If you ask me, it just show how ignorant some people can be.

Some do not see the meaning of "a hand out".

I was referring to those that are looking for a "buck" as the hand out...whereas the hispanic is NOT standing at a intersection looking for a free "buck". Sure they may be getting a "hand out" in regards to free medical at a clinic etc...don't really know for sure...only what I read in the newspaper.

Geeez...maybe I should draw a picture for those who do not read or understand words.

Maybe next time they see a person asking for some cigs or beer money...ask in Spanish if they are in need of a job or just a free buck.

Steve

I think the problem here is that you are having a problem realizing that an illegal immigrant is different then a mentally ill/addict. Or do you think they are the same? Way to lower the bar there, amigo...

At anyrate, the problem of illegal immigration is the sheer volume. When you have millions of people willing to work for peanuts that will adversely effect the blue collar worker -- who is now referred to as 'the working poor'. That is the problem. Do you still need me to draw a picture for you?

AB, I understand that Steve isn't pro-illegal.. but the point here is: what illegal immigrants do -vs- what legal citizens do, is completely irrelevant.

How do criminals who are running around illegally in this country make anything better? The only thing they need is the police, FBI, army and border patrol on their ass.

Absolutely! Likewise, the inability to comprehend that a “free handout” need not be given on street corners to beggars. The mode and venue of distribution is irrelevant.

Furthermore, many of those “beggars” are veterans whom have fought for this country, and have earned the right to ask for a helping hand. It saddens me to hear citizens defending illegal aliens, while berating their fellow Americans experiencing hardships. Moreover, as camping mentioned, many of these poor souls are mentally ill, and have been dumped on the streets due to deinstitutionalization. It’s a national disgrace.
