They shouldn't and for the same reasons a US citizen shouldn't. Every rob and redistribute scheme is an immoral act.

But welfare to "illegals" isn't? Its your submission to such schemes that allow for the latter.

Citizens are a captive audience and the Dems already have those votes locked in. Not only can they take them for granted, but the Dems can continue TO TAKE from them. The people who vote "D" today would still voluntarily hand over their wallets and indeed-sign their own death warrants before ever crossing over and voting "for an evil racist Republican".

The Dems are fully aware of this.

Need to continue to stack the deck and grow the base till they outnumber the R's until it becomes mathematically impossible for the GOP to ever win.

That's why foreigners are being courted, pandered, and catered to while domestics are pretty much being kicked to the curb.

Looking through this prism, thus the Dems aren't the problem per se.

It's the idiots that still blindly support them and keep them in power that are.

Why should US taxpayers money go to helping immigrants (legal or otherwise) before American citizens? Why do leftists want to put virtually anyone ahead of Americans-and fund them by the US taxpayer? It's almost like...they hate American citizens, and want to see this nation fail.

Dipchit de Blasio needs to just go away. If he, and other liberal Dems continue to penalize working NYC residents, even NYC liberals may turn on them and elect someone with a brain again. This is the kind of incompetence that got Giuliani elected back in the day.

So, if I’m an owner of subsidized housing, why would I care if a tenant is legal, or illegal? I’ll be getting paid the same regardless, right? Someone will be living there, and Uncle Sam will be kicking in a portion of the rent, no matter who lives there.

Unless citizens will be out on the street because illegals are taking up too much space, I don’t see why it matters. I’d be more interested in screening for tenants who won’t wreck the place.

Why should either foreigners or "domestics" get a dime of my income? All taxation is theft.
