Immigration service to check fingerprints of anyone arrested starting June 1

Original post made on May 20, 2010

A U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman Wednesday cast doubt on San Francisco's ability to be completely excluded from a new federal program under which the fingerprints of all those arrested for any crime would be shared with ICE.

I say it's a great idea! But why implement the program if counties can "opt out".

Why haven't we been doing this all along? If you are arrested for a crime, shouldn't your fingerprints/your ID be verified and confirmed? No wonder this country is in such a mess!!

"Hennessey asked state Attorney General Jerry Brown in a letter Tuesday to help San Francisco opt out, saying that the program conflicts with San Francisco's sanctuary law shielding those booked for minor crimes.
"

Why does SF want to opt out? And why is Brown helping with the opt out? DO NOT vote for Brown!

I am confused here: why do we want to keep illegals who have been booked for a crime? That makes no sense! SF is going too far, they are having budget deficits and they still want to keep the illegals even if they have been fingerprinted for minor crimes? WOW! Unbelievable!

Everyone here is missing the point, these people that have committed crimes, and could be deported, are also potential voters for Brown and others in his camp. Why would he want them sent out of the country were they cannot vote. It's always about either getting votes or getting money.

It's hard to believe that arrested fingerprints aren't shared with all law enforcement in the US. That is how to solve OTHER crimes! Historically, bigger criminals are CAUGHT for lesser crimes.. It's not only about illegals, it's about effective law enforcement. Al Capone, who had gunned down hundreds, was arrested for income tax evasion. Many of today's unsolved crimes, would suddenly be solved.
How can San Fran opt out of the country.

Steve P. I love your comment...I have been saying this for a log time, good bye Cholo.

And by the way, San Francisco Official's are all sick. Opted out because illegals will be deported...so what's wrong with that...If you are a US citizen and commit a crime, go to jail and if you're an illegal and commit another a crime...deport them. Sounds like a common sense move or is that a no vote getter...and why are you worried about votes by illegals who shouldn't be allowed to vote in the first place...or is that too much common sense for one day. Hey Cholo, if you can hear me, what do you have to say about this??? Notice I didn't say, Hey Cholo what do you have to THINK about this???

I've been very very busy trying to figure out how to create fake finger prints; Web Link

As soon as I put my flyer together for wide distribution Arizona, I will tell others how it's done!

Drop by Home Depot and look at the driveways to the store, it is crowded with ILLEGALS AND ICE AND OUR POLICE OUR DOING NOTHING. ITS EITHER LEGAL OR ILLEGAL, AND AT THE MOMENT IT IS ILLEGAL. WE SHOULD GIVE NO AIDE TO SANTUARY CITIES. WE NEED TO CLOSE THE BORDER AND SEAL IT, NOT A COMPREHENSIVE IMMIGARTION BILL. NO AMNESTY OR ANTHING ELSE UNTIL THE BORDER IS SEALED.

Susan,

I bet if it were white people coming across the border from Canada Obama would have a soldier every 5 feet. He is a racist pure and simple.

Obama selectively enforces law which he likes and disregards the ones he does not like. Anybody hear one constructive thing he is doing for unemployment or for the economy? I would like to hear what his plan is.

If someone is here illegally, deport them. Make sure they don't come back again. Close up those borders to terrorists or anyone else that does not go through the legal procedures to come here. I bet terrorists come through Mexico to get to the US as it is not that hard!!

One reason that it's impossible to seal our borders is because the government can count on the voters who elected them to hide out and limit their whining and commit to NADA!

Voters like susie q, sh_t, Lela don't read much, rely on this blog for all of their worldly information and follow the crowd like sheep! tee hee hee, tee hee hee...fess up cowards, you are AFRAY of your elected reps. Keep it simple, nothing is going to happen to you for having been duped by your elected reps. They count on your inaction and your stupidity to whine in secret on blogs!

Amnesty is on the way...keep voting, it doesn't work FOR YOU! PING!

"[Cholo] what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul."
