Who believes this? With the US government providing more giveaways then ever you telling me Mexicans are coming for the hand outs? More are coming then ever.

If they are not coming why is the cost of illegal alien welfare costs going up.

"California is America’s Sanctuary State – and Mexico’s outsourced welfare state.

The Los Angeles County Department of Public Social Services reported that more than $100 million in welfare benefits were issued to illegal alien parents for their native-born children in June and July alone, announced Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich.

The $100 million consists of nearly $40 million in CalWORKs (welfare) and $70 million in food stamps — representing 22% of all CalWORKs and food stamp issuances in the County. At this rate, the projected annual cost is more than $625 million.

“With the $550 million for public safety and nearly $500 million for healthcare, the total cost for illegal immigrants to County taxpayers exceeds $1.6 billion dollars a year,” said Antonovich.“These costs do not include the hundreds of millions of dollars for education.”

Illegals have no plans to pay taxes, they have an out...it's called being paid under the table, then they have get these greatt perks just for dropping a bunch of American-born kids in the taxpayers' laps. It's no skin off their backs, just more being taken out of the taxpayers' pockets.

Now that Obama has been elected, many American citizens are putting plans together to pay no more taxes. In my state, Putting ones land into a trust negates any further reassessment. Many that I know are bartering and working under the table and purposely staying below the poverty level for income and purposely becoming eligible for entitlements, and as far as I see, is legal. I just may do the same and by doing so I just might hasten the reform of these entitlement laws. An interesting thought huh?

I can understand the people's angst. By the time some of these "pooer" folks add all their "perks" to their minimal salaries, it becomes quite apparent that the dems are making living on the dole more palatable to many than to work a job that may pay more, but will disqualify them for those freebies. I understand how the folks thinking about avoiding taxes feel, but I don't think those actions will make a difference in the minds of those politicians. They will roll right over the folks and plant a new crop of deadbeats. When there is nothing left to dole out, they will flee the country and live in luxury off the backs of those they trampled upon.

Why would people fear tax breaks so much that they would choose to live in poverty instead of paying lower taxes?

How would these people react if Reagan was president and the top tax rates were 50% again? Would they start living underground like mole people?

Tax rates are lower for everybody since Obama took office. That's just a fact.

History has indeed shown that to be true.

Rico, come on now. You know full well that illegals can apply for them on behalf of their American-born kids. You also know that anything they buy with those foodstamps will end up in their stomachs as well.

This insane notion that Obama is scouring the world looking for people willing to take food stamps is too stupid for words. We are definitely dealing with the lunatic fringe here.

Why do you change the subject every time somebody calls you out? Rico was questioning your ridiculous post about "Obama pushing food stamps" in Mexico. He was giving you an opportunity to back up your claim and all you could do was pivot. Do you ever tell the truth about anything?

Thanks for confirming that an illegal alien cannot collect for themselves. It takes a US Citizen to collect welfare.

An illegal alien is not a US Citizen.
