Illegals are just one of our problems in reality; but a problem.

I have heard and seen it with my own eyes more then I can count. Some of these people have never bothered to learn our language, but want to be catered too, yes they do.

And that is funny because I am well traveled, and most European Countries I have visited and my Culture which is Italy, they speak English well. In restaurants, on the street, and in the little shops. Maybe not the best English, but they speak English. I never ever felt my family or friends were being made fun of. In fact in Italy, and France, I had a hell of a good time with the people there. And in france, I know what most people say about them. they were most accommodating to us.

So I totally disagree with you, and you can with me. Not the fact we are afraid of the Spanish language, that is ignorant. What we do not like, is that some of these people wish for us to cater to them, but they won't put any effort into learning our language. It is a two way highway by the way not one.
Exactly. I worked in a job years ago where we got people who would ask for translators. They didn't bother learning English but expecting a Spanish speaker at the store. I speak Spanish but why should I? I think it's ridiculous that welfare programs have translators.

This is the SPANISH site of the medical program in Illinois: All Kids cuidados de salud para todos los nios

Here's one of the parts of the site: You do not have to be a citizen or a legal immigrant to get Moms & Babies.
You do not need to have a Social Security number to get Moms & Babies.


Oh and the states also has Family Care for the families of these kids. So the illegals get free healthcare! What a country.

Yet the pro-illegals claim that illegal aliens can't get benefits. If they get them as a family then yes they do get all forms of welfare.

Exactly. In Illinois we have something like 75% of those on welfare are illegals. The sick irony is try being disabled or childless and applying for help. You have to be severely disabled and then you'll get some help (but not like the illegals). I'm generally talking people who are severely disabled to work, like severely mentally challenged. Childless who are unemployed might get something like $20 a month on food stamps and that's it. Almost always these childless work or did work. Meanwhile the illegals don't even have to be taxpayers in this state. I don't know if this program is still around but there was another welfare program just for immigrants legal and illegal who just arrived.

That's just wrong. Welfare needs to be English ONLY AND proof of being in the US legally is needed.

I agree but in Illinois the Democrats are afraid of offending the illegals. It's so messed up. Meanwhile getting any form of assistance is hard for the childless, even if disabled or needing help.

I do not have a feeling of entitlement. I do not want anything from the feds other than what is written in the Constitution. criminal illegal aliens should be put back over the border and have felonies attached to them, so they can never come across legally as they are criminals.

What gets me is why the Dems are so afraid of pissing off illegal aliens since illegals and their fans HATE the Repubs.
