On November 20, 2014, President Obama announced the "end" of the much reviled Secure Communities (SComm) program. In its place, DHS created the "Priority Enforcement Program" or PEP. PEP works exactly the same way as Secure Communities. It tracks fingerprints and helps ICE agents issue detainers and retrieve people from local jails. This advisory explains the PEP forms and operations.
