Someone ought to check the oxygen level in Shane Jett's office, might be a little low. Must be the case if he wants to legalize illegal workers just in Oklahoma and they are still subject to a federal offense. I could be wrong and he is just catering to the businesses that have been voilating the federal law. How did he get elected? Hold the line Oklahoma , the rest of the nation is watching.

The joke is an idiot like you, suggesting it's ok for us to pay for millions of illegal immigrants who violated the law, and now in many states are getting welfare, medical treatment, etc. This is very irksome when we have millions of legal citizens who are near poverty level, but working or retired who can not qualify for health insurance, because the free hand outs, at taxpayer expense to the poor and illegals has driven up the cost of health care! As for terrotists- Mexico is an open pipeline for anyone wanting to enter the country. Border patrol & farmers have been fired on by Mexican soldiers who were bribed to escort illegals into this country!

"Hit the road, Jack (or better still Jose) and don't come back"! All you blooming idiots who want the illegals to stay, please go to the government and turn over your money and property so YOU can pay for them!

If we have jobs that need filled....and there are no available able citizens to employee... I guess we really don't "need" welfare because evidently the recepients are not in "need" of a job to pay their own way....

you have this right- My daughter and her husband both work have 2 small children, and they can NOT get any health benefits on their children, they are not offered health insurance at work, and do not make enough to afford it otherwise. These illegals are getting all these benefits. You tell me what is fair here.

Boo hoo, send them home. THE "working class" legal Americans are fed up with the illegal's coming in stealing ID's/SS # getting the Anchor Baby delivered. Then getting all the free Federal, State, and Local handouts. Not that the working class wants an handout but I am personally tired of seeing hispanic moma's with their kids on the WIC, Foodstamps, AFDC and then they go out to the big nice ride because their BABIES DADDY works under the table.(Yes, I know there is others that abuse the system.) But my goodness does the middle class have to carry them as well. I am tired of the "STEP ON ME" printed on the top of Middle Class Legal Americans! Not Racist either just tired of being Stepped on!

Mexican Terrorists? How about the MS-13 (Malvito's) gang that "terrorize" neighborhoods, or are you being tunnel-visioned only to believe terrorists blow up buildings & hijack airplanes?

"Jose and Esperanza Becerra, both 38, hope he succeeds.

The Tulsa couple came to Oklahoma from Mexico illegally, Jose 10 years ago and his wife five years ago. They were drawn here "because it was a pretty state and there was work," Jose says.

Since 1804 passed, the Becerras have closed their bank account and put their home on the market, just in case they are forced to leave quickly or against their will. "Since the law went into effect," Esperanza says, "we are in fear every day." "

Illegal aliens should NOT able to get a bank account without a VALID SSN.... or BUY a home... we wouldn't have near the problem..... they ought to enforce 1804 in ALL states. Then they would have to go back, and wouldn't be able to "flee to neighboring states"... Good for Oklahoma. The media is exaggerating the negative effects anyway.... it's part of their liberal agenda.

Let's ship them all back we have been giving illegals to much as it is. Do we all need a lesson to remember what the word illegal means? They have been breaking the laws for a long time with no consequences, it's about time they are held accountable. Here is a history lesson..The amendment that gives a person citizen ship if they are born here was written in the 1800's to give citizenship to the slaves children, children whose parents were forced to come here. I have never heard of anyone forcing them (illegal immagrants) to cross the borders to the USA yet. We are losing our country to these people. There are so many here that it makes you feel as if we are being invaded, which is something that our government also swore to protect us from.

No Federal convictions, Since the Federal Govt won't prosecute these illegals, Then there should be no other Federal laws enforced. Get on these juries and "toss out' any Charge against American citizens (except murder Rape or against children.
Make the Federal Courts unable to convict JUST the laws against Americans.

More Americans have been killed by illegal aliens (murders, dui accidents, etc.) since 9/11 than we lost on 9/11. Just MS-13 is responsible for hundreds! There are hundreds of thousands of illegal gang bangers terrorizing the areas they are in.

That is not a good comparison. Middle eastern business owners are legal immigrants or have legal work Visa
's. Legal workers from anywhere are welcome.

Lets get one thing straight. These are not immigrants. They are Illegal Alien Criminals. They broke the law coming here and breaking the law working here illegally. That's why they ran. I have no sympathy for criminals who break the law. Deport all Illegal Aliens and their Anchor Babies.
