The D.C. Council unanimously passed emergency legislation to limit the federal immigration program known as Secure Communities, which went into effect Tuesday in the District. Secure Communities requires that local law enforcement share fingerprints with federal immigration authorities and detain individuals if asked to do so. Immigration advocates applauded the Council's move, while some in law enforcement say it will make the streets less safe.
Former state Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli and the ACLU are supporting legislation that would limit the ability of law-enforcement and regulatory agencies to collect information and build databases without a warrant.
