SPEAK out - Immigration Control - Emerging Police State.

The progressive media is finally paying more attention to the emerging police state in light of immigration crackdowns in Postville, Iowa and the Washington Post report on the (mis)treatment of immigrant detainees. Joshua Holland provides a good summation in his article of the actions carried out by the enforcers of immigration law, actions that were in violation of worker’s constitutional rights and due process of law.

Well, no the Arkansas Governor wasn't defending their right. He just goofed up by saying that instate tuition for undocumented students was against the 14th Amendment EPC--a legal opinion he wrote as AG in 2005. And the news was all over the Arkansas media that instate-tuition for undocumented students was unconstitutional. I was like huh? so I went over the legal opinion and it turns out he wrote the opposite. And now I am pouring over all the courts decisions about instate tuition -- cases like Day v. Selebius ... each and every case upholds it. The anti-migrant crowd don't stand a chance in courts.

Sorry for the mistake.

I believe it was brought up here as well - in Iowa. It makes no sense to me to deny anyone an affordable education - especially those who actively seek it.

Thanks for the correction.
