“Oregonians demand immigration reform, and they expect their state government to take action,” said House Republican Leader Wayne Scott (R-Canby). “House Republicans have an effective agenda for action at the state level. Democrats rejected this agenda, preferring to pass non-binding resolutions that punt the problem to the federal government.”
Added Rep. Thatcher, “Congress is failing to act, and with session coming to an end, the Oregon Legislature has a responsibility to fix our laws that allow illegal aliens to obtain state documents, services and benefits.”
Want a better society? It's what the democrats in Salem want for you. But how to pay?
Well, why not force the insurance companies to pay? Sure! Great idea. And it won't cost the government a dime? Why? Because mandated services are free! Just because I'm an unmarried male doesn't exclude me from the coverage. Because that would be sexist.
