Many of the apologists for the criminals insist that "we are all immigrants." Obviously this is nonsense.
But for those of you who are immigrants I have some good news: CAUSA has details on the bills that will affect YOU that are currently in the Oregon legislature.
That's right, you came here on a Visa from Australia? Well then I'm sure that HB 2685 which "Requires Dept of Human Services to verify lawful presence in U.S. of applicants for public assistance" will affect you greatly.
And you are on a student Visa from Japan? I'm sure you are very worried about HB 2680 which will "require proof of citizenship to register to vote."
Once more, according to CAUSA, these are "Bills Affecting the Immigrant Community in the 2007 Oregon Legislature."
Immigrant Community? What an insult to those who have worked hard to come here the right way. How about "bills affecting criminals and their being able to commit more crimes"? I think that's more fitting.
