Bad news for Boughton and the xenophobes

This isn't going to make the Mayor or the wingnuts in town happy.

Seems like soneone is losing support among their own party when it comes to immigration.
A new poll shows Republican voters don’t share as much hostility to immigrants as the Members of Congress they elect, RAW STORY has learned.

According to a report Thursday in Wall Street Journal’s Washington Wire, a survey conducted for the generally pro-immigration Manhattan Institute, the Tarrance Group found that “80% of likely Republican voters favor allowing illegal immigrants to stay in the U.S. and earn eventual citizenship. In a finding that may draw the attention of skittish congressmen, the poll also found that half those voters would cast ballots for a favored candidate even if they they disagreed with the candidate’s stand on immigration.”

Now, sincve immigration is a dead issue, can we talk about more important issues such as that seven year tax abatementfor the Kennedy Park development or the increase in our sewer rates.

...and lets not forget about the Galante case and the people who turned a blind-eye while he ripped everyone off with his outrageously high trash rates. That story is FAR from over.

The issue is far from dead. These polls are being manipulated by the left wing and main stream medIia. Apparently, you are the only one that doesn't know this.

You've got to be kidding in stating that a local tax abatement is more important than our nation's sovereignty. Illegal immigration is the most important domestic issue faced by this country. Unlike the pandering senate, the House of Representatives knows this and is acting accordingly. There will be a wall on the southern border and illegals will leave this country when workplace enforcement is mandated.

On September 26, 2007, ten plaintiffs filed suit in response to an arrest of aday laborers at a public park in Danbury, Connecticut. Plaintiffs amended their complaint on November 26, 2007.

The amended complaint states that plaintiffs sought to remedy the continued discriminatory and unauthorized enforcement of federal immigration laws against the Latino residents of the City of Danbury by Danbury's mayor and its police department.

Plaintiffs allege that the arrests violated their Fourth Amendment rights and the Connecticut Constitution because defendants conducted the arrests without valid warrants, in the absence of exigent circumstances, and without probable cause to believe that plaintiffs were engaged in unlawful activity. In addition, plaintiffs allege that defendants improperly stopped, detained, investigated, searched and arrested plaintiffs. Plaintiffs also allege that defendants violated their Fourteenth Amendment rights when they intentionally targeted plaintiffs, and arrested and detained them on the basis of their race, ethnicity and perceived national origin. Plaintiffs raise First Amendment, Due Process and tort claims.

Plaintiffs request declaratory relief, damages and attorneys fees.
