An unexpected twist

FRAMINGHAM

Gov. Mitt Romney has talked about giving state troopers the power to arrest illegal immigrants. They may not have to travel far.

It turns out that scores of the folks hired to clean State Police headquarters in Framingham and other state facilities have been undocumented.

A story on the front page of today's Globe says that a review of payroll records for the Boylston company found that many of the employees had questionable or bogus Social Security numbers.

Raymond P. Howell, spokesman for National Facility Services, issued a statement saying that the company is ``collateral damage in the political battle over illegal immigration."
