Allan Fung: Federal authorities notified on illegal immigrants releases

Mayor Fung is promising to notify the federal government when immigrants in the country illegally are detained by police in his city, unlike other mayors. Fung said he signed an agreement this week as a way to ensure that criminals in the country illegally cannot continue to commit crimes in Cranston. The federal government is requiring cities receiving public safety grants to notify federal agents when immigrants in the country illegally are being released from police detention.

Bobby Nardolillo: Get tough on illegal immigrants

Nardolillo has pushed bills to screen undocumented immigrants out of the Rhode Island workforce by requiring private-sector employers to use the E-Verify system. Another Nardolillo bill urges Congress to allow states to require proof of citizenship for voting. He is concerned about costs and a perceived need to level the "playing field" between businesses that follow the rules and those that gain an advantage by hiring workers--who can't complain--for less money.
