From the Daily News:
Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials told the NYPD and other local police departments in New York that the controversial Secure Communities program will be activated Tuesday across the state.
The program is already running — feeding fingerprint information from local police to Homeland Security through the FBI — in Westchester, Nassau and Suffolk counties.
Last June, Cuomo unsuccessfully tried to pull New York from the program, which the feds initially characterized as voluntary.
Homeland Security officials now say it is mandatory.
ICE calls Secure Communities their “single most valuable tool” to find and deport dangerous criminals.
