When the U.S.“acquired”(sic) the vast Mexican territories in 1848, the land came with people. In my home state of Texas, several large founding families with roots dating to the mid-1500’s were divided by the new border: among them the Longorias, the Inclans, the Floreses, and the Villarreals. The depth of Spanish culture in the Southwest is revealed in the names and architecture of towns—Santa Fe, Los Angeles, San Antonio among many, many others; the omnipresent missions, the streets and suburbs still bearing the names of land grant owners—Boronda, Bernal, Berryessa, Vallejo; and the nicknames of the Hispanic-Mestizo pre-1848 populations: Tejanos, Californios and "Manitos," not to mention the cultural fiber—celebrations, language, customs.

When the people who are responsible for our country ask you a direct question, I expect them to accept a direct answer, not to be blackballed because you are telling the truth. Eartha Kitt http://www.searchquotes.com/quotation/When_th...
And had Mexico prevailed, then the same would be true today concerning "founding families" with French or British names. You will note that none of them are "native" names, nor do they speak native tongues or celebrate native culture, religions, language or customs. And you seem to completely dismiss the fact that those Spaniards were no less invaders than the British were. Both of those European anglo powers were playing the same game.
The French "discovered" Canada...yet today, they have one single province. Should they take back the rest? Or at least the eastern provinces?
If all the peoples of the world were sent back to the places of their native origins, 90% of the worlds population would have to pick up and move.
So, again, what is your point?

Godd grief, it quite obvious. Let's look at the usual scenario. "Geraldo: uses a fake a driver's license and a fake SS card that was forged or simply made up and purchased at a flea market. With his "documents" he finds a low paying job for his unskilled self that pays peanuts. His "wife" is also here illegally and has several American-born children. He can apply for welfare, food stamps, and all other social services and at tax time on behalf of those kids. "Geraldo" files as single head of household (he is not married to the woman with the kids, remember)and gets all the earned income credits and tax deductions for the American-born kids. He has established a work record, he might have tax statements, and if he saved enough of HIS income, he may buy a home. He is "single" when he needs to be, and has children when he needs them. They, illegals, have this all figured out, and the Feds do nothing to stop the plundering.

Put they on a monthly payment that's how to pay for it then it will be up to the job to save money for new ones

There are many things that need to be changed/addressed.
If Americans lose focus on what these lying Politicians are up too and if we attempt to focus on other issues that are just as important,,, this Immigration Reform package will be forced upon us with no consideration for border security.
In other words,,, one thing at a time.

I clearly said IF the ever manage to band together. Unfortunately minorities are just as likely to be bigoted against other groups. You would think they'd know better having been the victims of discrimination, but I guess it's human nature.

if not, you should. it will explain the insanity being pushed by the latinos. yeah. it sounds unreal. some would say it is racist to think this way. how can a majority of latiinos think this way?
now, and then, these sort of scenarios do happen. recall the nazis, the stalin years, the mao years, and now we have the latinos pushing this rhetoric.
and you can tell that it is happening because they pretty much all voted democrat. need I say more?
it's like what is happening with the muslims. they are pretty much all in agreement... they want their caliph muslim empire to rule again.
They are no more representative of hispanics than the black panthers are of blacks or the KKK is of whites.

No. No they can't fool. if you applied for those things with a fake SSN, they would find out. go ahead and try it if you think it is so easy. you can be like the Vegas woman who tried to vote twice, supposedly to shpow how easy it was. she was charged witha felony.

funny how people like you are willing to lie so easily.

why is that?

Most who work off the books get paid in cash...and they aren't having taxes taken out.
In the meantime, it is property taxes that pay for schools...and if you own a house, you pay the taxes, whether you have children in those schools or not, whether you can deduct dependents from your taxes or not.
We have grade schools here that have 60% to 70% hispanic children. Most are on the breakfast and lunch programs, the schools have health and dental clinics, which several times a year also let parents come in for check-ups.
All of this is paid by local property taxes, something which few illegal aliens are paying, yet our property taxes have nearly doubled since we bought our house and are about to go up again. My husband and I will not be able to afford to retire here, even when our home is paid off, largely because of the damned property tax. Most people we know who have reached retirement find they have to leave the state or live on a tight shoestring budget so they can pay anywhere from $750 to $1400 a month in property tax.
You can parse this all you like, but it is working Americans who are stuck with the bill for millions of people who are here illegally. If the government had to foot the whole cost, this problem would have been addressed a long time ago.
That's why we need to change funding of public schools from property taxes to a sales tax. That way everyone pays.

Wow, so why are you living there if it's so expensive?

I pay less than $400 per YEAR in property taxes, and I have a 10 acre property.

Sounds like you chose poorly.

You bitch about the cost of illegals and you bitch about the cost of preventing those same illegals from working.

Seems like you do a lot of bitching.

So what's YOUR magical solution which will cost taxpayers nothing?

Minorities are not a single group. They are several different groups, who are letting both our government and people like yourself encourage their difference and seperateness from everyone else. Different groups, celebrating different languages, different cultures and all nursing stereotypes of other groups, resentment and hostilities and all accusing one another of bigotry and racism.
Way to unite a country.
You act like it's something new. It's no different than the Italians hating the Poles, and the Irish hating the Germans, and the Swedes hating the English, etc. All immigrants to America have had enthic clashes with other groups. It seems to be in our nature.
