Cops in Orange County will have more power

The cops in Orange County, Calif. will have more power soon.

Orange County Sherriff Michael S. Carona announced a plan to train 200+ deputies this year to use federal immigration databases to catch criminal immigrants. So instead of federal Immigration and Customers Enforcement officers interviewing suspects who are immigrants--sheriff's deputies will be able to.

Latino advocacy groups think this could promote racial profiling. But wait - Corona said that people wouldn't be caught just because they looked like undocumented immigrants.

Sure. And today I had lunch with Elvis.
