It was a busier-than-usual Friday at the State House, where lawmakers were focused on the emotional issue of immigration.
Because of the large crowd expected, the Legislature's public safety committee held a rare Friday hearing. It was to consider a bill that would make all of Massachusetts a so-called "sanctuary state," where police would refuse to cooperate with federal immigration authorities.
WBUR's Steve Brown was at the hearing and joined All Things Considered to discuss the day's events.
