ICE Expands Biometric Programs to Aid Law Enforcement in Illinois


In November, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (“ICE”) expanded its use of biometric programs for fingerprint identification and sharing into Crawford, DeWitt, Ford and Piatt Counties in Illinois.

Thus, ICE is now using and sharing biometric information in 26 Illinois counties to identify aliens, both lawfully and unlawfully present in the U.S., who are booked into local custody for an alleged crime. These individuals can then be tracked through the justice system to the point of conviction or exoneration.
