State police says no to Boughton's request
The nail has been hammered into Mayor Boughton's coffin.
This wasn't a surprise to anyone because there wasn't a chance the State Police were going to enfore a federal policy. Will Boughton continue his crusade of going after illegal immigrants or will he more on to other more important matters?
Connecticut's top state police official is rejecting a proposal to deputize state troopers as immigration agents.
Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton had requested the program, saying his city has been overwhelmed by an influx of illegal immigrants in recent years.
Public Safety Commissioner Leonard Boyle says the unusual move would not be a good use of resources because the United States lacks any meaningful deportation process for illegal immigrants in the United States.
I'm sure his democratic challengers hopes he keeps up the fight.
