PHOENIX (CBS5) -
It's no secret. Phoenix is a community divided.
That's why the Phoenix Police Department along with the Consulate General of Mexico will debut a new program Friday designed to "keep the Mexican community informed."
According to a press release the goal is to strengthen trust as well as educate people about crime prevention, protection of victims, crime reporting and police community activities.
Carlos Garcia is with Puente Movement. The organization supports migrant justice and human rights. He told CBS 5 he doesn't believe the program will work.
"As long as they're enforcing immigration laws, our community is not going to trust the police. Our community is not naive. They know police departments are going to ask for documents. If someone can be deported for reporting a crime, they're not going to do it. If a family member can be deported if they have a scuffle, they're not going to report it," said Garcia.
Garcia believes the real issue of SB 1070 is being ignored.
"I think this is a ploy to build relationships with our community. But the fact that immigration is not being talked about is an insult. The Chief of Police knows our number one issue is immigration and all of the other issues are left behind as long as people are being deported," said Garcia.
CBS 5 reached out to Phoenix police for comment. A spokesperson was not available.
