The misnamed Secure Communities program purportedly targets high-level criminal offenders, but, in reality, the vast majority of deportations through the program have been of low-level offenders and non-criminals.

Several states have opted out of the program, but the federal government refuses to recognize those decisions.

Take a moment to email President Obama and tell him to stop S-Comm.

Stop the Secure Communities Program

The misnamed Secure Communities program (S-Comm) purportedly targets high-level criminal offenders, but, in reality, the vast majority of deportations through the program have been of low-level offenders and non-criminals.

Several states have opted out of the program, but the federal government refuses to recognize those decisions.

As president, you should use your administrative powers to halt deportations through the program, which are hurting our economy and tearing families apart indiscriminately.

From the outset of Secure Communities, U.S. Immigration and Customs officials have deceived government officials and the public about the nature of the program. Now it's time for you to take a stand.
