INCREDIBLE SHRINKING COLORADO GOVERNOR BILL OWENS
�It�s a sad day in America when law makers side with law breakers against law abiding citizens.� African-American Ezola Foster
Two weeks ago, after hearing 28 Colorado citizens speak in favor of Representative David Schultheis� H.B. 1271, which prohibits illegal aliens from gaining taxpayer benefits�Democrat Terrance Carroll stood up and announced that all 28 men and women in favor of upholding the law�were racists.
Quite a few of those who spoke were grandmothers and grandfathers in their 70�s. Carroll, an African-American, somehow �knew� they were racists because they supported the rule of law. He purported they were �racists� because they asked their representatives to abide by their oath of office to stand for Coloradans. They were �racists� because they didn�t want their tax dollars paying for federal criminals who broke into America against our laws. They were �racists� because they expressed their First Amendment rights.
Of the seven who spoke against the bill, two were hospital administrators who didn�t want to report on those they served who resided in Colorado illegally. When asked who they billed for unpaid services by illegals, hospital administrator Hudson said, �We bill the State of Colorado.� In other words, he doesn�t mind making us pay for 250,000 illegal aliens using our hospitals, but he�s upset that he might have to report that fact. With his perspective, California suffered 24 hospitals bankrupting in 2004. They failed because three million illegal aliens in California use hospitals without paying. After those hospitals bankrupted, American citizens lost their medical care.
ACLU spokeswoman, Cathy Hazouri, said that the bill was an invasion of privacy for illegal aliens. It�s okay that illegals invaded our country but it�s not okay that we invade their privacy. That makes a lot of sense! Another woman said the bill would create fear in the immigrants, but refused to say they were illegal aliens. If you were there, you might think you were hearing rationalizations from nut cases on Judge Judy.
If you rob a bank, you fear jail. If you cheat on an exam, you fear being flunked. If you broke into America illegally, you fear deportation. If you are a legal immigrant, you have no fear whatsoever.
Last month, writer Terry Graham exposed Governor Bill Owens for endorsing and promoting a booklet welcoming illegal aliens into Colorado. Owens boldly showed illegal aliens how to find employment, gain free medical services, avoid deportation and send money back to Mexico in his �Guide to the Mexican Migrant.� The problem--Owens stands in violation of federal laws: USC 8, Section 1324, 274, 275, 276 and 277. He was touted as the best governor in America in the September 2, 2002, National Review, John J. Miller, �America�s Best Governor: For Republicans�A Rocky Mountain High�Bill Owens.� Ironically, he serves illegal aliens better than citizens of Colorado.
Speakers for the bill included Dr. William Herron of www.defendcoloradonow.com. He offered persuasive reasons for passing the bill. He moved to Colorado from Los Angeles because of crime, loss of English, gridlock, drugs and chaos of that city. �We�re driving Colorado into the same nightmare as Los Angeles if we continue this magnet of freebies for illegal aliens in Colorado�does anyone here want Colorado to add a million illegal aliens?�
One speaker attempted to show the committee the crisis from the standpoint of other states. He said, �At one time, California suffered 250,000 illegal aliens, but today, they have three million. Arizona follows with 500,000 illegal aliens and their hospitals are in financial crisis. Arizona approved Proposition 200 to stop illegals from gaining services for which they have no business gaining. Virginia�s House and Senate passed the same kind of bill a week ago. Idaho gathers its forces to stop illegals. Iowa passed a bill to stop illegals from gaining driver�s licenses. Arkansas moves toward its own bill to stop illegals from receiving services they do not warrant. Let�s face it; they are illegally in our country. They are federal criminals that can be deported.�
Representative David Schultheis showed the committee a Colorado poll showing 80 percent of voters approved of H.B. 1271. According to Carroll, they�re all racists. Never mind that Arizona is overrun with 500,000 illegal aliens while suffering 57,000 car thefts per year and has become the drug route of choice. They passed Proposition 200, which according to Carroll, they must be racists. Never mind that California with 3.1 million illegals looks like the Titanic sinking with $38 billion in debt. Never mind California�s exploding crime, schools in chaos, air pollution and gridlock along with a state cost of $9.2 million for illegals using schools, welfare, education and medical facilities. Never mind that 24 hospitals and ER wards bankrupted in California last year. They passed Proposition 187. They must be racists.
Contrary to Carroll�s racist charges, African American Terry Anderson supports H.B. 1271. African American Ezola Foster supports it. Hispanics Haydee Pavia and Priscilla Espinoza support H.B. 1271. Are they racists?
In 1994, the U.S. Commission on Immigration Reform, chaired by highly-regarded African-American Representative Barbara Jordan, famously stated "...it is both a right and a responsibility of a democratic society to manage immigration so that it serves the national interest."
According to Terrance Carroll in Colorado, Barbara Jordan must be a racist!
It�s a sad day in Colorado when lawmakers like Terrance Carroll call law abiding Coloradans who participated with reasoned speeches as �racists.� It�s a pathetic moment in history when a sitting governor breaks federal laws in favor of federal criminals from foreign countries. It�s a sad day in Colorado when those who are elected to represent us; instead, represent illegality, growing crime, growing educational chaos and the loss of the rule of law.
