R.I. Governor Chafee’s Less Than Confident Response – Must See Video!

Gov. Lincoln Chafee has turned Rhode Island into a sanctuary state by executive order. One of his first acts as governor was to repeal his predecessor’s policy of having police cooperate with federal immigration authorities. He also bypassed the state legislature to grant in-state tuition benefits to illegal aliens, and is considering offering Utah-style driving certificates to illegal aliens. Meanwhile, Rhode Island is suffering from acute budget deficits and has one of the highest unemployment rates in the nation.

Asked by a local reporter whether his actions might encourage more illegal immigration, Governor Chafee responds with an answer he himself doesn’t seem to believe.

Why should we?

    This is one odd person, Where did he come from. well he has to have enough smarts to know he is the reason the state is in the condition it is in and the people must know it to.. So if they keep him in office , that is their problem it could be if they need more illegals we could ship them some more, these people don’t seem to realize illegal means, that you are doing a criminal act, a governor should know his job and the trust placed on him is to look after the welfare of the state, From the looks of this the man is clueless as to what he is doing. Time for some new brains in the headship of the state
