You should find a more reliable source.

If you apply for government benefits such as the ones you are discussing, you obviously need to fill out forms. Forms of which the information would ask for things such as SSN. Illegal persons would not have that, therefore they could not possess said benefits. Many legal citizens get assistance, not everyone deserves the benefits and they won’t just fall in your lap.

If they are illegal they don’t get benefits and they obviously do get in trouble as well. We also give our US natives free benefits also, I see no problem spreading the wealth to the worthy, if we have it.
Honey, we are the land of opportunity. Be accountable for yourself. Why shouldn’t people from other countries have the opportunity to have the things we have?
Is your argument that they’re stealing our jobs and getting our benefits? Some American people are poor, some are rich; Some American people are hard working and some are living off of the government’s freebies. There are less worthy Americans with this opportunity because they just so happen to be born here. Many immigrants are wanting better for themselves and will work hard for it, why in the world should it be denied to them?
We are a land, a melting pot, originating from immigrants. All men should be equal.

Very true. Immigration reform MUST take place. We cannot allow our laws to be disrespected over and over again. Naturalization is the law and the Constitution says that NOBODY is above the law. I understand that the need to provide for your family is great, but if you get caught you should be subject to the punishment that the law states applies.

Agreed. This is a great country. One that I am fervently proud that I became a part of. However we have become a country of complainers instead of one of producers, one of “wait for it to get done” instead of “lets go out there and do it”. If you want a job to provide for your family, get on your knees and scrub a toilet for minimum wage. I promise your paycheck will be ready at the end of the week. Go out for 10 hours a day under the hot sun and chop itchy grass. The work will be long but it will be honest and it wont make the food your kids eat any less filling if your not there to eat it with them. Dont like it, then get the education. If you envy the 1 percent and their wealth, strive and join their ranks. This is still the only country in the world that will give you, however slim, the chance to do so and immigrants helped make it so. Fight for immigration reform because IT IS THE LAW not because a scapegoat is needed. Instead let us strive to reform ourselves. We are worth it.

After writing to my senators re:concerns about undocumented immigrants’ ability to benefit from tax credits. Here is an excerpt from the letter she sent me back.“While they are not eligible for federal benefits, a large number of undocumented immigrants still pay taxes. According to an April 2011 report by the Immigration Policy Center, households headed by undocumented immigrants paid $11.2 billion in state and local taxes in 2010. California alone received more than 2.7 billion dollars in tax revenue from undocumented immigrants. At the same time, I recognize that undocumented immigrants are able to claim the additional child tax credit. As you note, the Inspector General for Tax Administration at the U.S. Department of the Treasury found that, in 2010, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) distributed $4.2 billion in additional child tax credits to individuals not authorized to work in the United States.”

Obama when he first started his campaign he had inside help to get him past the vetting part from Pelosi , Reid, and Howard Dean and others along with ACORN fixing votes and the dead people that was voting. Obama had a charm that got the attention of the younger bunch that had never voted before. Obama had all his back ground sealed from the public. He lied about his connection to his church and the preacher also lied about him being a socialist liberal. He lied all through his campaign and he continues to lie even in office and every speech is full of lies. He wants to give amnesty to illegals so they can vote him another term in office. Obama is the worst POTUS than Carter ever was.

You’re right about the Native Americans, and it is unfortunate for them they lost their land to a stronger power that wanted to evade the same tyranny we are currently dealing with present day. That stronger power went on to build the greatest nation on the planet that loves every person of every color/religious belief. This nation also became the most powerful nation on the planet that protects its hardworking, honest citizens whom are striving to achieve “The American Dream” the right way! Everyone is welcome, but they must follow the rules set in place by our Founding Fathers so that this nation can continue to flourish. Illegal is illegal. Oh, and this “hatred” you are accusing(along with the rest of the liberal media)is PRIDE in the USA for what it is supposed to be. The problem is, it has become a country filled with corruption and greed, with an out of control government whose only interest is power. We the people are fed up with footing the bill for irresponsibility!

I don’t understand how human beings can put blame on a group of people for their own woes. It has happened many times throughout history and in hindsight it is recognized as a mistake. Lots of comments are made due to either lack of education, lack of drive, or perhaps a jealousy that they too can’t get these ‘free’ services. Yes, lots of folks are out of jobs, me included, but I am honest, I am not about to go cut grass or take a job that some of these folks do. Majority (not all) of illegal immigrants that come from down south are uneducated and hence have no knowledge of the law here nor can they get the more coveted jobs. We as Americans, need to improve ourselves, and not look for an excuse or scapegoat for our woes. IF we are to choose a scapegoat as is the tendency of us as humans, I don’t understand why we would choose the lowest earning income group of people as our target, instead of looking at the other end of the spectrum who holds the majority of the money in the US.

llegal Immigrants have destroyed this country. But America never did anything to prevent it. They are a big reason for the bank bail outs. Even though a good half of them didn;t need it. In the 90’s congress past a bill that pretty much said you had to give anyone loans. Then they get credit cards, don’t pay that.. you know the cycle. I find it great how people exploit them as cheap labor. That is what it is. for all that nonsense of people being a bunch of idiots. I will NOT pay for health insurance. The nazi fine they will give me is cheaper then paying for it. And If I do get sick, I’ll pay to see a dr. I’ll see him faster then any of you will. Congress your a joke.

