WASHINGTON -- The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced Wednesday that it has deported a total of 392,000 people during the 2010 fiscal year. About 35,910 were the product of the Secure Communities program. Of these, half came from California.

According to the new figures, 195,772 convicted criminals were deported. Of these,150,227 were convicted of more serious crimes, and 45,545 were convicted of minor offenses such as traffic violations. 

There were more than 23,000 more general deportations this year than in 2008, and 81,000 more deportations of criminals.

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said that the operation of programs such as Secure Communities are key to achieving this goal. Under Secure Communities, the fingerprints of people arrested by local police agencies are shared with the federal office of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). 

Currently, 650 jurisdictions across the country use the program. ICE expects this number to increase to 900 by next year.

Secure Communities has been seriously challenged by civil rights organizations. The government initially presented the program as voluntary. However, when jurisdictions such as San Francisco tried to opt out, it was not possible.

In California, where 38 of its 58 jurisdictions have implemented Secure Communities, 16,764 criminals were deported.

That's a pretty good start but at that rate it would still take ten years to deprt all the illegals. Hopefully some will get the message and "self deport".

Hate this way this article is worded, it is biased and horrible!!! The people being deported are NOT criminals but family members, people who have been slaving themselves away for the american economy, if it weren't for these immigrants and hard workers the American Capitalist economy would not be able to thrive! Before you go around wishing all immigrantsa gone think about where your food is coming from and off of whose backs your living.

It would be better if it was 2 million yearly. That would make a real dent. Imagine if we spent all the money on the Afghan war and instead used to to weed out all the illegal immigrants.

Then we would really have something to smile about.
