Miss Oklahoma foiled by immigration question?


Critics say Miss Oklahoma Morgan Elizabeth Woolard finished second in the Miss USA contest because of backlash over her answer supporting Arizona’s new immigration law.

"I'm a huge believer in states' rights. I think that's what's so wonderful about America," Woolard said. "So I think it's perfectly fine for Arizona to create that law."

Woolard said she opposes racial profiling.

Fans booed last night when Miss USA judge Oscar Nunez asked Woolard where she stood on the controversial new law that defines illegal immigration as trespassing and allows local law enforcement agencies to question people they suspect of being in the country illegally.

It was a flashback of last year’s controversy when Miss California, Carrie Prejean, finished second after answering a question about same-sex marriage, which she opposed.

As of 12:30 p.m. this afternoon, more than 90 percent of voters of an online Fox News poll felt Nunez, a star on “The Office,” sunk Woolard’s chances.

Woolard finished second to winner Rima Fakih of Michigan.

I'd have to agree with the above poster. Franco has a clear agenda with the selection of his news stories and obvious bias on what he does write. He is just one example of the many so-called 'jouranlists' that contribute to the falling readership of our nation's newspapers.

I do like him for one simple fact -- when I run across someone who believes that the press is un-biased, I pull up articles from Franco to show how clearly wrong they are!

The caucasian American beauty with roots in Arabia was a knockout and so is this one but obviously as we can understand political correctness bigotry discrimination is very real and clearly this hurt her in the same way the California beauty queen 2 yrs ago said she believed marriage was a holy act of union from the Creator and was meant for a man and woman only that recieved profanity and hostility from a homosexual judge who voted against her.

We must understand that racism and bigotry is a 2 way street and always has been irrespective of liberals or minorities who allege it is only within the majority race or conservativism. Clearly this total hypocrisy but proves how biased these individuals are.

Techinically both candidates were supurb and equal in most all aspects but winning is winning and like in anything when things appear dead even it comes down to the slighest of edges or a matter of inches and split seconds such as closely contested sporting events.

They may have had to flip a coin on this one but the immigration AZ law answer was that edge or inch or split second that put the brunette in the winners circle.

Maybe they could have chosen 2 queens?

No complaints here but there hasnt been much backlash or anything close to the homosexual marriage issue 2 yrs ago in Cally.

Also this is not a race issue since both are white.

The subtitle is 'News and Ideas on Immigration', implying that, at least in the author's view, this is more than just an opinion blog.

Miss OK looks like an illegal alien from Iceland... would she be stopped by the Nazi AZ police?

This is why I don't pay attention to this show anymore. There was a time when it was a beauty contest, designed to entertain the viewer. Now, like just about every other TV program in existence today, it has devolved into a platform for someone's political agenda. And more often than not, it is the liberals - who claim to be more intelligent, tolerant and accepting of others than conservatives - that stack the deck against those who disagree with them, or oust them entirely.

Many years ago I attended a large church with a sizable church staff, one of whom confessed to me that she was an illegal immigrant two weeks before planning to resign and return to her native Canada. She was blond, blue-eyed, beautiful and spoke the Queen's English. Upon hearing her confession (her residency terms stipulated that she could only work in the area of nursing) my only thought was "Oh, my, you naughty illegal immigrant. Won't more of you come?"

Arab men are extremely protective of their women and the slighest insult offend or degradation from a non-arab would mean a fight to the death. Non-arabs who ever assault rape or murder their females would mean instant death and beheading and the criminal cut up into tiny pieces and fed to the worms. No waste of tax payer dollars ...

Anon 3:02pm - The Nazi AZ police? Are you serious? Talk about melodramatic.

Do you realize that if a person who is not a citizen of Mexico is caught in Mexico without proper documentation stating they are there legally, they are sentenced to 2 years in Mexico's Federal Prison System. Upon release that person will be immediately deported. If they return and are caught a second time without proper documentation stating they are they legally, they will receive 10 years in Mexico's Federal Prison System. Again upon release they will be immediately deported.

Yet somehow you see AZ as an evil force here simply due to them passing a law stating ILLEGAL immigration is in fact against the law.

Interesting.

I think you are reading into this or trying to make it an issue when none is there. The Arab-American was a stunning, exotic ethnic beauty - -just as American as the perky little same old, same old blue-eyed blond, but miles above her in both the beauty and brains department. Happy to see the typical Southern "deer in the headlights" Jessica Simpson- look didn't win. Americans come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and ethnic backgrounds.

How many have actually read the AZ law? Judging by not only these comments, but also Holder's response, not many that oppose he AZ have actually read the law. It is simply enforcing the existing federal law. Hell, if you're here on a work or student visa, you're required to carry your papers are all times. In fact, when you travel to just about every other country out there, you are required to carry your passport and/or travel visa on you at all times. Since we are trying to become the United States of West Europe, tell me how the AZ law is any different than the laws that are enforced throughout Europe, Asia and the rest of the world?

