CONCORD, N.H. --The police chief who made national news by charging an illegal immigrant with trespassing says he isn't done yet, despite a judge's ruling that his methods were unconstitutional.
New Ipswich Chief Garrett Chamberlain, who spoke at a celebration for the signing of the Constitution on Sunday, said he is investigating other methods to discourage illegal immigrants.
He said he is paying special attention to a law that fines businesses $1,000 for every day they employee such people. He said he also will ask the attorney general to set up a task force on the issue.
Last month, a judge dismissed trespassing charges against several illegal immigrants, disagreeing with Chamberlain and Hudson Chief Richard Gendron who used the law because they were frustrated by lax federal enforcement.
Chamberlain had started the tactic in April when Jorge Mora Ramirez's car broke down along a road. An officer found Ramirez with fake identification and a Mexican driver's license, police said.
Chamberlain has said this is a matter of national security.
Chamberlain was among the featured speakers for the New Hampshire Center for Constitutional Studies' annual celebration of the signing of the Constitution, along with Jim Gilchrist, the founder of the minuteman Project, and Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Colo., who has come under fire recently from some Hispanic groups for his calls for tougher immigration enforcement and a proposal to tax some of the money immigrants send outside U.S. borders.
Tancredo gave Chamberlain an award earlier this year, calling him a hero for charging an illegal immigrant with trespassing.

Could somebody please show me which article or amendment of the Consitution protects an illegal alien from being charged with trespassing on land he is not legally entitled to be on?
then this guy is more than a trespasser. He's driving without a license (and without insurance, of course!) and presented fraudulent ID. There oughta be some raps there to bust him.
Start arresting those driving without a license (or driving with those NC licenses) and for driving without insurance. Set up a roadblock right outside your local high school, and at least catch the teenagers who pose rather a deadly threat to safety.
You go, Chief!
"Mexican driver's license"
For the record, it is legal to drive in America with a foreign driver's license. Tourists do it every day.
That is the very reason why this BS of propositions around the country which would grant special driver's licenses for illegals are bogus. When if the truth be told, it is just a ruse to allow the illegals to go to the next counter and register to vote.
It's in the Constitution that was rewritten and hidden from the Peasants by the Judiciary in this country.
That's why they need to all be run out of town on a rail.
Garrett is no Neville!
God bless him.
There's a federal law empowering state and local law enforcement officials to arrest illegals for violating federal immigration law. Why can't he just arrest them on that basis instead of trying these work-arounds?
Protect our borders and coastlines from all foreign invaders!

Garrett Chamberlain for Congress!
Now there's the problem right there...Chief Chamberlain is going up against a gov't that doesn't think too much of a Constitution that was created to protect the people from the government...
Shocked I am. Just shocked at your cynicism. You mean to tell me a true blue American politician would accept the vote of an illegal alien? "Pshaw!" I say.
