It's probably a trade deal in order to get doctors and so called doctors to this country. Want to know where all the Medicare went? Its in villa's and large homes in India. They have names these estates..."Vee Must to take this test"...."Dis ohperation is Needed"...

If they work here they get taxed just like anybody else in their position would. If they go shopping they pay sales tax just like everyone else.

Some of these guys may not be the best doctors out there, but some are great. However, we should remember that even the mediocre ones are doing more for our community than many of the locals do. If we only recruited white doctors born in the U.S., then we would only be limiting our pool of talent and would decrease the quality of care for the region.

You realize English speaking people weren't the original people to this country anyway. When Europeans came the majority of the Native American population was killed off thanks to diseases brought over or just outright murder. So unless you're a Native American, you don't really have much room to complain about different people coming over here.

Noone asked for a history lesson. English speaking people may have not been the first settlers here but that ordeal of the white man taking over america was many centuries ago and it gets old. It is ours now and I agree with the person who started this thread. Many countries in the world if you are caught coming into illegaly you can be sentenced to prison time, hard labor, even death. Here if you come into illegaly theres a good chance you can spend most of your life without worry of persucution. You ever heard the saying if you cant take care of yourself you cant take care of others, jmo but this country needs extremely more strict immigration laws and really add as much personal as possible to border control because we have u.s citizens right here in america that are being denied help, jobs, etc, when you have some illegal than can come over here and have everything handed to them with a silver spoon like we owe them something. I dont blame the president for all of this because it has went on for years but he is making it just as worse with the bills he's attempting to pass to make it easier for them to gain u.s citizenship if their an illegal, It's just ridicoulous.

Why be a hater? We are all the same. We love our family, struggle with life, and try everyday. Why can't we love one another? I will not judge you, so you don't judge me. Jesus understood this why can't you.

The person who started this thread was talking about people from India, who by and large are coming here legally. These people tend to be doctors in our area. We live in an area where the population has been decreasing for decades, and since there's little to do here with a college degree many of our best and brightest move elsewhere. We desperately need to get good talent in this area, and it shouldn't matter if they're Indian, white, black, or whatever. This area of the state can't afford to be xenophobic; our economy is bad and limited enough as it is. We need people to move here. Plus, these guys are paying more in taxes than most of your white English speakers, and probably do more for the community. They aren't freeloaders by any means.

@Xena43,This is not a Religious School Session so don't bring that up,when all these Americans just want to know, Why is it ILLEGAL to Cross into Other countries but NOT HERE IN THE USA. AMERICA, YES was built from Europeans starting from the May Flower in 1492. This does NOT mean that Today, we as AMERICA should Still be allowing Any and Everybody who wants to come and live here ILLEGALLY and knowing that they are and trying to get away with it. NOW THIS PRESIDENT WANTS TO make All of the 17 MILLION ILLEGAL ALIENS HERE NOW INTO AMERICAN CITIZENS and think that the Real American people are Gonna go along with it, I THINK NOT!!! THIS HAS GOT TO STOP AND STOP NOW!!!

No great civilization stays on top forever, ask the Greeks and the Romans. Look around, the white race is slowly but surely being mixed with other races and sometime in the future if we survive there will only be one race, the human race.

This country was built on the backs of people from all over the world who built and worked and acquired. United States is a melting pot. We took in everyone and that makes us who we are and that is what makes this nation great. Its a bit late to shut out the cook's ingredients and think the soup won't go bad. The problem is welfare....and those who have to use it, and those who misuse it. To weed out the bad seeds from the seeds that need will be like trying to spot a bad mustard seed in a 50 pound bag of mustard seed. I can't begin to think how it can be done.

This country was founded on immigration. To get away from a country that was exactly the same as America is becoming. I saw where someone above me called it "our country now"
Well, you ignorant hillbilly.. How do you get it is OUR country when YOUR ancestors immigrated here theirselves?

I feel like if they work in this country then they should pay taxes in this country just like all American citizens. It's a shame they get more government services and more benefits that Americans that do work and pay taxes.

I am sorry if I offended you by bringing up Jesus. I was just trying to say we should just all get along. This country started as a melting pot and should continue to be one. You say other countries have closed boarders but they seem pretty open to me. I say let the Mexicans and who ever else wants to be in this country come. As long as they are legal and pay taxes like everyone else. Most are hard working, good citizens who just want a better life. Who are you to repress them and hold them down??

I agree with Ghost Rider...they could pay a big whallop of taxes..but our government does not make them pay those taxes. The money goes into their country and that is that.

Then why not make them citizens so they're not staying under the radar for fear of being caught or deported. If you make them legal, then they're under the same rules as everyone else.

I'm assuming where talking about those from Latin America now and not Indians as was originally referenced in the post, because the Indians around here are typically doctors and pay more in taxes than most of you all.

Also, you should also remember that right now there are lots of illegals here working with fake social security numbers. That means they're having social security taxes being taken out of their checks, but they'll never actually collect social security. Add that to the fact that white people aren't having very many kids anymore and the effect that's having on social security, and you'll quickly see that the Latino population is probably doing more to help social security than a lot of your native born white American citizens.

Ok no your wrong about that. Most Indians do not pay taxes. They go home for 30 days a year and don't pay American taxes. Now I say most not all. Think about it. Why would they pay that much money out when they can just go home and take a vacation for a month. If your so worried about the doctors then what about all the others here that are soaking up American tax dollars. Don't pay taxes cause they are not citizens. Oh I agree with you on making them citizens but they won't apply for citizenship so they have to pay taxes. We give them everything for free. Wlhy would they do that when a free ride is give to them.

So how does going home for 30 days get them out of paying taxes? I've never heard of that, and have no idea how that would be possible. I realize it could be and I'm just unaware, but I have a hard time believing that. Can you show me the loophole in the law that allows that?

Which taxes are you talking about? Just income taxes? Does this apply to capital gains taxes as well? I'm fairly certain they still pay sales tax though.

There is a law that allows them to work in this country and not be a citizen and not pay taxes as long as they return to there home country for 30 days. Ask one of the Indian doctors you may know.

We are all here illegally, just ask the native americans! Oh wait, their all dead because they didnt want us here. This country is based on immigration, I dont like anymore than the next person but it always comes around, you cant slaughter an entire race of people, take their land and then turn into a little bitch when someone tries to do the same thing. We would have to kill everyone to make you racist mofos happy.

Why do we welcome uneducated, close-minded, prejudiced, mouth-breathing-morons such as yourself?
