Border Fingerprint Program Nets Felons

30,000 of the almost 700,000 undocumented noncitizens who were stopped at the border were determined to be felons based on a new computerized fingerprint check.  Those with outstanding warrants are taken into custody, those with serious felony records may be charged under federal law as illegal reentrants; most with clean records are simply sent back.
