Secure Communities a Trap for the Unwary

Posted on by

ICE’s ‘Secure Communities’ program is NOT voluntary.

A voluntary program to run all criminal suspects’ fingerprints through an immigration database was only voluntary until cities refused to participate, thousands of recently released documents show. The Obama administration then tightened the rules so that U.S. cities had no choice but to have the fingerprints checked. The documents made public by the Homeland Security Department provide a behind-the-scenes glimpse of how the administration scrambled to quiet the criticisms and negative publicity surrounding the immigration enforcement program known as Secure Communities.” Suzanne Gamboa, Canadian Press, Feb. 15, 2011.
