No illegal aliens in Missouri?

I don't know if this is true. Since it arrived by email this afternoon, it must be. Right? Could it possible that Missouri is so far advanced, yet isn't under an attack similar to that in Arizona?

"So how come Missouri has NO ILLEGALS?

Read the answer. Isn't it funny how simple answers are available for just about everything?

Missouri has no illegals; go figure. Missouri's approach to the problem of illegal immigration appears to be more advanced, sophisticated, strict and effective than anything to date in Arizona. Do the loonies in San Francisco or the White House appreciate what Missouri has done? When are our fearless President and his dynamic Attorney General going to take action to require Missouri to start accepting illegal immigrants once again?

So, why doesn't Missouri receive attention?

Answer: There are no Mexican illegals in Missouri to demonstrate. The "Show Me" state has once again shown us how it should be done. There needs to be more publicity and exposure regarding what Missouri has done. So, let's 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 taxpayers benefits such as food stamps and 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 - but on a gradual basis. Missouri has made it clear that *illegal immigrants* are NOT welcome in the state, and they will certainly NOT receive public benefits (that's social benefits) at the expense of Missouri taxpayers.

My buddies friend lives in MO and said that the illegals live just over the border in Kansas and sneak over to work. He is sure some of them live in MO but they do not surface as MO is much more strick than Kansas.

Well Gus your wrong about Missouri. I live here. Most are self employed and even through they have E Verify the larger companies have ways of getting around it. Next time Missouri has a storm drop in and see the illegal s working on damage. Heck go to a swap meet and most people there are illegals. E Verify has hurt the smaller companies and the farmers that can't hire people to pick crops or take the jobs that others don't want to do. Because their companies aren't large enough to get away with it. There needs to be a balance. We need workers for something's crops, chicken plants...that is why all the Missouri chicken plants moved to Arkansas by the way, the pickers on farms aren't your Average American citizen they were illegals. Now they can't afford wages. A lot of farmers are out of business because of this law. Balance is needed. We need them but we want to keep our roofing, dock workers, bickers for our people in Missouri instead of giving our jobs to illegals who do it cheaper not better. Our trades men are hurting. Since I live here it's not that theyaxes. are tougher some of the bigger companies use them to work. And when they are having a search they magically disappear. And magically appear when it is okay. I know because I have witnessed it for myself. Balance is key but this way the rich are getting richer and the illegals don't have to pay taxes. Gotta make you rethink this doesn't it?
