HB 1525 Sponsor Confuses Metaphors

In Elliot’s totally emotionally based statement she says, "I remember ever so clearly what it felt like to have the big boot of the government on my back, and I was a mere child," she said. "For these kids today {illegal foreigners’ kids}, it is not a memory; it's a way of life. They are living with the boot of the government on their back, and it's not fair because they've done nothing wrong.” She totally confuses racism with nationalism; legal citizenship and immigration with illegal trafficking; injustice with lawlessness.

In this case the boot of government is actually being put on the back and neck of all the law abiding tax paying citizens, and also snubs and mocks legal immigrants who have done what was legally required. It forces its law abiding citizens, many who cannot afford to send their own children to college, to pay for illegal non-citizen’s kid’s to go to college instead or regardless of their own plights. This is required without their consent or approval and to their own hurt and their own diminished future hopes and dreams as a consequence of the government favoring those who are breaking the law over and above those who keep them. - Pam Manard

You're right. This is the state government aiding and abetting a Federal Felon with taxpayer money. Go one step further.....if the taxpayer were caught doing the same, they would have to pay a price.

BUT THE BIG THING IS................


This is not a time for some disingenous emotional you said racism is not the same as an illegal alien, a FEDERAL FELON. Wouldn't the emotion be better spent on concentrating on what the state can do for it's own citizens????

This is once again a demonstration of how terrible the legislators are doing in Little Rock. They should be ashamed that they even proposed violating Federal Law. They seem to fall prey to whatever current "politically correct" demagoguery is blowing in the wind.

Well said, all. Sadly, our Republican (whatever that label means nowadays) governor is spearheading this whole thing with the rationale that if we don't educate these illegal aliens, they're more likely to become criminals (as if they're not already) and therefore a greater debit to our society.

Governor Huckabee is showing his hand here. He has no intention of doing anything to enforce or to aid in the enforcement of our immigration laws. In his mind, we'd just better get used to illegal aliens saturating our state and roll out the red carpet for them and the others who will flock here for all the taxpayer funded benefits.

Just a pre-emptive warning: Don't expect Rockefeller as governor to do anything other than the status-quo with respect to this issue...