She got hosed due to her convictions. Simple as that. She paid tangibly for her beliefs.

"Foiled" - kind of makes it sound like Miss OK was up to something nefarious and the judge put a stop to it with this question. I guess someone in unbridled opposition to the AZ law could see it that way.

Susan said...

OK, so the Hispanic guy asked the AZ immigration question. And a woman asked the birth control question. And Trump's wife asked the question about those photos (Which, did you expect the girl to say no? That would have branded her unmanageable to the organization.).

You do realize that DT is a total publicity hound and all this is for attention and ratings. Which, ironically, where as low as last year's.

OK was "foiled" for being a bore on stage. She woke up for a bit during swimsuit but promptly fell back asleep afterwards.

Most of the hispanic people I conversate with agree with Morgan and the state of Arizona. That is because they are here legally.

Why would anyone with a brain support illegal immigration, Franco?

I though both of them (Oklahome and Michigan) blew their interviews. No matter the questions, you should be able to not Um, er, stumble and sound ill-prepared. Both sounded rather weak and stupid anyways.

It was a loaded questions, regardless. It'd have been much more insightful if ALL FINALIST WOULD HAVE BEEN ASKED THE SAME QUESTIONS. Of the five asked, I'd have preferred one over some others...let's see how they all manage the same loaded/tough question.

Here is the absolute bottom line, this is the Ms. USA contest, ALL contestants should be born in the USA!!!!! NO QUESTIONS, NO EXCUSES, NO EXCEPTIONS!!!! Let her compete in the Ms. Universe contest.

The fact that this country has become so politically correct is a joke! True AMERICANS (the ones born here to legal parents) need to take a stand and bring this country back to what it was founded on. Invite the world to become an AMERICAN citizen, but LEGALLY!!!!!!! Just like everyone else.

GET WITH IT PEOPLE!!!!!

Yes Arab men are so protective that they beat them and hide them behind burka's and want them uneducated. Yes we see how well this works in the Arab world. The world should be just like Arab men. You sir are an idiot.

i serioulsy think that this arizona law is some bull.. i mean is in it federal responsability to deal with this kind of issue.. this is just some racial thing and not to protect people, because who is getting hurt, but only immigrants who for a better life decide to come here. Seriously, just drop it..President Obama is just going to banned the law anywayz.

Her answer should have been that illegal immigration is okay and that AZ is wrong. Why would the AZ taxpayers care if the illegals are leaching off the system without paying anything in to it? The AZ taxpayers should suck it up and try to support as many illegals as possible. Free education, free lunches, free healthcare, etc. By god, I think the illegals have earned it. Hopefully, this will be an incentive for more of the illegal's family and friends to come over. I mean it's not like we don't have plenty of money. Who cares if the citizens taxes go up to support the growing demand on the system. We need to help as many of them as we can. It's our duty isn't it?

OKLAHOMA was the first to pass the toughest immigration law against ILLEGAL immigrants. It went into effect 11/01/2007... YES IN 2007! >>> It stops illegal immigrants from obtaining government IDs. It also makes it illegal for U.S. citizens to house, employ illegals. Many in Oklahoma said Latinos started leaving by the thousands since the law was passed in May 2007.

Yes, Franco has a "clear agenda" with regard to his "selection of his news stories." It's called a beat, people. His beat is immigration. He covers stories that relate to it. He IS doing his job.

Mr. Ordoñez posed the question to us: was Miss Oklahoma was foiled by the question on Arizona? He didn't state his opinion or give us an answer. He reported on something relevant to his beat, just like a good reporter does.

Keep up the good work, Franco.

So if that's the case, why doesn't Franco ever raise the legitimate question of how much illegals are costing every single taxpayer in this country?

Something with a headline like "Are Illegals Worth $XXXX to You?" -- somehow I doubt he'll ever do that type of investigative reporting...

True, but look to the above headline I created and you can read the intent of the author's premise. So don't tell me he isn't biased and in favor of allowing current and future illegals to flood our land without concern about our laws or sovereignty.

Keep up the good work, Franco.

Yep -- and Anne Caulkins if you're reading this, just one more reason why I stopped subscribing to the Observer years ago. Way too much bias in its articles and not enough investigative journalism done.

why is this conversation taking place? This is not a beauty pageant but yet another appeasement of political correctness taken to an extreme. No one has been forced to come to our country except African Americans. Their several hundred years of oppression is compared to Mexican nationals creeping across our borders demanding anything is revolting. Go back to Mexico and demand Felipe to provide for you.
