Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius has signed legislation that will allow some illegal immigrants to pay in-state tuition at state colleges and universities, instead of the higher out-of-state rate.
Saying rigorous screening standards would ensure recipients ''won't be terrorists,'' Gov. Jeb Bush on Monday strongly endorsed issuing state driver's licenses to both illegal immigrants and foreign nationals who make Florida home for part of the year.
"Immigration is not a right guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution to everyone and anyone in the world who wishes to come to the United States. It is a privilege granted by the people of the United States to those whom we choose to admit."
-- Former Democratic congresswoman, the late Barbara Jordan of Texas (who chaired a presidential immigration commission in the 1990s)
The number of Illegal aliens crossing America's borders exceeds outright warfare 'invasion' levels! The costs of providing healthcare, food, housing, the costs of drug related crimes and increased law enforcement, hit the US tax payer with multiple billions of dollars annually. Added to that, Illegal aliens sent 11-Billion tax-free dollars back to Mexico in 2003. American tax payers picked up the tab!
The Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) is calling upon the Bush Administration to reject recommendations to grant legalization to an estimated one to two million Mexican illegal aliens living in the United States. The organization charges that under both Republican and Democratic administrations, the federal government has ignored its responsibilities to enforce immigration laws, and that the amnesty proposals being offered compound the government's malfeasance.
Kerry's statements and voting record indicate that he supports a radical agenda of amnesty for illegal aliens. Central to Kerry's immigration policy is his support of citizenship for illegal aliens who have "obeyed the law." According to Kerry, "I am in favor of 'earned legalization' for those people who are here now, who have obeyed the law, are working, have paid their taxes, stayed out of trouble. Under the circumstances, we should be converting people to citizenship." ("A Closer Look at the Candidates," NPR October 28, 2003). Kerry must not understand that people who are here "illegally," have already broken the law.
