Philadelphia is expected to end the arrangement that permits federal immigration agents to scrutinize the city's computerized list of arrests, including country of origin and other data, Everett Gillison, the deputy mayor for public safety, said Sunday.

It was conducted mostly in Spanish, with electronic headsets available to permit simultaneous translation into English.
