Again illegal aliens kill citizens as they drive. No respect for the law by not following our generous Legal, "Path to Citizenship".

the article states:"Mr. Rodriguez drove east, pulling a loaded trailer. An illegal immigrant from Mexico, Mr. Rodriguez had used a fake Social Security number to get a Texas commercial driver's license six years earlier. He had found steady work around North Texas driving rock trucks and other 18-wheelers, his history of immigration arrests and truck safety violations ignored or overlooked" close quotes on article.

Betsy Ross and many others Insist we use common sense: Enforce our current Laws. Those who violate law to get here and Choose not to follow the paths to citizenship, break other laws...continue to break the laws.

If these illegals use our social security numbers the IRS...the earned income causes our records to show "UNDECLARED Earned Income"... we then pay fines, is up to the citizen to proove their innocense.

The so called 'comprehensive immigration reform' Protects the illegals Not the citizens. The illegals using our social security numbers, or ones forged.... Collect Earned Income-Tax credits.

***May 23, 2007 Senator Sessions: Earned Income Tax Credit***
I just want to mention two or three things I think about that. One is citizenship. You don't get citizenship if you break into this country illegally. You don't receive some of the benefits we would give, such as the earned-income tax credit. The earned-income tax credit was designed to help people with families, who are poor, but who do work. It was an idea that went back to the Nixon days. The theory was there was not enough distinction between the income you could get staying home on welfare and actually going out and working. So they tried to incentivize and encourage poor people to see the advantage of work and would give them the earned-income tax credit, which a lot of people do not know is $41 billion a year in expenditures, which is a lot of money designed to help poor people.
Conservatives talk about it, others talk about it, but fundamentally it was designed to incentivize work for American working poor, particularly if they had children. The average recipient of the earned-income tax credit in America receives from $1,700 to $2,000 a year. That is designed to help them work."

cont excerpts:

May 23, 2007 Congressional record article 47 of 50
(Senator Pete Sessions: Earned-Income Credit S1348)
"But if somebody comes to our country illegally, I see no reason they should be rewarded with the earned-income tax credit; nor should they get Social Security benefits if they

paid benefits over a false Social Security number, working under a fraudulent name in a business where they were illegal. They should not get those benefits."

Those were excerpt quotes from: Congressional Record article 47 of 50.

(the following are my comments: This truck driver and all others using fradulant social security numbers are given the Right to collect "Earned Income-Tax Credit"... this is one example of the very large cost to tax payers.. We pay the cost when they collect these so called credits.)

This truck driver used a fake social security number.

We must insist our current laws be enforced. The massive legislation does not protect the tax payers it in fact Cost us massive amounts of money. The earned income tax credit is but one small example

"Ms. Hughes' son, Shiloh, 14, and mother, Joyce Watkins, 70, died almost instantly. Ms. Hughes, 38, and her 17-year-old daughter, Afton Hughes Royse, married and pregnant with twins, died in a Fort Worth hospital.
The lone survivor in the SUV was Afton's infant son, Jagr Royse. Mr. Rodriguez was uninjured.'
