A group of protesters demonstrated in front of the Deschutes County Building Monday, protesting how the Deschutes County Jail handles the immigration status of inmates. According to a written report;  Sheriff Larry Blanton says he's following the law and handles inmates no different than any other Oregon sheriff.  The immigrant advocates claim the jail contacts U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement - or ICE - for suspects who are detained, even for minor offenses like traffic stops. The main concern is how local law enforcement handles situations in which officers contact illegal immigrants who can not  or do not provide identification.  Blanton says they have all suspects reviewed by ICE because they never know who they are dealing with.
