I am not sure what led to to believe that I don't understand the states are feeling the effects of federal gov'ts lax illegal immigration enforcement.

Above I asked why the (state) gov't agencies aren't doing these things already? How hard would it be to verify U.S. citizenship before handing out welfare money and social services benefits?

If I ever see evidence of a cogent thought from him I will office up my sincere gratitude. In the mean time I won't hold my breath waiting.

ROFLMAO!

Just accept the fact that I do not bow down towards your pseudo 'intellectual' blather.

As you may be aware; enablers of illegal aliens, assuming they are indeed US citizens are traitors IMHO and need to be dealt with by LE.

The states have never passed state law, until recently, to do so. Or... was that a trick question?

Do you think states must pass a lot to NOT give financial assistance to illegal aliens? The proposed legislation sounds like it concerns checking IDs. In a post above I asked, Isn’t that something our lazy bureaucrats should be doing already? Why do they need a law to make them--lazy bureaucrats--verify citizenship before handing out benefits. Sheeesh.

In case you haven’t figured it out for yourself, the article you posted is all about a few politicians posturing with some proposed legislation. It is hardly newsworthy, except to a handful of ignorant goobers.

You obviously do not know the difference in State laws and Federal laws, along with who is responsible for enforcing what. Educate us Einstein.
