Border agents slam NY Gov. Cuomo's policies...NY Governor Andrew Cuomo decided to protect illegal aliens in his close-to-bankrupt state by not participating in a federal program (Secure Communities) to find criminal aliens in the U.S.. According to Border Patrol agents in AZ, Cuomo has stopped NY's participation in a fingerprint program designed to identify illegal aliens. He cited its "impact on...immigrant communities." The members of the National Border Patrol Council Local 2544 called this move by Cuomo "stupid," on their web site.
