MA Rejects Secure Communities as Flawed, Unworkable Program

AFSC, its partners and other advocates commend Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick for refusing to sign a state-wide agreement with the federal government to participate in a flawed, anti-immigrant federal program that has been denounced by the immigrant rights movement and resisted strongly by governors, state and local elected officials and law-enforcement representatives nationwide.
