Only weeks after a new state law went into effect, the Department of Economic Security has provided federal authorities with nearly 800 names of people who tried to obtain public benefits but are believed to be illegal immigrants.

Since mid-November, DES has discovered 772 people who sought public benefits but could not verify their legal status, said Steve Meissner, a DES spokesman. Because they could not verify their status, they never received benefits.

Well, they were looking for benefits, probably welfare benefits(it says that they probably looking for benefits for their children) They deserve to get deported in my opinion. I have no compassion for those kind of illegal immigrants.

Spokesman for immigrants without borders tried to put a nice spin on it - but it doesn't wash. If they know they are entitled to certain benefits even though undocumented, why would they be too scared to apply?

Good news when the laws actually get enforced, they seem to work well at what they were designed to do.

This goes for all laws. Here in CA we seem to like just adding blanket laws to aid LE but it still never gets enforced.
