Obama Administration Moves to Make Immigration Secure Communities Initiative Mandatory


by in Criminal Appeals

A voluntary initiative set up by the Obama administration to cross reference all criminal suspects’ fingerprints through an online immigration database began as voluntary. However, some cities declined to engage in the program. President Obama’s underlings then changed the rule to make cooperation mandatory.

Information released recently by the U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security revealed the until-now secret back room dealings aimed at stifling dissent and blowback from the initiative. The Obama administration reportedly threatened to hold back federal funding and FBI records and cooperation from agencies and departments that refused to cooperate with the database immigration checking system.

The program is known as the “Secure Communities” initiative. Some notable cities that initially refused to cooperate with the program included Washington D.C., Chicago, Santa Clara, Philly, and San Fran.

Despite these cities resistance and refusal to engage in the program, ICE officials still culled local records in search of illegal immigration criminal suspects and defendants.
