It doesn't. It's why "anchor babies" are so lucrative also, the mother doesn't have to be a citizen or legally here but can show up in the welfare office to colleect WIC, food stamps, Medicaid and all else that goes with the welfare life.

Having the baby doesn't cost the illegal mother a dime but the baby brings in more than she could have ever imagined back home.

That's what I thought.

Unless WIC imposes citizenship requirements, ANYONE IN THE WORLD CAN COLLECT FROM US.

Put a stop to this!

Stopping all welfare handouts of all kinds would certainly put a damper on illegal immigration. If the anchor babies didn't guarantee the extended clan legal status and all kinds of welfare benefits, if the illegal parents had to carry the debt of the hospital stay, have their credit destroyed, and if the illegals weren't given welfare handouts to subsidize the low wages they are paid, then many would find it too difficult to make ends meet here, certainly they couldn't afford to be having far more children and at such young ages as they currently do.

Right. That would hamper their ability to manipulate us greatly.

I propose ALL forms of welfare/handouts to require citizenship of the applicant and their families who may benefit from welfare, not just their anchor babies. If ANYONE in the family is not a citizen...denied. Also, require drug testing.

Waaaaahh, but...But what? YOU ARE ASKING THE GOVERNMENT FOR FREE MONEY. You're giving yourself up to the government. You have no right to cry there.

Really bugs me when they are actually getting something for nothing. This shouldn't be how it works.

It's one of the big problems with the food stamp and Medicaid programs.

With social security and Medicare, there is a citizenship or legal resident requirement but also the requirement that someone paid in and is above a certain age. People can't (at least yet) just show up from any where and expect to be given these programs but Medicaid, food stamps, WIC are essentially open to anyone in the world if they just come here and give birth.

No prior record of ever having worked here is even needed to qualify. Just a birth.

Just in case Malmute missed this citation. Sorry it's not as convenient as reading The Blaze or watching a Foxnews sound bite

The male/female ratio is irrelevant. What’s important is the fact that illegals have given birth to more than 4 million babies. Obviously, a sufficient number of illegal women are here.

Ha ha ha only 8 million in the "workforce".

The more I read junk from that site the more I am surprised they are nutz enough to have Hispanic in the title. Just a small hint of what's inside.

Yes, not only are there a very significant number of illegal women breeding like rabbits here, a very significant number of women are abandoned by their men who left them to come here.

Only the most avid open borders proponents can believe it's a great thing to have so many fathers living far from their wives and children, that many women are left alone to tend to their families -- and that money is more important than a father in the home helping to raise his kids.

But as I live on the border, I also know how many easily cross the borders to head straight to the hospital to give birth -- and it's like winning the lottery for them. They never did work a day in their lives here and now they never will work a day in their lives anywhere.
