Jerry Kilgore expressed opposition to proposed taxpayer-funded day laborer centers. Lets look at what was said.
- “Legal immigration made this country what it is today,” Kilgore said. “We honor legal immigrants when we ensure that our laws are followed. I don’t think it is too much to ask that people obey the laws of our society before they take advantage of what our society has to offer. To reward illegal behavior is to encourage that behavior and it demeans those who have followed the rules to come to
Jerry has a problem with the centers as do I because illegal immigrants will use them.
- Kilgore said that if guarantees could be installed at the centers to ensure that illegal immigrants were not provided with taxpayer supported assistance, he would support the proposals. To this point, however, screening immigrants based on legal status is not emerging in the plans.
The press and the Raising Kaine crew are on this story saying Kilgore is "anti immigrant."
Reading the Raising Kaine post I found they left out one word. ILLEGAL. Pretty important word to leave out. If you read Kilgores comments then read Lowell's post, you will see how far off base it is. About normal for them. Why not screen them?
