I totally agree with you. In the current state of our national debt, how do we keep finding money for immigrants to become US citizens?$100,000????? I can think of 100,000 other ways to spend the money where it is truly needed! And them becoming citizens is not one of them! This is BS!

Shouldn't IU focus on educating the IPs, the troubled, the deviant, and the out of control students that should be kept out of the normal school hallways until they can fit in again ??

I am sorry are you native american? i would rather have immigrants that are citizens that can speak english than those that can't. oh and remember LEGAL immigrants pay just as much taxes as you do, so if they can become citizens they can actually vote without that its call taxation without representation aka something America fought for back in the day. What is BS is you thinking 100,000 is going to solve the national debt problem which is in the trillions thats 7 - 0s added on ;)

First of all....I never said that amount of money would get us out of the debt problem we currently have. I am merely concerned with the amount of effort and money that is constantly being put forth for unnecessary reasons. How are they going to survive here with us? There are no jobs for some people right now so you know that some of them will feed off of our welfare system until they are able to find work and that is not fair to the people here who so desperately need it. Trust me, I am all for each and every one of them learning how to speak English and pay taxes like the rest of us but again, how long is that going to take? I am not racist nor am I ignorant to what is going on in this world. I am simply stating my opinion. We all have one unfortunately, mine are a little different from others. Where is Orkin Man and Funky Tut to back me up on this situation????? LOL.

Maryland’s Democratic Governor Calls Illegal Immigrants ‘New Americans

( CNSNews.com )– Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, in his first televised debate with Republican challenger Bob Ehrlich, repeatedly referred to people who come to this country illegally as “new Americans” on Monday night.
In response to a question, O’Malley called illegal immigration “a huge challenge for our country” and he said the federal government needs to “do a better job” of enforcing the nation’s borders.

illegal immigration = another democrat vote
