Secure Communities: January 2012 Archives

I was going to write, today, about the amazing courage of Cook County Board President, Toni Preckwinkle. The Obama administration, led by John Morton of ICE, is waging an all out propaganda war on Cook County and local pro-migrant elected officials like Toni Preckwinkle are standing strong against the harmful program that is S-COMM. However, it appears the real moment of courage will happen when the Cook County Board takes a vote, possibly as early as today. I encourage everyone to sign this petition to defend Cook County, sent out by the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights (ICIRR) an organization that also deserves to be commended for it's work against S-COMM.

Preckwinkle's messaging is pitch perfect because it's the truth. It's an outrage whenever someone is killed by a drunk driver, but that doesn't mean that the U.S. justice system should be skirted and that there should be a different set of laws for migrants and citizens. S-COMM is the most dangerous program facing migrant communities, today, and if migrant communities are put in danger, we're all put in danger.

The battle against S-COMM is a hard battle to fight.
