    Rhode Island lawmaker files bill that follows Arizona immigration law | Rhode Island news | projo.com | The Providence Journal

    There isn't much on the internet yet but if it was on local radio I'm sure the news stations will be picking it up tonight or tommorrow and then it will be everywhere.

    Rhode Island is not thought of as overly conservative either so that makes it more interesting.

    Well that is because Democrat or Republican there are many people who still believe in the separation of powers between the FED and the States. Even if Obams does not.

    Reasonable People, even those who want open borders, can still be opposed to the court ruling against Arizona. On the grounds that they do not think it usurps any federal power, and that the states are well with in their rights to try and catch illegals in their states.

    And I'm glad to see some dems standing up for it for a change. It has been too many decades that the dems have appeared to not care but like you said it shouldn't be a Dem/Rep issue.

    You seem to be a bit confused. The constitution gives the feds the power to control immigration not the states. That is Obama's position. It would seem to me that anyone who supported separation of powers between the feds and states ala the constitution, would have the same stand. Granted, the feds have done a piss poor job on immigration, there is nothing in the constitution that says if the feds screw it up, the power to regulate it goes to the states.

    According to the guy you're praising, Obama had nothing to do with it. It was California and other states saying they would boycott AZ that made him do it.
