FWD: Yea, Missouri

Subject: Yea, Missouri

Just think how we'd be so much better off if he entire f'in country did this. These people are bleeding us dry and it's not a slow bleed either. These liberals have to GO!!!! Read on.

Missouri's Immigration Legislation

Everyone should read this. All Governors should have a copy of this.

Missouri acted 3 years ago!
(Yeh, Missouri)

Simple solutions to not so complex problems!

The "Show Me" state has once again showed us how it should be done.
They need more publication and exposure on this. Let's pass it around.

In 2007, Missouri placed on the ballot a proposed constitutional
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 Missourihas 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 Missouritaxpayers!

Yup, immigrants are the real problem in America.

The corproate overlords who underpay and overwork you (assuming they don't ship your job oversees and be done with it), who violate workplace safety laws so workers die, who dodge taxes (at best) and who often even get government subsisides, who destroy the environment, and who all but control the government to serve their interests, aren't the fundamental problem.

Nope, the real problem is that Spanish-speaking day laborer on the corner desperate to make a few bucks doing whatever dirty work he can find. He's not your potential ally against the people with real power - he's the enenmy! Blame HIM!

Will these morons ever wake up?

Not one mention of a law that punishes employers who actually hire illegal immigrants. Big surprise. We wouldn't want to punish the rich white people who actually benefit from the use of illegal immigrants and are the main reason immigrants arrive in the first place.

No, we'll just pass a bunch of stupid ass laws about our state being "english only". That'll learn up, stupid brown people.

If you are against illegal immigration laws, just look what happened to Maywood, California. Check out this story http://www.diggersrealm.com/mt/archives/002142.html A city of 30,000 declared citizens (upwards of 40,000 if you include all the inhabitants), this city is one of the top five bankrupt cities in the USA. Why can't people go thru the legal process that has been in place for over 200 years and apply for citizenship. Then they can be productive, tax paying people just like the rest of us.

Thanks prior Anon posts: exactly. This is more rightwing shenanigans which can be summed up: united we stand, divided we fall.

Tea Party people live in some delusional state, whereby they believe that if they buy into stuff like this, their corporate overlords will "take care" of them.

Well, they won't. Tea Partiers will be left just as much out in the cold as that dreaded brown person scrounging to get by. Wake up, you foolish, foolish people. Minorities and poor people are not your enemy; it's the top 2% who are massively ripping you off.

A great documentary "Food Inc" includes some interesting info about exactly how corporations go to Mexico and Central America to deliberately recruit illegal workers (in the case of this documentary, it's to work in very unsafe, unsanitary conditions in meat processing plants). Yet when the INS comes, the illegal workers get in trouble, but the WHITE business owners don't even get a tap on the wrist.

You can probably rent "Food Inc" at the video store or even borrow it from your local public library. I strongly encourage people to watch this; lots to learn from that.

Wake up, sheeples, indeed.

First off, there hasn't been a process for 200 years. For most of American history, immigration was simply a matter of getting here (unless, of course, you were Chinese or Jewish or some other "unclean" race).

The current "legal" immigration process takes years to complete, is expensive, confusing, frustrating and limited to a select lucky few who make it through the labyrinth of bureaucracy. The idea that most illegals, who are so desperate for work they risk life and limb in order to work low paying jobs for American employers, should sit around for 5-10 years (or more) while some imaginary visa gets processed is totally asinine.

As for the myth that illegals don't pay taxes and aren't productive, if you're still swallowing that tripe I'm not sure there is much I can tell you.

What, exactly, do you think these "laws" accomplish? English only? Limiting university financial aid? Why would your average illegal immigrant, who just wants to work his or her menial job, give a damn about any of these laws?

If you really, really want to deal with illegal immigration, then you have to punish those businesses (almost all owned by American citizens) who break the law and give jobs to them. You must be willing to absorb the cost increases that can and will come after these laws are created. This is reality.

