DHS OIG: SComm ‘continues to face opposition, criticism, and resistance’

"We did not find evidence that ICE intentionally misled the public or States and local jurisdictions during implementation of Secure Communities. However, ICE did not clearly communicate to stakeholders the intent of Secure Communities and their expected participation. This lack of clarity was evident in its strategic plan, its outreach efforts, memorandums of agreement signed by States, and its responses to inquiries regarding participation. ICE senior leadership also missed opportunities to provide clear direction to its officials implementing Secure Communities. As a result, 3 years after implementation began; Secure Communities continues to face opposition, criticism, and resistance in some locations." – DHS OIG, Mar. 27, 2012.
