Local Government Response to ICE

It is interesting to see local town responses to the brewing deportation effort widely expected from the Trump administration.  It is a balancing act. Overall Larry Cantwell’s response (see letter below) is to be commended.  I am proud of our local government.  However, beware of the fine print. I expect that the definition  of “serious criminal charges” will be a key point. Perhaps local police chiefs will have much discretion on how to enforce vague dirrectives. Many local political leaders are up for election in November 2017! Keep tabs now and VOTE even if it is an off-off election.screen-shot-2017-02-19-at-12-14-44-pm

    he  can not break the law, the law will be changing. i hope east hampton can still be the same. i knew that the message would have to be  “careful” as in writing is “legally binding” all the more importance to elect a democrat town supervisor , i think  wilkerson or other republicans would not have the same response. are you going to  hola church meeting tomorrow? bob
