May it's time for Americans to hold rallies.

If they want do something about the "issues", they'd learn the language, live as Americans and contribute to the society they so want to benefit from but protest at the same time.

I was thinking the same thing! It's funny how illegals come here and demand rights. Why can't they stay in their great Country and demand rights!

AGREE 1000 x's. They have a lot of nerve.No other nationality got or gets what they have. Did you ever wonder if public aid checks to see if they own a cell phone? Thats a high bill or do they give stamps for that too!!!!

funny you should mention cell phone. Last week I was behind a mexican mother toting 3 kids. She had a cart full of baby food jars & cans of formula. All of this was FREE & paid for with vouchers. While the items were bing rung up she was talking (in spanish of course) on her cell phone. It got me wondering - here I am a tax paying American citizen, We work to pay for our food & would never ask for a handout. My tax dollars are paying for her kids food. These immigrants come to America & quickly learn the system. If they dared to protest in their own country they would be arrested. I agree, if you don't like the way this country is run - GO BACK HOME. We certainly don't need any more freeloaders.

No other nationality? Sooooooooo African Americans do not get any financial help? They don't make a line about 500 people long on Lake St and 26th? Right Mexicans are the problem, I mean they work minimum wage jobs, which take out all the taxes that they take from mine and probably your check as well. So they do have a right to aid. Perhaps whats more appalling is seeing Tyrone rolling into pick up some food stamps sitting on 24 inch rims and a iced out necklace. I wonder what he does for a living?

Everytime I see the start of some of this anti-immigrant nonsense, I know that my nationality is going to suffer an embarassment. I'm a white American. Damn I can't stand rednecks.

Actually the government now gives anyone that is on aid or has a link card a free cell phone and free minutes. How sweet is that?

The sorry thing is that you people talk down on a whole race when in reality you guys are too lazy to work as hard as people of Hispanic origin. That is why Latinos are taking our jobs. Good job to every hard working person no matter what color. Get that money and let these ignorant bums continue to look foolish on the Internet whining like children.

So you're ashamed that the country is being turned into a 3rd world rat hole too? The reason illegals take our jobs is because they work for less...added to that , one illegal may not be the sole bread winner in a household. These people live 10-15 to a house, so $6 an hour x 10 and you get the picture. Most americans would take that sorta job if the job paid a living wage. Our little brown friends have driven those wages down

Hey, I've been in bad situations & I tried to get help. The red tape was crazy & after weeks of filling out paperwork - I was denied any kind of aid.I don't know how to work the system - illegals seem to catch on pretty fast.That's why I get so pissed off when I see people who are not American citizens milking the system.
