Missouri has no illegals; go figure... shouldn't the other states do the same? Missouri's approach to the problem of illegal immigration appears to be more advanced, sophisticated, strict and effective than anything to date in Arizona . Does the White House appreciate what Missouri has done? So, why doesn't Missouri receive attention? Answer: There are no illegals in Missouri to demonstrate.  (And the Media doesn't want to publicize that fact!)

The "Show Me" state has again shown us how it should be done. There needs to be more publicity and exposure regarding what Missouri has done. Please pass this around.

In 2007, Missouri placed on the ballot a proposed constitutional amendment designating English as the official language of Missouri In November, 2008, nearly 90% voted in favor! Thus, English became the official language for ALL governmental activity in Missouri . No individual has the right to demand government services in a language OTHER than English.

In 2008, a measure was passed that required the Missouri Highway Patrol and other law enforcement officials to verify the immigration status of any person arrested, and inform federal authorities if the person is found to be in Missouri illegally. Missouri law enforcement officers receive specific training with respect to enforcement of federal immigration laws.

In Missouri, illegal immigrants do NOT have access to taxpayer benefits such as food stamps or health care through Missouri Health NET.

In 2009, a measure was passed that ensures Missouri 's public institutions of higher education do NOT award financial aid to individuals who are illegally in the United States .

In Missouri all post-secondary institutions of higher education are required to annually certify to the Missouri Dept. of Higher Education that they have NOT knowingly awarded financial aid to students who are unlawfully present in the United States .

It is important to remember, Missouri has been far more proactive in addressing this horrific problem. Missouri has made it clear that illegal immigrants are NOT WELCOME in the state and they will NOT receive public benefits at the expense of Missouri taxpayers.

can the uk & oz do the same?
Sadly Sky, there's a doubt.

Quote:Claims About Missouri’s Approach to Illegal Immigration-Truth!

'Summary of eRumor:
A viral email alleges that Missouri doesn’t have problems with illegal immigration because state lawmakers
have passed a number of bills aimed at cracking down on illegal immigrants. People are asking if Missouri
is the smartest state in the nation.
The Truth:
This eRumor is true and was taken from an editorial written by Republican State Rep. Nita Jane Ayres. It was
published by the Ozarks Sentinel on May 13, 2009. The allegation that this state has no undocumented immigrants
is fiction.

The Missouri General Assembly placed a constitutional referendum on the ballot in 2007 that designated English
as the state’s primary language. The state legislature also got a measure signed into law in 2008 that required
Missouri Highway State Patrol officers to check the immigration status of people who were pulled over.

It’s also true that lawmakers in Missouri have made illegal immigrants ineligible for state-sponsored health care
and food stamp programs, according to Legal Services of Missouri. Illegal immigrants are also ineligible for
financial aid in Missouri.

The eRumor’s claim that there are no illegal immigrants in Missouri is false, but the state does have one of the
lowest populations of illegal immigrants in the country.
According to 2010 U.S. Census data, there were about 55,000 illegal immigrants in Missouri, which was less
than 1 percent of the state’s population...'

But... it's not too-wrong!
