Take the Federal Immigration Law ignore it (both political parties have done it), then when the situation gets even worse with more violence, murders, kidnapping, human and drug trafficking and then a state tries to enforce the federal law to stop the craziness, the new administration who "never lets a good crisis go to waste" takes advantage of the situation to rally Hispanics to vote Democratic. It's "The Chicago Way" gone national with Rahm Emanuel and crew leading the way. It's "Change you can believe in", the most "transparent and ethical administration ever", what did Nancy Pelosi say "we're going to drain the swamp". It's ok kool-aid drinkers we see the hope and change and we aren't drinking it.

Think they will go after the "Show Me" state also? Just love this article! Poor Arizona, maybe they should contact Missouri for some help. Shame on this current administration and for anyone who is giving Arizona a hard time.

The "Show Me" state has once again showed us how it should be done. They need more publication and exposure on this.
I sure don't remember much publicity about any of this.

Subject: Illegal Immigration in Missouri - MUST READ!

In 2007, Missouri placed on the ballot a proposed constitutional amendment designating English as the Official language of Missouri. Nearly 90% voting in favor! English became the official language for ALL governmental proceeding in Missouri. It also means no individual has the right to demand government services in a language OTHER than English.

In 2008 a measure was passed that requires our Highway Patrol and other law enforcement officials to verify the immigration status of any person arrested, and inform federal authorities if the person is found to be here illegally. It allows Missouri law enforcement offices to receive training to enforce federal immigration laws. The bill makes it clear that illegal immigrants will NOT have access to taxpayers benefits such as food stamps and health care through Missouri HealthNET.

In 2009 a measure was passed that ensures Missouri's public institutions of higher education do NOT award financial aid to individuals who are here illegally. The law also requires all post-secondary institutions of higher education to annually certify to the Missouri Dept. of Higher Education that they have NOT knowingly awarded financial aid to students who are unlawfully present in the United States.

So while Arizona has made national news for its new law, it is important to remember Missouri has been proactive in addressing this growing problem.

Missouri has sent a clear message that illegal immigrants are NOT welcome in our state and they are certainly NOT welcome to receive public benefits at the cost of Missouri taxpayers!

Why nothing about OBAMA'S communist plot to snoop the internet and find out what your are writing? This is strait out of the Marx-Lenin-Stalin regimes and no comment?

The Missouri law requires the check after an arrest. Arizona requires the check after a "stop" - that is a big difference.

If Arizona had followed the Missouri model there would probably be no lawsuit.

Local law enforcement has regularly worked with federal agencies to deport gang members and drug dealers. This has worked.

For the record - there have been more deportations annually under the Obama administration than under Bush.

In addition immigration officials have become more efficient in monitoring illegal emplyment. Rather than institute raids on emplyers and hauling off suspected illegals, immigration officials audit suspected employer's records and require then to fire illegals. No drama of cameras recording people hauled away in handcuffs and no demonstations from immigration groups. However, the result is the same - fired illegals go back to their home country.

Stop the employment of illegals and you solve the problem. However, there are employer groups that oppose this because it eliminates their source of cheap illegal workers,

What's up with that house over on Downer and I wonder how much money the City has spent on it. I heard that Martha Stewart was going to move in.

Thank you for pointing out the fact they are checked after they are arrested. Did not catch that.

Yes, Martha Stewart is buying that house. But she will be renting it to the crackheads that are currently taking over much of the rental on the west side. "Crime Free Housing Initiative"? Really? Anyone heard of the city/police enforcing or taking advantage of this?

Didn't think so.

Exactly. The primary driver of illegal immigration is business interests. It's much easier for them when they can treat the workers like crap, ignore safety laws, pay them below minimum wage and call USCIS if they complain.
