I'm glad Kansas is keeping their agenda moving, after repealing that law about beating your wife. The worst part is that the liberal coasts pay for all the handouts these backwards red states take... I hate subsidizing these ungrateful bigοts.

You should be thankful there is no drug testing on this web site.

The Red States are the ones paying for government handouts to CA, NY, IL, etc. etc. etc.

Sorry to interject facts, but you obviously weren't going to.....

Typically, facts aren't things that you just completely make up. New York, for instance, receives $0.79 in federal spending for every dollar it pays in taxes. Kansas receives $1.12 in handouts for every dollar they pay in taxes.

Use your brain. Incomes are higher on the coast. Higher incomes mean higher tax rate. Higher tax rate means greater revenue per capita.

What is wrong with wanting to control our borders like any other country? There are currently 20+ million illegals in the country with the majority coming in from our Tucson Sector. This issue is not just a Republican issue since this issue is one that both Democrats and Republicans do agree with. Illegals know the consequences of being caught when coming here illegally but are outraged when it becomes a reality. I for one am sick of seeing my real estate taxes continue to rise because of our schools here in Tucson filled with illegals, the mismanagement and agenda of the TUSD by the likes of Adelita Grijalva and the other school board members.

Not only the illegal..but the children of the illegals... now us taxpayers have to provide food and clothing and education and healthcare and sometimes section 8 housing to these illegal families. It's not just the 20 million.. it's their babies. Lets say that 10 million have babies.. that's billions of dollars just to education these kids.. PER YEAR... for 12 years. And.. they can't even be bothered to learn english. Now we have the next generation of non-english speaking adults who are birthing more babies... and on and on it goes.

When is the federal government going to concede that there failure to control illegal immigration has led to an angry and resentful populace. It is clear that American's have looked at the costs and benefits of illegals and determined that the cost is too high.
I applaud yet another state doing what it needs to to protect it's citizens and be fiscally responsible.

I agree with you, but the federal government and all of its minions on either side of the political aisle are under the very ERRONEOUS misperception that if they stand up and support STRONG and LEGAL immigration policy, they will offend the fallacious "latino" voters, as if we were all:

one race
one culture
one ethnicity
one political party
one world view

Eventually (I hope) these buffoons we have in office will see that ONE strong stand on the obscene abuse of ILLEGAL ALIEN ONSLAUGHT will appeal more to the "average American" of any race or ethnicity than the current pandering to the Taco Bell Chihuahua.

But don't get your hopes up.
Their ignorance is VERY bold and their arrogance bolder!

We in the American Latino community wish Kobach much luck with his legal efforts to diminish the size and impact of the illegal alien presence within Kansas. We grow weary of the excessive deluge of unskilled foreign nationals into our schools, hospitals and other public environs. It is time to turn the cheap labor spigot off.

Minnesota ~ home of, Centro de Trabajadores Unidos en Lucha (CTUL),

"A Cub lawsuit filed Thursday alleging trespassing led to the restraining order, though the floor cleaners' campaign goes back to last year. With the support of the worker advocate group Centro de Trabajadores Unidos en Lucha (CTUL), floor cleaners pushed several of the metro areas' biggest grocery chains -- Cub, Rainbow Foods, Target, Byerly's and Lunds -- to improve their lot.

The grocery chains don't directly employ the 1,000 or so Twin Cities floor cleaners; they work instead for janitorial cleaning contractors, laboring at night when supermarkets are closed. But CTUL organizer Veronica Mendez said "the problem really lies with the stores."

Where illegals employed by janitorial cleaning subcontractors, harass their employer's customers in which to obtain more money ~ LOL

Arizona, Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama, now possibly Kansas. I sense a continuing trend. Illegals are not desired, wanted or needed. Past time for the peasant gang-banger wannabes to self-deport. They can take their co-conspirator family members with them.

Agreed. The pro-illegal posters use of some of the most mean-spirited, hteful comments in reply to anti=illegal posts that I've seen on this entire website. They are angry that we don't want their extended family or girlfriends/boyfriends in this country. They speak from purely selfish, self-centered motivations. I find their transparency mostly amusing and somewhat p@the tic.

You forgot Massachusetts:

"Companies found to employ illegal immigrants would be debarred from bidding on state contracts and could face sanctions, attendees of public colleges and universities would be required to verify their immigration status before obtaining in-state tuition rates, and applicants for public housing, family assistance or college grants would also be checked for legal residency."

The bill also tightens motor vehicle registration requirements by requiring a Social Security card or tax ID number, and stiffens penalties for driving without a license.
Under the new penalties, driving without a license would carry a $500 penalty on a first offense – increased from $100 - and carry the potential for jail time on any subsequent offense. Drivers repeatedly caught without a license could face forfeiture of their vehicle after the third offense.
Penalties for creating, disseminating or using false identification would also be increased, and the Patrick administration would also be required to submit a report to the Legislature describing what hurdles might exist to expanding license-plate reading technology currently in place in 16 communities.
Backers of the bill say the technology exists to scan more than 1,000 plates an hour on cars traveling up to 70 miles-per-hour, but while the system connects to a federal warrant and missing-persons database, Massachusetts warrants are maintained in a separate database.

How soon will BHO run out of the "criminal illegals" he's deporting & turn to the illegal DREAMers to deport?

That would sure paint him into a corner.

He can't just deport them then the hispanic community would rebel but if he stops deporting illegals when the resources to do so are so open then he faces far heavier criticism from tens of millions of unemployed citizens, all their families and friends. Not to mention the majority of dems who are against illegal immigration.

The GOP is not only alienating Latinos and other immigrants, but also business people and farmers who object to the Republican enforcement-only/no legalization immigration policy that is destroying businesses and families around the country.

With BHO deporting 1 illegal every 79 seconds ~ its only a matter of a short period of time, before ALL 11.2 million illegals are deported

There are immigrants that have gone through the channels to become documented and become citizens. A lot of people have and are waiting. It's not fair to them that the illegals come over here and reap all the jobs and benefits when the other immigrants worked hard to do things the legal way. Wanting illegals here is ignorant. Farmers used to have many children to help them till the land. Maybe we need to go back to doing that.

Beg to differ ~ Is it NOT pro-illegalist websites blaming the fat rich Republicans whom are recruiting illegals as cheap slave laborers to enrich their Republican business & corporation owned coffers?

Which is it? Republicans offering jobs & employing illegals, or Republicans deporting illegals at 1 illegal deported every 79 seconds?

Texas Rebel, as a Texan I could not disagree with you more. Mexicans have been living in present day Texas state since long before the Anglos ilegallyimmigrated there. We have "co-existed" together for 166 years or since statehood. American folks of Mexican ancestry have made Texas the economic engine that it is today.

Why on earth would you push a measure that would be against you're own interest or Americas.
