If you reward citizenship to the 12 million illegal immigrants , they will bring 20 million of their relatives to the U.S. The U.S. will give around 32 million people in federal benefits. E-verify! E-verify
Every person in this country illegally should be deported back to their country of origin where they can begin the process of coming here legally. No rewards for law breakers. IMHO

I'm just curious once they tap our resources dry there will be no place for them to go. Then they'll start turning on each other. Like people said legal immigrants okay but illegals not okay. Then who will they blame as the racists because that always seems to be their only line of defense.

I would be prosecuted if I broke the law. What these people are doing is straight up illegal and they should be prosecuted not helped. They ruined it for themselves when they decided to break the law. Criminals rights should be stripped from them. Instead they play the victims. Why even have laws if there's BS exceptions for certain people.

Not my Family. But it is true that to destroy a culture, welfare is the best, next to genocides. The treaties are not about welfare you toad headed idiot, but about survival. I know you woulod like ALL our lands and resources for free, but tough shitake Custer.

Now, illegals from the SOuthern COntinent are the true welfare society, no matter how much you would like to make it other.

LOL YOU have native American Ancestors but would claim NA's cannot rule. What a traitor you are. Your so called made up ancestors of NA descent would be so ashamed of your conditioning. Did you even realize the Iroquois were held hostage to help write the constitution they were denied the rights of? Prove your NA history. Prove me wrong, Liar.

If you're aware that the best way to destroy a culture is to give it welfare... then why are so supportive of the White man giving your Indian ilk so much welfare?

You don't even know what welfare is. Welfare is US paying you to Spawn, and us caring for the spawn. As you can't. You are simply too wasted and worthless. You should be cut like the dog you are. You are simply a stupid LaRaza Freak. If Israel can get their country back after 2000 years, what makes the NA claim any less valid? After only 100-150 years. Whereas you, as a Freak of Mexihell, has No Claim here. Just your racism and ignorance. Your leeching and Lies. Crawl back in your hole dog doo. Currently ones like you and the Govt, owe us over 170 BIllion just for sucking up our resources. This doesn't include all the other rip offs of agreements and treaties. What is your excuse for this, you parasite? No one crawls as low as you Rico. Wear it well.
