Lodi City Council members expressed interest this week in an aspect of federal immigration law that allows local police to detain individuals who are in the United States illegally.

The provision of the Immigration and Nationality Act has existed since 1996 but was not used until after Sept. 11, 2001, when Florida state police discovered that 9-11 hijacker Mohammed Atta had numerous run-ins with police in Florida but was never identified as having overstayed his visa.
