A new program launched last week will make it easier to catch illegal immigrants who are booked into San Diego County jails, immigration and law enforcement officials said.

Called Secure Communities, the program allows law enforcement agencies to take a person's fingerprints and run them through FBI and Department of Homeland Security databases to determine whether the person is in the country illegally.

For years, the San Diego County Sheriff's Department, which runs the county's jails, has used Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents to check the immigration status of people booked into its jails.

Now, that same information will be directly available to the Sheriff's Department and any police department with access to fingerprint databases.

Under the program, anyone whose fingerprints are checked at participating jails or local police departments will be immediately reviewed for immigration violations, said Robin Baker, Immigration and Customs Enforcement director of detention and removal operations in San Diego.

*************************

Pedro Rios, an immigrant rights activist, said he sees potential problems in the program.

"I'm concerned that there isn't any visible oversight that will ensure that this program will not be abused," said Rios, the San Diego director of the American Friends Service Committee, a Quaker human rights organization.

Rios said overzealous officers might use the program to try to deport people on relatively minor violations.

Sorry Pedro, your illegal alien raza are not above the law. This is America and whether you consider breaking and entering to be a "relatively minor violation" or not it's still a crime.

This plus the new jail being built to speed the number of Illegals exit from our Country is a great start to Obama's enforcement plan.

Agreed. That and this will send the ethnocentric racist groups and their abundantly breeding illegal alien "constituency" into a complete meltdown:

Governor plans to completely eliminate welfare for families

3:58 PM | May 21, 2009
Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger is proposing to completely eliminate the state’s welfare program for families, medical insurance for low-income children and Cal Grants cash assistance to college and university students.
The proposals to sharply scale back the assistance that California provides to its neediest residents came in testimony by the administration this afternoon at a joint legislative budget committee hearing. It followed comments by the governor earlier today that he would be withdrawing a proposal to help balance the budget with billions of dollars of borrowing and replacing it with program reductions.
******************************
The proposals are intended to help close a budget deficit estimated at $21.3 billion.
