LOS ANGELES -- The numbers can look staggering. Nearly 20,000 inmates in California's state prison system have ICE holds on them, meaning there's a good chance they're illegal immigrants. More than 3,000 of those inmates are serving time for murder.

Because many of those convicts likely spent time in and out of local jails before committing the crimes that landed them in state prison, federal officials have begun working with more city and county jails to try to identify and deport more illegal immigrants earlier in their criminal careers.

The misleading thing is the fact that most Hispanics that get arrested state themselves to be caucasion, which they are of course, but to not list them as Hispanic skews the numbers a lot.

That's probably why it takes more time to identify them. In the meantime, at least they're locked up.
