5 Va. jurisdictions join federal program targeting violent illegal immigrants

author Published by Chris Chmielenski

Law enforcement agencies in five Northern Virginia jurisdictions have joined a nationwide federal immigration records sharing program that’s designed to take the most violent illegal immigrants off the street.

Under the program, known as Secure Communities, Arlington, Loudoun, Fauquier and Rappahannock counties, along with the city of Alexandria, will now run the fingerprints of every jail inmate through biometrics immigration records held by the Department of Homeland Security and FBI criminal records. Fairfax and Prince William counties are already a part of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement program.
