Wake Up Nebraska!

I was reading USA Today on Monday.  Yeah, I’m slow.  There was a section stating what several states were doing to address the problem of illegal immigration.  First of all, let me stress the work ILLEGAL!!!!  As in, not here legally???  As in, not obeying the law????  Can we get this first off before I say anything else???  Thanks! Well, in all the states, they are proposing legislation that will  do things like make sure employers aren’t engaging in ILLEGAL hiring practices and limiting the social programs to only emergency level care, or making sure that proper identification is presented before being able to vote or get a drivers license and sending troops to help secure our borders.  Except Nebraska.  Nebraska’s contribution to the problem of immigration is to allow children of ILLEGAL i to pay instate tuition at the states universities and colleges.  Do the congressmen and senators in Nebraska actually understand what the hell is going on here?  Are they stupid? The funny thing is, it specifically states that if the university sees that you did not graduate from a Nebraska high school and you have lived in the state for more than a year before enrolling, it will use this as criteria to charge you out of state tuition for the duration of your education.  We moved here a year ago and my husband works for the state and will have to pay out of state tuition if he decides to get his Master’s degree.  ILLEGAL immigrants won’t.  WHAT IS THAT ALL ABOUT?

    It is a mixed up situation for sure. Here in Maryland the word is out that illegal aliens can purchase homes, as long as they can come up with the initial cash and then the payments.

    Illegal aliens are working as pickers on the farms (for even less than the poor blacks and whites used to do).

    As for painters, roofers and construction jobs, you better get a Spanish dictionary if you want to talk to them. Illegal aliens work for straight cash that is paid to them at the end of the day, or so I am told.

    Thanks for visiting my Blog.

    I have a number of priests friends in Nebraska, one in Omaha and a whole batch in Lincoln. I have not been out there for years but I loved the flat open spaces. The people were all pretty friendly as well. I hope that has been your experience.

    God bless!

    I love how you stress the word illegal, that right there is the whole point. Just because they really want to be here we should just ignore all our laws.
