AUGUSTA, Maine In one of his first official acts, Gov. Paul LePage on Thursday issued an order allowing officials in state agencies to question people with whom they come into contact about their immigration status, infuriating civil libertarians.

Maine’s new governor(Tea Party backed)allows state to question immigration status of Massachusetts drivers.
liberals ARE crazy;they just threw a fit on hearing laws might be used other than in furthering the socialist agenda.
I don’t think LePage would be good for, say, a Texas, but this is an awesome development for Maine, especially considering what the Republican Party has been under Snowe and Collins.
Will O-Bozo take Maine to Court like he did Arizona?
During the campaign Paul said he would be happy to tell obama to’go to hell’.
It was a great inaugural and a great reception.
The reign of terror begins in Maine; liberals contort their faces in pain.
We all have a responsibility to ensure that the most vulnerable among us dont freeze to death, dont starve to death or die of treatable disease this winter, said Bellows. It doesnt matter where you were born. Were all human and were responsible for one another.
To me they are pushing their own agenda.Try saying this in Mexico and they will laugh you right out of town. This is why they have Churches to cover, were all human and were responsible for one another, this is a good Chruch sermon.All the illegals, supporters, should pool all their money together and pay their own fare. Instead of becoming a burden on society
Great news for Maine. If it helps get criminal illegal immigrants out of jobs Americans need and off services meant to help those legally here, I’m all for it.
THIS IS A GREAT DAY FOR MAINE.
A GOVERNOR WITH COMMON SENSE.
Up there it is probably as much about Canadian as it is about Latino illegal immigrants.
Not so. Maine is awash with illegals and Somali Muslim "refugees," packed in by an unholy alliance of Catholic(!?!) Charities, ex-Governor Baldacci, and the Feds. There are fewer people in Maine (about a million on a good day) than in other states, so it hurts more.
Maine has developed a tax situation that is hostile to economic development and is actually at a Mississippi-like poverty level. Has been poor for decades. No jobs.
BTW, I personally consider immigrants from MA and NY to be "illegals." Seems they cannot wait to recreate the failing states from which they escaped.
It’s almost like the overtaxed liberal northerners, who move south, and try to make things just as taxed as where they came from..seems to me they should just stay put.
Now, we can tell Bellows not to worry about the illegals being warm, because I hear Mexico is nice this time of year.
Baldacci has loaded every state agency with far-left, sexually ambiguous liberal ani from away who will torpedo any attempt at a return to efficient government. A good start would be to disband any agency that has Green, Environment, Environmental, Global Warming, in or close to its title and stop funding any "Climate Change" projects. Save a bundle on Day 1 and send these people back to their home states.
It is even worse in DC, where Congressional staffs are overwhelmingly liberal MFs who have been there for years. I can name you big tine "Republicans" whose offices are headed by and staffed by ....Democrats.
Then of course, there is the all-powerful bureaucracy. Left-wing all the way. WTF do we do about that?
Government employment and support is the dirty little secret of self-funded Democrat perpetuation.
