White said this week that his decision to participate in the federal program was consistent with his past policies and was intended to ensure the city has the right information to inform immigration agents when “deportable felons” enter the city jail.

“We ought to have all the tools that are available, and our program shouldn’t be lumped in with what some other city does that uses it for some other purpose,” the mayor said.

White asked federal officials to expedite the training needed for the city to implement the program after a Houston police officer was shot and seriously wounded by an illegal immigrant during a March 5 drug raid.
