OK KO'ed For Now
Judge Overrules Will of People, Elected Officials

Lou Dobbs Tonight -- CNN -- June 6  

Randy Terrill: ...The reason I'm disappointed, Lou, is, obviously it isn't the result we had hoped for. It will unnecessarily prolong this litigation and almost certainly guarantee an appeal to the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals and possibly on to the U.S. Supreme Court. And also, frankly, this decision is troubling, is why I'm disappointed, it conflicts with recent rulings in other cases, most notably in Missouri and Arizona and even here in the northern district in Tulsa where there was a similar challenge brought against this rule -- against this bill. But, the reason I'm not surprised is because Judge Robin Cauthron, who issued this opinion, is perhaps the most liberal judge in the Western district of Oklahoma.
Dobbs: So, you're confident that you'll win on appeal. I just want to point out to our viewers here, that this legislation passed the Oklahoma House By a margin of 88-9, it passed the Senate by a margin of 41-6. The governor signed it into law in May of last year. What has been the impact of the legislation?
Terrill: Well, it's had a tremendous impact. Obviously, illegal aliens began leaving the state of Oklahoma, even before the law was passed. And Lou, I think there is no more glaring example of the success of this legislation then the fact that Oklahoma's unemployment is running several percentage points below the national average. And obviously there are a lot of things that at play there, but one of them is House Bill 1804.
