U.S. Attorney Benjamin B. Wagner, who in 2012 stood with Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims to announce a marijuana growing crackdown, is concerned that county jails like the Fresno County Jail, overseen by Mims, are releasing dangerous undocumented immigrant criminals before federal law enforcement officials can file criminal immigration charges. He said that is part of the reason federal indictments in 2014 in Fresno hit the lowest level in at least five years. Indictments in 2014 were down 36% from 2013.
