Commentary and Opinions

Washington, DC, Aug. 4 - In an effort to further ensure that most immigration law violators, including many criminal aliens, are allowed to remain in the United States, Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Jeh Johnson scrapped the effective Secure Communities Program last November. In its place, DHS is implementing the Priority Enforcement Program (PEP), which will limit the identification and removal of criminal aliens to those who meet the Obama administration's own narrowly defined priorities for removal.
Washington, July 21 - Since the tragic murder of Kathryn Steinle in San Francisco this month, there has been a flood of criticism leveled against state and city policies that limit local involvement in immigration enforcement and questions raised about whether the federal government is doing enough to enforce the immigration laws. Congress has scheduled two hearings this week to explore these issues, and we share legislators’ desire to find solutions.
Teaneck, NJ, July 14 – Multi-factor authentication – a security protection required by US government standards – could have prevented the recent Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and Office of Personnel Management (OPM) security breaches that have exposed the personal information of millions of citizens to hackers, spies and cyber-criminals. The Federal government has been encouraging its agencies to use multi-factor authentication since November 2009, when it published the FICAM (Federal Identity and Access Management) Roadmap and Implementation Guidance.
