Missouri has no illegals, go figure…shouldn’t ALL the other states do the same?
from Missouri state representative, Nita Jane Ayres, The Ozark Sentinel

I was blown away with this very simple solution of a difficult situation. So simple
and straight forward. Why can’t this not be done elsewhere?

Here is what Missouri has done:

1. 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! No individual has the right to demand government services in a language OTHER than English.

2. 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.

3. 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. The same exclusion applies to food stamps and healthcare.
