D.C. bill would block fingerprinting
Some D.C. Council members are looking to prevent police from joining a federal fingerprinting program that allows authorities to check the immigration status of people they arrest, WJLA reports.
Council members Phil Mendelson and Jim Graham are sponsoring a bill that seeks to uphold the city's policy that local police stay out of immigration enforcement, according to Brian DeBose, Graham's spokesman. DeBose said the legislation likely will be introduced May 4.
