Congressional Hispanic Caucus Letter to President Obama

“Dear President Obama:

On behalf of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, we write to request that you freeze the Secure Communities Program (“S-Comm”), effective immediately. We appreciate and steadfastly support your efforts to reform broken immigration laws and to strengthen national security and public safety. Unfortunately, neither of these goals are served or advanced by the S-Comm policy in its current form. To the contrary, evidence reveals not only a striking dissonance between the program’s stated purpose of removing dangerous criminals and its actual effect; it also suggests that S-Comm may endanger the public, particularly among communities of color.”
