I drive a car, so the answer is obvious. However, I am not in this country illegally. Or, have you forgotten we are discussing illegal aliens?

Apparently you DONíT know the difference, or you refuse to acknowledge the difference. Regardless, we are NOT discussing U.S. citizens. We are discussing illegal aliens. Stop playing games.

But then I'm talking to someone who sees no problem with someone not understanding the charges being brought against them, so whatever.
It is your prerogative to disagree with me. But, considering your support for the non-assimilating illegals, that is to be expected.

Then the answer to "do renters pay property tax" should be obvious.

On the rare occasion for a U.S. citizen not to understand English, fine. But, we should not accommodate illegal aliens. If they need a document translated, or need an interpreter to speak on their behalf, they should pay, not taxpayers.

It would be great if this were just a scam to sell t-shirts. Get some of our money back from them.

You cannot drive a car without purchasing gas. But, you CAN be a squatter, which many illegals are, and pay nothing.

Unfortunately, the proceeds will fund their illegal movement.

So your problem is specifically with homeless people who have children in school? And you wouldn't care if they were legal homeless immigrants with children in school?

I refuse to engage in further discussions of this nonsense. If you have no comments on the actual topic of this thread, move along.

That is essentially dead on with the current topic. You're claiming that many illegal immigrants are squatters. You provided no data, but regardless this is an issue that would apply to any homeless person who has a child in school.
