    MILFORD — Milford is about to become the first town in New England to partner with federal immigration officials to prevent the hiring of illegal immigrants.
    The Massachusetts city and Immigration and Customs Enforcement are scheduled to sign the agreement at Monday’s Board of Selectmen meeting.
    Under the program known as IMAGE — which stands for ICE Mutual Agreement between Government and Employers — companies and municipalities are provided education and training in proper hiring procedures, including the use of employment screening tools such as E-Verify. Certified employers also undergo an audit to ensure current employees are eligible to work in the U.S.

    They're just causing all the traffic crashes and 90-10 violations that American citizens can't be bothered to cause themselves.

    If that happens then all dispatchers, police, fire, and EMS must take diversity training immediately. We don't want to come off as poor hosts.

    We're already great hosts, Free healthcare, welfare,housing, EBT, and all the other benefits they're "entitled" to for breaking into our country. Glad Milford has said ENOUGH! Hope the rest of the Commonwealth follows...just don't tell Deval

    Group blasts Milford for illegal immigrant program

    An immigrant-rights group blasted the Milford selectmen’s plan yesterday to become the first New England municipality to sign on to a federal program designed to ensure that none of the town’s approximately 1,500 employees are illegal aliens.
    “We think this is just political grandstanding,” said Eva Millona, executive director of the Massachusetts Immigrant and Refugee Advocacy Coalition.
    Brian Murray, chairman of the board of selectmen, said he does not believe any town employees are in the U.S. illegally. But since prospective employees already are required by federal law to fill out I-9 forms with identifying information, Murray said, the town being certified with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s employment compliance program would merely expedite the process by which the government verifies whether they are here legally.

    Illegal immigration is a hot-button issue with a LOT of people....Mitt Romney should make it a key part of his campaign.
