With Montufar out of work, Carmen Marrero, his 19-year-old girlfriend and a US citizen, said she is applying for aid for herself and her three children. "Now, there are four more people who are going on the rolls," Garcia said.

19 and three kids?.
Pathetic.

And she'll probably continue having more kids...obvbiously oblivious to the fact that having more children doesn't help one's lot in life. She's teaching her children that personal repsonsiblity isn't needed as long as the government hands out entitlements to lazy people.

I get so tired of these illegals likening themselves to immigrants of the past who came through legal channels. What unmitigated gall. What is it with these people, that they simply can't differentiate between right and wrong?

Good for RI. It seems the illegal alien problem has caused problems everywhere. It also seems our federal govt. is bought off by the 20% who exploit these people. Hopefully each individual state will pass common sense legislation to end this alien madness.

The EMPLOYERS of the illegal population are passing the cost of underfunded schools and bankrupt hospital services to the paying tax base.
The employers should do 'the perp wallk', to the judge.

Of course the Goya salesman doesn't like the crackdown. He will lose sales. I think, more and more states will be forced to take action as their budgets deplete. There are just too many people here, illegally. Uncontrolled immigration only causes chaos. Cities and states are unable to plan and meet their budgets. The illegal aliens think that just because they're working and paying taxes on things they buy,and possibly minimal income tax, they're covering their expenses. When all of their kids have to receive welfare, it drains the economy. And, the amount of money sent out of the U.S. is staggering.

"You can't really compare the experiences of the early immigrants with the current ones," said Darrell West, a public policy and political science professor at Brown University. "A hundred years ago half of these people arriving would have been considered illegal immigrants."

You're right. 100 years ago there were NO social welfare programs for immigrants - they either survived on their own with the help of family and friends or they went back to their home countries.

Americans are fully AWARE of WHY we're being inundated with immigrants both documented AND illegal - our kindness is being confused with weakness.

Sorry, but we're about to "set them straight" on WHO is confused - here's a hint: It's NOT Americans.

"After an undocumented worker from Mexico cut his face open with a chainsaw and recently collected $30,000, Carcieri said he would file legislation to end workers' compensation benefits for illegal workers. Carcieri is already under fire for eliminating the jobs of three Southeast Asian interpreters last year, part of a reduction of 1,000 state jobs."

Oh yeah, THIS is really the type of Mexican who I WANT living in my neighborhood - NOT!!!

He should have been COMMITTED to a psychiatric facility, but instead he was REWARDED for his lunacy.

"There are so many bad people out there. Why don't they go and get them?" said Lilliana, speaking in Spanish as she shopped at a mini-market in Central Falls, which has one of the highest proportions of immigrants in the state. "Leave the working people alone."

That is exactly what we are doing!-- if you are Illegally in this country--you are a criminal--we will no longer turn a blind eye!--pack your bags!

If that illegal alien had not been illegaly working?

Again we see the deliberate rewording of facts in the debate.
excerpt;
Many immigrants were shaken by the arrest of Montufar, who had defied a deportation order. He also had convictions for disorderly conduct and domestic assault. In an especially dramatic turn, one of the Montufar family's boarders, David De La Roca, 27, was found hanged in an apparent suicide the day of Montufar's arrest. He was also an undocumented immigrant from Guatemala.

Lilliana, 34, an undocumented immigrant from Colombia, says one of her co-workers at a shoe factory breaks into a sweat when strangers enter the room, afraid they are immigration agents.

"There are so many bad people out there. Why don't they go and get them?" said Lilliana, speaking in Spanish as she shopped at a mini-market in Central Falls, which has one of the highest proportions of immigrants in the state. "Leave the working people alone."

We are not reading about immigrants, we are reading about illegal aliens who did not bother to be immigrants...

If the left-side of the GOP doesn't grow some conservative cojones, I fear that we'll only be left with limited "states rights" solutions. Conservatives need to start showing up at McCain rallies and voicing their sentiments.

This is an extremely uplifting story for any American who is affected by these 'unnecessary' burdens on American society.

I love the part where the mother says that she is applying for aid INSTEAD OF GETTING A JOB OR MOVING HOME WITH HER FAMILY.

TYPICAL, Typical, typical.

It's also very heartening to see that even some dems are getting behind the effort to root out the invaders. Way to go!

More and more states are becoming enlightened and enacting laws against the criminals WHO AREN'T SUPPOSED TO BE HERE. My state of IL will soon be surrounded by American states against illegals and will have to eventually succumb to the legal and citizen pressures to expel the invaders?

Keep the pressure on!
Keep it coming!

Let's see our newly elected president traitor try to overturn the laws and sentiments of almost every state in the union? This should be interesting?

Exactly. They should do the perp walk just like the SEC made the corporate criminals do.

It's because the businesses and the rich folks that are making money off of them DO want them here, and the major, liberal-based media play to the "poor, poor down-trodden immigrant without papers" garbage as a way of trying to "color" the issues in terms of racism and intolerance. If the American middle-class had a true voice, the world would know how the majority of Americans really feel. We are tired of helping illegal aliens invade our country and assisting them to maintain a social beachhead with our taxes and lousy politicians.
