If Washington was by the people, for the people, then illegal immigration would be next to zero. But the last two, three decades has been a massive onslaught, far more than the Liberal media or this administration has admitted. Anybody who really believes there are only 11 million illegal aliens in the country must have been given a lobotomy at an early age? It will be a pox on both houses, as we all know that American workers are not going come out of this unscathed. After the series of illegal immigration bills, beginning with 1986 illegal aliens have been pouring across the mostly open border, or overstayed their visiting visas. Since accepting their first jobs Americans, legal migrants and immigrants have paid into Social Security and pensions for their future retirement, whereas illegal aliens turn up here and get everything for free. Unlike the average individual who has earned their retirement, illegal aliens can collect welfare money, never having paid a cent into Social Security or anything else. Today very few pay taxes, although they have no choice but spend money for gas or any other mandatory taxes. But it’s a well known fact that low income people can apply for all types of welfare, compliment of the working taxpayer and that includes illegal aliens with all their children. Whether after arriving here with their brood or start a rapid succession of conceiving babies once here, it’s a huge burden on the taxpayer for the instant citizenship entitlements. They march into the nearest emergency room, then after the birth walk out with no payment involved. Each child gets an EBT (food Stamps) card from the Obama administration, then cash payments in the name of the child and all the progeny. The more children illegal alien mothers have the less chance of being deported.

Before the financial calamity of immigration reform, we THE PEOPLE must demand full enforcement at the borders, with the double layer fence as designed under the order of President Bush. The 2006 Secure Fence act, was to me deliberately sabotaged by the Republicans. Both parties should agree to enact mandatory E-Verify, with all its provisions, along with rewriting the section in the 14th Amendment, to halt this atrocious cost of illegal alien Mothers claiming immediate citizenship for their children, so only parents of U.S. citizens need apply. This will dampen down the continuous financial expenditure of family chain migration, which of course removes the Dream Act that has also become an expensive proposition on taxpayers. Then overall, we must rescind the Social Security Number and all the fraud and abuse that have propagated along with its usage. In its stead, every American and legal resident must be issued with a NATIONAL PICTURE ID CARD, complete with thumbprint and retinal scan. Such a card will stop voter fraud, credit card theft and improve our safety. Further it could be used to verify a weapons buyer, and even more. It is the perfect answer to the major problems that are a problem for every honest American, but the legislator’s state it would cost too much? That to me is outrageous when hundreds of billions of dollars is spent on pandering to illegal aliens. The only reason it’s so expensive to the drooling idiots in Washington, is that it doesn’t conform to the demands of the special interests and all the corporations, otherwise cheap labor would be severed? You will find a petition at NumbersUSA to stop this travesty of the illegal alien invasion. Read more about the undeveloped border fence at AmericanPatrol and their surprising sensor “Sonic Barrier” that is far superior to the regular units they have on the border. AmericanPatrol can also illustrate to you the incompetence and intentional ignorance of the risks at the border, plus daily news and views that the Liberal press keeps concealed?

What can we expect from the oncoming illegal immigration mass Amnesty, this time? After the 1986 fiasco, I don’t trust either party involved, as the only people who collected on this massive elicit gift, was the 3.5 illegal aliens that expanded to 5 million and the business community. All the American people got out of it, was more extorted taxes, even more hordes of illegal immigration encouraged because the strict laws that were never enacted. Where the corporations are concerned their lobbyists were successful with their brown paper packages hidden in fridges, beautiful vacations around the world for the whole family and for, and with certain politicians a second summer home, brought and paid for, hidden away from the prying eyes of federal and state government ethics committees. If anybody thinks that anything has ever changed in Washington, forget it, because the special interest organization and PAC money, has already been offered the United States as a very expensive price? A few new faces have not been contaminated yet, but they haven’t smelt the rich aroma of currency; then promises of even more dollars to pile in their progressive campaign chests. It’s very sad that the Washington scene has become as corrupt as the governments of many foreign countries. These Special interest groups as Mark Zuckerberg and his billionaire lifestyle don’t live in same environment as normal people, he and his traitorous henchman in Washington political elite are not looking for a job or enough cash to pay a mortgage, put gas in the car.

