Republican Gov. Paul LePage and Democrat Attorney General Janet Mills are at odds over the governor's directive to withhold aid to immigrants who can't prove they're living in the U.S. legally, and their dispute is causing confusion among Maine's cities and towns that dole out the aid.

LePage says federal law prohibits the state from providing aid to those living in the country illegally, and he has threatened to withhold funds for a municipal welfare program if cities defy that prohibition.

But Mills says the governor is overstepping his authority, and she has advised municipalities to ignore his wishes.

A house divided against itself cannot stand. Can’t remember where I read that.

Mills is a true leftist Dem plant. She has been carrying Dem water for a long time.

Absolutely sick that any benefit is given to an illegal alien, except a ride home.

Paul has all the authori8ty he needs, all he has to do is implement it and if Mills interferes, have her arrested. He is the Governor, she is nothing but a two bit political hack over her head and playing politics, it will be interesting to see if Paul has the manhood to pull this off.

Either way it get's more people thinking in terms of freedom from the Fed, secession on June 12, 2018.

We will be releasing the immigration sections of the proposed Constitution in July.

Not home just to Washington DC and then turned loose outside the White house.

So where's the problem? LePage must get tough.

The townships can spend any money they presently have in their welfare accounts ... and then that's it. The key to this is not on the Augusta level. It's at the local level. Your town spends money it shouldn't? Well then, that's where you do your bitchin'.

Let them South Portland Metrosexual MFs reach into their own pockets for a while. Probably enjoy it. For a while. The Democrats are backing some very dangerous people into a corner. Us.
