      Cuomo To Pull New York Out Of Secure Communities Program
      By: NY1 News  

      Governor Andrew Cuomo will at least temporarily pull New York out of the federal Secure Communities program pending a review of the controversial policy, NY1 learned Tuesday.

      Cuomo's announcement is expected to come this week. The governor has been under pressure by some elected officials and civil libertarians to suspend participation in the program, which federal officials say is designed to improve public safety by identifying undocumented immigrants who may then face deportation.

      Critics say the program oversteps boundaries, unfairly targets innocent people and does not achieve its goals.
