The city of Baltimore joined the federal Secure Communities program this week.

Secure Communities and the Way Forward

Secure Communities and the Way Forward

As President Obama follows through on his earlier promises of amnesty by fiat, the Internet is swirling with speculation as to motives, consequences, and potential political fallout.
