SComm Debut in D.C.

"Federal authorities on Tuesday will begin
checking the immigration statuses of all people arrested in the
District, marking the D.C. debut of a controversial program that has put
city leaders at odds with the Obama administration.
  The
Secure Communities program, in place in more than 3,000 jurisdictions
nationwide, allows U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to review
the same arrest data that the FBI receives to try to locate people who
are illegally in the United States. 
Although federal officials say the program has been a success —
statistics show the initiative has led to the deportation of more than
49,000 felons — District leaders decried the effort as dangerous to
D.C. residents." –
