Silence equals an agreement to our government deciding things for us such as this. Though there are anti-migrants celebrating this many more people feel for migrants but aren’t speaking up.

JEFFERSON CITY | A wide-ranging illegal-immigration bill glided through the Missouri Senate on Tuesday with surprisingly little debate.
Senators spent just over an hour debating the bill, which includes an array of measures aimed at denying state resources to illegal immigrants, preventing them from finding work and identifying those who commit crimes. The measure passed on a voice vote with just five lawmakers present.
“I didn’t expect to get it through in an hour,” said Sen. Scott Rupp, a Wentzville Republican who is the bill’s sponsor. “But I think it’s a level-headed approach that makes sense and a fair way to deal with this issue.”
