US immigration initiative stirs controversy

Programme which calls for deportation of illegals even for minor offences, faces opposition.

    A federal immigration initiative in the US, known as the Secure Communities Programme, has stirred controversy.

    The programme means that any illegal immigrant who commits an offence, however minor, should be proposed for deportation.

    But local officials in some states are refusing to co-operate with the initiative.
