Secure Communities program under scrutiny in Austin

The past few years have seen heated debates about Secure Communities between the Austin City Council in Texas, and Travis County Sheriff Greg Hamilton, who will not run in this year’s elections.

Travis County Jail signed on to share fingerprint information of people they had arrested or detained to the Federal Bureau of Investigations and Immigration and Customs Enforcement via a program called Secure Communities (S-Comm) in January 2009.

What happens in the program is that the fingerprint information will be forwarded to the FBI, and then the FBI sends the information to ICE to determine if the person in question has an immigration history. Should that person have immigration history, ICE will issue a detainer on the individual so that they cannot leave police custody until after ICE has handled the inmate.

Austin Chief of Police Art Acevedo had voiced his sentiments against S-Comm earlier.
