Illegal Immigration in 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 amendment
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 Missouri has been proactive in addressing this growing
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 Missouri taxpayers!
