Just wondering how much of the money being sent back comes from the Connecticut wealfare system?
Sending money back to one's homeland hurts the U.S. economy.

Taking money out of the U.S. economy reduces the demand for services and the country does not benefit from the full impact of the multiplier effect.

Therefore, for all of those who think that sending money to another country is laudable, please realize that they are doing it to the detriment of all Americans.

Send them all back where they belong. If they aren't legal - round them up and send them back south of the border where they belong.If any of us went to live in their countries, just how many freebies do you think we would get from them - NADA!
