Hodgson vows to counteract SJC immigration ruling

Reacting to a Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court decision Monday, Bristol County Sheriff Thomas M. Hodgson said he is drafting state legislation to counteract the decision by explicitly allowing state and local law enforcement to detain, at the request of federal authorities, people suspected of being in the country illegally. The SJC ruled that in the absence of a criminal charge, court officers do not have the authority to hold or arrest someone solely on a civil immigration matter.

Commander Schmidt part of Vietnam veterans honored by Red So

One could call it a metaphor for the pre-game salute in which many of the 1,400 Vietnam War veterans in attendance said they were finally given the welcome home that they didn't receive when they returned a half century ago. American Legion National Commander Charles E. Schmidt, who served with the 619th Tactical Control Squadron at Tan Son Nhut Air Base, was one of them.
