The only thing an illegal should "reap" is a ticket back to where they came from.

Illegal workers don't have a right to those benefits because they are here illegally, which is their own fault.

I'm all for immigrants who come here(legally)looking for a better life but i'm sick and tired of hearing all the sob stories about people who are here illegally. Enter our country legally and you will be welcomed with open arms.

'Illegals' medical bills top $35.7M (just in MA)

Beleaguered Bay State and U.S. taxpayers coughed up a staggering $35.7 million this year in free emergency health care for more than 52,000 illegal aliens in Massachusetts, sparking outrage from candidates and critics who back a tougher line on immigration.

The figures — released by Gov. Deval Patrick’s administration under an order for the Secretary of State’s office and after more than a month of ducking questions — show illegal immigrants who belong to MassHealth Limited received $33.8 million in taxpayer-funded in-patient hospital care this year.

They also made 6,160 visits to the state’s overburdened emergency rooms in the fiscal year ending in June for an additional cost of $1.9 million, a Herald analysis shows.

The national suicide continues...

Also why people that get apoplectic about Mittens McRomney becoming president are out of their collective minds- "Obamacare will bankrupt the US as Mittenscare will mASS.

What is a "benefit"? Roads, healthcare, education, police, fire, and every thing else are not benefits? Or are you mearly talking about the manditory payroll taxes (if their employers aren't paying them under the table in the first place) and them not getting a SS pay out? How about you look deeper and see if their kids are getting SS benefits or any other assistances?

Let's impeach Obama if he refused to enforce the law regarding illegal immigration. They all need to be deported ASAP. No appeals, no anchor babies, no ER care, no NADA. Go home and work on your crime ridden, corrupt country. Straighten out your own mess.

Lets Not forget the illegal immigrant that Hit a School Bus and Killed Children on the Bus in Minnesota
. Illegal immigration costs U.S. taxpayers about $113 billion a year at the federal, state and local level. The bulk of the costs — some $84 billion — are absorbed by state and local governments.
The annual outlay that illegal aliens cost U.S. taxpayers is an average amount per native-headed household of $1,117. The fiscal impact per household varies considerably because the greatest share of the burden falls on state and local taxpayers whose burden depends on the size of the illegal alien population in that locality
Education for the children of illegal aliens constitutes the single largest cost to taxpayers, at an annual price tag of nearly $52 billion. Nearly all of those costs are absorbed by state and local governments.
At the federal level, about one-third of outlays are matched by tax collections from illegal aliens. At the state and local level, an average of less than 5 percent of the public costs associated with illegal immigration is recouped through taxes collected from illegal aliens.
Most illegal aliens do not pay income taxes. Among those who do, much of the revenues collected are refunded to the illegal aliens when they file tax returns. Many are also claiming tax credits resulting in payments from the U.S. Treasury.

With many state budgets in deficit, policymakers have an obligation to look for ways to reduce the fiscal burden of illegal migration. California, facing a budget deficit of $14.4 billion in 2010-2011, is hit with an estimated $21.8 billion in annual expenditures on illegal aliens. New York’s $6.8 billion deficit is smaller than its $9.5 billion in yearly illegal alien costs.

When will the madness Stop! We need to Protect these illegal immigrants and their children! SO let make ICE do their JOB and DEPORT all these poor illegal immigrants and their children back to whatever country they came FROM. CONFISCATE ALL their WORLDLY POSSESSIONS and Sale their Possessions at Public Auction and use the Money to Help Pay for Social services for Legal Immigrants and United States Citizens. Deport more of these poor illegal immigrants Back to their Homeland Broke. That way it will discourage them to Stay at their Homeland, People not to come to United States without PROPER PAPERS. Illegal immigrants and their children ARE costing United States Taxpayers BILLIONS of Dollars. People who support illegal immigrants and their children Need to support these people in their own Homeland.

Officials with the U.S. Department of Agriculture have been quietly assuring illegal immigrants that taking food stamps and other government assistance won’t slow their paths toward citizenship.
The agency’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program addresses the point: The brochure asks,“If I get on SNAP benefits, will I be a ‘public charge?’”
The brochure then answers:“No. You and your family can apply for and receive SNAP benefits without hurting your chance of becoming U.S. citizens.”
The Daily Caller reported on the brochure, which was part of a packet the USDA gives Mexican consulates for distribution among various Mexican communities in the United States.
The Census Breau reports that heads of households born in Mexico are more likely than any other nationality to take some form of government food assistance.
More than 45 percent are on food assistance, according to March 2011 Census figures, The Daily Caller reports. By way of comparison, just under 14 percent of native-born Americans use food stamps, the report continued.

Here is a report titled:“Immigration: Noncitizen Eligibility forNeeds-Based Housing Programs”
http://www.fas.org/sgp/crs/homesec/RL31753.pd...

As you read it you will think illegals do not receive housing, but if you read all of this you will read:

Many households that include U.S. citizens or qualified aliens also include ineligible aliens (e.g.,
unauthorized aliens). Section 214 of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1980, as
amended, requires HUD and local public housing authorities to provide prorated assistance to
families in which at least one member has eligible immigration status. A prorated housing benefit is calculated by reducing the benefit due to the family by the proportion of nonqualified aliens in the household.”

~ quote
We asked HUD ourselves. A spokesman could find no published report on illegal immigrants in HUD housing. HUD does require information on citizenship when people apply for assistance. Public housing and vouchers represent the bulk of HUD’s subsidized housing. The agency (HUD) says 96 percent of those residents are citizens and about 4 percent are legal immigrants.
http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/state...

[Explanation: The legal immigrants are four percent – that would be the children, the anchor babies.
96% are citizens – that makes 100%. Statistically HUD ignores the illegal immigrants parents.]

~~~~
~quote
Applicants for subsidized housing must be citizens or legal immigrants. Sullivan notes that undocumented immigrants are allowed to live in subsidized housing if at least one member of the household is in the country legally. Typically, this happens when undocumented parents have a child in the U.S. Anyone born here is automatically a citizen and the parents could then rent in a HUD-subsidized property. In these cases, HUD reduces the subsidy for each undocumented person in the unit.
[Explanation: if income is zero, rent from illegal is zero. Zero reduced, is still zero.]
~quote
The closest but unverified estimate we could find for illegal occupants in HUD housing is less than 1 percent nationwide. The claim of 60 percent is ridiculously false.
[Reminder; This does not include the CHILDREN, who also get food stamps, free school lunches, Medicaid, more.]
