Despite Opposition, ICE Expands SComm


"Obama administration officials have announced that a contentious fingerprinting program to identify [unauthorized] immigrants will be extended across Massachusetts and New York next week, expanding federal enforcement efforts despite opposition from the governors and immigrant groups in those states.  In blunt e-mails sent Tuesday to officials and the police in the two states, Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials said the program, Secure Communities, would be activated “in all remaining jurisdictions” this Tuesday." - New York Times, May 12, 2012.
