Stanislaus County inmates all get immigration check
Published on Mon, Mar 08, 2010
Each time someone is booked at Stanislaus County jail facilities, the inmate's fingerprints are sent electronically to the FBI's criminal database to check the person's criminal history.
New technology will now simultaneously send those fingerprints to immigration officials trying to identify dangerous criminals who entered the country illegally.
The technology is part of a federal initiative called Secure Communities, which checks the immigration status of anyone booked at jails across the country.
