New ballot initiative targets immigrants

Posted By on Sat, Apr 5, 2008 at 1:47 PM

Disappointed that there's no severance tax initiative to get excited about anymore? Don't sweat it: the immigration-obsessed are stepping up to the plate. Stephens Media reports that a group called Secure Arkansas has filed a ballot initiative that would restrict public benefits to immigrants over 13 until their legal status is verified. Exceptions would include emergency medical care, disaster relief, and homeless services. Tuition and routine health care would be a no-no. Dustin McDaniel will have to approve or reject the initiative by Wednesday.
