      >Santa Ana, California, Jan 16 (EFE).- The California Coalition for
      >Immigration Reform launched a state-wide campaign against illegal
      >immigration, hoping post-Sept. 11 concerns will renew interest in its
      >initiative. Coalition president Barbara Coe told the press Tuesday that the
      >new measure, known as the "Homeland Security Initiative," is aimed at
      >stripping illegal immigrants' access to public services.
      >The group's initiative, a modified version of Proposition 187, proposes
      >amending the California Constitution.
      >Coe helped pass Proposition 187 in 1994, but the proposal was later
      >suspended by the courts as unconstitutional and eliminated by Gov. Grey
      >The new measure would force public officials to check the legal status of
      >everyone applying for social benefits.
      >Under the proposal, all illegal immigrants who apply for public benefits
      >would be arrested on the spot and transferred to the custody of the
      >Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS).
      >Coe told the Orange County Register she is collecting signatures to put the
      >Homeland Security Initiative to a vote in the next state elections.
      >The difference between Proposition 187 and the Homeland Security Initiative
      >is that the latter was reviewed by five attorneys, including two
      >in constitutional law, Coe noted.
      >Harold Martin, a member of the California Coalition for Immigration Reform,
      >told the daily that Mexican immigrants want "to overthrow our culture, our
      >way of life."
      >"Their objectives are no different than Osama bin Laden's," Martin said.
