As we are now finding out here in Oklahoma, the savings will come in reduced rates for public assistance.

I dont see why you need to inject race into this, but the premise of your post is correct. If we weren't wasting so much money on illegal aliens, we could afford to take better care of the poor Americans that actually BELONG here and still have plenty of money left over.

OK: NJ Chutzpah did bring up a 'race card'; that stated, the ghetto Black kids are Americans------and, better to help our own than a bunch of people who came here illegally on their free will.

Note I said 'help'------not coddle a group of people for 'playing the fool'.

My point was that there are plenty of poor white people too...who are also Americans. No need to play the race card to make the point. That is how we lose credibility on the illegal alien issue (the REAL issue).

No argument from me there either

Both you and NJ Chutzpah are 'correct' in the overall scheme of things------just from different perspectives.

It was in NJ where 4 black American college kids were hacked up with machetes by illegals and shot -- just for the crime of being in their own neighborhood which the illegals felt should now be theirs.

Hopefully the people and even the poiticians of New Jersey see what's ahead before it's too late.

The Hispanic voting bloc is too powerful in New Jersey, along with many liberals who live in the state.
