RI Governor 2010 – Immigration Reference Chart
Based on Andrew’s reporting as well as the ProJo and the GoLocalProv accounts, here is a quick reference chart detailing the 2010 RI Gubonatorial candidates’ stance on four key Immigration related issues: Governor Carcieri’s 2008 Executive Order, E-Verify, in-state college tuition for the illegal/undocumented, and the Arizona Immigration law.
|Carcieri Exec order||Against||Against||Against||Approve||Qualified||Qualified||Approve|
* Giroux – Not ready for an in-state tuition program, though implies eventual support.
** Block – Would tweak the language of the executive order to ensure no racial profiling. Approves of in-state tuition for illegal immigrants who are in the process of becoming legal.
***Robitaille – Supports Executive Order, but would use the Florida secure communities model instead of 287(g). Would consider some components of AZ law for RI, but states are different.
