    PA-Immigrant groups decry fingerprint sharing policy

    Posted on Fri, Aug. 21, 2009


    Immigrant groups decry fingerprint sharing policy



    PHILADELPHIA - Some lawmakers in Philadelphia are joining immigrant advocacy groups in opposition of a new policy where city police turn over to federal authorities the fingerprints of immigrants who are arrested.

    The "Secure Communities" program allows local authorities access to federal criminal and immigration records when they take suspects' fingerprints during the booking process.

    Federal immigration officials say the goal is to identify criminals for deportation.

    The Pennsylvania Immigration Citizenship Coalition say the program will make it more likely that immigrants who witness crimes will refuse to cooperate with police.

    Several members of Philadelphia City Council says the program promotes fear of police in immigrant communities.

    This is one of the stupidest outcries I have heard of in my life. What, are cops only allowed to share info about Americans, but the true lawbreakers, the illegals, get a pass?

    Who cares what the illegals want?

    Illegals need to get the H out of our country and stop wasting our time and money.

    Of course they would opposed that policy. It would identify them as criminals and illegals and could possibly result in deportation. I wish my town would do the same. I believe the City of Green Bay fingerprints anyone who cannot provide a valid driver's license when stopped for a traffic offense - love it.

    Why? So illegal immigrants can keep dodging the law. There could be serial rapists, murderers, perverts, burglers, etc living freely in our neighborhoods because no one knows their status after being arrested. They have been known to have multiple ID's so fingerprinting might be a great tool to identify them.

    If they are getting arrested, they already don't cooperate with police.
