Lana Reed, who worked as a bilingual specialist for the Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services in Overland Park from 2008 to 2010 urged lawmakers to adopt the bill targeting illegal immigration. She described a system overrun by illegal immigrants who used false Social Security numbers and other fraudulent documents to game the system.(Vdare.com emphasis)
â€?I witnessed overwhelming levels of fraud and corruption resulting in the waste of millions of taxpayer dollars,â€? Reed told the House Judiciary Committee. â€?Most of the fraud was conducted pursuant to policies of the SRS, which required employees to turn a blind eye to fraud and abuse.â€?

Iâ€™m shocked, shocked I say! Ironically one of the pro-illegal big wigs in Chicago once insisted to my face that â€?no illegals even use welfare!â€?Sadly it appears the Cheap Labor faction of the GOP is going to win here: Immigration bill may be dead in Kansas By BRAD COOPER The Kansas City Star wed, Mar 23, 2011
Guys? I think he was lying!
A major immigration bill similar to a controversial Arizona law suffered a potentially fatal blow Wednesday when the Kansas House refused to consider the measureâ€¦Leading Immigration Patriot Kris Kobach, who is the Kansas Secretary of State, sensibly remarked:
The bill was never able to get out of the House Judiciary Committee, which was led by Rep. Lance Kinzer, the billâ€™s co-author. The Olathe Republican said he was disappointed with the outcomeâ€¦
Kinzer pinned part of the defeat on opposition that included some local chambers of commerce and agricultural groups.
â€?Their opposition, I think, was not founded on the realities of the contents of this bill, but instead a blanket opposition to any effort to deal with the issue of illegal immigration,â€? he said.
â€?Todayâ€™s action makes it much less likely the bill will pass this session, but it doesnâ€™t make the issue will go away,â€?The Kansas City Star continues
â€¦The problem was compounded because Kansasâ€™ neighbors Nebraska, Oklahoma and Missouri have taken steps to stem the tide of illegal immigration. Failure to act would lead Kansas to become a magnet for illegal immigration, Kobach has argued.Like a leaking roof, excessive low-quality immigration can be confidently relied upon to go on causing problems. In Kansas, where the Republicans control the House 92/33, the problem is probably greed more than treason. The Stupid Party is, as Peter Brimelow recently remarked, voting itself towards oblivion.
