Recommendations: The ACLU urges that ICE:
* Halt entering into future (287g) agreements with states and localities;
* Cease recognition and compliance with 287(g) agreements currently in operation.
* Halt implementation of the Secure Communities plan which seeks to expand state and local law enforcement powers to enforce federal immigration laws.
 The file is at forums4.aclu.org/images/asset_upload_file292_34770.pdf and, while they probably say some things that would serve American interests at least about a few of the federal government's programs, they amply demonstrate that they have no use for our immigration laws.
