Rhode Island State police withdraw from partnership with Immigration

January 7, 2011 § Leave a comment

As ordered by Governor Chafee, the Rhode Island State Police withdrew Thursday from a controversial federal program that cross-designated four troopers as immigration agents of limited authority. Chafee sent his directive to state police Supt. Brendan P. Doherty on Wednesday, after rescinding former Gov. Donald L. Carcieri’s 2008 executive order cracking down on illegal immigration, as one of his first acts in office. Chafee called the order “an agent of divisiveness, incivility and distrust among the state’s citizens.” Doherty notified U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement that he was terminating the agreement by certified letter on Thursday.
