They are coming because our welfare benefits alone will make them feel like they are living high off the hog compared to where they came from.

These are not college educated people will skills here.
A few are.

But, most are not.

There is some skilled labor.

This is what ignorant people do, they take the path of least resistance. It is easier and requires less thought to travel a thousand miles while sitting on top of a train, then squat in America and collect freebees than it is to change their own country. To change their country, it take thought, intelligence, time, and someone to organize their efforts. These ignorant illegals are incapable of doing this.

As the thread continues I feel I have to remind some of you the thread has a topic. All threads do. This means that you should post only if you can contribute to the topic or have an opinion on the particular topic. This is not an invitation to post general rants, like some of you seem to believe.
Please stick to the topics or I will keep closing threads.
Yac.

Illegals used to have great health care before the economy collapsed. The employers paid for their healthcare and ignored the fact they were working illegally then the economy collapsed and with tightening work regulations most lost their insurance along with a lot of other people. People didn't stop getting sick and getting in accident though All you have to do is look at Arizona and Governor Brewer and Medicaid expansion. Carondelet and Banner were losing million of dollars. The ACA and Medicaid have put the hospitals and health care system in better shape so they are writing off 30% of their bills. By the way to get Medicaid or ACA you have to be here legally. More of the illegals are working under the table now and there is no health care for those people.

Nor should there be. They don't even have a right to be in this country.

I've never heard of this before. Illegals get free healthcare via emergency room just like they always have.
