The Union Leader and New Hampshire Sunday News - 09-Jul-05 - Immigrant rights group appeals to AG
<......>To date, a total 10 illegal aliens are known to have been charged in New Ipswich and Hudson under the state law that says "a person is guilty of criminal trespass, if, knowing that he is not licensed or privileged to do so, he enters or remains in any place."
Jorge Mora Ramirez, 21, a Mexican arrested by New Ipswich police in April, will be the first to go on trial Tuesday.
"Tactics such as the ones used by police officials in New Ipswich and Hudson . . . increase fear and distrust of law enforcement within the whole immigrant community," the letter said.
The task force asked the two chiefs to stop making the arrests in May.
After both indicated they would continue the practice, the task force turned to the attorney general's office as the state's top law enforcement agency, Migalli said.
Here's the humor award for the "Immigrant's Rights" people: "We cannot see the attorney general being silent or passive in a situation like this. . . . People are fearful," said Nabil Migalli, a member of the New Hampshire Immigrants Rights Task Force.
What these groups always forget is these are illegal immigrants not legal immigrants. Technically, these illegals have no rights. I'm sure though with the help of most in Congress and even President Bush and the Supremes it won't be long before precedent will be set for illegal immigrants which by the way for all of those naysayers out there who think I'm over the top on the illegal immigrant issue also includes illegals "other than Mexican".
