Skip to comments.Minn. Group Wants Ariz.-Style Immigration Reform
Posted on 04/27/2010 9:53:40 AM PDT by ButThreeLeftsDo
The crackdown on illegal immigration in Arizona heated up Monday. Some vandals smeared refried beans in the shape of swastikas on the state Capitol's windows. Last weekend there were dozens of protests.
The Arizona law would require police officers to check the immigration status of anyone they suspect may be an undocumented immigrant. If they can't prove citizenship, they could be arrested. The law takes effect in three months.
There is at least one group in Minnesota pushing for the same kind of law. Minnesotans Seeking Immigration Reform said Minnesota lawmakers should move forward under state rights with a similar initiative.
Dan McGrath is the Executive Director of a group called Minnesota Majority.
"I'm in favor of immigration, immigration built this nation, but it has to be orderly and measured to some extent. We don't want drug dealers, gangsters, human traffickers coming across the border with impunity," said McGrath.
His group says illegal immigrants cost Minnesota taxpayers $180 million to 340 million per year. But that number varies depending on who you ask.

“...Some vandals smeared refried beans in the shape of swastikas on the state Capitol’s windows...”
I doubt those were re-fried beans (and who did the sensory experiment necessary to confirm it?) but the more likely substance that was smeared would not fit the MSM narrative....
Maybe it was refried beans at one time.
Half of Somalia lives there.
Yer tellin’ me??
They get an E for Effort in trying.
got to plant the seed sometime.

Illegal immigrants increasingly go north
NUEVO LAREDO, Mexico (Reuters) - Illegal immigrants from Latin America are heading deeper into the United States to find work and avoid deportation as crackdowns in border states like Texas and Arizona make life more difficult for them.

Governor T-Paw has not commented on this that I know of.
And who smeared what on Tawana Brawley? wasn’t that Al Sharpton ,too ?
The state that stood idly by and did NOTHING while watching Al Franken-stan steal the senate election wnats what??
It is to laugh!!!
Minnesota has a gazillion Somalians and they hate America with a passion. The small town where I attended high school has been pretty much turned over to them. The one factory in town where everyone worked employs around 1000 people and is now 95% Somalis. My SIL who is one of the few Americans who still works there said when they come into work and are all gathered in one room, they are so dark, they take the light out of the room.
Minnesota has a very high number of Muslims. Lots of them from Somalia.
This could get really interesting.
See my post #5......
maybe you can tell me... who the heck brought all the Somali’s to Minne.?
I can’t imagine they threw a dart at a map...
Thanks for the laugh. I’ve needed a good laugh for the longest time!
I don’t really know for sure but Minnesota has a lot of meat processing plants. They seem to congregate in the towns where the plants are. And these towns are very eager to please them. I have no idea why.
