The idea is for officers at the county's Adult Detention Center to become trained as ICE, (immigration and customs enforcement) officers, which would allow them to deport dangerous criminals who are also illegal aliens.
I like. The deportation proceedings begin after the sentence is served.
The Prince William Board of County Supervisors has asked county staff to complete the study by Jan 16. The county, where about 20 percent of residents are foreign-born, is one of several local governments grappling with a wave of new residents, many of them illegal immigrants. Supervisors said the problem is driving up costs for schools, health care, law enforcement and social services.
The study has been completed and the Supervisors are expected to sign a detailed invoice tomorrow, after which they'll send it to the federal government.
"I really think they should pay, but it is more symbolic," [Supervisor] Covington said.
The study will include the impact on the police department and jail and court system. Supervisor Maureen S. Caddigan requested that the county's hospitals and health clinics also be reviewed.
Additional education costs are not part of the study. So far, even the Hispanic organizations are supporting this effort because of the lack of detailed analysis on the impact of illegal aliens on local economies.
If this study got past the ACLU & were done in NYC, half the people would Be up in arms & half the people would be shocked & angry @where their tax dollars are going.

Gee, might you be talking about Iraq costing 1.8 billion a day? That's a guess, because 10 seconds on google revealed that the cost is 177 million per day. Still a lot of money, but nowhere near the outrageous figure you threw out there. Pulling "facts" out of your ass?

Also, I'd wager the number of crimes committed by illegal immigrants would plumet, our population of illegals becoming model, well, non-citizens at least.
