January 9, 2012—Today, NDLON, CCR and Cardozo Immigrant Justice Clinic released a 9-page legal memo from the Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency dated October 2, 2010, just days before Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano announced Secure Communities would no longer be considered a voluntary program. The memo reversed the position of ICE, stated in an earlier memo, that making Secure Communities mandatory would raise constitutional concerns.
