I had warned that the new Department of Homeland Security campaign, Secure Communities, was deceitful, as it was just a rebranding of the current DHS policy of concentrating on criminal illegal aliens, and letting the rest of them go. http://federaleagent86.blogspot.com/2009/05/real-meaning-behind-new-immigration.html
I have again been confirmed in my review. http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/local/Expansion-of-immigration-enforcement-could-affect-Prince-William-crackdown-48200917.html

Here are the money quotes: '"The two programs complement each other and … have different implementations,” said ICE spokesman Richard Rocha.Prince William Board of Supervisors Chairman Corey Stewart, R-at Large, said he did not believe the two were redundant, arguing that the 287(g) program allowed county police officers to participate in the deportation process.
“Just because a community identifies an illegal immigrant” doesn’t mean the person will get deported, he said.'
"ICE focuses on the most dangerous criminal aliens, those who have been convicted or are charged with an offense including national security, homicide, kidnapping, assault, robbery, sex and narcotics crimes that carry a sentence of greater than one year."
Here we have, in a nutshell, the Bush policy of ignoring most illegal aliens and concentrating on criminal illegal aliens confirmed.
