OK is Now OK Again
Citizens Save A State

Tulsa Beacon -- May 15  

Sensible immigration laws
    Hundreds of illegal aliens have left Oklahoma and gone to other states or back to their country of origin.
    That's what should have happen. It's a shame that state legislators have to pass laws that mirror federal laws because the Bush Administration won't enforce our national boundaries.
    As a result of HB 1804, Oklahoma has the lowest unemployment rate in the nation. The argument that illegals are doing work that Americans won't do is being proven wrong in Oklahoma.
    Americans won't do jobs when they are paid slave wages under unbearable conditions but they will mow lawns, work at fast-food restaurants and roof houses.
    While the liberal media (see Tulsa World) keeps cranking out sob stories about parents who came here illegally and have now been forced to return to their home country, the immigrants who came here legally and kept the rules can hold their heads high. Which is the better lesson for the children of immigrants – breaking the law or working hard to keep the rules?
