Larson Takes On Illegal Immigration Issue

Fayette County's top prosecutor says he's going it alone, locally, in trying to identify undocumented immigrants who are arrested.

Commonwealth's Attorney Ray Larson tells 27 NEWSFIRST that he's keeping lists of those who are accused of felonies and may be in the U.S. illegally.

Larson indicates those names will be forwarded to federal officials and he hopes they'll be deported after serving their sentences.

It comes as controversy rages around the nation about how to deal with immigration issues.
