Nuh_, I do agree that this type of fraud has to stop, it drains funds needed elsewhere, to other family's.......I know it happens, but for the most part it does help out needy family's with kids. I'm not saying it's a perfect system, nothing is!

You know I was wondering how those two came over here, if they were so poor, get to live in an affluent college town, go to a college that most kids can only dream of and now I know. Too bad our American kids don't get the perks. The uncle was right, they're losers and couldn't assimilate into the US,, caused pain and suffering and we have the privilege of paying for it. Thanks for the links; a real eye-opener.

I am unsure - as you are - if they do or not...or if they just say they do or not.
However, if they DO actually vote Republican - well, obviously they are quite intelligent people. LOL
Nuh_, I talk to hardcore Republicans that bash Obama and his Liberal Policies. Yet as they tell me this they are scamming the government, by getting a temp. job, then going back on unemployment, having kids but not getting married. So I ask them, "Face to Face", are you collecting? and the reply is a fast, without even thinking about it, YES.
So I would say if they bash Obama and his Liberal policies and they are collecting, they are voting for a Republican ticket.

So, taxpayers PAID Islamic terrorists to learn how to bomb us. But the immigration bill introduced to the Senate a week and a half ago will fix that right?

The Gang of Eight made a promise that illegal immigrants will not be able to access public benefits, right?

Uhhhhhhh, NO.

If passed, the bill would allow illegal immigrants to access state and local welfare benefits immediately.

How’s that?

Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) uncovered this loophole in the bill and many others, and he will circulate a memo detailing the gaps in the bill on Tuesday.

“We already know that, once granted green cards and ultimately citizenship, illegal immigrants will be able to access all public benefit programs at a great cost to taxpayers.”

Under the proposed law, America’s 11 million illegal immigrants would be legalized within six months, when Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano submits her border security plan to Congress.

WOW! What a surprise. But there’s MORE!

“We have, however, identified a number of loopholes that would allow illegal immigrants to draw public benefits even sooner than advertised.”

Uh. Oh. LOOPHOLES! Built into the bill.

“And illegal immigrants would immediately be eligible for Registered Provisional Immigrant (RPI) status, making them legal to live and work in the country.” State laws frequently extend benefits to anyone ‘lawfully present’ in the U.S.

How’d that get past those rocket scientists?

In addition to that loophole, Sessions and his staff found several more loopholes that allow current illegal immigrants access to public benefits even on the federal level before the promised wait time of 13 years from the bill’s passage.

In the memo, Sessions’ staff notes that current illegal immigrants who are “granted RPI status will immediately become eligible for federal benefits through citizen and permanent resident dependents, with no requirement that they support their household as a condition of receiving or maintaining legal status.” That means any current illegal immigrant who subsequently has dependent children, who are, by right of birth, U.S. citizens would qualify for federal welfare benefits through them.

Have a kid? Getcher welfare heah!

The financial impact of allowing potentially millions of immigrants onto state and local public assistance could overwhelm these programs' budgets.

Whoops!

Again...you may say it over and over again - but it does not make your statement true.
Your 'facts' are nothing more than biased opinon based upon complete and utter myth.
No, based on exit polling, statements by GOP candidates (before and after they lost), etc.

The GOP is the party of old, white men and they have no desire to welcome anyone else into their party...even if it means more electoral losses. Younger generations are becoming less and less bigoted and it's showing in elections.

No, irrespective of what you're basing this idea upon it stands completely erroneous. Your thoughts are emblematic of the talking points you've tried to cram into previous posts in a failed effort to redefine the GOP. It may satisfy your twisted craving, but the strategy isn't working.

Those suffering your level of deception also throw these lies around like candy at a parade. This is exactly why morons of your ilk have convinced each other I am an "old-Man," repeating it in a chorus of rehearsed stupidity. Not that it's your business, but I am over two (2) decades away from retirement eligibility. I don't know what you think "OLD" is, but apparently it means anyone perceptibly more mature or intelligent than you are. This must be a foreboding proposition for you! Is this why you're so angry? Is this why you are so sad? Is this why you're so pathetic? Is this why you're such a liar?

You may not like it, but people read you a lot better than you think! You are obviously comfortable attempting to deceive stupid people with generalities like: Gop is comprised of old, white men; Gop is filled with bigots; Gop is for hateful people; Gop hates all women, Gop is unwelcoming, etectera. How stupid you appear!

I'll say this for you, you are a qualified Socialist!

Basically, the 'younger generation'- and low information voters in general - listen to what the lamestream 'media' bellows day after day...no matter the truth. The key to increasing the participation of black Americans in the Republican Party - and the 'younger generation'- is to counter the misinformation about the history of civil rights and hold the Democrats accountable for their racism—past and present

Many Democrats were racists, that is a fact, and Republicans WERE the party of civil rights as the Dems did their best to block movement on those matters.
Those roles have been reversed, and while I know many Republicans who are not racists, at this time in history, most racists are Republicans.
You seem to think that a political party....either one, can continually slap someone in the face and still get their vote. Well those who take that are what I consider low information voters.
You want to brag about the Republican history of advocating for civil rights, well that advocacy ended in 1968. Since then we have all heard the buzz words..."welfare queens", "young bucks", and dozens of others. I know what is meant by those....I'm from the south remember.

No, they have not. You may wish to discount the Democrat party's racist past (and present)- but to keep on spouting that it is the Republican party that is racist not only is becoming irritating; it shows your ignorance.

PEOPLE IN GENERAL ARE ALL RACIST. I can prove it. Forget politics. I have never heard or seen white people rush and kill themselves to go and live in a "black" neighborhood. I know black people that hate living in a ghetto type "black" neighborhood. The decent blacks kill themselves to get away from the thugs to live in a "better" neighborhood. No Atlanta is the big black place to live now for the well to do black folks. Now they over their are getting cute and not letting the whites share in the financial "Pie" They only do business with blacks. Many have two homes. At least one in Atlanta and one in Africa. The rich ones. Yes there are many rich blacks. Hell I am racist and don't give a crap about politics. I would sooner cut my throat than live in, near, or around non american middle easterns. I shiver and chit myself every single time I see them stupid females in there costumes. People prefer to be around their own kind. Period. We all know it. I just have the guts to admit it.

I've long been aware how Socialists attempt to marginalize all resistance to their propaganda. In fact, I volunteered for the job. Most are better at it than you, but you are persistent and determined, but then..so are cock-roaches.

I see you've adduced the words you want removed from the post. I understand why you think bully redaction might work for you here, Socialists are comfortable revising the US Constitution, public educational materials and history as well.

How many test observations are in your study group? Please bring legitimacy to this anecdotal blessing you've offered here. I would also like to understand your technique of information gathering in your sophisticated experiment.
