when will illegal mexican start helping me pay my school, county hospital, property tax?
instead of sending all those greenbacks to mexcio why cannot the illegals start a fund to help us anglos and black taxpayers out that are being squeezed to pay for them living here. You can see them lined up at wire transfer centers all over the southwest wiring money back home. I wish i had some spare cash to send home to mom but I am paying for illegal mexicans.

Theodore Roosevelt's ideas on Immigrants and being an AMERICAN in 1907.
"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."
Theodore Roosevelt 1907

The U.S. should charge a 50% tax on all wire transfers made by non citizens who cannot prove they have a legal right to work in this country (green card)
the government keeps feeding us this dog and pony show about how they are hard at work trying to come up with an immigration reform bill so that they dont actually have to DO anything about it....We do not need immigration reform, the laws are already there what we need is immigration enforcement!!!!!
The republicans want them here so that they can make huge profits off of their labor....The democrats want them here as leverage over hispanic voters and to use them as a "victim" style voting base the way they use other minorities.
OPEN your eyes the government is a HUUUGE employer of illegals!!!!! next time you drive by a road construction crew look around!!!
And before you latinos start calling me a racist think about this....if you took all that passion and unity you recently showed in your protests and applied that to fixing your own country instead of trying to change ours you could accomplish so much that you wouldnt NEED to come here!!!!!!
What really gets me is how we are criticized for wanting to do What the mexican govt does to their illegals. It is a felony to be in mexico illegally and they enforce the hell out thier southern border using the military. A recent episode of "heroes" even said it....2 hondurans are sneaking into mexico and they are told if they are caught they will be shot.

The government turned a deaf ear to the influx of illegals. Illegals are given health care, food stamps, education at the expense of middle Americans. It's going to worse than better because their introducing more programs and yet the Democrats pork funds has been increased again. As an example of health care, I know receptionist who wonder how the illegals are able to get prenatal care, hospitalization, and post natal care. The program puts out billions of dollars out of our pockets. And, yet government does not listen to the people. We on retirement won't have that happy retirement if these shenanigans continue.

You ask the liberals...including GW Bush, and they will tell you that the illegals ARE paying. What they do not tell you is this.
1. They claim that they are only taking low paying jobs.
2. Those who earn low wages do not pay federal income tax with the exception of SSI.
3. Those who ARE paying SSI are doing it with stolen IDs (another crime)
4. If they have kids, their "earned income tax credit" outweighs thier "contribution" and they take more out of the system than they put in.
bob...stop drinking the BS. If they are paying, they are receiving the refund on the same number. You really need to open your eyes.

kudos to the last couple of people!!
ILLEGALS, dont get food stamps, or "free" health care. Really some people need to research before they start going off on here. Yes, so many unlegalized people, do get itin numbers, and DO their taxes. They might get refunds, but it's only because their kids are U.S citizens. Not only because they are doing their taxes. Exactly! want to send money to your momma? get a better job, that is why you went to school! Unlegalized people who DO pay taxes, DO get money taken away from them, and that money GOES TO YOUR SCHOOLS, TO YOUR HOSPITALS, TO ANY GOV. PROGRAM THAT IS USED TO PAY FOR THE LOW INCOME CITIZENS, AND TO THOSE IN THE STREETS BEGGING FOR MONEY!! i hate people saying immigrants are taking the citizens jobs. to me, that's only an excuse that of course they are going to say only because they have NO excuse to justify their low income jobs, or their reason to not work! why do you use the word anglo, and then black. It's whites, or blacks, or anglos, and african americans. Read books, watch the news, and get your facts straight!

IMMIGRANTS LEGAL AND ILLEGAL ALL PAY TAXES, THEY PAY INCOME TAX, SALES TAX, GAS TAXES, THEY ARE EVEN RESPONSIBLE FOR A PART OF PROPERTY TAX IF THEY RENT A HOME OR APARTMENT. IMMIGRANTS SPEND MONEY WHICH HELPS PAY OTHERS WHO WORK IN OTHER PROFESSIONS. ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION IS A HUGE ISSUE THAT MUST BE DEALT WITH BUT TRYING TO DEPORT ALL ILLEGALS IS STUPID. WHAT DO YOU THINK IT WOULD ACTUALLY COST TO DEPORT ALL OF THEM? THOSE WHO SAY THEY TAKE JOBS ARE WRONG UNEMPLOYMENT ACROSS THIS NATION IS UNDER 6% I CAN TELL YOU FROM EXPERIENCE HIRING EMPLOYEES FOR 30 YEARS THAT A LARGE PART OF THOSE UNEMPLOYEED DO NOT WANT TO WORK. YES THEY WANT A JOB BUT THEY DO NOT WANT TO WORK.
IMMIGRANTS ARE HERE TO BUILD A BETTER LIFE WHAT IS WRONG WITH THAT? THEY ARE WRONG IN HOW THEY HAVE GOTTEN HERE AND WE MUST ADDRESS THAT BUT IF YOU COULD SEE FROM WHERE THEY COME CAN YOU BLAME THEM FROM DOING WHATEVER THEY HAVE TO DO FOR THEIR FAMILIES? WOULDN'T YOU DO THE SAME

its not just wire transfers.. its wic programs and food stamps and free health care.. illegals drain the whole system maybe instead of bitching about it we should have the gov stop all that funding to the illegals by complaining to our state reps .. and the kicker is its all supported by the gov they have all this free money well lemme have my share... yeah go bush

If you knew anything you would realize that most do pay taxes! they work and pay taxes but have no means of recieving any kind of return so really they pay more than a lot of us citizens. Also, they CAN NOT get food stamps, and i have no problem with them recieving wic. every pregnant woman and child should be taken care of.

I think illegals will help US citizens pay for all that when they all learn English and become US citizens. Which will be when pigs learn how to fly!!
