    Adding their voices to a growing number of opponents, Los Angeles City Councilman Bernard C. Parks and Councilwoman Jan Perry have called on the city to support limiting the scope of local participation in a controversial federal deportation program.

    The City Council resolution proposed Tuesday on the Secure Communities program comes as San Francisco County prepares to implement a new policy seeking to do the same. On Wednesday, law enforcement officials, including Yolo County Sheriff Ed Prieto, held a national news conference to outline their concerns about the federal program.

    Secure Communities, under which arrestees' fingerprints are shared with Immigration and Customs Enforcement, was touted as a way to help identify and deport illegal immigrants convicted of serious crimes. It has come under fire for leading to the deportation of those who were either arrested but not subsequently convicted of a crime or convicted of misdemeanors or infractions, such as a traffic violation.

    Of 38,828 people in California deported through Secure Communities between May 2009 and March of this year, about 12,000 were charged with or convicted of major violent offenses, while nearly 11,000 were classified as non-criminal deportees, according to ICE statistics.

    At what point are Americans going to demand that invading Mexicans stop being treated like they are "the chosen ones" and start being treated like invading foreigners, which is what they are.

    Send them to Guantanamo!!!

    The key word is ILLEGAL It shouldn't be voted on, it's the LAW.
    And I believe that the States don't have a say on it because technically they are within federal borders. (not exactly sure on that)

    That’s the first problem: being arrested doesn’t mean you’re guilty; one doesn’t forfeit his due process rights because he’s suspected of a crime – including being in the country illegally.

    And that leads to the second problem: what criteria are used to determine which detainee’s fingerprints are sent to the Feds without violating equal protection rights – will all detainees’ fingerprints be forwarded or just those who ‘look illegal.’

    No one who is deported under this program is innocent, they are all in the country without permission. You can bluster all you want, but that is illegal. If it makes you feel any better, which I doubt, they are given a lawyer and a chance to prove that they were born here, or have a valid visa.

    Actually since being in the country illegaly is a civil violation rather than a criminal .

    violation, they do NOT have the right to due process. So once again we see that you dont have a fucking clue.

    Second of all, it's pretty simple if you don't have ID that proves you're here legally, you're fingerprints are sent in no matter what you look like.

    Which is more than has to be done according to the COTUS. For the idiots who believe they have a Constitutional right to anything.

    And thousands of dollars of US taxpayer money is spent to defend each illegal rather than feed the poor in America. That makes each illegal a criminal and a monster!

    The constitution states that anyone who steps foot in this country is entitled to due process. It doesn't make them a "monster" if they are excersizing the rights that our constitution gave them. :nono:
