Kudos to Kulongoski

Relating to criminal procedure; amending ORS 181.850

181.850. (1) No law enforcement agency of the State of Oregon or of any political subdivision of the state shall use agency moneys, equipment or personnel for the purpose of detecting or apprehending persons whose only violation of law is that they are persons of foreign citizenship [residing] present in the United States in violation of federal immigration laws.

Approved by the Governor [Kulongoski] July 17, 2003

And I'm sure that hundreds of rape victims, drunk driving victims, hit and run victims, property crime victims, ID theft victims, burglary victims and 16 year old girls who are subject to lecherous stares all thank you Governor! Let's elect someone who will repeal this law!

Yet another reason why we need some new blood in Mahonia Hall...

Jobs, crime, livability. This one encompasses so many reasons.

so when a public official is openly advocating violating federal mandates and has gone so far as to pass resolutions preventing law-enforcement agencies from enforcing federal laws, would that not be considered treason and interference with a federal officer but also sufficient grounds for removal from office?

Robin I think YES! But where is the American Lawyer that will process this criminal?

Daniel said...

The removal proccess will happen next November. Citizens who are fed up with this garbage need to recognize where the problem lies.

Not to defend the goobernor, but only the items in BOLD were amended. Basically, it just changed the name from INS to ICE.

Granted, it should have been repealed, or there should be a federal law requiring MANDATORY REPORTING of suspected illegal aliens to ICE. If we have to report deadbeat dads, I would think that illegals would be at least as grave a threat.

This is a creative approach...I also like Mannix's residency requirement for any government benefit, that should swing the one way door to Oregon the other way.

Unless Westlund's asinine "healthcare is a right" bill passes. Then nothign will stop the flood. Wait and see.

this is one of the biggest faults of our system is that they know that once they are elected into office, it takes an act of God [yes I said the word, God! and I'm proud of it] to get them out. It is almost like a dictatorship in a sense that they have what seems like free rein to do what they wish, and if we do not like it, too bad.

To quote a representative that I wish I could remember their names, "if the public does not like it, they can gather enough signatures to vote on it."

Doesn't that just gave you a real warm and fuzzy feeling inside?
