The first piece of legislation I supported as a candidate for Governor was the Safe Communities Act. Among other things, this legislation would make clear that state and local law enforcement resources may be used only to enforce state and local laws- not to enforce federal immigration laws.
And long before Donald Trump, Governor Baker failed to stand up against hate and discrimination time and time again. It's not ok. It's not who we are. If I'm your Governor, it will not matter what color you are; what you believe; whether you just came to this country or you are a Native American; whether you are a Syrian refugee; or whether you are transgender--I see you. I believe in you. And as your Governor, I would work for you.
A: Desmond Tutu. I got to meet him several times. He was actually quite joyful--even when threatened with assassination, nothing crushed his spirit. Once I sat down with him in his office--he was the Archbishop of Cape Town. He put his hands on my head and said a long blessing in Xhosa. When he finished, he sat back down and said, `I know you didn't understand what I said but let me assure you it was a beautiful blessing, and besides, it's the language they speak in heaven.'
