    Romney signs agreement allowing State Police to detain illegals

    BOSTON Massachusetts state troopers could soon be able to detain illegal immigrants.
    Governor Romney signed an agreement with federal authorities today that allows troopers to hold undocumented immigrants they encounter over the course of their normal duties.

    An initial group of 30 troopers will receive five weeks of specialized training next year.

    Romney says in a statement the agreement will help deal with the "illegal immigration problem."

    The future of the agreement is in doubt, however.

    The Republican governor is leaving office on January fourth and is a potential 2008 presidential nomination.

    Democratic governor-elect Deval Patrick has said he opposes placing the additional burden on the troopers.

    Gov. elect Deval Patrick

    Contact Gov. elect Deval Patrick and tell him to fully support state troopers helping to enforce immigration laws.

    Here's his recent quote -
    "I'm going to investigate what power I have," the governor-elect told reporters last week. "You know that I think it's a bad idea for state troopers to be involved in immigration enforcement. They have enough to do as it is, and I said that consistently."
