Border Wars Colorado Eyes Arizona's Prop 200 To Stop Illegals
By Michael Conniff, 10-04-05
How bad has the battle over illegal immigration become? Three Colorado state
legislators are in Arizona today, patrolling the Mexican border with the
Minutemen civilian militia group. The mission for the legislators: to see
just how bad things might get if nothing is done about illegal immigrants.
Led by David Schultheis, a Republican from Colorado Springs, the
lawmakers are also in Arizona to study the value of bringing Proposition 200the
measure passed by voters in Arizona last year to stop healthcare and
welfare services for immigrantsand they are considering additional measures to
make it illegal for illegals to buy property in the state. Under the plan
scheduled for introduction in the next session of the Colorado
legislature, people who work in the food business would also have to produce a photo
ID and fingerprints.
The passage of such a measure would have a profound impact on Aspen,
Snowmass, and other towns in the Roaring Fork Valley, where Mexican
immigrantslegal and illegalhave become the backbone of the work
force, supplanting the prototypical and historical ski bums with people who
eschew the slopes as they pursue the American dream.
The implications of the visit by the legislators Schultheis and two
other Republicans, Bill Crane of Arvada and Jim Welker of Loveland is
potentially profound, according to coverage in The Denver Post. Arizona State
Representative Russell Pearce has also been approached by legislators
in other states, including Alabama, Idaho, Oklahoma, and Utah. "We must
secure the borders," Pearce told reporter Elizabeth Aguilera. "You simply have
to know who is coming in," Pearce said. "I don't blame those folks seeking
a better way of life. I blame our government for failing to ... secure
our borders."To visit:To RSS ( Really Simple Syndication)To subscribe:or
