Advocates for immigrants to respond to Carcieri today
A group of advocates is getting together today to discuss an executive order signed last week to crack down on illegal immigrants in Rhode Island.
This afternoon’s press conference is sponsored by three groups: Members of Immigrants United; We Can Stop the Hate Rhode Island; and Univocal Legislative Minority Advisory Coalition. Government officials and community members are also invited.
The event is a response to an executive order signed Thursday by Governor Donald Carcieri that will require state agencies and vendors to verify the legal status of employees and direct the state Police and Department of Corrections to work with federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement “to ensure federal immigration law is enforced.”
The press conference is set for 2 p.m. today at the Algonquin House, 807 Broad Street, in Providence.
