VITAL LEGISLATION FOR HOMEOWNERS

IRON FLYER GIVEN TO LEGISLATORS –
Oklahoma Education Association is actively seeking to tax people out of their homes by lobbying legislators with taxpayer funds (that is all they get – taxpayer funds).
OEA is greedily attempting to kill this legislation that will bring tax relief to thousands of property owners, many who have no job.
MORE money, MORE overhead, MORE programs
is not the solution to their problems!
$11,250 per-pupil expenditure in 2003
source: Oklahoma Council of Public Affairs K-12 grades
OEA needs to spend their time plugging the “DROPOUT EPIDEMIC” as they call it. Bring high school students up to minimum 10th grade levels in reading, writing, and arithmetic to give them hope of succeeding in life. Begin in FIRST GRADE!
County Commissioners seek to stop this legislation - SHAME ON THEM!
County officials need to trim their budget, use their resources, materials and machinery in their districts wisely by tightening your budget 10% off their costs. You Expect the Taxpayer to do it.
You can only bite the hand that feeds you so long
then the hand has nothing more to give.

Texas, Utah BILLS TO SURPASS OKLAHOMA‘S HB 1804….great great great
On Thursday, February 26, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott issued a legal opinion that concluded that a proposed state law that would suspend the business license of any employer that hires illegal aliens would be constitutional under federal law. The AG found that the legislation proposed in Texas – which closely mirrors an Arizona law – does not conflict with the federal government’s constitutional role in immigration matters. (Office of the Attorney General of Texas, February 26, 2009; The Dallas Morning News, February 27, 2009). The legislation is currently pending in the Texas state legislature and, if passed, would provide the state with additional enforcement measures to ensure employers are not hiring illegal aliens, but instead hire only workers who are authorized to work in the United States.

No excuses to hide behind now.
AG: State can ban sanctuary cities
Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott issued an opinion today giving lawmakers the go-ahead to prohibit cities from becoming so-called “sanctuary cities.
“State Rep. Frank Corte, R-San Antonio, had asked Abbott whether legislators could prohibit cities from adopting policies that prevent local authorities from cooperating with federal authorities on immigration enforcement. ANY city that has adopted the “Major Cities Chief Policy” IS a sanctuary city.
( Both Oklahoma City and Tulsa Mayors and Councils and Police Departments have adopted this policy, they have given the procedures to law enforcers and THAT is why you see Police Departments useless when called about Hispanic Criminal Bahavior!)
Some lawmakers want to require cities to enforce immigration laws or risk losing state funding for certain programs. In his opinion, Abbott wrote that since federal law preempts city policies, any sanctuary policy a municipality adopts would be moot anyway.
“The Texas Legislature (OR any other State) is not prohibited from adopting some form of legislation designed to compel local governments to comply with any duties they may have under federal immigration laws, so long as such legislation is not inconsistent with federal law,” Abbott concluded.

OKLAHOMA CITY —
The Virginia-based Citizens in Charge Foundation on Tuesday named state Sen. Randy Brogdon and Rep. Randy Terrill as the March 2009 recipients of the John Lilburne Award.
The two state legislators were recognized for their efforts to make it easier for Oklahomans to place state questions on the ballot.
The award is named in honor of the 17th Century English pamphleteer and political activist who pioneered the use of petitioning and referenda for redress against government power and abuse.

In Case you missed it. ICE Involvement in Oklahoma.
Aircraft forfeiture sought following marijuana smuggling seizure at Tulsa airport
ICE and Tulsa County Sheriff’s 287(g) Task Force team up to make the arrest and seizure
TULSA, Okla. — Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office (TCSO) filed with the county District Attorney’s Office on Wednesday to request civil forfeiture of an aircraft seized last week during a joint marijuana smuggling arrest with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
ICE agents and TCSO’s “287(g)” Task Force arrested Robert Parsons Bentley Jr. Feb. 13 on state felony charges of trafficking in marijuana. This arrest occurred after more than 28 pounds of the narcotic was discovered in a duffle bag in his aircraft after it landed at Tulsa International Airport. Bentley is from Big Pine Key, Fla.
The aircraft was observed flying in a suspicious manner, according to the Air and Marine Operations Center (AMOC), which is under U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). AMOC reported this information to ICE, which dispatched the Tulsa 287(g) Task Force to the Tulsa airport. Bentley had already left the airport for a Tulsa area hotel when the Task Force arrived. TCSO’s K-9 unit also responded, and the dog alerted to the presence of a controlled substance in the aircraft. By 4 a.m.
Feb. 13, the 287(g) Task Force secured a state search warrant for the aircraft and discovered the
duffle bag filled with 28½ pounds of marijuana, which has a street value of about $17,100. The
Task Force later arrested Bentley in his hotel room.
“This was a great team effort from all three law enforcement agencies involved,” said James Delia, resident agent in charge of the ICE Office of Investigations in Oklahoma City. “The expertise, resources and law enforcement authority of each agency made quick work of this investigation to secure a search warrant and arrest.” Delia oversees the State of Oklahoma.
“Our Community is safer because of our relationship with ICE and the agents who are assigned to Tulsa, as well as the utilization of the 287(g) Program,” said Tulsa County Sheriff Stanley Glanz.
The seized aircraft targeted for civil forfeiture is a Cessna twin-engine 310 built in 1960. According to the Sheriff’s Office, it’s worth between $20,000 and $40,000 depending on the availability of its engine-service log books. Although it’s not a relatively expensive aircraft, its forfeiture will prevent it from being used for future drug smuggling operations.

Bentley was released on $25,000 bond late on Feb. 13. He is criminally charged with trafficking in narcotics, a state felony. His trial is date has not yet been determined.
TCSO established its 287(g) Task Force in August 2007. After a signed memorandum of
understanding between TCSO and ICE, and a five-week training program, Task Force members are authorized to enforce immigration laws. However, as this case demonstrates, the cooperation
between agencies extends to areas outside immigration issues.
# ICE #
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) was established in March 2003 as the largest investigative arm of the Department of Homeland Security. ICE is comprised of five integrated divisions that form a 21st century law
enforcement agency with broad responsibilities for a number of key homeland security priorities.
Our Borders are open, our Congress is asleep, our President’s cabinet does not appear to care, our citizens are outraged at stimulus bailouts, corporate greed, lies and hypocrisy in political parties. OUR CITIZENS are our only hope. God Bless, we appreciate all your calls, e-mails and letters to Legislators.
