Yes and no.

Our Arizona employer sanctions law is starting to bite down now.

What many seem to miss is that we infact will not have to deport all 20 million. Yes many will be deported. But by enforcing existing laws and making new laws that punish both employers and landlords we will remove the safe havens for the illegals. They will not want to stay and will self deport back where they came from.

I also asked for a reputable source. Snopes.com saying that a "recent survey" revealed something does not mean anything. Do they ask expectant mothers if they're citizens? Doubtful.
You asked for reputable sources?

I think it sucks for us as the tax payers. What do you think?

These people get it for free, while a middle class family who can't afford health care, has to pay for their births. It's sick.

Of course a congressman wouldn’t know what’s happening in his district (#5), and a medical website would be oblivious to what’s impacting their profession (#4 & 6).

Yes and if you don't have insurance you have to pay higher costs than those who do..

So much easier to be an illegal and get it for free -- no credit check, no credit ruined. Then just grab somebody else's SS# if you need it.

How do I defend them? I use my logic. No pro-illegal arguments nor anti-illegal arguments sway my opinions.
