Episode Details

Original tape date: October 25, 2011.

First aired: November 7, 2011.

Moderator Bob Liff and a panel of experts debate the "Secure Communities" program in New York, as well as the City's legislative efforts to withdraw from the federal immigrant detainment program. Does "Secure Communities" make our City safer? Or does it serve as a racial profiling program, which deports innocent New Yorkers, breaking up innocent families of undocumented immigrants?
