The Center for Immigration Studies issued a “press release” recently regarding Barnstable County Sheriff-Elect Donna Buckley. You won’t read it in the Enterprise. What poses as a press release is nothing more than hatemongering against illegal immigrants.

The center rightly points out that Ms. Buckley intends to exit the sheriff department’s agreement with US Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, which essentially deputizes the department so that officers can enforce immigration laws and gives the sheriff’s department access to the ICE database. But it doesn’t stop there.

Well, we voted Donna Buckley as sheriff knowing how she felt about these issues, now we will live with the consequences, good or bad. I'm looking forward to seeing how she does with her ideas.
