Why are you making everything so racial?
haha, j/k.


But really, people who make less money are more affected by a big chunk of their check being eaten up by taxes.

The middle class are the least affected by illegal immigration, but they cry the loudest.

Hispanics and Latinos constitute 15.1% of the total United States population, or 45.5 million people,[1] forming the second largest ancestral group after European Americans (which in turn have numerous ethnic groups). It includes sub-groups such as Mexican American, Cuban American, Colombian American, Dominican American, Puerto Rican American, Salvadoran American and so on.
US Census Press Releases (http://www.census.gov/Press-Release/www/releases/archives/population/011910.html - broken link)

According to one of the anti-illegal think tanks CIS..

Quote:

Our best estimate is that the illegal immigrant population has declined by 11 percent through May 2008 after hitting a peak in August 2007.
The implied decline in the illegal population is 1.3 million since last summer, from 12.5 million to 11.2 million today.
Homeward Bound: Recent Immigration Enforcement and the Decline in the Illegal Alien Population | Center for Immigration Studies

So how does half of 45.5 million = 12 million? Your claim just doesn't add up! Besides not all of the illegal immigrant population are hispanic.

Haven't read the whole thread... but are you aware of the income guidelines for WIC? Ask your aunt about that. WIC income guidelines are very high compared to other social programs. So there are probably PLENTY, regardless of ethnicity, who do not appear to "need it". It doesn't have the same restrictions and guidelines as food stamps, as it is a supplemental nutrition program designed to assist pregnant women and kids under age 5 only.

Now, I personally don't agree with WIC making formula so easy to get because it is expensive and I think that someone should have to try and feed their babies the free and natural way first before getting free formula and I think WIC should do MORE to encourage and support breastfeeding (they do some, but IMO not enough)... but that's my own personal cause and really irrelevant so I'll leave it be.

jmarquise
; the kids wouldn't starve without WIC, sorry to burst your bubble. WIC is for preggo women, babies, kids under 5. Okay, so maybe some babies would be in really bad shape if the formula wasn't provided by WIC but otherwise, WIC is not FEEDING the kids completely. It is supplementing. It by no means provides a full menu.
