Fast-track screening for illegal immigrants launched

author Published by Chris Chmielenski

The Sheriff’s Department will be the first law enforcement agency in California to use a comprehensive system designed to streamline the identification and deportation of criminal illegal immigrants, officials announced Tuesday.
