It's interesting that the little girl's says she was expecting something else and she pauses before saying what she expected. The truth is that just like a ton of people, she was expecting a little bet of a "handout" from the government. A lot of us have benefitted from some form of tax-funded program. For myself, I received college assistance and of course attended public school. However, I find that what this little girl is asking for is that her illegal father get some sort of handout and welcome from the US Government. I don't like this attitude. We already have our own issues here and people that are either being lazy and receiving handouts or utilizing resources.

I never understood the concept behind accepting tons of illegal immigrants who will and may already be using the resources we have here.

I never understood the concept of rewarding people for criminal behavior.
