A few weeks ago, a New Hampshire judge ruled to dismiss criminal trespass charges against some illegal aliens, saying that prior court rulings had determined that only the federal government has the authority to enforce immigration laws.
That didn’t sit well with a lot of people, myself included. But apparently a few other people who didn’t like it also happen to be New Hampshire legislators, and they can do a few more things I can’t. Not only can they drive through state toll booths without paying, they can also lean on the governor when they feel the need. And this is apparently one of those times — they want him to get the Attorney General to appeal the judge’s decision.
I don’t hold out much hope for that, but I wish them well.
On a possibly related note, yesterday Mr. Duckie and I went on another sojourn — this one to Merrimack, New Hampshire, where once again his youth and lack of proper ID kept him from properly enjoying the experience. I’ll talk about that later, but on the way back he spotted a sign that got him rather irate. He insisted on posing for pictures with the sign, complaining loudly about his lack of a proper digestive and excretory system.
