    MA. GOP sheriffs blast Warren’s stance on illegal aliens

    GOP sheriffs blast Warren’s stance on illegal aliens

    Republican Bay State sheriffs blasted Democratic senatorial hopeful Elizabeth Warren this afternoon, calling her “out of step with the people of Massachusetts” for opposing a controversial measure that would allow law enforcement to track illegal aliens.

    “She’s out of step with the people of Massachusetts and even her own political party,” said Worcester County Sheriff Lewis Evangelidis of Warren. Warren doesn’t support the Secure Communities Act, which would allow law enforcement officials to run the fingerprints of those arrested to check if they are here illegally.

    “The people of Massachusetts deserve a senator who is committed to public safety ... and that senator is Scott Brown,” said Evangelidis, noting that a recent stabbing in Milford might have been avoided had the program been in use.

    Brown is in a heated battle for re-election and will likely face Warren, a former consumer protection advocate with President Obama’s administration. The program became a wedge issue between the two early on as Brown offered strong support and Warren suggested it might hurt law enforcement because it would deter immigrants from cooperating with the police.

    Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson also slammed Warren for supporting amnesty and in-state tuition for illegal aliens, saying the Harvard Law professor looks at it “from an ivory tower” point of view.

    “Clearly she really is out of touch with the importance of public safety and how it impacts everything else in our society,” said Hodgson, who warned that, “We are going to see people who will end up being victimized or potentially killed ... because we won’t implement this program.”

    A spokeswoman for Warren said the candidate said she believes that the FBI and ICE should share information to target “dangerous and violent offenders.” Warren also wants to talk with law enforcement officials across the state to see what they believe an effective program would look like, the spokeswoman added.

    NO AMNESTY

    Don't reward the criminal actions of millions of illegal aliens by giving them citizenship.

    Personally I don't like Scott Brown much either... he's trying to give an "amnesty" to illegal Irish people and he's pushing HARD! The vote may come up this week... why should illegal Irish men and women get anything? They are just as illegal as Hispanics.

    While it is true that Brown is pushing for 10,500 worker visas for Irish immigrants, it is not true that he is attempting to give amnesty to Irish illegal immigrants. However, is partner, Shumer, does have amnesty written into his piece of legislation ...... Scott Brown does not.

    Brown does not support amnesty for the Irish that are here illegally.

    Immigration issue divides Brown, Warren

    March 13, 2012|By Stephanie Ebbert

    In his bid for reelection, Senator Scott Brown is calling for tighter immigration policy and chiding his leading Democratic challenger, Elizabeth Warren, for her seeming opposition to the federal enforcement program known as Secure Communities.

    But Warren refuses to be pinned down on the heated issue, calling for a more nuanced debate. Though in the past she has appeared to oppose the initiative, Warren would not declare a position last week, instead calling for further discussion with police about how the program has been working in other states.

    “Let’s see if we can make this absolutely clear: Everyone wants to see violent offenders off the streets. Everyone,’’ Warren said. “Any law that helps pull violent offenders off the street is good. But I follow the police and other officials who raised concerns that they don’t want to see a law that separates the police officers from the communities they serve. That doesn’t promote anyone’s safety.’’
