February 15, 2011 - KTUL Channel 8 News

On February 15, 2011, Raza Mica Immigration Attorney, Charles M. Parrish was asked by Tulsa's KTUL Channel 8 news reporter, Burt Mummolo, to discuss extreme immigration laws proposed by Oklahoma Senator Ralph Shortey.


Strict Illegal Immigrant Bills

U.S. Or not U.S? That is the question being debated. "Who is actually a citizen? Who deserves the right of citizenship?" asked Oklahoma State Senator Ralph Shortey. Two bills made it through Senate committees, one which takes issue with the 14th amendment's "All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside." "Now they still have legal rights of citizenship according to the federal government, but we're just going to say that you don't have the rights of citizenship of this state," he said. "I see tremendous constitutional issues with this," said attorney Charles Parrish who specializes in immigration law. "An individual born within the U.S. is a citizen of the United States," he said. The second bill would allow the state to seize property of illegal aliens if they were to get into trouble with the law. Say you get pulled over for a broken taillight... "...then the police officer at that time can take them into custody and impound their vehicle at that point," said Senator Shortey. "Ownership (of personal property) is not based upon one's legal status within the U.S.," said Parrish. Senator Shortey says he's ready for the backlash. "The simple fact is I've been called a racist, and I can think of nobody that's more multi-cultural than Ralph Shortey, fact is I'm half Indian, my wife is half Vietnamese," he said. As for the full-fledged illegals, they've got more than just ethnicity to worry about. "There's a stigma that an illegal alien is a bad person," said Parrish.
