Secure Communities Program (S-COMM) Endangers Civil Rights and Securitybostonmayday
Boston stands up for its immigrant community! On Saturday, February 12th, 2011 at 1PM, people from across Massachusetts will come together at the State House to protest the State’s intention to join the anti-immigrant and racist “Secure Communities” program (S-COM). Under the guise of public safety, “S-Comm” endangers the civil rights and security of all and is particularly an attack on immigrants and people of color. The federal program mandates local law enforcement to cross check the fingerprints of those arrested against the Homeland Security’s database in search of immigration status.
