Damn, you're really mad. I knew that she was an immigrant (doesn't take rocket science when you are from where I am) and I asked her if WIC was available in Mexico. The point was that the other person mentioned why they don't ask for help from their country and I stated that from a person from Mexico's own mouth, that they can't get help like they do here. Which of course is pretty pathetic and only proves that they can't depend on their own countries for help, yet, get to come here LEGALLY or ILLEGALLY and receive help (at the GREAT expense of others) somehow.

If you can't take the heat ... get out of the kitchen IBMM.

Why keep quoting me with silly replies?
Yes -- what's really pathetic is that our legal immigration laws are so lax that it's very possible these food stamp queens are legal immigrants, not all the welfare types are here illegally.

As much as SOME here will try to claim it's very difficult to come here legally which is why so many millions are breaking the laws, the laws are actually very lenient especially when it comes to family sponsors who bring in the most uneducated, unskilled and the financial responsibility for their immigrant amounts to a joke in many many cases.

What's humerous about foreingers especially those here illegally getting all kinds of government assistance that comes out of the taxpayer's coffers?

The government should start by seizing any monies sent by criminal immigrants to another country. That would go a ways towards paying for the costs associated with illegal immigration, as well as eliminate a powerful incentive for this criminal act.

I don't hate anchor babies; who, for the record, are not classified as "immigrant" children. What I do hate is the inherent lawlessness of illegal immigration, and the unnecessary burden placed on taxpayers.

Tell me, would you support offering the children of thieves a tax-funded $50,000 money market account, payable to the thieves "on behalf of" their children? I certainly wouldn't. Nor do I support offering tax-funded benefits to the children of illegal aliens.

Okay, now that you've been enlightened on the recipients of the "DREAM Act," do you believe U.S. taxpayers should be forced to subsidize their education? If so, please explain.

In addition, given the high dropout rate of children of illegal aliens, both U.S. and foreign-born, do you actually believe illegal aliens are a positive addition to this nation?

What they do have is a program like food stamps that is a stipend. But, if you don't work that wouldn't be an option like it is here.

I saw one in Squal*Mart the other day...four other kids all under six and she was pregnant with another one. Legal or Illagal it was still annoying to see someone having that many kids (and most likely on food stamps) when our population is topping 7 billion.

It was all I could do not to go grab a packet of condoms and toss them in her cart.

I assume you mean the world's population is around 7 billion? Not even sure of that number but the U.S. population is 310 million plus right now. It is irritating to see pregnant women like that whether they be a citizen, legal immigrant or illegal alien. It is even more irritating however if they are here in our country illegally and breeding like no tomorrow and living on the government dole.

It was a safe assumption.
