The pregnant women who cross the border illegally are not here looking for a job. Your statement 'The only reason they came to the U.S was to work' is simply not true.
They come here to not work? And their husbands come to not work? I suppose they just laze about on welfare.

No, a pregnant woman who illegally crosses the border is not looking for a job. A job is not what motivates her to enter the US inviolation of our laws. Having an anchor baby on US soil and the many benefits that accrues is her goal.
It is highly unlikey that some 9 months pregnant woman comes to the US because she heard about a really great job at Kinko's and, oh by the way, she will just coincidentally go to a US hospital to give birth.

Many of their husbands do work though, as well as the wives.

Andreabeth Point taken, and afterwards they will starve to death because they are not "looking for a job" they will just sit on the corner and die?

You do understand that illegals cannot get welfare don't you?

With all of these jobs, they should pay for the cost of delivery of their baby, right? The US taxpayer should not be left to foot the bill.

Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution is at fault.

Hence the conundrum that is America.

Once there is an anchor in the family, they are eligible for WIC, section 8 housing assistance and other benefits.
The simple fact of the matter is that they should not be here in the first place to look for jobs, sit on corners and die (if they so choose) and have babies in US hospitals.

The Fourteenth Amendment has nothing to do with whether or not they pay their hospital bills.

Well it gives them birthright and therefore the baby can obtain medicare and welfare right? Why would they pay for it out of pocket when they can for free? Would you pay for it if it can be obtained for free as a legal right?

You anti's crack me up. Funny about that anchor thing. I know a heck of a lot of illegals, and they work. They did not come here for welfare, they came here to work. Mom and Dad, often two jobs each.
The illegals ya'll whine about are working for the American Dream. The only reason they are illegal is the 200 year old advent of the Nation State.

If they are in the Southwest, I got no problem. America conquered the Southwest in an illegal war of aggression (Polk's idea was to add more slave states to counter balance the North). If the Mexicans come here, they are coming to land that was once part and parcel of Los Estados Unidos De Mexico.

If the Chicoms conquered the West of the US would you not still consider it America?
