It is a great scam. All they have to do is wait until the kid turns 18 so they can apply themselves and then they are set.
Come on, even you must think that this is a pretty pitiful way to force the taxpayers to support them and their lifestyles. What ticks me off even ore is seeing how they use the funds on their EBT cards for things other than food. It's a joke, and who loses out, their own kids, that they blatantly use as pawns and shields. It's all a big, bad joke on the taxpayers. It's bad enough that legal citizens pull this garbage, but it's even more disgusting when folks who are here illegally pull these stunts, and the taxpayers are just supposed to grin and bear it.

Teddy the joke was on you. I was merely pointing out the absurdity of the scam you allege. Any scam with an 18 year incubation period is not much of a scam.

You have to get off of this obsession you have with welfare. Last week anybody who buys Pampers brand products is a illegal immigrant welfare cheat. This week people are hatching 18 year long plots to get subsidized discount. You get yourself worked up of silly things.

Actually, if you are a taxpayer, the joke is on you as well as every other taxpayer.

There several reports that put the use of our entitlement system to be as high as 85% of all immigrants.

So you take something produced by FAIR and two other links that reference the same thing. Kind of silly in
isn't it?

FAIR and their silly "data" has been exposed as fraudulent so many times it is not worth even commenting on, but just for kicks let me point put that they simply lumped every immigrant together without making a distinction between legal and illegal immigrants. Meaningless.

Oooh, the Southern Poverty Law Center says FAIR is extreme. It wants the millions of subhuman vermin that have invaded our country deported. That's not extremism, that's common sense. BTW, the initials of the Southern Poverty Law Center spell splc. Coincidence?

Oh. They declared them selves "non-discriminatory" . That changes everything.

Why is it do you suppose that their founded John Tanton has been quoted as saying “for European-American society and culture to persist requires a European-American majority, and a clear one at that.”?

LOL!!!

Quote:

"The Far West Regional Office of the National Council of La Raza, a known racist organization (La Raza, literally translated, means 'the race'), is based in Phoenix, Arizona. Yet this known racist organization is not listed on the SPLC hate map.

Neither are any of the other eight regional offices,
two of which are based in California. The confrontation, on February 4, 2008, between CNN's Lou Dobbs and Janet Murguia, president and CEO of the National Council of La Raza, aired live for all to hear (transcript read here, live segment heard here). It became readily apparent, during the segment, that Murguia believes anyone who does not agree with her pro-illegal-alien agenda should be denied their first amendment rights and their second amendment rights; repeatedly claiming, without substantiating her claims, that those opposing illegal-aliens in the U.S. are armed
vigilantes who spew hate. Rather sounds like the SPLC whom Murguia
referenced repeatedly as the source of much of her vitriolic claims.

Neither is The Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund (MALDEF) listed with seven regional offices, nation-wide. The co-founder of MALDEF, Mario Obledo, has stated, "California is going to be a Hispanic state and anyone who doesn't like it should leave." Now, if that isn't racist, what is?

Also not listed on the SPLC website as a hate group is the Progressive Labor Party of California, a pro-illegal-immigrant communist group who has started at least one violent confrontation with anti-illegal-immigrant groups gathered to peacefully demonstrate and request redress of grievances with their government.

These are just three pro-illegal-immigration groups that do not appear on the SPLC "hate map". There is undoubtedly many more
anti-American/pro-illegal-inva sion-of-America/pro-Aztlan-ove rthrow-of-America websites that do not appear on the SPLC "hate map".

Why not?
