The 287g Federal Agreement Program between the Department of Homeland Security DHS-ICE and the Sheriff of Los Angeles County is in effect in the City of the Angels. Aside from the Immigration and Customs Enforcement training of hundreds of sheriff deputies in the detection of undocumented prisoners, the agreement calls for ICE police to be stationed inside the largest jail system in the US. The large detail of agents are located in the prisoner release areas where their job is to interrogate just about all the Latino prisoners and identify all the potentially undocumented prisoners.
