Oklahoma may think that these news laws are going to work in it favour but we will see. First of all I seriously doubt they will ever even be enforced but let's pretend that they are and the Mexicans flee the state in droves. First of all, the Mexican population in the adjacent states will go through the roof. Next, the farmers will be the first to complain about the fact that they cannot find any harvest help and that the crops will rot in the fields prompting a doubling or more the price of things grown in Oklahoma. Secondly the people in the cities will be paying double when they go to McDonalds or Burger King and may even find the drive thru closed because the industry cannot find enough help and the help it does find is being paid $12 or more an hour so they can keep employees. Housing cost will go sky high because there are no Mexican labourers to build them anymore and- should you need a new roof or siding- it is now going to cost you triple what it did last year because the roofers have had to double pay scales to attract Americans and the Americans often do not show up for work or show up drunk, take smoke breaks all day and complain about the heat. And they are 30% less productive than the Mexicans the company used to employ. And you might get a phone call one day and be told to come and pick up granny from the local nursing home because they are closing because they cannot hire any Americans that want to go in there and feet granny and clean up her bed when she craps. So if you all think this is a good thing, we will see. IF this law is enforced with vigor, I predict it will be repealed in a year!

No one will be paying double at McDonalds - that is pure hyperbole

Farmers? Labor shortages? Maybe - for a very short time. Then, they can get the legal immigrants under the H2's - won't be a problem.

You pro illegals are trying, without much success, to make something out of nothing -

What WILL HAPPEN is, the taxpayers will benefit from not having to pay for services to illegals - billions and billions of dollars are spent on illegals that won't have to be paid -

Did you ever stop to think about this FACT KevK?

Didn't think so

Two words come to mind:

Oh well

If us Gringos need millions of illegals to survive as a nation--------we have NO right to exist, period.

They'll get over it..... I have every confidence in the great state of Oklahoma to do the right thing. Would that my state could follow suit.

Texas will come on board------and; it will be akin to Hurricane Katrina hitting the illegal immigrant community.

Heck; the tide is starting to turn over in California of all places

KevK -- on the Detroit boards they're saying you're a anti-black racist because of some of your comments about the residents of Detroit. Why are you so pro-illegal-Mexican?

Default The anti immigrant law will be repealed next year

The business community in Oklahoma is already working behind the scenes to repeal large sections of the law. Of course it will be sold as a way to improve the law or correct certain sections of the law, but the reality will be the law will be gutted. Click on the link for more information.
