Secure communities; about time

Secure communities; about time

To the Editor:

I woke up to the best news in years on May 8.

“Feds mandate Secure Communities in Massachusetts.”

“Federal immigration officials will activate the controversial Secure Communities program statewide in Massachusetts on May 15, despite strong opposition from Gov. Deval Patrick and advocacy groups.”

Last summer, when Senator Scott Brown came here, I asked him, “Martha’s Vineyard is a sanctuary Island, and Massachusetts is a sanctuary state for illegal aliens who are taking our jobs and draining our resources. When do you think this will finally end?”

Well, now I know. May 15, 2012.
