Rhode Island Won't Let It Happen to Them
Fights to Avoid California Fate

Lou Dobbs Tonight -- CNN -- August 15  
Rhode Island Governor Carcieri- --contact to thank him for his courage.

    Rhode Island's governor today is looking to replace eight members of its commission on Hispanic affairs. Those eight commissioners yesterday resigned in protest over the governor's order to crack down on illegal immigration. Governor Donald Carcieri issued his illegal immigration control order back in March. Among its provisions are requirements that state police check the immigration status of all who are arrested.
    Governor Carcieri said the state is facing a massive budget deficit and illegal aliens create a financial strain on state resources. The governor said he will not rescind that order and he will fill the vacancies that are now on that commission.
