Governorís 2nd Term To Focus On Helping Illegal Immigrants (MA)
Judicial Watch ^ | November 17, 2010

The newly reelected governor who created a special council to help illegal immigrants integrate into society promises to spend his second term pushing for measures to benefit undocumented aliens in his state. Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick, former Clinton Administration official, assured open borders advocates this week that he’ll advance an ambitious agenda launched during his first term to assist illegal aliens...

In all, the governor’s council offered 131 ideas aimed at integrating immigrants and refugees into the civic and economic life of the Commonwealth...Among the key recommendations is granting illegal immigrants drivers’ licenses and discounted in-state-tuition at public colleges and universities even though the Massachusetts legislature solidly rejected the tuition measure a few years ago. Regardless, Deval is committed to implementing his immigration panel’s recommendations before his second term expires.

“Now, as we stand on the threshold of another four years, I want to commit to you that we will implement this report in its entirety, working with you over the next several years,’’ Patrick said...

Immediately upon taking office in 2007, Deval, who was in charge of civil rights in Bill Clinton’s Justice Department, killed a policy that allowed state troopers to detain undocumented aliens. The governor has repeatedly come under fire for his other leftwing policies, including spending $430,000 to give welfare recipients free cars ...

Last year Deval’s lawyer wife accused the state’s largest newspaper of racism for describing her husband’s pricey luxury sedan as “tricked out.” The article pointed out that the taxpayer-financed vehicle, a Cadillac DeVille, was a departure from the less expensive model used by Deval’s predecessor. ...

These people are determined.

I'm afraid it'll take something louder than an election to convince em to listen to us.

So we pay for their health care (RomneyCare), provide them EBT cards (fully charged debit cards with NO restrictions) via welfare, let them off with slaps on the wrist for driving without a license and now in-state tuition.

Right is wrong, wrong is right.

This guy was reelected with 48% of the vote and, as predicted, is going to go to the left of Pelosi. Thanks, Tim Cahill, you bastard.

No big deal. It is pretty common for politicians to pay back the voters that got them elected..........
