Funny, I was re-reading my copy of the Bill of Rights, and nowhere do I see the phrase "habeas corpus" or "all people". I certainly see habeas corpus enshrined in Article One of the Constitution, which spells out the powers of the Federal government, but not in the Bill of Rights.

Given that my pets are here legally, why wouldn't I treat my treat them better?

I emailed Ruben and got an automatic response saying he was away for a few days and to refer all my questions or story ideas to another guy.

Probably just touching base with the Mexican embassy, to see what his next column should say.

There is a reason why they are called "Anchor babies". Trying to use the children to protect themselves from US immigration laws is part of why they are called that.

Ruben Rosario has made a career of making up psuedo victims and putting the blame everywhere but where it belongs. I tend to skip his columns but sometimes it's like eating a hot pepper; I know it's gonna hurt, but I just can't resist. This article is a good example.

I do have a certain amount of sympathy for these families. But then I always have to remember if keeping the family intact meant so much to these criminals, they wouldn't be criminals. They'd step up and jump through the hoops required to become a legal citizen. Problem solved. Therefore, I can only assume keeping kids/family intact is secondary to being a criminal.Nice going Ruben.

If I lost my home I could just enter Mexico in an illegal manor and collect free housing, food, energy, and health care right? Oh wait a minute, Mexico doesn't tolerate illegal immigration.

Maybe the next article will be "Ruben Rosario traumatized after reading the posts on his article".

Ruben's whole chain of thinking is off. Parents put children in this position by breaking laws. We're entitled as a sovereign nation to a border. Ruben has a modest income, so the money he's talking about forking over isn't his, but rather someone else's. Generosity means giving away your own things, not the things of others (I wish the Catholic church got this point too).

Children of illegal aliens cost county welfare $44 million in March - Up $1 million from last month


http://www.the-signal.com/news/article/12489/

LOS ANGELES COUNTY - Figures from the Department of Public Social Services show that children of illegal aliens in Los Angeles County collected more than $21 million in welfare and more than $22 million in food stamps in March 2009 -- an increase of $1 million from the previous month, according to a news release from Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich.

Annually the cost of illegal immigration to Los Angeles County taxpayers exceeds one billion dollars, which includes $220 million for public safety,$400 million for healthcare, and $500 million in welfare and food stamps allocations, according to the news release.

Twenty-four percent of the county's total allotment of welfare and food stamp benefits goes directly to the children of illegal aliens born in the United States, according to Antonovich's statement.

"Illegal immigration continues to have a devastating impact on Los Angeles County taxpayers," Antonovich said in the statement. "The total cost for illegal immigrants to county taxpayers exceeds $1 billion a year - not including the millions of dollars for education."

I work in Human Resources at a company, we advertised 2 housekeeping jobs this week and had over 400+applications. I am positive there is at LEAST 2 citizens or legal immigrants in the bunch. What jobs won't Americans do?

I just hired a housekeeper/nanny for my children, and got about 30 applicants, only two were legal...I didn't even consider them if they weren't. See if you look hard enough and arent willing to compromise you can get quality american workers. If the illegals can't find jobs they won't be here....

It amazes me no end to see that taxpayers money is going to fund illegal activities. I paid my taxes so that the public school could continue, plus paid tuition at a Catholic School so that my children would receive the best education, and now I am paying for children that should not even be here. The government will pay for children of the illegals but will not pay for my children to receive a good education.

children born here are not supposed to be given automatic citizenship if their parents are illegal.

It was written into the Constitution so that it would protect the children of slaves who were born here.

It was never written to protect illegal immigrants who decided to have children while they were here to work.

Right! Only legal immigrant's children are citizens, NOT, visitors, vacationers, or people working here.
