OK Unemployment Rate Plummets as Illegals Flee

Prospects are looking brighter for legal citizens of Oklahoma.
*************************************
World Net Daily is reporting that neighboring Oklahoma's unemployment rate has dropped to 3.1 percent. That is about a 25% drop from figures last year before groundbreaking legislation was put in place in that state which led many illegal aliens to self-deport. Unemployment is 5.1 percent and rising nation wide. This data suggests that employers who had been using illegals have been forced by market conditions to offer work to legal residents. Since those residents are liable to spend their money locally rather than wire their savings to Mexico, you can expect even more economic benefits to the Sooner state in the future.

The reason for the self-deportation is clearly a result of Oklahoma's new state law. "The bottom line is illegal aliens will not come here if there are no jobs waiting for them," an Oklahoma official told WND. "They will not stay here if there is no government subsidy, and they certainly won't stay here if they know that if they ever encounter our state and local law enforcement officers, they will be physically detained until they are deported."

It is a pity that our own Governor Mike Beebe continues to insist, in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary, that the presence of illegal aliens in our state is strictly a federal issue and that there is little that the state can or should do. I will continue to believe that Governor Beebe is in the pocket of the poultry industry (and others who lean heavily on illegal aliens) because the evidence screams that he is every time the issue comes up.

Mark, I was wondering if you went to meet with the other NUTS at the Constitutional Party Presidential Nominating Committee last night? It seems as though there was a real slug (and I do mean SLUG) fight last night. Just wondering. JESES SAVE US FROM YOUR FOLLOWERS!

As far as I know, apart from a few kitties, I don't have any followers. I was not at the slugfest, so please give us all the juicy details.
