Why Are Illegal Aliens on U.S. Welfare?

There are 335 comments on the www.rightsidenews.com story from May 13, 2009, titled Why Are Illegal Aliens on U.S. Welfare?. In it, www.rightsidenews.com reports that:

Some people mistakenly think that immigrants are not eligible for welfare. Several years ago, Congress did attempt to render immigrants ineligible for most forms of welfare. However, subsequent backpedaling by Congress and the executive branch has undone most of those reforms. Furthermore, many immigrant families get welfare through the eligibility of their U.S. citizen children. (It is also important to realize that even when immigrants are ineligible for federal welfare programs, the burden of their support is simply shifted over to the state and local welfare agencies.)

And for some reason its always easier to force Americans to pay for this then to actually enforce the laws. Its always easier to punish Americans and take away our rights.

Why Are Illegal Aliens on U.S. Welfare?

Because the CONgress and SENate gets rewarded by lobbyist?

Because the CONgress and SENate sold the Americans out?

Because the CONgress and SENate are traitors?

Becuase the CONgress and SENate lies to the American people?

Remember this, the people of the original Thirteen Colonies were white. The drafters of the US constitution were white. Whenever you pick up an American history book you will see whites. You may become a citizen but you will never be a True Blue American, just like obama.

Because after the NAU is established the hispanics will probably be on welfare anyway so our evil government
says "now or later, whats the difference".

For a while.. I have no idea if it is still happening.. the Mexican Mafia types were offering three I.D.s for $1,500 in most of the major parks in Mexico. The Mexicans would buy them, come north, and when they got here, use them.. sell them.. what ever.

You get to the United States with a fake I.D. and you use that one when you apply for welfare. In the meantime, you use one of the other I.D.s to get a job.

SOME of the illegal aliens are on welfare because they cannot speak English, and can only do menial jobs. Those folks are entitled to WICS. Some of them are on welfare because they have multiple I.D.s.

Keep this in mind: in poorer communities in this country, if you have someone there renting one of the towns old and ugly houses and collecting welfare, you have someone putting money into the local economic system. Welfare recipients are goooooood business where that is the .only. business. Congress is so busy patting each other on the butt and telling themselves what good people they are, they really can't be bothered with looking at the problem.

Welfare recipients putting taxpayers money into the local economic system is not good for business.

It is akin to moving your wallet from your left pocket to your right and then counting how much money you just made.

What good is the business if it is welfare money?

Birthright citizenship...eliminate it, and illegals will stop having baby after baby, if they can no longer tap into our free social services system. I can't even imagine how people justify living off their children's welfare. Why have we allowed personal irresponsibility to bloom out of control in this country?

The same reason that illegal aliens in Europe all flock to Briton. Lots of free money with very few questions. And if someone questions you. you scream that they are xenophobes. And if that does not work, you just change to another ss number from legal American. There are cultures that believe that taking things from Americans is not a crime, but and opportunity to be taken.

For all the arguments against socialist Europe, the one thing that they have very right is that from the time someone is 18 they get finger printed by the police and a picture ID with their national ID information(ss) on it. If you lose it and just claim you only know the number, any social agency can pull up your old picture and check the picture. Some even have facial recognition ability. If there is a dispute, the police will compare finger prints. The process of getting identification can take so long that a person will have to be quite dedicated to the pursuit of fraud in order to follow the required steps. You can't even hire a exterminator without this number and picture ID to prevent credit card fraud. They have taken steps like this to protect their people, which is why they give us blank stares when we complain that they are not helping us fight fraud from abroad. We have the ability to do the same thing too.
For countries that we sometimes believe are so far behind us, they can be light years ahead. This is something that we desperately need for the next group of kids that will be turning 18 next year. This would decrease fraud and may even lower the welfare roles from people who are not entitled to it. It would also show which workers at the agencies who are going along with the fraud. They would have to enter their own information in order to enter false information.

Help President Obama in reporting all businesses, home owners and day labor sites that hire illegal aliens to your State for non payment of payroll taxes. DO IT FOR THE AMERICAN CHILDREN of unemployed American Citizens.
You can also report suspected welfare fraud by illegals and don't forget the ever popular calling CPS if you feel an illegal child is being abused by illegal aliens, not your decision to call but your duty to report.
