3 Cheers for Colorado Gov. Bill Owens, Fighter Against the Alien Invasion

By Debbie Schlussel
Kudos to Colorado Republican Governor Bill Owens for having the guts to go after the Colorado Supreme Court on immigration.
He called the Court “arrogant.” And he is right.
A ballot initiative was set to be on the Colorado ballot in November to deny most state services to illegal immigrants. As we’ve noted, the Prez has softened such laws on the national level. So state and local officials, like Owens, must take it upon themselves to do the job an American (the Prez) won’t do: stop the illegal alien invasion and tax-grab.
But, Monday, the arrogant–and very politically left–Colorado Supreme Court threw out the ballot initiative on a technicality. They were apparently afraid that the measure will pass in a landslide.

Colorado Governor Bill Owens:

Courageous American Fights Illegal Alien Invastion

The measure would deny in-state college tuition, welfare, etc. to illegal aliens, but would not stop public education and emergency medical services (both are mandated under federal law). Now, Owens will have to–and said he will–call a special legislative session requiring a 2/3 vote of both the Colorado House and Senate, to make the ballot. Both houses are controlled by the Dems, so it will be difficult.
Still, we applaud Gov. Bill Owens for doing the right thing. And having the guts to fight the illegal alien sob story crowd. He has a history of speaking out on this hemorrhaging problem. And he is always right.
If only he were not term-limited.

Debbie,thank you for bringing attention to this judicial sham in my home state of Colorado. I posted comments on my own blog about this today. You’re right, it’s too bad that Governor Owens is in his last term. He has been a fine Governor. There is another anti-illegal immigration conservative, Mr. Marc Holtzman, who is on the Republican Primary ballot running for Governor. From what I know about Mr. Holtzman, he seems to be a traditional conservative. (pro-tax cuts, national security, etc.)
THANKS, ROCKY! I RECOMMEND EVERYONE VISIT ROCKY’S WEBSITE, http://www.rockymountainneocon.blogspot.com, WHICH HAS LONG BEEN ON OUR BLOGROLL, FOR GOOD REASON.
