Up to 95 percent of undocumented immigrants recommended for deportation by the Suffolk probation department remain in the county, placing the financial burden of monitoring them on the county, Suffolk's probation director said Thursday.
The probation department spends up to $375,000 annually to supervise as many as 225 undocumented immigrants, including 36 sex offenders, John Desmond told the Suffolk Legislature's Public Safety Committee.
Undocumented immigrants on probation cost Suffolk $350G
Legislators reacted with outrage at hearing undocumented immigrants are being monitored by the county's probation department rather than being deported by federal officials.
Wow, what a difference between Suffolk and Queens.
