NLG Opposes New “Secure Communities” Program

Immigration and Customs Enforcement has implemented a new program called “Secure Communities,” which is supposed to target serious criminals.

Ashlee Albies, chair of the Portland chapter of the National Lawyers Guild, says Secure Communities puts families at risk.

“ICE says that Secure Communities is meant for violent criminals, but they’re using it to deport people for minor offenses,” says Albies. “When victims call in domestic violence cases, sometimes the victim gets picked up as well.”
