The Federal - Local Nexus in Immigration Enforcement Policy An Evaluation of the Secure Communities Program
By Dongjae Jung


I dedicate my work and give special thanks to TRAC at Syracuse University. As a massive data-gathering research institute, TRAC and its co-director Susan Long accepted my TRAC Fellowship and generously gave me an opportunity to access public data from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement on immigration detainer issuances received through Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests. Without TRACís support, I could not have completed this dissertation project. This dissertation project also could never have been completed without generous public data sharing from the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) at Syracuse University. After accepting me as a TRAC Fellow, TRAC provided me with invaluable immigration enforcement data covering more than 24 months which were obtained from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) via Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests. I specifically appreciate TRAC's co-director Susan Long for her consideration and technical assistance in helping me to access immigration enforcement-related data from TRAC.........[Citing TRAC research].
