Its so funny that you made this statement! Because illegals cant get Food Stamps, medical assistance, housing assistance... in order to get these... u need to submit ur birth cert and SS card with a valid ID... Many come here to have a better life for themselves and their children... LIKE UR ANCESTORs did for ur family!!!! how do u think many of us got here!!! not all of us are Native American. So before u open ur mouth, research it!!!
And just to start that research.... find out how many ITINs are circulating in the US, ITINs are used for those who do not have Social Security Numbers to used to pay taxes!!!! throught employment.... and they pay like u and me... and donot get all back. And if US deported them all, what effect would that have on the current SocialSecurity and disablilty, and MEDICare???? it would end the day we deport!!!!

Nativism has nothing to do with immigration, but so long as you brought it up, let's discuss it.
First, practically none of immigrants (illegal or legal) are Native to North America. There are North American native tribes, but they already live here. Even fewer are native to specific states like California or Georgia.
Most illegal immigrants to the US are "Hispanic" (ie: of Spainish descent). Their ancestors came here on a boat from Spain just like white Anglos came here from other European countries like Germany or Ireland. The Anglo colonists were actually much more friendly with the Native Americans than the warlike and gold crazy Spanish, who only came here to conquer and enslave. What's happending to the Hispanics today is bad Karma for what they did in the past.
I don't know where most people today get their Walt Disney version of history; perhaps from Disney Channel.
So why do a lot if Latinos speak an Indian dialect before learn Spanish and have dark skin not cuz they are Indians naw

They are not supposed to get benefits and yet those without benefits "borrow" other peoples GREEN CARDS to get Medical Care.

It is not until someone has surgery to remove their appendix and then the person who borrows the card also needs to have it removed.

<two appendix on one person? how can that be?>

Or an employer goes to visit an employee in the hospital, but can't find him, because he uses another persons card <and is registered in his legal cousins name>.

Happens very often. Especially medical fraud.

They aren't supposed to --- and yet they do anyway.

Someone must pay for this.

Today if they go to emergency room with no way to pay, the hospital will absorb the cost.

But if they become citizens, BY LAW, they will have to PURCHASE HEALTH INSURANCE (Obamacare) which means they will have to pay for their coverage EVERY MONTH.

Why become a citizen when it means paying taxes and buying health insurance?

Pitiful California citizens already had to pay over $6 Billion last year for emergency room care for the invaders. It was one of the State Democratic Partys most expensive incentives given to attract illegals to colonize the increasingly tarnished Golden State.

My husband has a green card he is going to apply for citizenship this year he was told no benefits like unemployment food stamps or welfare or ss until he becomes citizen but the government sure does tax his paycheck so getting somebody else's green card won't help some one you have to get insurance and if your illegal and working in factory or fast food chain you can still get insurance

"They want to be treated with respect they want to be able to come out of the shadows and they want a program where they feel that when they are crossing the border they're not going to be detained at the border,"

They will NEVER be treated with respect as long as they are here illegaly and do nothing to become legal except to demand that they deserve "get out of jail free" shamnesty!!

wah wah wah they wanna feel they are not going to be detained at the border. Oh poor babies,you want me to hold that door open at the border and say "come on in,make yourself at home!"

I've told this forum a hundred times, they do not want American Citizenship. My family employs hundreds including Green Card carrier's. They do not want to become American. They do not want to give up Mexico, Hondorus, Or Asia to become Americans. They have used the system and Stolen too much from Naive American Cities, that's why they're here. They want freebies and EBT, subsidized housing, Free rent in Nevada, etc. etc. etc. They do not want to learn English except what is necessary to work here. Got it. All the people I work with and know who employ them know the truth. Americanization, Hell no..... Just use us, and go home if they need a vacation.

Yes, they're armed!

In Los Angeles, Ca they had a gun buy back program and somebody actually turned in an RPG.

2 rocket launchers turned in during Los Angeles gun buyback

LOS ANGELES (KCAL/CNN)- A one-day gun buyback event in Los Angeles ended up bringing more than 2,000 firearms off the street.

The annual event is typically held Mother's Day, but was moved up to this week in response to the massacre at the elementary school in Connecticut.

A rocket launcher. Not just one, but two, handed over to police in this week's gun buyback day.

Shocking? Not to police, who've seen it before, among the roughly 10,000 guns turned in to police by the citizens of Los Angeles since 2009.

Somewhere in my site are links to the immigration laws of the US!
yes,it is hard to jump through all the hoops but it is still the correct way to do it.

That is no reason to ignore the laws come on in to the US expect me to respect you? LOL then you have the gall to say
"Hey,respect me,I'm a lawbreaker and I demand your respect and I demand freebies and I demand shamnesty!"

For your information,because you obviously (sp)are lacking on reader comprehensive skills....that petiom is there and been running for awhile now.

So......I repeat!
