Deschutes County Sheriff Larry Blanton is getting some statewide attention after a local demonstration from an immigrants rights group accused the County of racial profiling. Sheriff Blanton was on Lars Larson's show yesterday to talk about the allegations: "The Immigrant Family Services have accused the folks here in Central Oregon as being discriminative and profiling illegal immigrants, which I take offense to.” Lars: “In fact they say that people are being kicked out of the State for things like broken taillights.  Is that true?” Blanton: “No, it's not true.” Blanton says illegal immigrants are not a problem in Deschutes County. He explains that of the nearly 6000 people booked into the County Jail last year. About 100, or less than 2%, were placed on "ICE" detainers because they didn't have proper I.D.
