States make immigration arrests under fed program

September 22, 2008 | National News

Colorado created its state patrol unit during a 2006 special legislative session that was sparked by the arrests of more than 100 suspected illegal immigrants in crashes and traffic stops in a two-day period.

Other states with ICE agreements include California, Georgia and Florida. Arizona has seven participating agencies, North Carolina eight, and Virginia has the most with nine. Since January 2006, Arizona's Maricopa County Sheriff's Department leads in arrests with 15,000.