When this nation is facing a 17 Trillion dollar deficit, President Obama and his minions, including the secret access of diehard Communists slipping into the Oval office, is determined to press for some kind of Comprehensive Immigration Reform, no matter the predicament to the wide spectrum of unemployed U.S. citizens and permanent residents. It’s very strange to me that there is a minimal response to circumstances from more people, of an assortment of lawmakers forcing a mass illegal immigration law towards a vote, without any public attendance, committees that are relevant to such a binding issue. There has been hardly any conversation about securing the border first, for as I see it and millions more these brainless idiots in Congress profess not caring. A few serious minded lawmakers do care, but the numbers are so few they are overwhelmed by the ranks of the elites, and really are ignored about the consequences for the main populace.

All immigrants pay taxes whether they are illegal or not. They pay them in the form of property tax - directly if they own a home, or indirectly if they rent; sales tax on all the goods they buy, and income tax at Federal, State and local level.
Since illegal immigrants often have fake documents, including fake Social Security numbers, the money they pay into the system is money that will never be withdrawn. The amount in question is evidenced by the Social Security Administration’s “suspense file”(taxes that cannot be matched to workers’ names and Social Security numbers), which grew $20 billion between 1990 and 1998.[1][2]

Immigrants come to work and to reunite with family members[citation needed].
Immigrant labor-force participation is consistently higher than native-born, and immigrant workers make up a larger share of the U.S. labor force (12.4%) than they do the U.S. population (11.5%). Moreover, the ratio between immigrant use of public benefits and the amount of taxes they pay is consistently favorable to the U.S., unless the “study” was undertaken by an anti-immigrant group.[citation needed] In one estimate, immigrants earn about $240 billion a year, pay about $90 billion a year in taxes, and use about $5 billion in public benefits. In another cut of the data, immigrant tax payments total $20 to $30 billion more than the amount of government services they use.[3]
Since the welfare reform of 1996, when limits were implemented cutting off benefits to two years consecutively or five years cumulatively, this is a bogus accusation.
To immigrate into the US, you must have a sponsor (generally the family member, such as the spouse, bringing you into the country) who will testify that he or she has enough money to support you, if you are unable to support yourself, or if you lose your job. This agreement means that within the first 5 years of living in the US, you cannot take welfare. Your family member will be assessed a penalty if you demand it.[citation needed]

Wrong, again, on so many levels. you continue to mix illegal aliens in with legal immigrants, though the groups are vastly different.

People in the county illegally are eligible for disability payments and workman's comp. they are also eligible for subsidized housing. President Obama's aunt is a perfect example. She entered the country illegally, filed for and was awarded disability payments less than a year later, was ordered deported, ignored the order, applied for asylum, was denied, and has been living in Government paid for housing the entire time.

The 5-year bar was repealed several years ago..... Pregnant and nursing illegal aliens collect food stamps and housing vouchers on behalf of their anchor babies. Immigrant Seniors can collect SS payments from a system they have never contributed 1 penny into.

Anyone can claim to have multiple dependents so NO federal or state tax is withheld from their

Anyone (no SSN required) can file for a refund/payout for their dependents--like the 4 illegal wetbacks living in a trailer in CO who claimed 22 dependents and collected more than $30,000.00

In many states, food is exempt from Sales tax.

Again, LEGAL immigrants are subject to rules and laws, including waiting in line, and being denied entry if they are likely to become a public charge or fail a health screening. Apparently they still let stupid people in, as you have proven with your continuous ignorant posts. It's called Google, honey, you should try it.

I am not concerned with angering "Latinos" , illegal aliens or those who are potential maternity tourists.
I believe US Citizen voters would overwhelmingly support this and that should be the ONLY group that has a say in it or matters.
Rubio should keep his mouth shut then. He's an anchor baby.
