we support the idea of Juan stealing your job and your social security number but the minute he gets a DUI we want him gone!"
While I'm waiting for that statement we can at least rest easier knowing that an illegal alien who gets caught driving drunk will now be deported rather than released to kill American citizens.
