    Immigrant groups criticize fingerprint initiative

    Immigrant groups criticize fingerprint initiative - Yahoo! News

    DENVER The federal government is rapidly expanding a program to identify illegal immigrants using fingerprints from arrests, drawing opposition from local authorities and advocates who argue the initiative amounts to an excessive dragnet.

    The program has gotten less attention than Arizona's new immigration law, but it may end up having a bigger impact because of its potential to round up and deport so many immigrants nationwide.

    The San Francisco sheriff wanted nothing to do with the program, and the City Council in Washington, D.C., blocked use of the fingerprint plan in the nation's capital. Colorado is the latest to debate the program, called Secure Communities, and immigrant groups have begun to speak up, telling the governor in a letter last week that the initiative will make crime victims reluctant to cooperate with police "due to fear of being drawn into the immigration regime."


    OK...can we FINALLY be done with this "Arizona is Racist" bull**** and just speak truth? The left doesnt want ANY illegal immigration reform or enforcement. It doesnt matter WHO does it or how its done.

    Thanks for the post. Now lets see if Obama will go after the sancturary cities for not cooperating or enforcing federal laws.

    "This month, Washington, D.C., police decided not to pursue the program because the City Council introduced a bill that would prohibit authorities from sharing arrest data with ICE out of concern for immigrants' civil rights". So someone is arrested and fingerprinted.

    DC doesn't want to pass on the info to ICE becuase the person may be an illegal, besides whatever reason for the arrest? When are people going to understand that it is against federal law for non citiizens to be in the US without permission. How is this a civil rights issue?

    Federal funds should be cut and withdrawn from cities/towns that do not cooperate with this program.

    Amazing how the media can claim its not bias when it describes pro-illegals as just "immigrant groups". Just by looking at the title of the article you would think that they were talking about legal immigrants. Of course this is nothing more than pro-illegals trying to make it harder for the authorities to catch illegals.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
