Colorado Governor stands firm against Immigration policy due to lack of data

November 29, 2010 § Leave a comment

Advocates for immigrants’ rights are commending Gov. Bill Ritter for withholding Colorado participation in a federal deportation program unless there is a provision for data that shows the program is accomplishing its mission. 32 states have signed the standard Secure Communities agreement that Ritter wants modified. Ritter has waited months for Immigration to say whether it will put into the participation agreement that states will get data on the effectiveness of Secure Communities.
Secure Communities is meant to coordinate U.S. Department of Homeland Security and U.S. Department of Justice databases to screen people arrested on suspicion of serious crimes, determine whether they are in the country legally, and consider deportation if they are not. (Pueblo Chieftain)
