Good news. Too bad common sense isn't trickling upward and into the federal gov't . This needs to happen on a national scale. But it's a baby step, anyway.

State police could investigate the legal status of anyone they suspect is an
immigration violator, including crime victims, witnesses and people
supplying police with confidential tips, state police Maj. Steven O'Donnell
said.

Why would he want to prevent crime victims, witnesses and people supplying police with tips from helping to solve crimes?

If Arizona is any indicator - these laws will not slow down illegals from reporting crimes.

Let's say an illegal immigrant witnesses a murder and the the cops have no leads, do you think the illegal immigrant will come forward and help the cops solve the crime knowing that he/she will be deported when they do?

It has already happened here - AND, for those who do come forward, they are allowed to remain in the US to allow them to testify.

So, my answer is - yes

Carcieri's popularity has plummeted in recent months as Rhode Island faces an estimated $550 million budget deficit, its worst financial crisis since a series of bank and credit union collapses in the early 1990s.
