According to the U.S. Census, the government estimates we now have eleven million illegal aliens in the United States. Of these, 6,640,000 are from Mexico alone. The true number may be much higher because many did not report in the census. The average amount each state spends to provide welfare, medical, food stamps and education alone is between eleven to twenty two billion dollars a year. This does not include the amount paid from the Social Security and Medicare fund to immigrants who have never worked a day in the U.S.!
We cannot sustain this bleeding off of our assets. Instead of helping a neighboring country to thrive, we are destroying the fiber of our country. On the news, a report showed bus loads of Mexican illegal aliens being dropped off every day in a city in Colorado on one of the main streets. Immigration must not have been tuned in that day because it still happens.
A meat packing plant has been raided several times and the illegal aliens are rounded up. The plant gets their hands slapped for a few days, but when the plant opens it is still staffed by illegal employees. There are many who can’t speak a word of English, yet police can not ask for an I.D. because that is profiling. Wonder how Homeland Security handles this? One person will get a job that offers medical insurance and allow his buddies to use it at the emergency room. If they are asked for I.D., they say they forgot it and they’ll bring it back. Never happens.
Or they simply go to the E.R. where they can’t be refused basic care, give phony information and we get higher insurance rates and medical costs to make up for it. Several of the legal immigrants send for their families. If they are of retirement age, they may get Social Security and Medicare (not one day of employment). And Habitat for Humanity evens builds new houses for illegal immigrants.
One bragged that last year he got back $12,000 on income taxes because he claimed his kids and a couple of his buddies let him claim theirs because they weren’t working. The kids had three different last names, but he got the money. Child tax credit—Yea! Have you heard that, even though they buy stolen social security cards (ever have your identity stolen—rack up the time and money) they do pay taxes. If I get my housing, utilities, gas vouchers, food and education free, I’d gladly pay half my wages in taxes.
The really sad part is, many Americans know its wrong and gripe about the government, but many don’t vote. Many more never write to their representatives (don’t even know who they are). We have a right to hire and fire, but don’t you think just griping about it over coffee is working fine for us?
This is not to say we should only do for U.S. Citizens, but Washington, please hold off on all this illegal immigration charity until this country can feed their own without selling our country to China. At that time, we are still willing to share! And by the way, Mr. Politician, where will your descendants live?
