Re: “Budget year to start in $384 million hole” Tim Hoover/Denver Post/6/23/09
Colorado Governor Bill Ritter faced a news conference in Denver yesterday saying, “Balancing next year’s budget will mean making even more difficult choices.”
As Denver Post journalist Tim Hoover reported, “The state will need to take $249 million set aside for next year’s budget to pay for a short fall in the current fiscal year…by using cash funds meant for later, the state faces a $384 million shortfall.”
On the Peter Boyles Show at www.khow.com, a caller said, “Colorado is in a progression of following California’s long process of deterioration by allowing illegal immigrants to break that state’s budget.”
Boyles presented the public with an interview of an illegal Mexican, in the Sanctuary City of Boulder, whose daughter suffered from a rare disease, but taxpayers footed the bill. Another caller chimed in, “I wish I could have my daughter’s $12,000.00 medical bills paid for by taxpayers, but that ain’t gonna’ happen because I am a legal citizen.”
Boyles noted the hypocrisy of Coloradans paying for illegal immigrant Mexicans’ medical bills. Those bills, including Jackpot Babies or Anchor Babies, cost Colorado taxpayers $82 million annually.
In California, their illegal immigration population started small and now exceeds four million. Their children overwhelm schools, medical facilities with anchor babies and tens of thousands fill California jails. Total cost annually exceeds $10.3 billion paid for by California taxpayers. Today, California’s debt runs in the red at $24 billion. A whopping 86 of their hospitals and ER wards bankrupted out of existence in the past six years.
A closer look shows Colorado following in California’s footsteps. At first, Los Angeles promoted “Special Order 40” in 1979, which gave criminal aliens immunity from arrest and deportation. It remains in effect. Former Denver Mayor Webb and now Mayor John Hickenlooper continue that same “Sanctuary Policy” that protects criminal aliens from arrest and deportation in Colorado. We suffer 12,000 Mexican gang members in Denver in 2009. They run the drugs to our schools and in our back alleys with immunity from prosecution and deportation because of Hickenlooper’s Sanctuary City Policy.
That kind of protection emboldened criminal aliens and their families to grow to four million in California. Today, Colorado suffers 700,000 illegal aliens and their children. A compelling Colorado website www.cairco.org shows that Coloradans pay out $1.2 billion annually for illegal aliens. Nationally, from the Edwin Rubenstein report, U.S. taxpayers shell out $346 billion for criminal aliens across 15 federal agencies including ‘free lunch and breakfast’ programs for illegals’ kids.

If Ritter and the Colorado legislature enforced laws passed in August 2006 to rid the state of criminal aliens—voila—no more budget shortfall, but in fact, a surplus! But Mayor Hickenlooper refuses to enforce Initiative 100 that would impound vehicles driven by criminal aliens when they cannot show a driver’s license and insurance. Ritter refuses to expand 286 G, 1023 and two other laws designed to eject criminal aliens from Colorado.
Thus, taxpayers continue to pay the freight while the governor and legislature twiddle their thumbs with a $384 million shortfall.
Therefore, what can you do as a citizen to stop this “long process of deterioration”? That’s the big question! How do we citizens encourage, cajole and push our governor and Colorado legislators NOT to follow in California’s footsteps?
It proves so simple: enforce our laws!
--Governor Ritter needs to push ICE to enforce employment laws in Colorado. Take the jobs magnet away from 700,000 criminal aliens in our state and you will see a mass exodus where the laws are enforced.
--Governor Ritter needs to expand 287 G that allows more police officers to make arrests and initiate deportation proceedings against illegal aliens.
--Governor Ritter needs to enforce HB 1023.
--Governor Ritter must pursue employers of illegal aliens and put them out of business. He must stop the corruption that allows hundreds of employers to enjoy their own slave labor and under the table cash payments. That would allow Coloradans to work at a living wage, be paid above the table and bring taxes into our state.
--By Ritter doing his job, we run 700,000 illegal aliens out of Colorado along with their children. This would save $925 million a year in educational costs, $82 million in medical costs and $38 million in prison costs annually. (Source: www.fairus.org)
--Mayor John Hickenlooper rescinds the “Sanctuary Policy” for Denver and enforces Initiative 100.
--Call Governor Ritter at: 303 866 2471. Call John Hickenlooper at 720 865 9000.
What got us into this fiscal mess? Our leaders for 20 years watched illegal immigration grow and expand to make obscene profits for a few wealthy companies. A few benefitted while we citizens subsidized their crimes. Today, it’s out of hand with a national 10 percent unemployment of our citizens. Our state suffers $384 million in the hole and our nation suffers $10.3 trillion in the financial abyss!
It’s time to make Ritter and Hickenlooper accountable to our Colorado Constitution and the U.S. Constitution. It’s time for U.S. Senators Udall and Bennett to quit making excuses for criminal aliens and enforce the laws of our country.

Our ‘window’ to change to a balanced population and non-polluting energy diminishes every day we listen to irresponsible media and thus ignore the blatant symptoms manifesting all over America and the planet.
From: Frosty Wooldridge
This three minute interview with Adam Schrager on “Your Show” May 4, 2008, NBC Channel 9 News, addresses the ramifications of adding 120 million people to USA in 35 years and six million people to Colorado as to water shortages, air pollution, loss of farmland, energy costs and degradation of quality of life. In the interview, Frosty Wooldridge explains the ramifications of adding 120 million people to the USA in 35 years. He advances new concepts such as a “Colorado Carrying Capacity Policy”; “Colorado Environmental Impact Policy”; “Colorado Water Usage Policy”; “Colorado Sustainable Population Policy”. Nationally, the USA needs a "National Sustainable Population Policy" to determine the carrying capacity of this nation for the short and long term. Wooldridge is available for interviews on radio and TV having interviewed on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and FOX.
