Nevada can't ignore illegal immigrant problem | NevadaAppeal.com

Quote:
But along with the tearful pleas for budgetary clemency from those representing the disabled, elderly, mentally ill and classroom teachers, some unexpected voices were heard from a couple of state welfare workers concerned that illegal residents were getting more than their fair share of the state's human services pie.
Costing Americans more and more, unfairly.

Quote:
Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) was created so that needy persons could get temporary welfare checks to support their families in times of turmoil. The “fairness issue” raised by the state workers is that illegal immigrants are faring better than U.S. citizens these days in the growing welfare lines.
Why everyone is so concerned and ticked off in this country.

Quote:
Citizens are only eligible for a total of 60 months of lifetime benefits, while illegal Nevada residents, or more accurately their children, can receive up to 18 years of benefits. TANF's caseload has grown by 96 percent since the recession hit two years ago.


Why illegal aliens having anchor babies is killing this country.

Quote:
A recent study by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) found that illegal immigrants cost Nevada around $630 million annually, which is about 70 percent of the state's current shortfall.
You just can't fight the numbers.

Quote:
A November 2009 Rasmussen Poll found that “85 percent of likely voters say that individuals should be able to prove that they are in the country legally before they receive any federal, state or local government services.”
Step in the right direction, needing to be enacted NOW.

This is absolutely sickening. Yet, their supporters insist their presence is not a detriment to this country. After all, they are hardworking good people, doing the jobs lazy Americans won’t do. The fact that they are a burden to taxpayers is irrelevant.

And many can smell it from the East coast.
