“comments: You are wrong. I live in Rhode Island and thanks to Lincoln Chafee we are a Sanctuary State. He repealed e-verify as soon as he got into office. “The first move was made on his first full day in office, when Chafee issued his executive order to rescind the Illegal Immigration Control order, or the use of E-Verify.”
