A Step in the Right Direction

Colorado approved legislation that will make it harder for illegal immigrants over 18 to get specific government benefits such as Medicaid, Medicare and unemployment - by requiring them to prove legal residency. It is expected to affect 50,000 illegal immigrants.

The bill is awaiting Gov. Owens' signature. And surprise, both houses in Colorado are dominated by Democrats. Of course, Republicans are claiming the bill is not tough enough, but as I say in Spanish "todo progreso es progreso" which loosely translated is "all progress is progress."
