More than 7,000 illegal immigrant criminals have been funneled from San Bernardino County jails back to their home countries in the past two years, sheriff's statistics show.

Before the federal program was implemented in 2006 at West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga, there was little chance that jailed illegal immigrants would be deported.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials simply didn't have the ability to reach into jails nationwide and scoop out all those who didn't belong in the country.

That has changed with seven San Bernardino County sheriff's employees working full-time to screen for illegal immigrants and expedite their deportations.

Imagine that 7,000 from one county in 2 years. I'm willing to bet that half of them are already back in the USA.

Yes, and yet, we have people still trying to tell us that there is only about 12 million illegals in this country, when in fact, the number is closer to 20 million or more.

I heard their numbers were actually closer to 40M.. which would mean over 10% of the population (more than 1 out of 10 is an illegal immigrant)..

I am not sure that I would go that high, but you can believe it well into the 20 million mark and possibly higher.

Scary percentages, Quirky.

However, no matter who is correct . . . ONE IS TOO MANY!

I tend to believe 20M is more accurate as well. That 12M has been repeated for more than 5 years now.

Yeah, all the while more and more illegals have continued to come across the border and into our country.
