A group that sought to increase Michigan’s minimum wage to $10.10 per hour effectively ended its ballot campaign Friday.
The Raise Michigan Coalition said Friday it would not wage a legal battle to get on the November ballot after the Board of State Canvassers rejected the group’s petitions last week because they contained too many duplicate signatures.
Not letting something called local opposition (or Heaven forbid…national sovereignty) get in the way of them assuaging their troubled conscience, Gov Rick Snyder announced that around 100 illegal aliens are already in Michigan.
According to the Cadillac News, at least 100 of these illegals, a breakdown from where they are coming from has not been provided, will be here on a “temporary basis”.
No word on exactly how long “temporary” might be.
While speaking to a business round table this morning in Washington, Gov. Snyder said,
“It’s really terrible the whole situation with the undocumented children and that’s really generated the crisis that you’re currently talking about.”
