Secure Communities Goes Statewide in Texas

Though counties in Virginia and California just voted to opt-out of the Secure Communities program from the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Texas has approved the program statewide.

The program automatically checks the immigration status of arrested individuals and sends the information too and from ICE.

It was announced Wednesday that all 254 counties in Texas would be participating in Secure Communities despite critics’ fear that it may frighten people and prevent them from reporting crimes.
