They can rationalize anything. Anything that doesn't require that they take responsibility for their actions!!!! It's always on us!

They've always had free health care, at our expense. Do any of the anchor mama's know who pays for them??? Do you believe that when they drop children like rabbit's they will be billed. I've worked in health care for many, many year's, and our premiums and co-pays, pay for millions of Mexicans. Like Juan from Pearland Texas. Do you think he gave one penny to the Doc's that treated him??? The greatest burden to our Country are entitlements given to illegal aliens. Don't think we shouldn't stop this? You and I pay everyday, extra tax, and extra everything to support these invaders and pump up the rich.

It appears immigrants are already beneficiary to expensive taxpayer provided Government health care. For example, Government is expected to spare no taxpayer provided expense to provide medical care for the captured Boston bomber.
On the other hand, as it is being reported by the foreign press, overtaxed native born bombing victims are not so fortunate. It has been estimated that the expensive Government controlled medical industry will charge bombing victims in excess of $9 millions Dollars.
Overtaxed and underrepresented American taxpayers are coming together to meet the challenge. For example, more than 8,200 hard working taxpayers have donated over $334,000 towards the medical cost that one victim is facing.

On top of all that. The taxpayer is paying the government workers expensive healthcare and benefits, who provide this healthcare to the criminals/terrorists.

just more proof illegal aliens do not contribute. these folks think we are all blind,impoting poverty and pushing for more poverty is sickening.
so much also for the lies saying illegal aliens are not all leaches and thieves. if these folks were here only to work they would not have their hands out and would go home,yet once again their own actions prove facts.

Alien, Immigrant, Illegal Alien, Undocumented Immigrant
These related terms are often used in deliberately confusing and conflicting
ways. Here is a set of definitions that will help you sort out the
IMMIGRANT: In popular usage, an "immigrant" is generally understood to be a
person who migrates to another country, usually for permanent residence.
Under this definition, therefore, an "immigrant" is an alien admitted to the
U.S. as a lawful permanent resident. The emphasis in this definition is
upon the presumptions that (1) the immigrant followed U.S. laws and
procedures in establishing residence in our country; (2) he or she wishes to
reside here permanently; and (3) he or she swears allegiance to our country
or at least solemnly affirms that he/she will observe and respect our laws
and our Constitution.
ALIEN: By contrast, an "alien" is generally understood to be a foreigner --
a person who comes from a foreign country -- who does not owe allegiance to
ILLEGAL ALIEN: An "illegal alien" is a foreigner who (1) does not owe
allegiance to our country; and (2) who has violated our laws and customs in
establishing residence in our country. He or she is therefore a criminal
under applicable U.S. laws.
The term "illegal alien" is used by U.S. citizens who believe that
non-citizens entering our country must comply with our immigration laws.
The term "illegal alien" is predicated upon U.S. immigration law
which requires foreigners entering the U.S. to comply with our country's
rules and laws regarding entry into, and residence within, our country.
UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANT: The term "undocumented immigrant" is an oxymoron
(the parts conflict). An immigrant is synonymous with "permanent legal
resident." The old term for the document authorizing a permanent legal
resident is "green card." The term "undocumented" is derived from the
accurate term "undocumented aliens" who are often called "border crossers."
Proper terms are "illegal alien" or "undocumented alien" but not
"undocumented immigrant." Although not commonly used, the term "documented
alien" accurately refers to foreign nationals who have an unexpired
non-immigrant visa such as H-1B.
Most U.S. citizens do not use the term "undocumented immigrant"
and prefer, instead, the more descriptive and accurate term "illegal alien".
The term "undocumented immigrant" is used by those who believe in
"open borders", i.e., non-regulation of foreigners entering into and
assuming residence in the U.S., including even those foreigners who owe
allegiance to a foreign government and/or who may intend harm to the U.S.

I gave up on CA when they started decreasing the amount of Cal Grant awards for citizen student in order to give awards to illegal aliens!!!!! I kid you not!!!! Check it out for yourselves!!!!
Not only that, a LOT of foreigners who come to America to, "...better their lives" REALLY don't like America nor Americans!!! They come to take, both legal and illegal. A good case in point are the recent bombers! They had/have no allegiance to America what so ever!!! NONE!!!! They wanted to USE America, but not become American...(yes, I know about the naturalization part, this different)
Yet, these poor huddled masses sought asylum! Mom arrested last yr for shoplifting @ Lord & Taylor! Ever wonder why both parents are back in wherever and the kiddies are still here, and one went back about a year ago? I thought they sought asylum, as in you are too scared to go back home! numersusa.com
I am not against LEGAL CONTROLLED immigration based on the needs of the America people only! I think this should be the basis for any plan!

we all knew helping illegal aliens was going to mean citizens losing out of these things. seems those pushing this nonsense sees American citizen college students as not as worthy of this help as illegal aliens.
