The linked piece is not about illegal aliens specifically and in fact are mentioned only once. This piece is on waste and poor procedures on the part of the Georgia WIC program. Pretty weak attempt at spin on your part.

Of course illegals get WIC - because of birth citizenship they do. There is no way they can come here already pregnant without a job and support their offspring without numerous government handouts. And no way can they eagerly accept the low wages which is the reason employers love them, and have more children than Americans could afford to have without much government assistance.

Keep in mind that these are people who didn't have the job skills and education to make it in a country where they know the language and culture and where the cost of living is much much lower than here.

Citation needed. This anchor baby theory is funny. Do you know we established last night that even though females outnumber males in LEGAL immigration, men far outnumber the women as far as illegal immigration goes? That kind of blows your "they only come to have dem anchor babeez" garbage out of the water since I'd imagine most would have to be, you know, child bearing women.

Citation needed. Why would anyone believe male illegals far outnumber the women? There is no reason to believe they would or do.

All it takes is a shopping pass for a young unwed mother to get to the USA to give birth.

Illegals have a far higher birth rate than do Americans or legal immigrants and it's not by the males having some kind of amoeba type reproduction.

Now, if this was some huge ploy, wouldn't there be more women than men or at the very least more women than men compared to the ratios of legal immigrants? You insinuated as much with your reply but that's not the case. There are more legal women immigrating than men. Why are there more legal women immigrants than men? Explain how these relate to your theory.

Who came up with that graph? Certainly not the government which claims it can't possibly deport the illegals because it could never manage to find any of them.

The government doesn't know where the illegals are in order to enforce any of our immigration laws, it can't know how many are girls and how many are boys.

The hispanic birth rates which are extremely high are not a result of legal long-term American hispanics suddenly taking large amounts of fertility drugs or deciding they could afford many more children than other Americans. The extreme hispanic birth rate has all to do with illegals coming over to give birth here.

I'm assuming you have valid information to provide other than "durrrr that doesn't fit my viewpoint"?
