Immigration Politics - Maine: Lawmaker Changes Mind on "Arizona-style" Immigration Bill

Maine? Yes, Maine, too. 

Lawmaker Changes Mind on "Arizona-style" Immigration Bill: "When Republican State Rep. Kathleen Chase of Wells announced her plan to introduce an Arizona-inspired immigration bill earlier this year she angered immigrant advocates, as well as business and religious leaders who worried about racial profiling. Chase maintained that the state needed to step up enforcement of immigration laws. So it surprised many when she moved Tuesday to withdraw her own bill."
