*Not* Brattleboro Citizens' Breakfast - But Might Be of Interest


[There have not been any Citizens' Breakfasts - http://bit.ly/YkYQBx - for awhile ... due to a complexity of reasons ... if you have an interest in continuing or reformulating the Breakfast, please contact me directly.] 

But here is something I wanted to share that you might find of interest: On March 23, I sent a letter to Vermont Chief Justice Reiber. Anticipating his appearance on Vermont Edition this past Friday, I re-posted the content of the letter as a question to Vermont Edition and it was posed by Bob Kinzel in his interview. The interchange can be heard beginning at about 9:05, at the following link:http://digital.vpr.net/post/chief-justice-paul-reiber-vermont-supreme-court-and-justice-our-state

Subject: Courthouse Arrests of Undocumented Immigrants

Here's a quote from CJ Reiber's memo and a link to the text:

This is precisely why the denial of access to an institution as fundamental as our courts poses a threat to the safety and well-being of this State. Fear that deters anyone, but especially the most vulnerable among our population, from using the courts to protect them from crime or domestic abuse, unfair employment practices or housing discrimination, makes all Vermonters less secure. Every person who lives and works in Vermont must feel free to use our courts without fear or hesitation.
