Make the Road Praises Cuomo
June 1st, 2011

Make the Road New York has released a statement congratulating Gov. Andrew Cuomo from suspending New York’s participation in the Secure Communities program:

“We applaud Governor Cuomo for his courageous leadership to protect all New Yorkers from the consequences of a misguided immigration enforcement strategy. Secure Communities erodes trust between local government and immigrant communities because community members perceive that local police are funneling immigrants into a broken immigration system. Immigrants, then, are less likely to report crimes, to seek needed services or toserve as witnesses,” said Javier H. Valds, Deputy Director of Make the Road New York. “We look forward to continuing to work with the Governor to protect and improve the immigrant community’s relationship with local law enforcement in order to create a stronger and safer New York.”
