I almost choked on my morning diet soda up my nose when I read this headline in the Washington Post: Mo. Panel’s Report Links Immigration To Abortion
Huh? According to the article:
A Republican-led legislative panel says in a new report on illegal immigration that abortion is partly to blame because it is causing a shortage of American workers.
The report from the state House Special Committee on Immigration Reform also says that “liberal social welfare policies” have discouraged Americans from working and have encouraged immigrants to cross the border illegally.
The statements about abortion and welfare policies, along with a recommendation to abolish income taxes in favor of sales taxes, were inserted into the immigration report by Rep. Edgar G.H. Emery (R), the panel’s chairman.
I just hope our own state legislature, which has been looking to take on the immigration issue, doesn’t get any ideas from their colleagues in Missouri.
