It shows in the other topic you started by only pointing out the "most serious crimes" percentage vs the overall crime numbers.
Well put!! Everyday an illegal is here, he/she is committing a crime.

There's plenty of illegals of ALL nationalities who come here to work, not to abuse of our system or raise gang members. Obviously you're going to have bad apples in any group, and more so in a group as large as the Mexican one.
Your parents commited lots of crimes just to stay alive in the USA.

Greeks are spoiled.
They want to sit on a chair,answer to phone calls & earn $1500...
The Greeks who come illegally to USA nowadays,must be deported mercylessly...
There are legal ways to emigrate for those who have a Bachelor & even better,a Master degree.

Besides,Greeks can work everywhere in the EU.
They can work in England without even a passport,just their official ID.
They are not desperate
So,they are inexcusable.

the american social service network is far from the most generous. Germany pays EVERY mother and father (regardless of race, age, or how much money they have) a check EVERY month to reimburse for the care of EACH child. you have 5 kids - you get 5 checks. until the children are adults. if the child has special needs you get more money. Germany is also an economic powerhouse. on top of that they have low cost educational system, items like food stamps, health care for the indigent, old and poor, pensions etc. pretty similar to what most European countries provide

in some countries aid is provided to undocumented people. in the US illegals are prohibited from any type of welfare (food stamps, housing assistance, tanf, medicaid, medicare)

Not true... Illegal aliens can get emergency Medicaid. Especially if it involves pregnant illegal aliens who need care.

And they can collect Welfare/SNAP etc on behalf of their US born children. They do benefit from it, even if they are not the ones who are getting it directly from the government.

Does Germany provide all of that to the illegal aliens in their country? Somehow I doubt it. U.S. illegals gain all of those freebies through their anchor kids so what is the difference?
