Homeland Security deletes immigration enforcement success stories from website

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano is not a fan of a big part of the 287(g) program, which allows state and local police to enforce federal immigration laws — but until Thursday her department’s website didn’t get that message.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the part of her agency that handles the 287(g) agreements with states and localities, had a Web page dedicated to success stories from the program, pointing to many of the dangerous criminal aliens who had been taken off the streets after local authorities nabbed them for another offense.

But after Rep. Bob Goodlatte, Virginia Republican, pointed out the contradiction during a House Judiciary Committee hearing Thursday, Ms. Napolitano wasted little time in removing it.

“I would tell the people who are working on the website, take it down,” she said during the hearing. And even before the hearing gaveled to a close, the page was gone.

The 287(g) program has two parts: task-force agreements, which empower state and local police to process suspects for immigration violations, and the jail model, which only gets local authorities involved after someone has been booked into a jail or prison.

Nappy took it off website because she and her boss don't want the public to know the 287(g) program works.
