Even if they are legal on a green card what are they doing on welfare and food stamps?? If they can't or wont support themselves why are they allowed in are country? If they can't support themselves and all their anchors deport them and help the hard working American taxpayer for a change

FANTASTIC POINT, Junkman!

So sad but the trend for many illegals is to immediately apply for the "freebies" due to the advice and encouragement from Pro-Illegal Groups.

Immigrants are not allowed to use some services, but if their kids were born in the US they're US citizens and hence, unfortunately, entitled to use these services.

I don't and neither do you so let's not jump to conclusions shall we? Since the charts didn't indicate if they were here illegally, then i can assume that they are legal or maybe even citizens.

Very likely they arrived illegally, had a baby as soon as they could manage to do so, and then began collecting welfare.

But it's true our legal immigration laws are so lax that we're getting many welfare recipients coming in legally -- that family sponsorship sham where people bring in their elderly loved-ones only to put them immediately on welfare for us to support.

This is one reason the employers need this endless supply of illegals coming over the border. Once a baby is born, the first illegals can retire or cut way back on how much work they need to do. So the employer needs more -- and then more -- the working life of an illegal can be less than 9 months if they arrived already pregnant.

Same thing around here. just driving through my neck of the woods you wouldn't think there were many hispanics around here, but on food stamp day it looks like little mexico.
