Criminals should never be rewarded, all illegal aliens are criminals and need to be deported, period.

legal or illegal, citizen or no citizen. QUIT using my tax dollars to fund them. This is a joke and the joke is on us.
illegals are coming in by the millions and looking for handouts. And getting handouts for FREE.
Somebody stop that crap.

the majority of public assistance recipients are white

70% of Welfare and Public Assistance Recipients are White; 66.66% of Food Stamp Recipients are White

White Americans, poor and middle-class alike, receive the vast majority of tax-funded government assistance programs, from monthly assistance to Social Security to food stamps.

the New York Times published a series of related articles showing that poor whites across Appalachia and the Mississippi Delta and through the Midwest, Deep South and Texas borderlands were the highest percentage of Americans relying on the SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program), or food stamp, program.

According to the New York Times, 36 million Americans relied on food stamps. More than 24 million of them were white

Some undocumented immigrants pay taxes. We are not solicitating, we work and pay annual taxes.

Don't be a tool.
First, the number of food stamp recipients is 50 million now. Is it a coincidence this comes after 4 years of the Obama administration advertising the program in Mexico?
Second, many Hispanics ( not a race) are classified as...you guessed it....white.
Third, based upon percentage of the overall population, Latinos and Blacks are a disproportional share of welfare recipients.

Considering that roughly 80% of all hispanic ethnicities are white race then the welfare numbers make sense.

Local sales taxes but not likely income taxes unless using a false SS# or other fraud like ITIN which are only for legal immigrants with a VISA or Green Card.
Bet illegals do not pull out a wad of cash at the hospital and pay their bills... They sure are quick to sign up for food stamps and public housing too as soon as one drops an anchor on American soil.

Since you are illegal, I assume you don't get a paycheck and the Government doesn't take any taxes out of your check.You probably don't pay property taxes either. So please tell me what kind you pay?
