Somerville (Ma) to relax immigration enforcement
http://bostonherald.com/ ^ | 05/21/2014 | Chris Cassidy, O'Ryan Johnson

Posted on 05/21/2014 4:57:25 AM PDT by massmike

Starting tomorrow, it’s no longer illegal to be illegal in Somerville, according to Mayor Joseph A. Curtatone, who is slated to sign an executive order Thursday barring his cops from holding undocumented aliens in jail simply for immigration violations — an unprecedented move, even in the Bay State, though other communities may quickly follow suit.

“We need to stop villainizing these people and start solving the problem,” Curtatone told the Herald yesterday. “Massachusetts holds itself out as a progressive state. We should lead the way. We hold ourselves out as a progressive community that believes in fairness and doing the right thing. This is morally the right thing to do.”

Somerville — which made national headlines in 2012 for banning the word “illegal” in reference to illegal immigrants — would be the first community in Massachusetts to join the so-called Trust Act movement, a national push to relax immigration enforcement.

Police would only comply with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement detainers to hold illegals if they had a criminal warrant or if police had a non-immigration-related legal purpose, Curtatone plans to announce today at a press conference.

Unemployment rate is 6.3 percent officially.

Much higher in fact.

Yet our establishment wants to ever-more coddle illegal immigrants.

Americans need jobs. For Americans. Stop coddling illegals.

It’s nice that a city can so flagrantly violate FEDERAL laws. Of course, that only applies if they’re left-wing. Let’s see a Conservative locale try picking and choosing which laws to obey and not to.

If the illegal immigrant is carrying an "undocumented" hand gun with a suppressor, will Somerville ignore state/federal gun laws too??

Do illegal immigrants get to drive in Somerville without a license/insurance, too?

Some have claimed - falsely - that Romney gave free healthcare to illegals. That is not true.

You are claiming that the governor of MA designated several sanctuary cities? Legally, how could an officer of a state do that to a city? Do you have a source? Book of Mormon?

There are,sadly,many,many here on FR who believe,among other things,that Romney is Satan's evil twin.These people would be correct to believe that the majority...the *large* majority...of Massachusetts politicians of recent times are filthy,despicable pieces of excrement.I give you Kennedy,Warren,Kerry and Patrick as just a few examples of such filth.But Romney,as very imperfect as he was,doesn't qualify.These people,most of whom have never even set foot in Massachusetts,think they know how "Romneycare" came about...just to give one example.But they don't,in reality,have the first blessed clue.

The WBUR tweet links to an article written by "Laura Rótolo, staff counsel and community advocate for the ACLU of Massachusetts":

>>The only change to Secure Communities that would make a real difference would be to end the program. Anything short of that will perpetuate the blurring of lines between local and federal agencies, undermine community trust in law enforcement and undermine public safety. Cities and counties in Massachusetts should follow Somerville’s example. Some are already considering similar policies.

Nana - You seem to really hate Romney. Is it just Romney or all Mormons? Do you feel better when you tell out and out lies about him? It’s not healthy and it’s not Christian.

Re Massachusetts laws and politics - you have no idea what you’re talking about.

The governor - especially a Republican one - has little power to fight the legislature that is overwhelmingly Democratic.

If you want to blame anybody, blame Maggie Marshall, an import from South Africa. The governor has no control over either the legislature or the supreme court of the commonwealth.

Your allegations would be more compelling if they were factually based.

The Massachusetts Governor is the most powerful governor in the nation.

Romney’s radical leftism is what guided him on gay marriage, he was also a supporter of homosexuality the military, and homosexual Scout leaders, it is why he punished the Scouts during the Winter Olympics in 2002.

Mitt is famous for his powerful support for the homosexual agenda.

So you're tacitly admitting that you know nothing about this state's politics.And yet you're part of the "I'd rather see Obama in the WH than Romney" crowd.Now that you've made this admission please tell me why I shouldn't consider your opinions regarding Romney as nothing more than gaseous emissions in the wind.Oh,and BTW,as a *lifelong* resident of this state I can assure you that the opinion you have of Romney *can* be justifiably applied to 99% of this filthy state's office holders over the last 20 (or more) years.Some of those that make up that 99% are ones you've heard of but many are not.But your obsession with Romney makes me wonder if you're the type who says "well,I was mugged by a (insert racial/ethnic/religious minority here) so they must *all* be pigs".

And on one of the specific topics you seem to dwell on,Romney-wise...you *still* haven't told us who Margaret Marshall is.

Ya need more kid ???

OKie doke...

Lets go back to a time when nobody was threatening your sensitive coardly boy Willard ..

1992 Debate for US Senate..no Maggie no anybody..

Just Willard and his FReedom to speak microphone..

opposite Ted Kennedy..

So what did your boy Willard say at that seemly maybe sole time he was free to voice his own precious to him opinion ???

Abortion..He declared Roe V Wade “the law of the law” sancosant..untouchable..He would not attempt to overturn the law...”a woman’s right”..Willard even touched his cold empty heart and said he “sustained” the law..Folks when a Mormon says that it don’t come any more important...he really really really means it.. Even Teddy was beaten in that part of the debate..

(Willards pagan unbiblical unchristian religion was introduced into the conversation by you Janie)

Homosexual issues...Homosexual leaders in the Boys Scouts..Willard was all for it...

and so on...

Your boy Willard was not a wee lil boy clinging to your skirts at that time... He was a grown idiot over 40 years old..

Since then and during times when he also was not governor of a state (BTW the ONLY time he was ever in office and had any type of experience)

He has called for abortions of babies conceived by rape, incest, and when the health of the pregnant femalewith be adversely affected...oh golly gosh the reasoning behind Roe V Wade..

and for the homosexuals...

homosexuals in the military,

homosexuals as leaders of the Boy Scouts

homosexuals as adoptive parents because as your boy Willard said “They are in a loving relationship”

oh cant you feel the love ???

is that the of love you cant find in me ???

Willards kind ???

I would hope so...

I don’t love the murder of babies...

and I don’t love the idea of degenerate sex...

nor do I love those who delight in such evil...

And here's another quiz for ya...it's multiple choice so you have a chance of being correct even if you don't look it up:

Over the last 10+ years the Rat Party has held,approximately,what percentage of the seats in the state legislature (House and Senate):

25%

33%

55%

80%

90%

I have not lived in MA, but I have been there and studied their politics for years (as it is a premier example of when the left-wing takes over a state GOP and the disaster that ensues).

GSC, Margaret Marshall is the South Africa born infamous ultra-leftist former Chief Justice of the SJC, a Weld/Cellucci appointee. The one who made up out of whole cloth the “right” to “gay marriage.” An abomination if there ever was one.

Gay marriage and polygamy in the USA began with the

IMPOSED his demand against the Mass. Constitution.

Romney is the author of RomneyCARE/ObamaCARE, conservative

The issue is ROMNEYS IMPROPER EXECUTIVE AUTHORITY
where he thinks as a divine carpetbagger and imposer
of polygamy and gay marriage and RomneyCARE/ObamaCARE
that he is smarter and better than the Constitution.

He is not. Romney has destroyed America with Soros
(his partner in jetBlue) and Obama (his true partner).