I second the call from fershlitz to see "Food inc", because it will tell you a real story about how illegal immigration works in this country. Its a story of big business thumbing their noses at immigration laws and then turning around and exploiting foreign workers in order to increase their profit margins.

Another issue is that most undocumented workers do, in fact, pay into the system via payroll taxes. Many undocumented workers pay into Soc Sec and Medicare, but bc they are undocumented, they NEVER get paid out of the systems. A certain percentage of undocumented workers also pay regular income taxes - a larger number/percentage than most citizens imagine.

Laws like this, and the recent one in AZ, really only serve to distract attention away from the real issue: if citizens really do not want illegals working here, then go after the businesses and corporations that knowingly hire them. There are laws already on the books to deal with corporations that do this. Yet note when the issue of illegals come up the onus and focus is solely and only on the undocumented worker, almost never on the business owners who hire them.

How many Republicans hire illegal workers to do their yard work, clean their pools and nanny their kids??? I'll be it's a LOT, and I'll bet that almost NONE of this purist self-righteous Republicans pay into Soc Sec or Medicare for the cheap labor they hire.

Bunch of racist hypocrits with typical double standards.

Thanks prior Anon: I have to emphasize this point, too. Really steams me how ignorant citizens are in their simplistic assumptions and lack of knowledge about how the system actually works.

Most of these lilly-white bigots don't realize that their forebears got into this country with hardly any hoops to jump through. Nice for them.

Even those immigrants who marry a US citizen have a heck of a time gaining citizenship. It's an archane and difficult system, so b.s. like this is crap. It's not that easy. Nice for your grandparents that they didn't have to thru crap like this, and now you can be smug and self-righteous.

Really annoying in the ignorance and stupidity.

Agree with all the other sound and good points throughout these comments. The recent law in AZ is particularly dumb, as it will end up wasting the time of public safety officers, whose time could be put to much better uses. What a stupid waste of tax dollars pandering to racist idiots.

Hey anon, think its so easy to become a citizen legally? Check out the flow chart.


Its enough to make one cry just looking at the process. I can't imagine what its like to actually have to go through it.

These tea partiers take such a stupid tactic with their anti-illegal rhetoric. Their focus should be about saving jobs for Americans, not about speaking English. Their racism comes through loud and clear and turns most people off.

That said, I have assisted friends in the process of gaining a work permit, then permanent residency. It has become really difficult in the past few years as the ICE has begun refusing work permits to even educated people who already have a job lined up on the grounds that an American citizen can do the job. If they are refusing educated people, then what chance does a low-skilled person have of gaining a work permit? Answer: None. Also, you really can't get anywhere without paying a lawyer several thousand dollars for the work permit paperwork. No low-skilled person is going to have that much money. So asking them to "go through the process" is a fantasy.

I can't say I disagree with the ICE for their new stance as an eduated foreigner will ususally take lower pay than an American will - just to get the work permit. I imagine as unemployment runs out for many people they will have to start competing for the low-skill jobs with the illegals. Maybe then the laws will get tougher for the employers who have been the biggest beneficiaries of lax immigration.

Oh no, watch out for all those illegal immigrants in... Missouri. The white population might dip below 80%!

You know, I wouldn't mind all these idiots
ordinarily. The world is full of idiots. But
the RW idiots wish to destroy the rest of us.

They can't be reasoned with.

They can't compromise.

They can't be appeased.

They're vicious extremists who want the
rest of us imprisoned or, even better, dead.

There is no middle ground or liberal wing
of the GOP. They've all been driven away
or underground by the extremists. And
these nuts are aided and abetted by a
media that thinks extremism is 'sexy'.

I never minded them years ago because the
John Birch Society was relegated to crazy
status by the rest of us. Now they've been
given a platform far higher than the rest of
us and they bay for our scalps.

Deeper and deeper we sink in the quicksand.

Thanks, Fourth Estate. Way to abdicate your
