    Sheriffs want ‘secure’ effort for state ASAP


    While all states will be required to begin the Secure Communities program by 2013, some officials think 2013 is two years too late and are pushing for the program — or at least aspects of the federal information-sharing network — to be implemented now.

    [quote][b]“Under Secure Communities and presently, every fingerprint rolled, whether it’s an American citizen, whether the person’s Caucasian, black, Latino, Asian, female, male, every print goes and goes down through the computer. So how can you profile if everybody is being treated the same?
