Comment: Insecure Communities Report - Last week, The Homeland Security Advisory Council's task force issued a report on the Secure Communities Program. The New York Times reports “A task force advising an Obama administration deportation program has sharply criticized immigration officials for creating confusion about its purposes and has found that the program had an “unintended negative impact” on public safety in local communities. In a report on the program, known as Secure Communities, the task force said that the program had eroded public trust by leading to the detention of many immigrants who had not committed serious crimes, after officials said its aim was to remove “the worst of the worst” immigrant criminals from the United States.” Despite Ben Franklin's admonition “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.” that is precisely the strategy that was used by the Bush administration, and continued by the Obama administration in reaction to 9/11. The HSAC report is yet another reminder that the strategy does not work, and ought to be reversed. Please make your voice heard in our letters section, or by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
