Paige Ritz started this petition to Iowa State Senate and

Mississippi is a crime filled, poverty stricken, dehumanizing state. It is getting worse by the day and the people that are there are mainly stuck there due to financial reasoning. But, what if I told you that people who sell drugs, sell their bodies, and carry pistols don't want to? What if I told you pimps, prostitutes, robbers, and killers are doing everything based on hunger and lack of resources? Mississippi is letting people die. They have little to no programs to provide health care, mental health help, drug rehabilitation, food, or shelter. They are letting people die from cancer, STDs, and other health problems that are then reinforced by lack of nutrition and hydration. These people work like dogs for 7.25 and then sell drugs, their bodies, and commit other crimes all night to make an extra 20 dollars a night, so imagine what they would do for a good job, a nice dwelling, food in their families stomachs, and a little bit of health care. They are hard working, loving people. I'm hoping the state of Iowa will come together as the loving, caring people I know you are and be willing to open a program that would bring people who want to do better up north to provide all the necessities and allow them an opportunity to become productive and healthy citizens of Iowa. They will work, they will obtain an education, and my goal is even if they don't stay forever that they will take the positivity back to Mississippi and begin to make it into a better state. They are willing to put in the effort and show they want this. They are not bad people and all they need is a chance to do better. I'm sure they would add to the diversity and beautifulness of Iowa as productive, clean, healthy individuals. Iowa is a very loving and open place and it welcomed me with open arms and kind hearts even though I'm not anything like anyone around here. I hope you will consider doing it for others as well, because they need it. Please help me Iowa, because I need to help Mississippi before we lose more unnecessary lives.
