Let the greedy employers pay for the health benefits of their illegal alien workforce. Why should taxpayers have the burden of footing the bill? Isnít it enough we are being forced to pay for their K-12 education?

Agreed. I guarantee you that if they had to foot the bills for the cost of social services, healthcare, educating, housing and feeding their beasts of burdens and their abundant off spring, they'd rather pay to have them deported instead.

These profit junkies wonít pay. They rely on the taxpayers to carry the burden. If they had to provide for their illegal workforce, illegal immigration would come to a screeching halt.

A misnomer, if ever one existed. How can two illegals give birth to a legal? Can two parakeets produce a cat? If you plant lettuce can you produce grapefruit? Itís ludicrous. But then, thatís another topic.

Truer words. Their deliberate skewing of the 14th and general obfuscation of reality is simply that.

The program is $32 billion for 4.5 years. When Bush was going to Congress asking for $100 billion for Iraq for 6 MONTHS I did not hear the conservatives expressing any "concern" over how much it cost.

Smokers are losers and slobs. Maybe if some of them quit then we won't have so many sick kids around that cost SCHIP money because their brainless parents are cigarette addicts. In my book smokers are worse than Heroin addicts. At least they keep their habit to themselves.

Someday the Iraq war will end. Illegal aliens are the gift that keeps on giving. Unfortunately.
