Lawmakers should step up to protect immigrants – View from Framingham

“Immigration is a federal responsibility; there is no constitutional requirement for state and local governments to assist in enforcement. In 1855, Massachusetts passed what is known as the Personal Liberty Act and refused to cooperate with the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850. We are at a similar moral turning point today. Do our state legislators have the courage to stand up for what is right?”
