(NECN) - Should fingerprints from crime suspects be turned over to the FBI from local law enforcement?

That is the issue at the heart of the proposed Secure Communities program.

The debate was dialed up a notch on Monday, when Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren said the program should be delayed because it builds barriers between police and immigrant communities.

Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson, who is for Secure Communities, and Sarang Sekhavat from MIRA, the Massachusetts Immigrant and Refugee Advocacy Coalition, joined "The Morning Show" to discuss the issue.

Watch the attached video to catch the entire discussion.
