Default Gwinnett Sheriff To Enforce Federal Immigration Laws

Gwinnett Sheriff To Enforce Federal Immigration Laws

GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. -- The Gwinnett County Sheriff will become the fourth law enforcement agency in the state to enforce federal immigration laws.

The sheriff said that 18 deputies received training from the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement in the 287(g) program this week in Charleston, S.C. Trained deputies can now directly check a federal database, shorting a process that used to take weeks, down to about 48-hours.

"People who are in the country illegally and are taking American jobs are migrating out of those communities. It is not a well intentioned law gone bad it is a well intentioned law now becoming popular to use. It is growing and everywhere across the country where it's being used it works. Enforcement works," said D.A. King, President of the Dustin Inman Society, a group which opposes illegal immigration.

This sounds great, but as long as they are not policing to enforce against illegal immigration alone, there is very little to be encouraged about. The last I heard of this program, it was only available for prisons to investigate whether prisoners who were caught for some other crime were an illegal. What they should be doing is policing against illegal immigration as a crime by itself and making prisoners out of illegal immigrants for the sole reason of illegal immigration.

If the police pull somebody over and they can't speak English, the police should assume that the person driving is an illegal immigrant until the driver can prove otherwise. Of course, just because the person can speak English, does not mean they are not an illegal immigrant.
