Immigrant advocacy groups criticize fingerprint initiative

DENVER – The federal government is rapidly expanding a program to identify illegal immigrants using fingerprints from arrests, drawing opposition from local authorities and advocates who argue the initiative amounts to an excessive dragnet.
The program has gotten less attention than Arizona's new immigration law, but it may end up having a bigger impact because of its potential to round up and deport so many immigrants nationwide.

Of course they criticize it. They depend on the amount of people they help for the amount of funding they recieve. The less people they help, the less they can claim they need.
I got an idea - seeing as most of their grants probably come from FEDERAL grants, how about they only serve legal immigrants? You know, the ones that aren't breaking FEDERAL law?
Oh wait, never mind. I forgot I'm talking about The Obamessiah's federal Government, not ours.
