Salvador Licea is an undocumented immigrant who has lived in Texas for most of his life. Recently, he was pulled over for a minor traffic violation and subsequently arrested for having an expired license. Although  nothing on his record fits the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) description of a "dangerous, criminal alien," his finger prints were taken as part of the Secure Communities Program, and he now faces deportation. Later he was told that he was pulled over because his age and skin color fit the description of a drug lord or gang banger.
