Persistence Pays Off
L.A. County Follows Antonovich Lead

Fox News -- August 12  
L.A. County Supervisor Mike Antonovich

Program to Find Illegal Aliens in Jails Approved  
    Los Angeles -- A program intended to root out illegal immigrants in Los Angeles County jails will start specifically targeting gang members, following a vote Tuesday by the Board of Supervisors.
    On a motion by Supervisor Michael Antonovich, the board voted to direct Sheriff Lee Baca to modify his department's agreement with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to ensure that known gang members receive priority for interviews that would determine their immigration status before their release from jail.
    "Every known gang member who is on the list for an interview should be interviewed prior to release back into our communities," Antonovich said.
    American Patrol Note: Mike Antonovich has fought illegal immigration for almost twenty years. He first spoke at one of our public meetings in the San Fernando Valley way back in 1994.
