How far would you get if you went to their country < Mexico> & do the same thing they did here?Would they pay for our having babbies & send us a check every month on them? Would they give us job's they need,foodstamp's,low income housing,free school lunches, free schooling,free mecial etc.? I don't think so. America was not built nor entented for people to lay on their behinds & let some poor working slove work while you lay up in bed & make babbies you can't afford.

Hispaniics need to be given some credit... they work hard, dont get tax returns, cant get state aide or collect unemployment.... they PAY taxes and all that money they never see and it goes towards the lazy ass americans who dont wana work and want to collect umemployment and state help and get something for nothing. If they have no record and dont cause problems and are here to work and make a living, they should be granted citizenship. dont get me worng, i am american but im married to a very hard working mexican.

Illegal aliens have no right to work here and it's against the law. They do get tax returns by filing with ITINs and 2010 they filed for 4.2 billion dollars in child tax credits. They do get state welfare and unemployment because many are committing identity theft with false social security cards, driver licenses and green cards

They have a record just by being here. Married to a illegal alien. You can expect him not to come home one night when he's picked up by ICE for driving without a license.

"The Treasury Department reports that illegal immigrants filing tax returns using the Individual Tax Identifica­tion Number are receiving more than $1.5 billion each year from the federal government through the Child Tax Credit and the Additional Child Tax Credit. Many illegal immigrants are regularly accessing welfare benefits in the United States in different ways.1 They may do so through those state and local government­s that do not verify citizenshi­p or that accept false proof of citizenshi­p. In many cases, they access welfare benefits through their citizen children born in the United States. Additional­ly, and this is the focus of this report, there are ways illegal immigrants can obtain a form of federal welfare that is available to income tax filers. Since a significan­t percentage of illegal immigrants have low incomes, work “off the books,” or work with false names and Social Security numbers, it is likely that many report little or no income when applying for federal, state, or local benefits."

Mexicans are lazy if they were not they wouldn't be sneaking out of their country and wanting to live here with "lazy Americans".

When are lazy Mexicans going to get up off their wide butts and do something good for their country, get to work and improve living and working conditions in Mexico? We all know that's not going to happen.

"they PAY taxes and all that money they never see and it goes towards the lazy ass americans who dont wana work and want to collect umemployment and state help and get something for nothing."

Boy, is your head in the sand.

Majority of all immigrant families receiving welfare.

"The US Census has confirmed what the CofCC has been telling you for the past twenty years. More immigrants, both legal and illegal, come to the United States to collect welfare than to get “better jobs.”

In Arizona, a staggering 62% of all immigrant families receive assistance from at least one of the following; SSI, TANF, WIC, Public Housing, Food Stamps, Free Lunch, and Medicaid. A large percentage of these families have never paid anything in taxes to support these programs.

In California, New York, and Texas the rate is 61%.

By immigrant family, we mean all families with an immigrant head of household. So this even includes immigrants who married an American citizen!

Illegal alien families primarily receive food stamps and Medicaid by popping out “anchor babies.” Legal immigrants families often are receiving those benefits plus many more.

In California, New York, and Texas it is 61%.

Among immigrant families from the Dominican Republic an astronomical 80% are on welfare. Among those from Mexico and Guatemala, 75% are on welfare. Among those from Ecuador, 70% are on welfare.

It is absolutely false to say immigrants are coming here to work. It may be true for a majority of immigrants from certain Asian countries, but it is absolutely false for immigrants from Latin America and the Caribbean.

They are not coming here to work. They are coming here to abuse the United States and collect welfare. A recent poll from the BBC shows that America is HATED in Mexico. Only 13% of all Mexicans said they like the United States. They do not want to embrace our form of government or way of life. They want welfare, plain and simple!"

Please I filed my taxes this week and the whole office was full of them filing taxes, so who are you kidding and yes we give mexicans credit for working the system and over populating everything they touch! If they work this hard here why can't they work that hard to make mexico right they have the will but no guts, frankly I think it is the other way around we should revke all anchor babies citizenship and deny all anchor social services...FYI I have not seen to many independent foreigners here, many soley depend on our social services to make it and that's good your married to a hard working mexican legal or illegal, good for you!

Deep roots means having a family with educated kids, most of your family resides in the states, and you speak English. I agree

Immigrants and not only Mexicans, immigrants come from many different countries with no visas in the states. They need a social number to qualify for government issued help like food stamps, wic, public housin, and jobs. So when you make that statement you are completely wrong. If their child is born in the states that means they are citizens and have access to these benefits. This country was made by immigrants we all came and took the land of native Americans.

Illegal aliens not only Mexicans do come from every country. Mexico has the most (62%) and another 24% from Latino America, 6% from Canada and Europe and 8% from the rest of the world.

Illegal aliens from Mexico, 62% vs. 38% from the rest of the world (6.5 billion people).

"They need a social number to qualify for government issued help like food stamps, wic, public housin, and jobs."

"An illegal immigrant cannot qualify for a legitimate Social Security number to use to file income tax returns or for any other purpose. However, the IRS allows illegal immigrants to apply for a nine-digit Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) to be used to file federal income tax returns, and all but a small minority of returns filed with ITINs are filed by illegal immigrants."

http://www.cis.org/child-tax-credits-2011

"The Treasury Department reports that illegal immigrants filing tax returns using the Individual Tax Identifica­tion Number are receiving more than $1.5 billion each year from the federal government through the Child Tax Credit and the Additional Child Tax Credit. Many illegal immigrants are regularly accessing welfare benefits in the United States in different ways.1 They may do so through those state and local government­s that do not verify citizenshi­p or that accept false proof of citizenshi­p.

http://www­.cis.org/c­hild-tax -c­redits

Update, illegal aliens file for child tax credits worth 4.2 billion dollars in 2010, a record.

"This Memorandum is a follow-up to the November, 2010, Memorandum “Child Tax Credits for Illegal Immigrants.”1 It highlights new information contained in a report of the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) dated July 7, 2011, entitled “Individuals Who Are Not Authorized to Work in the United States Were Paid $4.2 Billion in Refundable Credits.”2 The $4.2 billion is entirely the product of the Additional Child Tax Credit (ACTC) for the 2010 tax processing year."

Deep roots mean nothing. If you were in any other country they would laugh in your face. I don't have passport and visa but i have deep roots.
