    LOS ANGELES - Hundreds of human rights groups are asking the Obama administration to end programs that allow local police to check the immigration status of arrestees.

    A letter to the president Wednesday says it encourages racial profiling and calls it a dangerous merger of the federal immigration enforcement system with state criminal justice systems.

    The letter is signed by the AFL-CIO and a broad range of criminal justice, peace, religious, ethnic and immigrant rights groups around the country, including the Southern Poverty Law Center.

    Immigration and Customs Enforcement is expanding a program that permits local police officers to run arrestees' names through a Department of Homeland Security database.

    An e-mail to Homeland Security seeking comment wasn't immediately returned.

    Is there no end to the demands of the open-border loonies??? What the hell do they think this country is??? A sanctuary for the criminal element as well? Geez! God help us all!!!

    Wait this is LA? Not Arizona? Here I thought I was reading about Arizona’s law again-- but it is LA's. Why is LA boycotting Arizona with the same law on their books??

    Mebbe we should get teachers to check for illegal immigrants rather than cops? Emergency room doctors? Social workers?

    Tell me...who is tasked with detecting the crime of illegal immigration? No one?

    Every American is duty bound to help remove those evil ones that have infiltrated into the United States.

    At food stamp locations, you could just leave an ICE truck near the main entrance to shoo the flies away. And give Americans extra benefits to find the little monkeys who hide in the bushes.

    A few weeks ago, street gangs members held a new conference and laughingly refered to themselves as "human rights groups".
