Missouri’s Lawmakers are the “Smartest in the USA”
There are No Illegals in the ‘Show Me” State
Missouri has no illegals, so shouldn’t the other states do the same?
Missouri ‘s approach to the problem of illegal immigration appears to be more advanced, sophisticated, strict and effective than anything to date in Arizona.
The Big Q: Did the Obama White House appreciate what Missouri has done?
Big Q2: Why doesn’t Missouri receive any attention?
The Big A: There are virtually no illegals in Missouri to demonstrate.
The “Show Me” state has again shown us how it should be done. There needs to be more publicity and exposure regarding what Missouri has done.
In Y 2007, Missouri placed on the ballot a proposed constitutional amendment designating English as the official language of Missouri.
In November 2008, nearly 90% voted in favor.
And so English became the official language for all governmental activity in Missouri. No individual has the right to demand government services in a language other than English.
In Y 2008, a measure was passed that required the Missouri 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 in Missouri illegally.
Missouri law enforcement officers receive specific training with respect to enforcement of federal immigration laws. In Missouri, illegal immigrants do not have access to taxpayer benefits such as food stamps or health care through Missouri Health NET.
In Y 2009, a measure was passed that ensures Missouri ‘s public institutions of higher education do not award financial aid to individuals who are illegally in the United States.
In Missouri, 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 immigration laws, it is important to remember, Missouri has been far more proactive in addressing this horrific problem.
Missouri, my home state, has made it clear that illegal immigrants are not welcome in the state and they will certainly not receive public benefits at the expense of Missouri taxpayers.
The state has one of the lowest populations of illegal immigrants in the country.
According to 2010 U.S. Census data, there were about 55,000 illegal immigrants in Missouri, which was less than 1% of the state’s population.
Missouri may well become the example for the rest of our Republic under President Donald Trump, I trust you noticed that old friend US Senator Roy Blount, Jr (R-MO) was the master of the Inaugural ceremonies Friday, that is a signal friends.
Have a terrific weekend.
