IMO, if birthright citizenship won't be changed/re-interpreted then it should be the parents that have to qualify for welfare not thru their kids citizen or not. If the parents are here illegally then no welfare for them or their kids.

I agree with that. Most many people miss about this issue is even though the kids may qualify, the whole family gets the benefits. Food stamps will be used for the entire family for example and in many states (my lovely state is one)the parents of low income kids qualify for medical. Not to mention the kid probably qualifies for things like housing. So yep the parent gets it all too.

It is costing us billions in tax dollars supporting illegal aliens thru their U.S. born kids. If they hadn't come here illegally in the first place we wouldn't be in this fiscal predicament. We need those tax dollars for our own American families, our elderly and our vets.

Yep but those are the first cut. If we cut benefits to illegals we wouldn't get as many because they would see they would suffer without welfare. I'm tired of paying for them.

Let illegal aliens suffer: maybe they'll take the hint and leave the US.

I wish so too because then they would leave. But the illegal lovers would say it was cruel.

But it is cruel to the American people to allow them to stay. I don't understand why the defenders of illegal aliens would not take that into account especially if they themselves are citizens of this country. Why would they put foreigners above our own citizens?

Because they are either bleeding hearts who believe we have to help the world, are Hispanic themselves, or something like those. Otherwise, no idea why they defend them because illegals hurt all of us.

Even from a feminist's viewpoint, shouldn't they be more concerned about helping American women first before helping foreign women?

That's how it's supposed to be but NOW doesn't feel that way. That's what bothers me, they are supposed to be about helping women achieve equality but now it seems to help everyone but American women. You'd think they would be more understanding about minority women and how this will hurt them but they don't care. Then again NOW has many people in power who are immigrants. I get this email all the time from their VP and turns out this VP only immigrated here in 2008!
