Gov. Patrick calls illegal alien ID check ‘publicity stunt’
Boston Herald ^ | September 27, 2011 | Natalie Sherman

Posted on 09/27/2011 11:37:31 AM PDT by moonshinner_09

A program that requires local police to run fingerprints of anybody arrested through a federal immigration database is “a publicity stunt,” Gov. Deval Patrick said today.

Federal authorities already have access to the information through the FBI, which receives fingerprints from Massachusetts, Patrick said on WTKK (96.9 FM) Boston Talks Jim & Margery today

Since DHS doesn’t actually do anything useful with the info, he may be right this time.

Patriot Ledger
Marshfield slaying suspect likely here illegally

Sep 27, 2011 @ 06:50 AM
Authorities say a man, who was identified as Marcelo Almeida, 41, on a passport, stabbed Patricia Fernanda Teixera Frois, his 24-year-old girlfriend, multiple times on Monday morning in Building 1 in the Village at Marshfield apartment complex. The federal agency in charge of immigration has no record that the man entered the U.S. legally, the Plymouth County district attorney’s office said Monday night.

Everyone should be racially profiled, randomly checked for valid citizenship status and otherwise scrutinized just as we are when boarding a plane at the airport.

It is a Federal crime to be in America illegally, and a National Database would greatly enhance the ability of federal official to remove the illegal aliens from our soil.

We are a cream-puff Nation with cream-puff laws, which are not enforced by cream-puff officials. Time to change that starting with the Guv.’s State.

BTW, the Guv. sounds like a cream-puff too.

So this Governor does not want the Police to enforce the laws?
Then he should be removed from office.

Not gonna happen, in fact he was re-elected for a second term cuz most of the idiots in this state think he's just so damn good at his job. This IS MA so it's to be expected that he would have no interest in enforcing laws related to illegals.

As a MA resident, I have to say that it is infuriating living under Deval Patrick’s liberal soft on crime mentality. Illegal aliens are committing horrible crimes left and right (murders, vehicular homicide) and all Deval can say is: “it is not my responsibility”.

It has been so infuriating that I made a video capturing my thoughts: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4AmMukjAKIs

Nor does he want to do anything that would make it harder for anyone to vote. Who is "anyone"?
Nor does he want to have MA join Secure Communities because it would cause fear among the illegals. So what!?

This walking, talking piece of human excrement needs to be removed...one way or another.

I HATE THIS FRAKKIN' STATE!

Howie Carr had an audio clip on his show yesterday of Vermont's Democrat (of course) governor basically admitting that it is state policy for the police to ignore immigration enforcement, because their economy "depends" on illegal migrant workers. A great number of unemployed Vermonters might beg to differ.

Same crap here in NH, where our Democrat (again, of course) governor and his AG throw up their hands and refuse to round up the gang members that have invaded parts of the southern tier of this state.

All I ask is that one law...ONE LAW...be enforced.

Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification MUST be filled out by any employer hiring ANYONE.

The Federal Government does not ask for this form to be forwarded with any other paperwork anymore. They used to. I was in charge of hiring many years ago and there were penalties from INS for non-compliance. They don't care anymore!

I say, enforce this requirement and hand out VERY stiff penalties to employers who fail to do this. That will stop a LOT of this BS right away.

You ask “who is anyone?” “Anyone” is a person who has NO legal right to be casting a vote. They are an important, possibly critical, part of his base.
In the same way, he is totally unwilling to follow ANY programs designed to stop the killing and maiming of our CITIZENS.
WE live in a nice town that has seen a number of our citizens killed violently. ALL by “anyone”.

If your economy depends on Illegal Alien workers then you don’t have an economy. You know, the South once had a similar excuse for a “peculiar institution”. Otherwise Scarlet would lose Tara.

Actually, no. We are a Nation of free men and women who can go for a walk without our papers. We should not be subject to random ID checks, drunk checks, or citizenship checks.

In contrast, when someone is arrested, it’s appropriate to check everything you can find on them. And with the World Court telling us that we have to contact embassies for aliens, it’s only appropriate to check citizenship.

Far better than the necessity to remove aliens from out cities, or at least with an equal priority, we should be preventing their entry.

Has anyone ever checked whether Gov. Deval Patrick is not an illegal alien?

For the citizens of MA, it might be best to strip him to his undies, put him in a large box, and ship him to Greenland so he could experience Global Warming first hand.
