This amounts to millions of able-bodied people who are here illegally.

Millions of uneducated and unskilled cannot come to a country with a much higher cost of living than their own country and accept the lowest paying jobs when there are few jobs available and have the largest number of children than any other group without the welfare.

These people couldn't make it in a country where they speak the language and know the culture. Who would really believe they are making it here where they can never learn the language?

The reality is that the many children they have bring in food stamps, WIC, free housing and cost them nothing at all for health care and schooling, giving birth is like winning the lottery.

They didn't ask me if I am here legally, if I am even pregnant (I am not kidding. I didn't even have to show proof of pregnancy) or if I have kids.

I applied in Lowell, MA. Another city overrun with illegals. The ladies who helped me could barely speak English and I was the only English speaking person in the waiting room. Everyone else required an interpreter. Cambodian and Spanish.

"We watch them pull up in a Mercedes, Coach purses, iPhones and diamond rings," said Baker." I saw a brand new BMW in the parking lot...and this family of 3 who was in the waiting room drove off in it...and they didn't speak English. They needed an interpreter.


Awesome, isn't it?

Now come on, they can't get WIC, the pro-criminal side said so.

To illegals, children are nothing but walking sales products that they must keep in stock
in order for their income to continue.

I've about heard this before from someone that was at the welfare office.

Are you all not aware of the requirement of WIC in all states...?

Who gets WIC?
WIC is available to women who are pregnant or breastfeeding or have given birth within
the past two months, and children up to their 5th birthday. To be eligible for WIC, they
must meet the following requirements:
Be a resident of Georgia or a migrant farm worker currently living in Georgia.

Thats it...
[LEFT]
Dont like the benefit requirement...change the law.

I was going to post this. I live in the Metro Atlanta area and received WIC 8 years ago. It was interesting to me that usually when I had to go to the office, there were only, maybe 3 other families who spoke English. It was ridiculous. I had lost my job and they gave me crap about applying. I also was breastfeeding and didn't even need the formula for my baby but they still gave me problems when I wasn't going to cost them nearly as much as all the illegal aliens. When I brought this up to them, they shut their mouths.

I cant speak to your treatment, but how does that or anything else you posted have to do with who is eleigible in Georgia for WIC benefits.

Since WIC is a federally funded program and if you feel that it is poorly run in Georgia, I guess the people of Georgia can vote to do away with the program and no Georgian women, infant, or child will qualify.

WIC is meant to help American children, not the offspring of foreign nationals afford to stay some place they don't belong. One has nothing to do with the other. It is disgusting that you would even suggest that we can't help our own citizens unless we agree to help criminals at the same time.

The people in Georgia and the people of the United States have repeatedly voted for immigration laws that state that if you want to come here you'd better do so legally with permission and you'd better damned well not go on welfare.

If you really wanted to do what the people in Georgia (and the American public) we'd enforce existing laws against illegal aliens. Very few Americans want them here. They very often don't speak English. They pay very in taxes. They are a drain on the public till.

The problem isn't our laws. The problem is pandering politicians, an idiotic arrogant ethnic lobby that puts the needs of their raza above the needs of the American public and some greedy employers who would rather import slaves than pay a decent wage to locals.
