Missouri is the smartest state if this is true

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 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 certainly NOT receive public benefits at the expense of Missouri taxpayers.

I lived in Missouri for a number of years in the 60's. I still have family there, and when I go to visit, I notice that there are hardly any Hispanics anywhere I go. Even the kitchen help in restaurants or fast food outlets. Maybe other states should look into advocating for these policies, it's certainly been effective there. I'm not a racist and I'm all for legal immigration.

We tried to get the same thing here in Oklahoma, the restaurant industry went crazy and the bill went down. I & others would love to see it pass!

How is it racist when no race is mentioned?
We have immigration laws, all they have to do is enforce them.

Hispanics respect the property and rights of others and make good neighbours! of course, there are exceptions but as a general rule this is so. However, during the Zimmerman case Blacks prove they do not respect the law or the rights and property of others. Perhaps I have misjudged those in history in the old south.