I totally agree. Further if you were in the armed forces and your child was born overseas with you I think YOU should have automatic citizenship bestowed on your child. Why punish us Americans and let lawbreaking felons get a free ride?

daughter1 02/26/2010 3:29am

I think all folks getting hand out should be drug tested. I see lots of young folks I know are slackers getting money. They should have to stand up for themselves just like we do. I have a grandson in jail right now who was pampered by others to enable him to get where he is today. He would not listen to me when he could get what he wanted for free. I blame the easy way they dole out our money to young folks who could work. Now my grandchild is in jail going to prison and cries like a baby when I visit him. It breaks my heart when government can hand out to these kids and make older family members look like idiots.

I have seen no one here crying about color. Just you. American citizens whether born here or immigrated here are paying thru the nose for illegals who trample our laws and are ruining our nation. Drug busts not long ago in several cities and states prove we are all in danger. What will we do when they start killing innocents here like in Mexico? We all need to wake up. When that shooting starts it will be too late to stop it. It is probably too late now. Just my opinion. I want to feel safe when I leave my home as well as when I am in it. I feel lawmakers need to figure out which country and peoples they want to represent and defend. Wake up people. Phoenis Arizona is the kidnap capital of the United States.

Check out the retainee’s in the jail in Washington County Arkansas. We are over-run with illegals. They get free lawyers. We have all kinds of illegal activities going on here. Rape-Murder-Credit Card Fraud-Forgery-DWI-Leaving the scene of accidents with no licenses and insurance-Drugs and weapons by certain people to list a few. We are being crapped on by those lawmakers who are not in danger every day like we are. Hope they never hit you while drunk and hurt or kill a family member while they run away. Drive by shooting are the normal more and more every day. We have had one person found burned up in the trunk of a car not far from my home. Am I happy? No way. Try to get a job here. I know several who have been looking for over a year. No to Illegals.

RIGHT NOW there are over 100 foreign felons WORKING at Yamato Engines in Seattle. They got permits from ICE and the owners probation for a decade of felonys.
The millions of jobless and homeless Americians would beat you to a pulp if they got you on the street.

Obviously he was not a legal citizen or he broke the law. You should blame him for your children not seeing their father. We have an excelent immagration system. It is designed to restrict immigration by those who have nothing to contribute, and to keep out those that would be wards of the state. IE, all those that are underemployed and get welfare, foodstamps, use the emergency room at the hospital and give my address so they can’t be found. Sorry, my wife is also an immigrant. I had to do much paperwork and spend much money for her to follow me home. Then she did the necessary work to become a citizen. If you are not here to become a citizen you should not be here period.

My daughter was born in South Korea when I was stationed there with the US Army. I had to patition for her to be a legal US Citizen. It was not automatic. No one should be given citizenship in the US simply because they were born here. Their citizenship should be the same as their parents.

I will be voting no on this bill, and writing you congressional folks with my notice. I also want my country back. If the gov. can find these folks to give them health care, higher education and such, why can’t they do so in order for deportation? They can try the legal way.

if you are illegal and you are sick you go to the hospital? Who pays? Taxpayers
You have kids? enroll them in public schools, can’t turn them away. Who Pays? Taxpayers.
You have kids and can’t feed them? WIC, food stamps. Who pays? Taxpayers.
If you break the law in this country you have rights and if you cannot provide legal representation a lawyer is appointed by the court system. Who Pays? Taxpayers.

Now if you are an Illegal Alien, are you with me, do you pay taxes? if you don’t then I guess it is free then isn’t it! don’t pull my beans.

mtconway 07/24/2009 2:38pm

Both of my parents emmigrated from Enlish speaking countries prior to the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and they had to;
-be sponsored no welfare for immigrants if they were ill they or the sponsor paid up the medical bills.
-appear at a public school to demonstrate the ability to read or right in English.
-appear before an appointed medical review to prove you did not have a medical condition that would be a drain on U.S. Resources.
-Immigration quotas favored entry to those from certain countries. “Quota is filled.” meant if you wanted to be here try again or stay out. My father only wore a shamrock on St. Patricks Day for the religous significance and was burried with an American Flag pin on his lapel. My mom is occaisionally called a foreigner by pukes that haven’t been on the planet half as long as she’s been in this country and still never thought of going back

