Valley jails to screen all inmates for immigration violations | rio, city, screen - Now - TheMonitor.com (http://www.themonitor.com/articles/rio-27433-city-screen.html - broken link)

RIO GRANDE CITY — The Starr County Detention Center on Tuesday became the latest border jail to implement a federal program aimed at screening the immigration status of all of its inmates.

By matching the fingerprints of all people booked into the local lockup against federal immigration databases, authorities hope to better identify those criminal aliens eligible for deportation after their release.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials estimate the "Secure Communities" initiative could lead to a 15 to 25 percent increase in the number of illegal immigrants deported from the county jail each year.
