New Oklahoma Immigration Law
Anybody hear about this?
Oklahoma's Governor Brad Henry has signed a sweeping immigration reform bill 8
May 2007 and it becomes effective in November 2007:
Every State needs to look closely at this !!!!
House Bill 1804 .....Its sponsor believes will go a long way in dealing with the
illegal alien problem in the state.
For tet of the billgo to
House Bill 1804 was passed by overwhelming majorities in both the House and
Senate of the Oklahoma Legislature. The measure's sponsor, State Representative
Randy Terrill, says the bill has four maintopical areas: it deals with identity
theft; it terminates public assistance benefits to illegals; it empowers state
and local police to enforce federalimmigration laws; and it punishes employers
who knowingly hire illegal aliens.
Oklahoma is no longer "O.K." for illegal aliens, Terrill observes. "When you put
everything together in context," he contends, "the bottom line is illegal aliens
will not come here if there are no jobs waiting for them, they will not stay
here if there is no government subsidy, and they certainly won't stay here if
they know that if they ever encounter our state and local law enforcement
officers, they will be physically detained until they're deported. And that's
exactly what House Bill 1804 does."
The Oklahoma legislator is pleased the bill he sponsored into law was signed by
Governor Henry and believes it will go a long way to curb the illegal
immigration problem in the state. "I would remind people that states are
separate sovereigns in our federal system," Terrill points out. "Anyone who
doesn't understand that needs to go back and take an American federal government
class in college," he says.
As a result of that sovereignty, the Oklahoma lawmaker insists, "we have as much
right - in fact, I would argue, a responsibility - to protect our taxpayers
against that sort of egregious waste, fraud and abuse as the federal government
should have a responsibility to protect that international border, but doesn't
Terrill says as long as the federal government refuses to do its job of
protecting the international borders of the United States, states like Oklahoma
must take action to deal with the problem that is costing taxpayers in the state
$200 million a year in public benefits, law enforcement costs, and other

It's too bad this has to be a state issue. I think there are definitely things that should be handled by the state, and by the federal government. Unfortunatly the feds seem to be getting too much into state issues. However, protecting our borders is definitely a federal issue that they are neglecting.
I have always wondered. People complain about how much it would cost to enforce some of these laws, build fences, etc. But I wonder how that cost would balance against the savings in public assistance, medical care illegals get for free (and we all pay for), etc. I think we would come out on the plus side in the long run.

Citizens as well as law enforcement folks in OK are tired of illegals with their crime and drugs. I-35 and I-40 are primary corridors for both illegals and their dope. Law enforcement folks catch a van load of illegals, arrest them and then the feds refuse to take custody.
Oklahoma politicians bit the bullet a few years ago. They outlawed the sale of Sudafed by the truckload and got a handle on the meth problem. Now we have Mexicans hauling their much stronger pharmaceutical grade meth all over the US.
The feds often refuse to charge drug trafficers when they are caught with large quantities of dope by local and state law enforcement.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The U.S. House of Representatives this morning voted to withhold federal emergency services funding for "sanctuary cities" that protect illegal immigrants.

Don't like Oklahoma politicians and I don't like their bill - now all the Illegals will leave OK and move to NC. :)
Its a shame that youth is wasted on the young.
