Excuses on Ilegals are DOA

Governor Mike Beebe offered a series of Dead on Arrival excuses for his dogged unwillingness to protect the people of Arkansas from a tidal wave of illegal aliens. As the Governor's of neighboring states like Oklahoma take increasingly effective measures to protect their citizens, we can expect even more displaced illegals to flood our "sanctuary state".

Mike Beebe does not give Tyson Foods and the other big business interests who he serves excuses, he gives them results. It's the little guys who get the steady stream of excuses from Beebe, and we will continue to get them for as long as we accept them.

First Beebe said there was not enough jail space for all of them and that we would have to let rapists and killers free to accommodate them. I don't believe the Governor, especially since not all would be apprehended at once and many would self-deport once our "sanctuary state" status was revoked. Even if he was right, he was asked if he would delay funding preschool and use those moneys to pay the costs associated with enforcing the law regarding illegal aliens. Of course he refused. He said he was not going to "cut" "education" spending. Many of these dollars are not being spent yet. He wants to EXPAND pre-school, and yet somehow not expanding it is redefined as a "cut".

I also take issue with the idea that these are 'education' dollars. This is state sponsored child care. Once again, the corporations want an expanded labor pool to depress wages. They want women in the workforce, not raising their own children in their own home. So they propose taxing families who raise their own children in their own home in order to subsidize those who wish to institutionalize their three year old children in a government facility. That will encourage more women to get out into the workforce, earn dollars and pay more taxes, all the while adding to the labor pool so as to depress wages and salaries. The government wins, the corporations win. The children? Well, they lose big time, but they won't be eligible to vote anytime soon. You can count on Mike Beebe to do what the big corporations want.

When asked by another caller why he did not make it against the law, as in other states, for illegals to obtain state services, Beebe once again said he did not want to "raise your taxes" to enforce the law that the Feds should be enforcing. Hello? By taking pains to get illegals off of government benefits it is likely you are going to SAVE US more money than it costs. A straight answer is that Mike Beebe is willing to raise your taxes in order to continue servicing illegal aliens with state benefits, if that is what it takes to keep certain business interests around here happy.

As long as it's perceived as the government's responsibility to provide health, education, jobs, childcare, and anything and everything that makes us feel safe and prosperous, it's going to be impossible to to hold the government accountable for the way they do business. Too many people have too much at stake.

Mark,

This is off topic for this post but what do you think of Jim Gilchrist endorsing Huckabee.
This ranks up there with Pat Robrtson endorsing Giuliani.

Chris Simcox is head of the real MinuteMen group. Gilchrist is a poser who Simcox has publicly denounced.
