Via @TheCCR: ICE’s Spin Cannot Obscure Truth About “Secure Communities” Program
via the Center for Constitutional Rights:
In a document dated August 17, 2010, ICE purports to “set the record straight” on the Secure Communities (S-Comm) program. But ICE’s spin cannot alter the reality and, in fact, this new document contains critical admissions and breakthroughs prompted by community advocacy and federal litigation.
- ICE has finally admitted that the majority of persons targeted and deported through S-Comm will never be dangerous criminals.
- ICE has finally announced a procedure for local jurisdictions to request to opt out of the problematic S-Comm program.
