Is this a news article or a blog opinion?
The OP is quoting from what may be a blog about a news article found here:
SCITUATE, R.I. — Rhode Island State Trooper Nuno Vasconcelos was patrolling Interstate 95 a few months ago when he came upon a two-car accident in heavy traffic. The trooper pulled up, stepped out of his cruiser, and asked one of the drivers for his license
The man said he did not have a license, and under questioning, confessed that he was here illegally from Guatemala.
If the accident had happened 15 miles north in Massachusetts, the man would probably have been arrested for driving without a license, which carries a fine of up to $1,000 and 10 days in jail, then released pending an appearance in district court.
But in Rhode Island, illegal immigrants face a far greater penalty: deportation.
Rhode Island's immigration law will be the test that ends the US v Arizona lawsuit. Since Rhode Island's law was not contested, it will be hard for the Arizona law to be singled out. If Obama and Holder wish to sue more states, it will make the Democrats not only appear desperate to cater to illegal immigrant votes but will to openly defy federal immigration laws while doing so.
