Prince William County, Va. renews 287(g) program excerpts:
Department of Homeland Security officials have signed new agreements authorizing nearly 70 state and local law enforcement agencies, including a contentious Arizona sheriff, to help arrest and deport illegal immigrants charged with violent or criminal acts.
The new agreement allows for "greater accountability and transparency," including regular audits and closer federal inspection, said Mr. Morton.
No agencies in the District or Maryland are participating. But in Virginia, the Prince William County Sheriff's Office and Police Department, and Prince William-Manassas Adult Detention Center have renewed their agreements. So have the Manassas Police Department, Manassas Park Police Department, Rockingham County Sheriff's Office and Shenandoah County Sheriff's Office.
If you feel your quality of life is suffering from crime in your area you need to ask your elected officals what is the cause and can the DHS 287(g) illegal deportation program help.
