Sheriff to track illegal residents

By Carol Robinson, The Birmingham News

Jefferson County sheriff's deputies will begin tracking illegal immigrants throughout the county, keeping tabs on who they are, where they live and their movement throughout the community.

Not everyone is happy about the new database and those say the manpower could be better used pursuing violent criminals and targeting high-crime areas.

The new program launched by Sheriff Mike Hale allows all sworn deputies to enter legally obtained information - including photographs - of illegal immigrants into a database to be shared with other law officers throughout the region. Deputies, he said, won't be out hunting illegal immigrants, but will document those they come into contact with during the normal course of business.
