When a person is arrested and taken to West Valley Detention Center, along with the standard booking process, they will see a custody specialist who will determine if the person should be interviewed to see if they qualify for the deportation process.

The custody specialists run the person's name and social security number or alien number through several databases to determine whether the person is in the country legally or illegally, according to officials.

Officials will even take a look at the criminal record of a person who is a legal resident to determine if they are deportable because of their criminal activity, said Ostrander.

Some of the deportable offenses for lawful residents include child abuse, deviant and violent crimes and drug convictions.

Once that has been established, they are placed on detainer for deportation. After the criminal aliens complete their sentence in the United States, they will then be deported, she said. All of this information will be placed into an Alien File.

“I don't know why we have to spend our tax dollars to house these people,” said Charles Oakley of Victorville. “They should be deported immediately.”

While Ostrander realizes that this may not be a perfect system, the amount of people who are being identified and placed on detainers is a very positive thing.

At least they are beginning to realize that the line about them here "doing the jobs Americans won't do" has long outlived its usefulness. Reality is finally taking its rightful place in all of this.
