Cobb County Georgia Screening Jails For Illegal Aliens

Bookmark and Share

Cobb County, Georgia is one of a handful of counties in the nation - and the first in Georgia - that have taken up the federal governments opportunity to send deputies through a training program to identify illegal aliens in their jails.

Section 287(g) of the Immigration and Nationality Act authorizes state and local law enforcement to work with federal agencies like ICE to identify and deport illegal aliens. Six Cobb County deputies went through an extensive training program for four weeks at an ICE training center in Herndon, Virginia and graduated June 8, 2007.

They are now ready to head to the jailhouse and start saving the taxpayers of Cobb County some serious tax dollars and to rid this country of some illegal alien thugs and criminals.

Congratulations Cobb County and a big thank you to Cobb County Sheriff Neil Warren! Now what about the rest of you sheriffs in this country?


The Cobb County Sheriff's Office has started screening county jail inmates to determine whether they are illegal immigrants.

The move makes the sheriff's office the first local law enforcement agency in Georgia to begin the practice and 1 of only a handful nationwide.

It comes after six deputies graduated Friday from a four-week training program with the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement in Herndon, Virginia. They were trained in areas such as immigration law, cross-cultural communication, civil rights, criminal law, document examination, alien processing and identification and enforcement.

In addition to conducting interviews, the newly empowered deputies will be able to determine whether anyone who enters the jail is in the country illegally by comparing fingerprints with those in ICE and FBI databases.

Thank Sheriff Neil Warren by giving him a call at: (770) 499-4609

Wayyyy back in the late 1990's when I was a LEO, I worked in Cobb County Police Dept :) Not to be confused with the sheriff's Dept of which there is also.

I'm a bit surprised however that Cobb County PD is not taking part in the program as well, as traditionally the Sheriff's Dept was a tool for the Court district and not an active crime pursuant.

But it does make some sense however, as the PD did 90% of the arrests and then we would turn them over to the Sheriff's office for processing.

If the Dept of Homeland Defense does not have the time or will to enforce the immigration laws then local law Enforcement will have to do the jobs that other Americans won't do!!!
