It looks as though Missouri has the right idea.^_^



Subject: MISSOURI
PASS THIS ON TO ALL AMERICANS!


Missouri has no illegals; go figure... 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 . Does the White House appreciate what Missouri has done? So, why doesn't Missouri receive attention? Answer: There are 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. Please pass this around.

In 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! Thus, 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 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 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 are required 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 far more proactive in addressing this horrific problem. Missouri has made it clear that illegal immigrants are NOT WELCOME in the state and they will NOT receive public benefits at the expense of Missouri taxpayers.

Take your mind off of immigration for a moment. Do you think it wise that state and local governments begin the practice of enforcing federal statutory laws?

I'm not asking you IF they do it. They do. I'm asking if you think that is a wise course of action.

It all depends on the Laws they choose to enforce. Marijuana no, Immigration laws yes.-_-

I have to question what Federal Statutory (Immigration) Laws, in your mind, is Missouri enforcing?

State police officers in every state take an oath to UPHOLD THE CONSTITUTION. so in other words they took and OATH to insure the laws of the UNITED STATES as well as the STATE are enforced.

Bank Robbery is a federal offense... they respond to bank robberies.

Not a single illegal in my company. The industry itself, I would bet a good many, which I do compete against daily.
Well good for you! You may trim my trees anytime. The crooked tree next to my driveway is the result of 6 Mexicans, one with a back hoe, it took them over an hour to plant it at a 45 degree angle. That was 7 years ago. The sun eventually straightened it out a little.:lol:

What did they put in, a 48" box or a 4 to 6 inch caliper ball and burlap?

I'm just a small family ran business, we keep it personal with our clients.

It was a company hired by our association, the tree was about 8 feet tall and the roots were encased in a large round burlap ball. It's a nice looking tree now, just crooked, I'd have sworn they were all drunk.:lol:
