Reed Erickson Reports from the State Capitol.
Senators in Jefferson City worked into the early morning hours on a comprehensive illegal immigration legislation.
Governor Blunt threatened to call a special session if the Legislature didn't pass comprehensive illegal immigrant reform.
Wednesday the senate worked through a small bill that sponsor Luann Ridgeway called a bullet approach to illegal immigration.
|Run Time: 00:17|
Very narrowly tailored bullet approach to dealing with the growing problem of illegal immigration in the state of Missouri.
All this bill does, it is about a one page bill... all it does is deny assistance, state public assistance to illegal immigrants.
Disagreements over the wording of the bill resulted in no action.
