287(g) program results in over a thousand deportations

Gwinnett program results in 1400 deportations
Atlanta Journal Constitution

As part of the county's participation in a local-federal partnership called the 287(g) program, which officially began in November 2009, 18 sheriff's deputies were trained to enforce certain federal immigration laws. Inmates suspected of being in the country illegally are turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement after their cases are disposed of.
