“Secure Communities” is Wrong for Worcester

The Secure Communities program (S-Comm) automatically checks fingerprints of every arrested person taken at booking against Immigration databases. Based on these database checks, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) then transfers people suspected of being deportable straight into the detention and deportation system from the criminal justice system.

In the deportation system, people are often sent far away to remote detention centers— with no loved ones or even lawyers to help defend against deportation. ICE claims that this program is intended to remove only the most violent criminal immigrants, but the majority of people affected by this program have no convictions, or have committed only low-level misdemeanors.

Worcester is a city built by immigrants- Secure Communities is Wrong for Worcester!
