TX: SB9 advances (Secure Communities Program)

TX: SB9 advances (Secure Communities Program)...Sen. Tommy Williams(R) said by expanding Secure Communities to all law enforcement agencies — every Texas county takes part in the program but some municipalities don't — SB9 closes a loophole that keeps some people arrested for Class C misdemeanors from being entered into the Secure Communities database... Secure Communities checks the fingerprints of those arrested against an ICE database. It has been the target of criticism from some who say the program, designed to deport violent criminals, has led to the deportation of people convicted of minor crimes.
