“Conozca Sus Derechos.” Nixon Announces Pro-Illegal Immigrant DED Director

January 7th, 2009 by mopns · No Comments

MOGOP release:

Yesterday Governor-elect Nixon announced Linda Martinez was his choice to lead the Missouri Department of Economic Development. The question all Missourians are asking themselves today is, “With the announcement of a pro-illegal immigrant DED director, is Missouri taking a step backwards?”

Missourians believe that we cannot wait for Washington to stop unlawful immigration – they want their state government officials to be proactive to ensure that Missouri tax dollars are not funding illegal immigration and that the laws against illegal immigration are enforced. When the federal government failed to enact a comprehensive immigration policy, a local municipality did something. Linda Martinez led the effort to overturn their effort to crack down on illegal immigrants arguing, “This is bad law and mean-spirited public policy.”

“If Nixon’s choice to head DED views anti-illegal immigration laws as ‘mean-spirited’, what message is he sending to Missourians?”, said Tina Hervey communications director, Missouri Republican Party. “By selecting Martinez, it is clear that Nixon does not plan on continuing the strong policies enacted by Governor Blunt to curb illegal immigration activity in Missouri, and that’s a shame.”
