But LePage, who has had family members who've relied on welfare and who has made overhauling the programs a priority since taking office, said in his radio address that "illegal aliens who choose to live in Maine are not our most vulnerable citizens
"

Maine governor puts squeeze on welfare, immigrants

Agreed but illegal aliens are citizens of their country.

We need more governors like that in this country!

However, one thing worries me --- Obama and Holder are probably going to go after Governor LePage now.

It's so sad that when a Governor merely tries to follow the law that he is beaten and pilloried by others in government. Nobody asked those immigrants to live here. Why didn't they approach an African country to give them asylum?

Because they're not looking for asylum. They could have just gone to Mexico and stayed there if all they wanted was asylum from Central America.

They want the free welfare/food stamps/Dream Act free college education.

Noooooo....not in Mexico.

Mexico will let them go though and spend money.....but, that is it.....being in Mexico without papers is not a good time.

They went out of their way to print the article with a picture that made the governor look like a monster.
