Look Skippy you CANT compare Immigration today too 19th century and before WELFARE Medicaid didnt exist until Dem Johnson in 64 passed the War of Poverty.. Then in 1970 SSI was created and in that bill it had under certain circumstances and conditions and Illegal/immigrant can receive SSI.. Hence as you say, Mexican Illegal anchor babies were automatically eligible for Dems entitlement/welfare and because of the baby the Mother can get SSI..<quoted text>But frankly, neither were Italian and Eastern European immigrants in the '20s and '30s.Nor were Irish immigrants in the 19th century. I always find it amusing when some blow hard Irish-American carries on about how the dirty, ignorant, lazy, uneducated Mexicans should be tossed out of the country, when that is the exact same thing native born Americans said about their ancestors.
I come from "peasant" Eastern European and Irish stock (as I'll bet many of you did as well). My ancestors were working class and treated as inferiors by the "real 'Murricans" of their day. It was wrong then, and it's wrong now.
What you also fail to realize that Qualm you have is from the deep past. Todays issue reasoning ate NOT based on the same things.. Back then it was all about Religion etc NOT MURDERS and Trash and Sucking off the Taxpayers money effecting a nation in cost and safety. Many of the Issue you refer to were Block-to-Block issues, which was NOT a Money Crime Issues like today. The Dynamics has changed and obviously you dont get it and broad stroke things.
It never ceases to amaze me that a Person THINKS they are intelligent and yet uses a BROAD stroke to prove a point that cant be proven.
