New Federal Team Will Focus on Immigrant Fugitives

April 29, 2006 - Posted at 12:45 p.m. CST

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) _ A new federal team of investigators will

be formed in Kansas City to catch immigrants who disappear after

they are ordered to leave the country, or who return after they are

deported.

The team will be part of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement

office. And it is expected to be operating within four months.

A group called Sons and Daughters of Immigrants says it will

support the new task force if it focuses on convicts and others of

little benefit to society. But a spokeswoman for the group says it

does not make sense to deport immigrants who are working and paying

taxes.

Fugitive operation teams have been formed in various cities

since Immigration and Customs Enforcement was created in 2003.
