The President is aiding and abetting Illegal Aliens. He is shredding our Constitution bit by bit with his liberal ways.

Obama decided he would do this without anyone's consent? Clearly he knows the American people are against this, yet he forges head first. Who does this terrorist think he is?

The president of the United States is a criminal, patriots!

Strange. I have never heard somebody who works for Social Services describe themselves as a "welfare worker". In deed most would take offense.
Why do I doubt you? Feel free to share your inside information with us.
I describe myself as a welfare worker to make it clear exactly what I am. No need for government titles that may confuse people. Believe me if someone is offended then that's their problem, I am identifying myself not them.

I asked you where you got your information. Is it from a website? As I would like to read the regulations from the site. I am unaware of any such regulation that you cited.

A lot of states have different regulations. Im in California. Therefore please tell me where you got your information.

Post the link, site or explain please. Thanks.

Good point, my daughter is Social Worker in Central California and she gets really bent out of shape when someone says she is a "Welfare worker".
I am not a social worker. I am a welfare worker. I determine eligibility for Cash aid, Food Stamps and Medi-cal. If your daughter is a social worker then she has a different position, then I do.

I am not embarrassed or ashamed of my job. So why would I try to make it something it isn't?

I would be careful about calling people ignorant.
Clinton's Welfare Reform ACT of 1995 specifically barred undocumented people from receiving any type of public benefit. The only alarming thing is that you did not know this.
So illegal immigrants are not receiving cash aid, food stamps for their citizen born children?

So who is the payee for these aided children? The children cannot be the payee. Who is the EBT card issued to? The cash and food stamps are issued on the EBT Card to the illegal immigrant parent/payee.

Illegals are eligible to no cost Medicaid for emergency medical services. Also free prenatal, delivery and post natal care.

Illegal immigrants are also eligible to WIC.

Section 8 also considers illegal immigrants eligible for low income/subsidized housing if they have at least one citizen child.

Ok, I can accept that. I'm not sure exactly what my daughter does out there. I do know that she meets with clients on a daily basis, so I just figured it was all the same. I do apologize for questioning you.

Where I live (New Mexico) most Social Workers with the Health and Human Services Department also do the food stamps and Medicaid stuff which is why I was wondering about your definition.

Social Workers in our department work with CPS (Children's Protective Services) and APS (Adult Protective Services) to determine if there is abuse, or if a child/ or adult needs to be removed from their living situation. I am not a Social Worker. I do not have a degree in social work.

I determine eligibility for welfare. The names for welfare/AFDC/TANF have changed. However people know what welfare is that is why I identify myself as a welfare worker. Just to avoid confusion.

Where he's taking this country is not where we veterans were envisioning it going when we joined. This was and is not where America needs to tread. For those like myself who served 40+ years ago it is really disgusting.

Cold hard facts? You gave some made-up numbers with vague references to an unnamed study. I did check the numbers you included, but of course they do not match anything from the real world.

By the way, I suspect you do not have any formal training in statistical analysis but you should still be able see the fallacies in your post. The topic was about undocumented people, but you just lumped all brown skinned people together without differentiating between US born brown people, naturalized citizens, legal residents and undocumented people.

Not to worry though. Your numbers may be silly, but your point of view is quite clear.

You should cut your losses. Your post confirms that you are either really incompetent at your job or you are a fraud.

You do realize that before somebody can apply for Section 8 housing both the applicant and co-head of household (spouse or domestic partner), if any, must be at least 18 years of age? Children can not apply and neither can their parents. Maybe you should check this with a "co-worker".

There is no point in debunking the rest of your nonsense if you can not even get the easy stuff right.

Did you read my post regarding Section 8 Housing?

"Section 8 also considers illegal immigrants eligible for low income/subsidized housing if they have at least one citizen child."

If there is a family of illegals, yet they have one citizen child. They are considered a "mixed household" that meets the citizenship requirement for Section 8 Housing.

The child does not apply, the parent(s)or head of household does.

Here is a link for the regulations http://www.access.gpo.gov/nara/cfr/waisidx_00...

Any further clarification needed? Just let me know. Thanks!

To let this go undermines our country. Its the law, and he needs to enforce the law, King said.
King has gotten to the crux f thr problem. This man needs to be stopped, at all costs. This link is enlightening.

If you put stock in the idiotic link you posted, no wonder you're the ignorant bigot that you are. The person who outed you too is right about your being NJ, and that's why you went into your tirade about being analyzed.

You're uninformed beyond belief or you would realize that the mother of an anchor baby can and does apply for Section 8 housing as soon as the baby is born. Mama also applies for HEAP, LIRA, WIC, food stamps and cash aid for the newborn anchor. In fact I know of many instances where the pregnant ILLEGAL ALIEN gets food stamps and WIC just because she is pregnant.

In addition the father resides in the housing unit reaping the benefits of section 8 and energy assistance aid. Meanwhile he is working under the table and his income goes unreported.

Also ILLEGAL ALIENS can and do use stolen ID's to apply for welfare benefits. We're all aware that the law says ILLEGAL ALIENS can't receive welfare but we also know the law says they aren't even supposed to be in this country.

You put a whole lot of faith in millions of people who defy our laws by sneaking into this country or overstaying their visas. What would make you think they all of a sudden become law abiding and never break another law?

Yes, we can deport 12 million before it is 30 million.
Your right Annie but we are giving that number to much credit let's say 20-40 million before it get's to 40-60 million surely with them low umbers they want us to believe 12 million are here illegaly we would hardly notice it's the large families they breed to add with those astounding numbers already.
