Conservative Legislators File Bill to Fix Immigration Loophole

Yesterday the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court ruled our state law does not permit officials to detain illegal immigrants solely at the request of federal immigration officials. This puts up a legal barrier to a long-running component of immigration enforcement, and may make us a de facto sanctuary state.

Representatives Jim Lyons, Marc Lombardo, Peter Durant, and Shaunna O’Connell announced they’ve filed legislation to fix this gap in the law, to ensure our law enforcement officers are able to work with federal immigration officials to keep our citizens safe by removing those here illegally. These courageous legislators need your help to spread the word. We ask that you email your legislators to support their efforts. Please, share this post and ask all your friends to also email their legislators in support of this legislation.

We’re fighting a number of battles against the radical left, and unlike our opponents on the left, we receive no funding from government. We need your support to continue to oppose sanctuary state policies that endanger all law-abiding citizens.  If you are able, please donate to the Coalition today–100% of our funding comes from private donations.
