From Moonbattery -- The Massachusetts Senate passed a far-reaching crackdown this afternoon on illegal immigrants and those who would hire them, going further, senators said, than any immigration bill proposed over the past five years.
The measure, which passed on a 28-10 vote as an amendment to the budget, would bar the state from doing business with any company found to break federal laws barring illegal immigrant hiring. It would also toughen penalties for creating or using fake identification documents, and explicitly deny in-state college tuition for illegal immigrants.
With other states forcing illegals to leave, Massachusetts realized many of them would gravitate toward the known sanctuary states, depressing wages, overwhelming their already overwhelmed social services, and bringing drug and gang trouble with them. That leaves only Maine, Oregon, and Alaska as the remaining sanctuary states but, about half the other states have large cities that are declared sanctuary cities.
I doubt taxpayers in these cities want their neighborhoods to become barrios overnight so expect to see a lot more of these laws passed......it's about time!