My husband has been ban from entering the USA for 10 years. He is now currently in Mexico. I am an American Citizen. This is not right. This is not fair. My husband and I are law abiding tax paying people. We have 3 children. Adriana 14, Gabriel 9, and Miguel 5. Why should my children be apart from their father? We need immigration reform NOW!! I want my husband back!!

dimeadozen 05/11/2009 5:58am

If all the illegals that gather together in the 100’s+ of thousands to protest the US for rights they don’t deserve, why can’t they do the same in Mexico and fight against their own countries corrupt government so they can lead better lives south of the border???? If they become US citizens LEGALLY, hey they can have the rights of a US citizen. As I say, " me speak a no hablo spanish" ? get it.

driven30 05/04/2009 10:17am

And also immigrants are not only mexicans.young people just want a chance at the American dream. I leave my house everyday and i see people who were born and raised in the US that have every thing they could ever want and end up not doing anything with their life
but i guess you people are ok with spending your good hard earned tax money on them. An AMERICAN SLACKER than do something to help a child go to college to better their life and contribute to society

driven30 05/04/2009 10:07am

Iam recently new to the site and cant believe what iam reading. I just want to know how can you people have such hatred and malice in your hearts. PLEASE REMEMBER 80 years ago the south was segregated and if your grand parents are still alive they can tell you what it was like.
we have come a very long way since then but we still have alot farther to go. I never thought in my wildest dreams that a black man would be president and every night i pray for our president and the turn around of this econemy.No one is 100% American PERIOD. The NATIVE AMERICANS are the only ones that are true Americans.

Send all the illigals back along with their illigal children. Just because they come here and have an anchor child, should not mean that that child is an Americal Citizen. I don’t remember reading anything about that and I am a legal citizen 67 years old. If it is true then there should be a bill written stating that if you are illigal and have children born in this country, does not mean that that child gets an automatic citizenship. If the parents are illigal, so are their children.

Save tax payer’s dollars, send them and the children back.

DJJ 02/14/2009 8:22pm

Just enforce the laws we already have! You know…start with the US Constitution!

DJJ 02/14/2009 8:20pm

It’s time to foreclose, pay the “piper” and start over, and be accountable for our poor stewartship. Maybe we can clean it up before our children are left holding the bag.

The other matter: Read information I found on the below websites. Is thias true? If it is how can we trust Mr. Obama and you guys(SCOTUS, House, Senate, FBI,CIA, etc) with something as massive as this when you and he can’t cleanup simple matters from like simply providing a righteous response for a simple request to confirm Mr. Obama’s natural born US citizenship status. Ratherthan simply put this to rest by sending the information requested, I understand Mr. Obama and others named in lawsuits around the country have hired several powerful law firms requesting dismissal and to seal access to all of Mr. Obama’s records(vault copy of BC, college records, immigration records, medical records, ect.). I bet that costs lots money. Why not spend a few bucks and just provide the information? Would that clear the matter up amnd build trust in everyone.

Before you say it, let me ask: Since when was “FactCheck.org.” Appointed offical vetting agency for the election process?

In Texas, I understand the plaintiff’s request for dismissal used was that they have “Official Immunity.”

This gives me great faith and trust in my President & everyone that did not demand his accountability!

I understand Pelosi, Howard Dean and the DNC are responsible to make sure these matters are properly perfomed? HAs anyone asked them? I also understand a Phil Berg of the Democratic Party advised Mr. Obaqma he was not elligible way back when he first considered entering the race? Then why are there still lawsuits and hush by the Mainstream media? And the Subpoena from Occidental(see below)?

Mr. Obama can very simply put this to rest as he did the concerns of Rev. Wright. He didn’t get attorny’s to resolve that matters? Is he hiding something?

http://www.therightsideoflife.com/

A new lawsuit is being prepared by a California attorney who already has four cases pending over the issue of President Barack Obama’s eligibility to occupy to Oval Office, and this one will include a demand from state lawmakers who forward state funds to Washington for documentation of his qualifications.

Orly Taitz told WND today that she’s preparing the complaint but is holding onto it and will file it shortly to give state legislators a chance to join the action as plaintiffs.

Four already have signed up, including state Rep. Eric Swafford of Tennessee, who agreed to be a plaintiff “for a Writ of Mandamus to obtain original birth certificate, immigration records, passports and other vital records for Barry Soetero aka Barack Hussein Obama.”

Taitz told WND the case also probably will include members of the military as plaintiffs, since both state lawmakers and military officers are obliged to follow orders from the president of the United States and both have a need to know those orders are legitimate.

“In the military, those would be unlawful orders, and [following them] would subject the officers to courts-martial,” she said. “In the legislatures, they cannot follow any of his bills or orders … they don’t know who he is.

“As far as we know he is a foreign national … Why should state legislators send any funds from the state to a foreign national?” she said.

“While we are working on the complaint, I’m gathering support from different states,” she said.
