AUGUSTA, Maine (NEWS CENTER) — In a radio interview with Fox News host Laura Ingraham on Monday, Governor LePage revealed he plans to issue an executive order to remove two sheriffs from their duties who, he claims, say they won’t work with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
Ingraham asked LePage for the latest on refugee resettlement in Maine. He said refugees were still coming in for a while when he first announced Maine was not going to participate in refugee resettlement during the Obama Administration, but “they’re not now.”
“We’ve asked ICE to investigate a few organizations in the state of Maine,” LePage said. “Just last Friday — I’m issuing an executive order right now because we have a couple sheriffs that say they’re not going to work with ICE.”
“Unbeknownst to them, the Maine constitution says if they don’t follow state law, then I can remove them.”
