Easier to house 50,000 or so homeless people in LA. Than Houston with by far the largest per-capita rate of poor children of any top 10 city in America.

They pretty much have a third-world birth rate in Houston. Seems like it a perfect city for welfare though as Texas has excellent benefits for poor families as long as they have children. The rents and single-family homes are extremely cheap.

Lots of condos for $50,000 or less. Monthly hotels around $800/month. Lots of single-family homes for less than $100,000. This means that families who can't afford anywhere else are moving to Houston.

Houston has 30 percent higher birth rate than Mormons in Utah. Over Double the rate of New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine

Utah has about 16 births per 100,000

Very rich New Hampshire, Vermont have less than 10 births per 100,000. Maine has less than 10 births per 100,000 people based on population

But I thought Trump was still winning. Wasn't he supposed to make us all rich and throw out all my evil brown illegal neighbors? You can't have it both ways OP. Either Trump and the Repubs are fixing our problems or they aren't. But trolls will keep trolling.

I think fake conservatives are targeting minorities and the poor and scapegoating them. Think the movie "the purge".

Yes, shame on them for having kids they can't afford to feed themselves and the working taxpayer has to foot the bill for their families and their own also. Money grows on trees, you know.

Trump never said he'd make us all rich so why lie? Oh, here comes the skin color card just like clockwork. Yes, illegal aliens should be deported regardless of skin color or any evilness. They are here illegally so stop with the liberal BS!

Compassion goes a long way. Something you show knowing very little about.

Then you support these kids legal or illegal with your own tax dollars. The rest of us have enough on our plate supporting our own families. Why don't you hold their parents responsible?

I would rather see my money go towards feeding a hungry American than a stupid wall. Agree?

Don't even start any nonsense about abstinence because like everything else, it isn't applied equally.
Teens and women in higher income strata can afford to pay to terminate unwanted pregnancies and don't pretend that they don't.
We've seen how even "family values" Republicans live that very double-standard when it comes to their mistresses.

And don't even start on how many people are looking to adopt.

The people looking to adopt are NOT looking for infants born to poor, predominantly Hispanic teenagers.

So, what's the solution?
There is no hypocricy in opposing abortions but not wanting to feed the kids of irresponsible adults who won't practice birth control. There are clinics that provide birth control to the poor. People need to take responsibility for their own actions for a change. If they don't then they should be smart enough to at least get sterilized after one or two that they can't feed themselves.

Why is this?

It needs to be mandated at the federal level not the state level. Trump has that in his 2018 budget. It was the Democrats that refused to pass it the last time.

All of these human-like features you are describing - food, shelter, sexual congress - don't these vermin realize these are luxuries afforded only to those of us who have worked for big corporations?
