Department Of Homeland Security To Reform Secure Communities Deportation Program

Quote:
The program, which allows immigration authorities to access fingerprints taken by local police, has come under fire for netting a large number of undocumented immigrants who have never committed a serious crime, even though it is touted as a method for deporting violent criminals.



The reforms announced Friday will allow Immigration and Customs Enforcement to incorporate more discretion into Secure Communities to filter out men and women who have not been convicted of crimes.


"Secure Communities is a critical tool for law enforcement agencies working to protect the citizens and communities they serve," ICE Director John Morton said in a statement. "However, we need to do a better job of ensuring that the program is more focused on targeting those that pose the biggest risk to communities."
