This Means It’s Working
Governor Carcieri’s executive order is already proving to be a success:
Rhode Island’s decision to order State Police and other state agencies to help enforce federal immigration law is jarring border cities in Massachusetts, where illegal immigrants say they are now afraid to enter the Ocean State.
If they’re that reluctant to cross a state border (with habitual experience of the ease of travel from state to state), imagine how much less likely they’d be to make a beeline to our state across a national border. Those who’ve opposed attempts to control illegal immigration on the grounds that it is impossible ought to take note.
