    Arkansas (2009)

    Arkansas "2009" Session


    Mission: Oppose Sen. Joyce Elliott's (D) bill SB 799 "Higher Education undocumented immigrant students in-state tuition" Update: Passed Senate Committee on Education

    Task: Contact the Senate and Oppse passage of SB 799

    Message: (Example)

    To the Honorable Senator ___________,

    I'm writing / calling to ask Senator __________ to please oppose SB799, since illegal aliens should not receive in-state tuition or financial aid, that privilege should go to citizens and there are plenty who can not afford college without aid. Considering these tough economic times, passage of SB799 is fiscally irresponsible. "Arkansas Higher Education Director Jim Purcell said that doing so would essentially eliminate out-of-state tuition and could reduce revenue to the state's colleges and universities by about $38 million. "

    Respectfully,
    XXXXXXX


    Mission: Request the Legislature to support and pass HB1093

    Task: Call, Fax, e-mail

    Message: (Example)

    To the Honorable Senator ___________,

    I'm writing / calling to ask Senator __________ to please support HB1093 , illegal aliens should not receive in-state tuition or financial aid, that privilege should go to citizens and there are plenty who can not afford college without aid. Arkansas should not be giving ID to anyone who can not show proof of legal residence or citizenship. Establishing a unit to investigate false ID documents should be a given, this act does astronomical damage to peoples lives. All of HB1093 is common sense and the people of Arkansas deserve no less.

    Respectfully,
    XXXXXXX

    Synopsis:

    House Bill 1093 by Rep. Bill Sample, R-Hot Springs, also would ban illegal immigrants from receiving college scholarships, in-state college tuition or other financial aid; require proof of citizenship or legal residence in the U.S. as a condition for obtaining an identification document; and require the Arkansas State Police to establish a unit to investigate the sale or distribution of false ID documents. making it a felony in Arkansas to provide transportation or shelter to anyone who is in the country illegally.

    LITTLE ROCK — A bill filed Tuesday seeks to crack down on illegal immigration by, among other things, making it a felony in Arkansas to provide transportation or shelter to anyone who is in the country illegally.

    House Bill 1093 by Rep. Bill Sample, R-Hot Springs, also would ban illegal immigrants from receiving college scholarships, in-state college tuition or other financial aid; require proof of citizenship or legal residence in the U.S. as a condition for obtaining an identification document; and require the Arkansas State Police to establish a unit to investigate the sale or distribution of false ID documents.

    Remarks Provided by "apropos"

    The bill's sponsor, Rep. Sample, is reportedly making several changes to the legislation before the committee gets to vote on it. Some sort of amendment, perhaps.

    Currently, the bill has been moved to the deferred calendar and the sponsor will have two days to move it back to the active calendar so it can be presented/debated by the committee.

    Looks like we just lost one round in Arkansas. Someone please update our info to reflect this. Did we miss this bill? Did we have enough people lobbying?

    There was lobbying against this bill. I don't have time right now to post additional information, but will do so tomorrow.

    HB bill 1383 sponsored by Rep Jim Nickels(D)was voted down, but Rep Nickels would like to reintroduce it before legislative session ends. I will be calling him on Monday, and would urge anyone else interested in this bill to do likewise. He can be reached at: nickelsj@arkleg.state.ar.us or 501-682-6211.

    There has been a lot of legislative maneuvering and passing of the buck (parroting the Governor's stance that this type of enforcement doesn't fall under the jurisdiction of the state) involved with this bill. The pro-illegal Arkansas Friendship Coalition is committed to undermining support for any bill concerned with illegal immigration. Countering its efforts is Secure Arkansas, which has worked extremely hard to garner support for the above and other related bills. Unfortunately, Arkansas has little federal or state leadership interested in fighting illegal immigration. What little support exists resides in the state legislature. I hate to say this, but there is an appalling ignorance in this state when it comes to seeing the "big picture"; i.e. the harmful long-term impact of illegal immigration on a poor state. It is an uphill and very frustrating battle, but some of us soldier on.

    I will provide an update after I talk with Rep Nickels office, and keep people apprised of other pending legislation.
