Chafee Issues Executive Orders on E-Verify, Ethics

Wednesday, January 05, 2011

 

Governor Lincoln Chafee is marking his second day in office with two executive orders.

This morning, at a ceremony at the International Institute in Providence, Chafee rescinded Gov. Don Carcieri’s executive order requiring the state to participate in the E-Verify immigration enforcement program.

“However well intentioned it may have been, it has caused needless anxiety within our Latino community without demonstrating any progress on illegal immigration….an issue I strongly believe must be solved at the Federal level,” Chafee said yesterday in his inaugural address.

Chafee is also expected to issue an executive order on ethics today. The order will set ethics standards for all levels of the executive branch, according to spokesman Mike Trainor.
