george-tiller.jpgWICHITA, Kan. - The Kansas National Organization for Women will honor Dr. George Tiller on the one year anniversary of his brutal assassination. A candlelight vigil will be held to pay tribute to this honorable man's life, work and legacy.

We will gather at 8:00 p.m. on May 31st in Old Town Square, just as we did last year on the evening of his murder. See pictures of last year's vigil here!

Candles will be provided for an in-kind donation.

Speakers will share their memories of Dr. Tiller and messages of peaceful resistance against extremist anti- abortion messaging, legislation and the continued harassment of the doctors that provide necessary abortion care.

immigration.gifGREAT BEND, Kan. - Arizona has recently come under fire for its immigration bill. I have heard loud arguments from both sides regarding the legal implications of this law. Those arguments aside, we need to look at the big picture. Is this bill by itself going to be effective, or is it just a political ploy to satisfy those upset with illegal immigration? A lot of wording, but nothing more than the government creating more laws and creating a civil rights debate? I am not going to touch that aspect in this article; whether or not the bill is infringing on the rights of American Citizens.

According to Numbers USA and the PEW research center, both of which are bi-partisan studies, 7.7 million American jobs are held by illegal immigrants. The majority of immigrants come into America seeking jobs. Big business lures illegal immigrants in with the promise of a better life; a life where a man and woman can take care of their families, and live a relatively safe existence. The majority of illegal immigrants come to America for employment.

Is it cost effective for American's to go after illegal immigrants one at a time?
