Is the media just picking out the ones with the most kids to try to make its readers feel sorry for them or does every illegal alien couple really have this many children?

Because the illegals like to claim they're only here breaking the laws to "feed their families" which means they must have them.

Of course many illegals have 4 or 5 or more kids back in Mexico that they have abandoned but the media won't show the interviews with them. Many have families they left behind and don't support and also have new families over here - and those will be the kids we hear about.

And they can't show another problem, they can't interview the illegal whose kids are back home and miss him and he might say how he hasn't seen his wife and kids in over 5 years, because people might start seeing there's a problem there, start wondering why money means so much that people will let their kids grow up and see them only once or twice or never again.

Also - that hints at the root of the problem. Millions of these people having children they simply cannot afford. That's a cultural problem - and leads to the high rate of food stamps, WIC, and Medicaid if they have or bring their children here.

It's not that Mexico doesn't have a growing middle class - it does - but to become middle class there, one must stay in school, finish his/her education, learn some job skills, delay the start of a family until that and marriage, and limit family size to what he/she can afford. Mexico doesn't reward irresponsible behavior with abundant food stamps and WIC and the free ride we give.

They don't want little Pepe to have a bad opinion of Uncle Sam. Pepe might vote, or sign up. Who the hell cares what Pepe thinks ?? We are supposed to worship kids ? Hold them on some kind of higher level than the rest of us ?

Most of the time the kids are US citizens so they were born here. So they certainly did not come here to "feed their families". They had no children at all when they entered the US illegally.

I thought the reason was that they wanted to work but it seems to be that they are actually coming here to have kids. A lot of kids.

The latest telephone poll taken by the California Governor’s office asked whether people who live in California think illegal immigration is a serious problem:

29% responded, “Yes, it is a serious problem.”

71% responded, “No es una problema seriosa.”

Because they believe and expect stupid Americans and the US to support them.

And they can't use the Catholic Church as an excuse, large parts of Europe is Catholic and doesn't have the same high birthrate Illegals do.

The illegals I know have 6 and 8 kids but the kids are in Mexico with family. These guys live with 8 or so people in a small house. I guess they are saving up to bring the familia over.

Because even though it's ok to have sex out of wedlock or impregnate a 14 year-old, it's against their religion to use birth control.
