Criminal Alien Removal Act of 2008 - Directs the the Secretary of Homeland Security to carry out a Criminal Alien Program to:
(1) identify incarcerated criminal aliens (as defined by this Act);
(2) ensure that such aliens are not released into the community; and

(1) by December 31, 2010, identify each criminal alien incarcerated in a federal facility who will be deportable or removable upon release; and
