Newton State Rep. Ruth Balser, one of the lead sponsors of a bill to limit the ability of local police to participate in federal immigration enforcement is “optimistic” about the bills chances, according to this State House News story published by WGBH.


“I think that everyone would like to make sure the people who live in Massachusetts can trust their local police and that, if they need help, if they’re the victim of a crime or a witness to a crime, they can go to their police and not worry that someone in their family who may have questionable immigration status may be targeted,”
