Did someone say the illegals are lazy?

I don't like footing the bills for legal citizens, much less illegal aliens!

Who said the people who employ illegals, and work them as slaves are not guilty of breaking the law, and as corrupt as this government?

1920's-1950's if immigrants would have come in and taken any of those jobs the whites and blacks would have starved.
Americans have always done the jobs that some of you think we don't want or need because, you find physical work too hard there are many LEGAL AMERICANS to do these jobs. Immigration is over rated.

They are here and keep coming here because American mostly
White business owners hire them because they know they will
work hard. I don't like paying for anyone's medical.... not even
my own... but there are plenty of white American's milking the system
and that's not right either. I appreciate the hard working illegals here.
They do work I could never do........ or even want to do. If they
come to do that work for low pay that we all beneifit from... lower
prices at the grocery store for produce etc. Then they
deserve to be able to go to the emergency room just like anyone else
here. That is what America is all about... love it or leave it!!

The Pew Hispanic Center estimates that 5.9 million of the current 12 million illegals are not employed.
So a significant percentage of these illegal aliens who want only the chance to work.........are not even employed.

The American medical system's purpose is to provide health care to American citizens. Period. It was never intended to provide free care to millions of citizens of other countries who are here in violation of US immigration law. If an American citizen cannot afford health care, there are programs funded with tax dollars from other American citizens that, hopefully, will be able to help. As it is, we have difficulty providing medical care for our own countrymen. We do not need millions of illegal aliens claiming benefits that were never intended for them to the detriment of legal Americans. Illegal aliens are simply gaming the system.

Thank you madmann for pointing that out.
Well, no one is slamming hard working American's right?
This forum is a "slamming of Illegal's forum"... if
you want to change it we'll all chime in. My AMERICAN
husband is the hardest worker I know. And being that he
is an American he has all kinds of goodies... retirement,
social security, medical, dental, sick leave, and in 6 or
so more years he can retire and kick back for the rest of
his life. Yes, it does pay VERY WELL to be a hard working
AMERICAN.

Well, if they are employed under the table they wouldn't be on
the books right?

So, see you are set in 6 years as the rest of us see it going away. Oh, to be a senior citizen in a few years not, many worries right now. Your hard work will pay off. For some of us in 20-25 years good luck our hard work will be paying for what is not available.

Wow, I can't believe Americans waste this much time talking about how much they've been jipped by illegal immigrants. You have so much more money than them, regardless of paying for health insurance and taxes combined. You folks truly do not realize how blessed you are in this nation.

We're well blessed with idiots looking through those Hector Sanchez glasses.
