|Going back on their word, this past Friday the Deval Patrick – Tim Murray administration reneged on the promise to enact the Department of Homeland Security’s Secure Communities Program. In a letter to the Department of Homeland Security the Secretary of Public Safety Mary Elizabeth Heffernan outlined the administration’s objections to the program and informed that Massachusetts would not be participating. For his part Governor Patrick told the press that he made the decision because he’s the Governor of the “whole Commonwealth”.
“I’m the governor of the whole of Commonwealth and I’m trying to make decisions and do make decisions that I believe are in the best interest of the whole Commonwealth and I’ve done that in this case,” he said to reporters this afternoon.
It’s apparent that to Deval Patrick and Tim Murray the “whole Commonwealth” includes Al Qaeda and other terrorist organization members, MS-13 gangbangers, and rapitsts. Those are the exact types of people that Secure Communities is designed to weed out. But don’t worry the Governor isn’t soft on “illegal immigration”.
Patrick also batted away suggestions that he’s soft on illegal immigrants.”We have, as I said, consistently sent all fingerprints to the FBI. That’s a program and a practice that has gone on for some time now, long before Secure Communities and we have referred convicted felons to Immigrations and Customs Enforcement for deportation,” Patrick said.
If current FBI screening was adequate to weed out criminal immigrants, why would the Obama Administration feel the need to have the Secure Communities program in the first place. A program that in it’s pilot stage in Boston removed, according to ICE (see image at the left), a violent rapist from the streets of Boston. In an Op-Ed in the San Francisco Chronicle, Janet Napolitano has touted the benefits of the Secure Communities program. She outlines that without Secure Communities, the FBI and ICE do not share information.
Secure Communities was launched in 2008. Historically, when state and local authorities booked someone for a criminal offense, they submitted fingerprints only to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Under Secure Communities, these fingerprints are then automatically cross-checked against immigration records as well.If the fingerprint-check indicates that an individual is in the United States unlawfully, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, a part of DHS, takes enforcement action – prioritizing the removal of individuals who present the most significant threats to public safety as determined by the severity of their crime, their criminal history and other factors.
Right now, the technology that makes this information-sharing between the FBI and the DHS possible has been activated in more than 1,200 state and local law enforcement jurisdictions in 42 states. We anticipate total activation by 2013.
To date, Secure Communities has led to the removal of more than 72,000 illegal immigrants convicted of crimes, including more than 26,000 convicted of major violent offenses like murder, rape and the sexual abuse of children. Between October 2008 and October 2010, Secure Communities resulted in a 71 percent increase in the number of convicted criminals removed from our country. A number of these cases have come from San Francisco.
Deval Patrick, once again today, lied to the press about what Massachusetts does regarding illegal immigration. Has he ever told the truth?
