A look at the real meaning of the “Secure Communities” program of ICE (Immigration & Customs Enforcement) as a means of repression and deportation. “Secure Communities” allows state and local police to check the fingerprints of any individual they are booking into a jail against DHS immigration databases. If there is a “hit” in an immigration database, ICE is automatically notified, even if the person hasn’t been convicted of a crime. While its stated purpose is to target “dangerous criminal aliens,” the program has undermined community trust and indiscriminately targeted and destroyed immigrant families and communities.
