With the recent passage of the Oklahoma illegal alien legislation HB 1804, Kansas can expect an influx of illegal aliens as they flee Oklahoma in an effort to avoid being arrested and deported back to Mexico.
HB 1804, the Oklahoma Taxpayers and Citizens Protection Act of 2007, became effective as of November 1, 2007 and illegal aliens will be making a bee line for Kansas which is , for all intents and purposes, a sanctuary state. Even though the 2007 legislature passed the “English Only” bill HB2140, it was watered down and does not require English only. To see text of HB 2140 go to www.kslegislature.org/bills/2008/2140.pdf Despite efforts to the contrary in-state tuition for illegal aliens legislation was passed a few years ago but thankfully a push for drivers licenses for illegals was thwarted.
2008 IS THE YEAR FOR CHANGE ! As of the month of December 2007 new legislation is being written based on Oklahoma HB1804 ! (To find out about Oklahoma HB1804 go to www.okiron.org and click on HB1804 summary.) The Kansas bill will be prefiled before the 2008 Legislative session begins on January 14.
