From WND:

"Unemployment rates are rising across the United States, except Oklahoma. That state is experiencing the most dramatic reduction in unemployment since 2007, an improvement many in Oklahoma attribute to the passage last year by the state legislature of a strong employment-focused immigration reform law."

That's right, last year Oklahoma passed real "immigration reform," and not the kind that benefits illegals, either. This legislation put the taxpaying citizens of Oklahoma back to work, you know, doing those jobs officials in Washington say we're not willing to do.

Last year, Andrea Shea-King interviewed the bill's sponsor, State Rep. Randy Terrill. Recently, Rep. Terrill had this to say:

"Oklahoma is no longer 'OK' for illegal aliens," said State Rep. Randy Terrill, who sponsored House Bill 1804 which passed by overwhelming majorities last year in both the House (84-14) and Senate (41-6) of the Oklahoma Legislature.

"The bottom line is illegal aliens will not come here if there are no jobs waiting for them," Terrill said. "They will not stay here if there is no government subsidy, and they certainly won't stay here if they know that if they ever encounter our state and local law enforcement officers, they will be physically detained until they are deported."

And as you might expect, John McCain probably won't be commenting on this reversal in unemployment, either in Oklahoma or his home state of Arizona. Arizona has also adopted this "get tough" strategy with illegals, so I suspect that Arizona will be having some employment gains as well.
