"...we have another tool on our belts"

Locals Crack Down on Illegal Immigration
Lou Dobbs Tonight -- CNN -- March 28
Dobbs: ...In Suffern, New York, the mayor has announced that he will seek the same authority to identify illegal aliens among criminal suspects in his jails, turning those identified over to federal authorities. That authority is known as 287-G (ph).
Mayor Keegan: We're not doing this politically, for any political reason. We're doing this to have a tool for our police force to use so that being a pro-active police force so that they can keep the community safer.
Tucker: Advocates for illegal aliens are not happy about the mayor's decision. At a town meeting Thursday night, the mayor explained it's not his intention to deport every illegal alien in Suffern, only those who commit serious crimes. The police chief agrees.
Chief Osborn: The only difference is we now have another tool on our belts to go out there and get rid of the ones that are not only victimizing the legal residents but they're also victimizing the illegals, as well.
