TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Some Tulsa area schools are seeing Hispanic students leaving as a state law targeting illegal immigrants is about to go into effect.

Principal Judy Feary at Kendall-Whittier Elementary says some students are seen getting into packed cars pulling a moving trailer and they don't return to class.

She says some are heading back to Mexico while others are going to other states. And she says school officials are hearing others are planning to leave in October.

A law passed earlier this year takes effect Nov. 1 which requires law officers to check the immigration status of people they arrest on felony and drunken-driving charges. The law is also intended to prevent illegal immigrants from getting jobs and many public benefits.

I am sure they are treated with dignity. You get stopped, you are asked if you are a citizen, you show your proof and life goes on......easy. When I lived in Canada I was asked twice by an officer if I was a citizen and did I have my papers. I showed him my papers and all was well. What is the problem with acting lawful?

Well, Texas had better get off its butt and pass some decent anti-illegal immigration laws. If people are fleeing Oklahoma over this, they'll likely come here, as if we don't have enough!

Fabulous! Now if ICE would just man the ways in and out of town they could nab them and deport them before they settle in some other nice American town.

Hurray! Keep them on the run until they find it a lot easier to run back across the border.

More news about this subject.

Author of state immigration law says it appears to be working

TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Authors of Oklahoma's tough new law targeting illegal immigrants say reports that Hispanic children are leaving Tulsa Public Schools indicates the law's working.

Sen. James Williamson of Tulsa says the purpose of the law was to reduce the number of illegal immigrants in Oklahoma because it's costing taxpayers a lot of money to educate them.

Rep. Randy Terrill of Moore says officials estimate that illegal immigrants cost the state about $200 million annually in increased education, health, welfare and corrections costs.
