Mid-Hudson News: Ball asks governor to reconsider move to suspend detailed scrutiny of suspects

June 7 - State Senator Gregory Ball (R-Patterson) urged Governor Cuomo to reconsider his decision to suspend New York’s participation in the federal Secure Communities Program. The initiative, which would be left up to localities to decide if they want to participate, would allow for fingerprint checks of any arrested person to be matched against a federal database to determine if a person has also committed an immigration related offense.
