    R.I. governor to sign executive order related to immigration

    R.I. governor to sign executive order related to immigration
    March 26, 2008

    PROVIDENCE, R.I.—Gov. Don Carcieri plans to sign an executive order Thursday to help the state deal with illegal immigration, his office said Wednesday evening.

    His office did not immediately release details of the order, but his spokeswoman, Barbara Trainor, said it would cover "several bases."

    A written statement from Carcieri's office said there is a growing number of illegal immigrants, and the federal government is not taking action. It said the Republican governor will also endorse legislation that has been introduced in the Democratic-dominated General Assembly that will accomplish the same goal.

    A Carcieri staffer recently told Rep. Jon Brien that the governor planned to sign an executive order forcing state agencies and contractors to verify the legal status of their workers, Brien said. The Democratic lawmaker had asked Carcieri to support a bill requiring private employers to do the same.

    "By cracking down on the employer, you're basically saying if you want to work in Rhode Island, that's fine. But you have to do it legally," Brien said.

    Brien's proposal is one among many introduced by Rhode Island lawmakers this year that deal with illegal immigration. One would make it a crime for state workers to issue state ID cards to illegal immigrants; kick illegal immigrants off public assistance programs; make it illegal to transport or harbor illegal immigrants; and require law enforcement to notify federal authorities any time they arrest a suspected illegal immigrant.

    State police officials said they planned to attend Carcieri's news conference.

    Carcieri has already proposed cutting immigrant children, be they legal or illegal, from a state-subsidized health care plan. He has also drawn fire from some immigrants rights groups for cutting translators from the state payroll.

    His office said a recent report showed anywhere from 20,000 to 40,000 illegal immigrants live in the Ocean State. Carcieri has said in the past that the state, in the midst of a $561 million budget crisis, can't afford and shouldn't have to pay for people who break the law.

    Hmmm, I wasn't aware of any developments in Rhode Island - this is a nice surprise. We'll have to keep an eye on this and get our ducks in a row to see if/when some organized support is warranted to help get anything good into law there. (I'll defer to W, Dixie, April, etc on that, stay tuned everyone...)

    Also, re:

    Wow, 40k in a state with 1million - luckily for us, those folks must have a low pain threshold or have a great deal of foresight and vision

    Well, I'm in an 'ocean state' and 20,000 to 40,000 is nothing. Maybe someone took a vacation here.

    Say Carcieri, how would you like to be Governor of California? We could use one that doesn't support the foreign invasion.

    Governor Signs Executive Order on Illegal Immigration

    Story Updated: Mar 27, 2008 at 4:20 PM EDT

    Governor Don Carcieri signed an executive order this afternoon, attempting to combat increasing illegal immigration to the state.
    The order forces prison officials and state police to identify illegal immigrants in state custody and also requires state agencies to penalize immigration violators.
    It would also force state agencies and contractors to verify the legal status of their workers.
    The governor's office says the feds aren't taking action against the growing number of illegal immigrants.

    Update: Carcieri order aims to enforce immigration law

    PROVIDENCE -- Governor Carcieri this afternoon signed an executive order he says will strengthen efforts to respond to illegal immigration problems, in part by expanding the authority of the State Police to help with identifying and arresting illegal immigrants.

    According to Carcieri's office, the order requires state agencies and vendors to verify the legal status of all employees and allows the state to inform people whose identity was stolen.

    It also directs the State Police and the Department of Corrections to work with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to ensure federal immigration law is enforced.

    “Today I am issuing an Executive Order which will enable a vast array of state government agencies to better address the issue of illegal immigration in Rhode Island,
