Orange County’s Superior Court contracts with a company that uses workers in Nogales, Mexico, to do the data entry of traffic tickets, a revelation on Thursday that outraged many who fear personal information is leaving the country.

The court has contracted since March 2006 with Cal Coast Data Entry, Inc., a Cerritos company that has a facility in Nogales.

“The company and the staff they employ are dedicated to keeping the public’s data secure and safe,” the statement said. “The court wants to ensure the public that private data is safe.”

But, why should we worry about it?  It’s not like future illegal aliens might end up with your identity, right?  Yes, folks, that was sarcasm.

Let’s hope Michelle Malkin brings this up on the O’Reilly Factor, where she is hosting tonight.
