Abstract

Reversing the policy of his predecessor Deval Patrick (Hon’14), Governor Charlie Baker announced on June 2 that the Massachusetts State Police will now be permitted to detain suspected noncitizens. Baker insists that without this collaboration he has “concerns about restricting law enforcement’s ability to do their job.” But enlisting the state police to enforce federal immigration law is a costly mistake.
