Chertoff vows to end Immigrations "catch & release"

Well, it'll be good news if it's true. Homeland Security Secretary Chertoff has vowed to end the practice of catching illegal immigrants and releasing them into America with a stern warning that they'd better show up at a future court date. It's a warning that goes almost completely unheeded. Chertoff is suggesting that this practice end completely and that 100% of illegals caught get detained and sent back to the country they entered illegally from.

I'm all for it. I think it's ludicrous to do otherwise and that's even without the additional security concerns of the post-9/11 world. Let's see if Chertoff and President Bush really mean it.
