We are the biggest fools on earth, and our enemies are patiently awaiting our demise. At our current rate of implosion, it won’t take long. And, to think, it was all done from within, without a single shot being fired from an enemy military. Illegals are our Trojan Horse and Achilles’ Heel all rolled into one. Meanwhile, all who oppose are vilified.
...and yet people wonder why I don't have children. What kind of world would I bring them into? Not worth it IMHO.

In fact the programs I have seen are "low cost" school meals, rather than free, or "no cost"...

You may want to edit your post to better account for what you are really trying to say...
You may, once again, wish to take a reading comprehension course (in English). The reference was to "illegal" aliens, not those with a legal resident status.

Low cost meals are not completely paided for by anyone but the government. And are free to the student or have the balance of the cost paid for by the government (supported by tax payers). Additionally, the comment was again in regard to illegals, not "lower income" legal residents.

Just another of your attempts to hijack a thread.

Same with food--the illegals can't have food stamps, why do we givethem food at school? Same program...

I was sick of having a classroom full of illegal children, with aids that spoke Spanish...to the students. English was barely acknowledged. I needed interpreters for every phone call and meeting with parents--who never bothered to learn English.

And yet--an African-American girl was placed in another school, because her mother enrolled her at this school--for the excellent care and services--and the school district treated her like a criminal--because she lived in a different area.
The school nurse gives out the same medical services as Medicaid???

IF you are an educator, you should know illegal aliens are allowed food stamps[actually you should the're are no longer called... "food Stamps"...anymore(EBT Cards)]

"Food Stamps" have noting to do with K-12 education. If your going to compare the mother [African -American you so liked to point out] who sent her children to a district her children were not eligble to attend...with illegal aliens...at least keep the comparison about the same subject.

I might be mistaken but I thought when someone emigrated to the US they were to be denied ant benefits for about 5 years or so. Am I wrong? I thought their sponsor had to prove they could cover their financial burden.

Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Not being from Alabama the one that really sticks out to me is The United Way. And they give over $50,000. I used to give to them...not anymore. It really pays to check out the charities you give to.

Thanks for the link!

My husband and daughter-in-law are LEGAL immigrants here from the UK, and you are correct. They are denied any benefits until they become naturalized citizens or have been here for a minimum of 5 years. However, even if they have met the 5 year requirement, the government still can (and probably will) go after the sponsors to foot the bill.

My family have been here since 1609, even longer when you take into account my Lenni Lenape, Mohawk and Montauk ancestors, we are struggling because I am out of work, yet I cannot apply for government assistance and request help through funds my people have been paying into the system for over 400 years. But cross the border illegally and in less than 24 hours you can have all the help you need with food, housing, education and medical.

When I was working full time I also authorized deductions from my paycheck to the United Way until I found out that illegal aliens are part of the recipients of those funds. After that instead I designated certain charities that my donations would go to and I investigated them first.

Why stop there. Since almost every Fourtune 500 company advertises on American Spanish language TV, and only illegals watch Spanish language TV...you need to also Boycott

ATT
Coke
Ford
Sears
Kmart
Verizon
Chevy
Pizza Hut
McDonald's
Sprint
Allstate
Budwieser
Disneyland/world
Dell
Apple
Folgers
Kraft
Kingsford
Lowes
Burgerking

Not really "any" benefits, so actually things like low-cost lunch programs can be used if financially qualified (my income is too high for my kids to be in the program). The families of Active Duty servicemembers don't have the 5 year wait either. A sponsor pens out a legally binding contract for how they will support whom they are sponsoring.

ATT - I have Verizon
Coke - I don't drink any type of soda
Ford - haven't owned a Ford product for decades
Sears - don't shop there
Kmart - don't shop there
Verizon -oops!
Chevy - same as Ford
Pizza Hut - blech, never go there
McDonald's - same as above
Sprint - I have Verizon
Allstate - oops!
Budwieser - don't drink beer
Disneyland/world - never been and don't plan to go
Dell - well, at work..no choice there
Apple - Nope
Folgers - don't drink coffee
Kraft - Cheese?
Kingsford - charcoal? don't use
Lowes - oops!
Burgerking - same as micky dees
Subway - don't go there
Walmart - ESPECIALLY don't go there
Covergirl - haven't worn makeup in decades
Old Navy - don't shop there
and more...
so from this list I have three OOPS and really don't want to change. Lowes vs. Home Depot that uses illegal labor and allows them to hang out around the outside of the store to offer their 'help'. Lowes does not allow that.

Allstate I've had for almost 30 years; I'd hate to change now.

Verizon - meh, they are probably all the same!

We can only do what we can.
