Under the new program that begins today, called “Secure Communities,” every person booked into jail throughout San Diego County will be screened to determine his or her criminal and immigration history, said Lauren Mack, spokeswoman for Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

“It starts the process rolling right at the intake,” Mack said.

Fingerprints that are already routinely taken during the booking process will now be checked simultaneously with the fingerprint identification systems of the Department of Justice and the Department of Homeland Security, which should reveal prior criminal and immigration history.
Immigration authorities, as well as the law enforcement agency that makes an arrest, are automatically notified within a few hours if there is a match in both systems, reducing the risk that a criminal immigrant will be released back into the community.
