Mark Twain said, ‘Suppose you were an idiot; and suppose you were a member of Congress…but of course, I repeat myself.’
Coloradans find themselves undermined by state Senator Chris Romer and Governor Bill Ritter. Both intend to force
Colorado taxpayers to pay for illegal alien children with in-state college tuition. Not only would illegal alien students grab college slots from legal
Colorado’s laws by remaining within the
United States against federal statutes. Additionally, they cannot work inside the
USA legally. All that after Coloradans paid for tens of thousands of illegal alien children in grades K-12!
citizens, they undermine
In an alert by Federal Immigration Reform and Enforcement Coalition (www.FireCoalition.com), members received notice that, according to Gregory and Pam Williams, ‘Colorado Governor Ritter Conspires to Commit Felony and Betray His Oath of Office.’
‘Colorado Governor Bill Ritter needs to read his ‘employee handbook,’ Williams said. ‘Patriotic Americans more readily refer to it as the U.S. Constitution, but in the case of Ritter, he apparently needs to be reminded of the employer/employee relationship that exists between ‘We the people’ and the people we elect.’
Tim Hoover of the Denver Post, wrote an article published
March 13, 2009, titled, ‘Ritter would sign in-state tuition bill for illegal immigrants.’ Governor Ritter said he would sign Senate Bill 170 into law.
On a recent interview with Peter Boyles, KHOW 630 AM, the talk show host asked the bill’s sponsor Senator Chris Romer, ‘Would you like to have a woman move into your house, have a baby and ask you to take care of all her bills as well as educate her child(ren) and then, be asked to pay their way into college?’
Like a slippery eel, like a snake in the grass, like a can of worms—Romer, whom the Indians might have called, ‘One with forked tongue’, dodged Boyles’ bullet questions like Keanu Reeves in the movie, ‘The Matrix.’
Williams added, ‘Ritter needs to be reminded we are a nation of laws, not a nation of men, whim, or policy based on popularity. Governor Ritter needs also to be reminded that granting in-state tuition to illegal aliens is ‘aiding and abetting’, which is a felony…I didn’t write the Constitution, and neither did Ritter or Romer, but we did all take an oath at one time to uphold and defend the Constitution. While my active duty service has been honorably discharged, their active commitment to ‘We the people’ has not expired.’
Are Ritter and Romer breaking federal immigration laws? The answer: a resounding, yes! According to USC 8, Sec. 1324, 274, 275, 276, 277, it is a federal offence to ‘aid, abet, house, transport, provide housing or in any way assist an illegal alien to remain within the
United States no matter what your personal convictions.’
‘You can’t ignore parts of the Constitution you don’t agree with, in the hopes that others will honor the parts that you do agree with, without marginalizing the entire fabric of our country,’ Williams said. ‘Why does Ritter think illegal aliens deserve the jobs
Colorado has to offer more than the legal citizens and legal aliens? Who does Ritter represent? You or the illegal aliens, or the prominent business leaders who profit from flooding a job market with excessive amounts of job seekers in a down-turn economy? Who wins?’
Somehow lost to Ritter and Romer, our legal workforce loses because wages fall as the supply of workers rises. Big business profits from paying slave wages. Criminal aliens send money back home while working off the books and using state services into the billions of dollars. That doesn’t help
Colorado or the
‘If you think we have an illegal alien crime problem now,’ said Williams. ‘Just wait until SB 170 becomes law.
Colorado’s magnetism as a sanctuary for illegal alien activity will increase not just the studious, but the drug cartels, and the violent criminals that will flood
Williams continued, ‘Waving the white flag of surrender, betraying one’s oath, allegiance, and the debt to the tens of thousands of Americans who fought and died over the past few centuries securing his ‘liberty and freedom’ shouldn’t be Ritter’s first choice.’
Colorado House member Joe Miklosi introduced a companion bill. He argued the cost of deporting illegals would be too much. He failed to comprehend that ‘attrition through enforcement’ works. By enforcing our laws, illegals self-deport. Again, refer to Mark Twain’s wisdom, ‘Suppose you were an idiot; and suppose you were a member of Congress, ah, but I repeat myself.’
‘Ritter needs to know that if he will support law enforcement through programs like 287 G, SB 1023, business by reducing taxes, and the children of Colorado’s legal population–that school costs will fall, crime will drop, unemployment will fall, and he will be adored by all as a champion of ‘We the people.’
Romer and Ritter form a unique disconnect with our laws and our citizens. They must decide whether they represent legal Coloradan citizens or advocate for more illegality. It’s men like Ritter, Romer and Miklosi that abrogated their personal accountability to our laws at the federal level that created the mess inside of
Colorado and the
United States in the first place.
‘With rare exception, citizens of
Colorado and national leadership are OUTRAGED!’ said Williams.
Thomas Jefferson would speak to Ritter and Romer, ‘I know of no safe depositor of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them, but to inform their discretion.’
