I didn’t know Missouri had been so admirably proactive in the illegal immigration crisis, but it looks that, as usual, Missouri is on the cutting edge. Now, if we could just stop being so “backward” (Carnahan) and stop ‘clinging to our God & guns’ (Obama)….
But seriously, the legislation in place in Missouri with little controversy begs the question of why the Arizona law, which is less harsh than what we have, has drawn so much controversy. We haven’t even been sued by the DOJ yet!
This site is basically the same article with a little more info, mainly this line:
“So, why doesn’t Missouri receive attention? Answer: There are no Mexican illegals in Missouri to demonstrate.”
Excellent point, and something to remember.
Of course you have to keep in mind that
allmost of the measures outlined were passed under the Bush admin, when we had an Attorney General committed to following the Constitution.
