Do your fine readers realize that the State of Missouri has had the basic prvisions of our SB1070 on the books starting in 2007? Google"neprimer nita jane ayres" to see the text of legislation that does the following. 2007: English is the official language in Missouri (90% voter approval); 2008: Highway Patrol ask anyone arrested about their immigration status and inform federal officials, allow officers to receive US immigration law enforcement training and no taxpayer benefits (food stamps, health care, etc) allowed to illegal immigrants; 2009: no financial aid to illegal immigrants in colleges in MO. Why hasn't Obama sued Missouri in federal court over these blatant violations of immigrants' "rights"? I guess AZ made the mistake of trying to accomplish all this in just one bill.
