No I'm saying that Americans won't work for the slave wages that the farmers pay the illegal aliens!
Why do you think the illegal alien women start spitting out those "Anchor" babies the minute they get here?
Food stamps and Section 8 Housing for starters!
Cut off their welfare, and the fat lazy Americans will take whatever jobs are available- or they can starve to death for all I care. I have no sympathy for the lazy.

Agree?
The business community wanted the cheap labor, and the business community owns the politicians.

Of course they can't be trusted this time, nor the next time, nor the next time- they're politicians. That's why we might as well make all the illegals citizens- at least they'll be paying income taxes then.

Has anyone done a impact study on the Maximum population this country can hold,because that's where we're headed.Keep in mind the limited area we can grown crops already because of the population explosion and the limited area we can live in,plus the Water shortage we already have in some areas for crop growing and human consumption. Nothing good will come from adding millions of more immigrants to our population legal or otherwise.

Illegal Aliens Receive Billions in IRS Tax Benefits

Friday, 23 Sep 2011 05:17 PM

By James Walsh

On July 7, 2011, the U.S. Department of Treasury's inspector general for tax administration issued a startling report entitled "Individuals Who Are Not Authorized to Work in the United States

Were Paid $4.2 Billion in Refundable Credits."

No wonder the nation's finances are in turmoil.

It is clear that unauthorized aliens are filing ITIN tax returns with fraudulent data.

The Treasury report found that "One common type of
fraudulent refund involves taxpayers fabricating a Wage and Tax Statement (Form W-2) that shows excess withholding and results in a tax refund."

On the verge of going bankrupt with an astounding $26.3 billion deficit, the nation's most populous state is considering saving hundreds of millions of dollars annually by cutting monthly welfare payments to illegal immigrants.

The savings doesn't even include the billions of dollars that California spends annually to educate, incarcerate and medically treat the 2.7 million illegal aliens (7% of the state's population) who live in the state that has so generously offered them sanctuary for decades. It turns out that legislators are finally realizing that illegal immigrants are draining their
precious Golden State.

That's why California officials, extremely generous with tax dollars in the past, are trying to find a way to eliminate welfare payments to tens of thousands of illegal immigrants. The move, which has caused outrage among the state's powerful open borders lobby, would save a much-needed $640 million a year.

******An example of who the state cuts the monthly checks to is an unemployed 43-year-old illegal immigrant from Mexico who gets $650 a month for each of her four children and about $500 in federal food stamps and other vouchers.******

Its still chump change compared to what the state spends-between $4 billion and $6 billion annually-on schools, jails and hospitals for illegal immigrants. That doesn't even include other local government costs such as police and fire, road maintenance and other public services.

The biggest chunk-$2.3 billion-goes to educating about 300,000 illegal immigrant children at public schools throughout the state. California expects to spend around $834 million to incarcerate nearly 20,000 illegal aliens in fiscal year 2009-2010 and well over $700 million to medically treat close to 800,000 illegal immigrants.

More than half the healthcare money will go to emergency services but a substantial portion will pay for nonemergency health services such as abortions, prenatal and postpartum care and even nursing homes.

So only half of the 20-30 million Mexicans will go on welfare, ObamaCare, foodstamps, etc. Great! We'll still go bankrupt, but slower now. Yipee!
What's wrong? Did you think that welfare, Obamacare and food stamps was a God given right to only you?

So start deporting all those whose family or ancestors immigrated- legally or illegally- after 1776.

I'd support that 100%.

Millions of citizens commit tax fraud every year too.

I'm not sure how you think keeping the illegals in an illegal status is going to stop the fraud.

Me neither, which is why I've repeatedly stated I support cutting off welfare to EVERYONE after 30 days.

Because Hispanics don't stereotype all other Hispanics as being illegal or harboring illegals like the average white person does.

That's why I call whites like you bigots.

If any Hispanic is stereotyping all Hispanics as being illegal or harboring illegals, then I'll call them a bigot as well.

Or they can hire whomever they can find who is willing to do the job for the pay offered.

Either way, I don't really care.

I was just pointing out to all those whiners out there that there are plenty of jobs available in Michigan and yet our unemployment rate is 10-20%.

This time they will not only NOT do what they promise, they will do much worse. They will just wait a bit until the Mexican vote makes the Democrats a permanent majority. At that point they'll vote to open the border entirely!

This is a program designed to end America as a country. The invasion will not stop until we are totally bankrupt. We CANNOT be the dumping ground for Latin America's tens of millions of dirt-poor peasants. Anyone who thinks otherwise is crazy.

Ooooh, it's the end of America again!

Gee, like we didn't hear that when the target was blacks or Indians or Italians or Irish or Jews or Germans etc, etc, etc.

It may be the end of white-majority-ruled America, but it by no means is an end to America.

That's right.

White-majority-ruled America may come to an end.

But that won't be the END of America; it will just be a different America.

It will be an America run like any other non-white-dominated country.

And, hopefully, it won't become a third world nation - though the white-majority-ruled America NATIONAL DEBT of $16 TRILLION +, might get us to third world status sooner than later.

Considering who badly you admit white-ruled America screwed things up: the debt, unending wars, etc- I doubt a minority ruled America could do much worse.
