Republican gubernatorial candidate Charlie Baker said today that he didn't blame Arizona for enacting a law cracking down on illegal immigrants that has sparked heated controversy nationwide.
"Arizona is a border state, living with the failure of the federal government to do the job of securing their border. I don't blame them for taking this issue on directly. I don't feel the federal government left them with much choice," Baker said in a live chat on boston.com.
He also expressed support for a crackdown on illegal immigration passed by the Massachusetts Senate as part of the state budget. Tougher provisions in the Senate bill were eventually left out in the version approved by a House-Senate conference committee and then signed into law by Democratic Governor Deval Patrick.

Weak sister. Probably not voting for anyone for Gov. this year.
Baker “doesn’t BLAME” Arizona? Boy. He sounds like a real stand up, steel-spined kind of guy!! A typical Mass. RINO I’d bet, just like Brown.
