After confrontation with ICE official, hundreds walk out of “inSecure Communities” forum in VA

On August 24, 2011, community members from Arlington, Va marched to a forum about the so-called “Secure Communities” program. After numerous speeches denouncing the program, two local immigrants with deportation orders confronted Marc Rapp, who oversees Secure Communities, demanding that he shut down the program all together. Hundreds then stood up and walked out of the meeting in defiance of the Task Force, which they called a “sham”.
