And good riddance

Immigrant tuition bill faces fight
A key Republican lawmaker is adamant that a bill that would allow the non-U.S.-born children of illegal immigrants to pay in-state tuition at Oregon’s public universities will die this year.

Rep. Andy Olson, R-Albany, said Friday that he won’t allow Senate Bill 742 — passed by the Oregon Senate on a 18-11 vote in late March — to get out of the House Rules Committee, which he co-chairs.

Olson said the e-mails and letters he has received from constituents opposed to the bill far outweigh those from proponents of the proposal. He added that he has reservations about starting down a slippery slope of legislation favoring people who have entered the U.S. illegally.

“What other laws should they be allowed to break?” he said.

This bill spits in the face of Americans who play by the rules. It is satisfying to see the Republicans standing strong against it.

Once again we see bleeding heart Democrats willing to bend over backwards to waste OUR money.

Too reward people who can't steal a job when they get that diploma anyhow.

After years of telling us that illegal aliens are "Doing jobs we won't do."

Now they want to help them get a college degree as if now Americans won't do jobs that require a degree.

Claiming they will need to work on getting Citizenship, ignoring the fact that the only ones that grant that our the FED's and they do not do that for people already here illegally.

While Democrat - DAVE HUNT ignored the give jobs back too Americans - E-Verify bill last session, his one bill allowed to move forward is a carrot for more illegals to destroy our schools and steal even more jobs.

We can all be glad that many Republicans got elected to the House or this would be the new Law by now.

We can all hope that Republicans get control of our Senate and more are in our House so that Mexican Mafia friendly bills like this vanish from the table next year!

Democrats remind us of a few things here by promoting this legislation.

Democrat election campaigns are funded by corrupt employers hiring these illegals. look it up on Orestar.

Democrats admit that illegals via the provisional ballot (for those w/out ID, whom hello can't vote in fed. elections) are voting in our elections.

Democrats here want too encourage even more illegal immigrants too come here and suck our coffers dry.

There is no other logical reason for this or the driver license only for illegals bills moving forward.

Yep. Democrats hate America. One of the two co-dominant political parties is actively trying to destroy the country, and in 2008 a majority of said country voted for them to do it. It's the only logical explanation!

Would Jesus today have said...

We need two peoples...those that have broken several laws shall get a special law passed just for them and those that have not will pay the price.

We shall make Americans a 2nd class peoples...and require them to give up thier hard earned work to help those that are decievers.

We shall hire worship at the feet of these thieves of identity while ignoring the needs of the tax paying and law abiding citizens.

We shall be told...that the locals who are suffering with little or no work available for them too feed thier families, shall be required to contribute without being asked, to contribute even more so that those that have stolen the work can have an even better life.

We shall reward the holders of these indentured servants, whom are corrupt just as the cotton growers were in the 18th century...and give their slaves a higher education for thier adult (18+ in college) children.

We shall give a gov't issued ID card to operate a vehicle to these id thieves...this to help the undocumented pharmycists too be able to dispense their wares without concern of being prosecuted for poisoning the children.

We shall reward the cowards...those that run away from their own land, instead of standing up to their leaders and asking for help for thier family.

We shall have 2 peoples...those that suffer by following the rules of the land - Americans, and those that are given entitlements for not doing so - Thieves of food stamps, medical care, social security numbers, education, housing, etc - Illegal aliens.

The Moneychangers (OUR money they spend) - Democrats...the only time Jesus got mad in the entire Bible and would again today if he were here in Oregon.

Kaelri, in the last election, I think one of the democrats who won, didn't actually win. Al Franken had felons who voted for him who weren't supposed to vote. Harry reid also had massiv e illegals voting for hiim. They brought them in by the busloads from the casinos. I wonder how many other democrats had to cheat to win their elections?

If that floats your boat so be it. I just don't want to belong to a party (group) who is affiliated with dishonesty (yes, most politicians lie, but the dems, like obama, reid, pelosi, schrader, wyden) takey lying to a new level.

I find most reprehensible that a couple of the big dems, ted kennedy and hillary and bill clinton have committed the treason. Bill sold missile technology to the chi coms and ted worked with the KGB in the eighties. Too bad we don't execute traitors these days.

I emailed Rep. Olson thanking him for his stand on this issue and his office responded with the following:

"1. Currently, we are receiving about a 15-1 ratio of either personal visit, phone call or email asking me to oppose the bill. The voice across our state is fairly strong concerning this issue.

2. Rep. Olson had five Democrats in the House approach him this past week requesting that he not allow the bill to come to the House floor for a vote...they oppose the bill! So this bill is not a partisan issue!

3. This bill is a problem that needs to be addressed from the Federal Government, not state, patch-work laws.

Several Colleges and a couple Universities in Oregon already allow in state tuition to people as long as they meet the residency requirements. The bill is not really a game changer for folks either way.

Are those private or public colleges?

The list is so long, I don't know where to start. If they all went away today, tomorrow this country would be in much better shape. Not all of our problems would disappear, but a lot of them would and other problems would decrease in size.

There is not one valid reason besides the sob stories to have them here. They are here to fuck this country. Different people and groups want them here for different reasons. Cheap labor, votes, balkanization of the US. The list goes on and one.

Whatever the reason is, it is bad for this country.

If you have one valid reason why they are here, I would love to hear it. Sob stories about how their children should not be punished by the crimes of the parents so we need to give their kids subsidize education are not valid. Children should not be punished for the crimes of their parents, neither should they profit from them.

I want one valid reason why they should be allowed to stay here that is beneficial for my child, my grand children, the rest of my family and my country.

Give it your best shot. You better bring facts and numbers.

Anon 8:35, Why are you NOT obsessed with illegal aliens? What part of "illegal" do you fail to understand? Maybe you should be because the next job the illegals take away from a U.S. citizen might be yours.

If, in fact, you are a U.S. citizen and not here illegally.


Enforce the law & they will leave said...

Why I'm obssesed with illegal immigration: One recent example...

Yesterday in S. Mexico they caught 513 "immigrants" sneaking into thier too come here.

Some were from, get this...China, India and Nepal.

So now "poor" people from across the ocean have the means to fly/boat from 1,000's of miles away and then pay/owe another $7,000, supporting the Mexican Mafia, too come here for "Free" stuff.

This is helping Mexico's huge underground economy while destroying ours.

The TERRORISTS of the World can obviously do the same as these others have.
The extremist Muslims have the money to pay more and not wind up getting caught stuffed in the back of a semi.

And the DEMOCRATS of Oregon and DC want too give them a $17,000 p/yr. discount for their Adult kids too go to our Colleges, while all Schools are slashing their budgets and firing Teachers and deleting programs for OUR Children.

Where's the good reason, hello usual Democrat open border supporters in here, that we allow Pres. Hussein Obama to not secure our borders?

Still waiting...

Because in the larger scheme of things and the monumental problems faced by civilization at this particular point in time, illegal immigration is a pretty small fish in the sea, if you ask me. And you did ask, so that's my answer.

You must be a citizen of the world. Get ready when either the mexicans or the muslims integrate you into their new land. I don't think they give a shit about your views of civilization. You might just find out about their cultures.

Check out what the state of Maryland just did. It was a big discussion on Hannity today. Illegals get more benefits than regular U.S. citizens. This is not right. Political Correctness is going to kill this country if it continues un-abated. Yes ! I do know some $ .25 cent words.

Hell, I could come up with some decent arguments that I've heard from from your side of the crazy side.

You forgot to call me a racist.

At least you provide a few laughs.
