“white people are a dying race" That is something that was said to me by a lawyer today. She brought up the point that white people are having less and less children and more and more white people are becoming old. If we get rid of all of the immigrants, who is going to pay for the older generations social security?
Even undocumented immigrants pay taxes for social security. So, why does that make you want to rid of them all?
Georgia’s economy is projected to take a $391 million hit and shed about 3,260 jobs this year because of farm labor shortages, according to a report released Tuesday by the state’s agricultural industry.
How is it that it became OK to call humans aliens? Since when did illegal become a noun? Does no one think that is wrong to call someone an alien? That is basically off the bat saying they are criminals, dangerous and unwanted. You do not know them personally, so how can you group them all into this harsh category.
Illegal immigrants swarm into our country and quickly jump on the welfare rolls. They cost hard-working U.S. citizens billions and billions of dollars in taxes because of this subsidy.
"MYTH #3: The nation spends billions of dollars on welfare for undocumented immigrants.
FACTS: To the contrary, undocumented immigrants are NOT eligible to receive any “welfare” benefits and even legal immigrants are severely restricted in the benefits they can receive.
As the Congressional Research Service points out in a 2007 report, undocumented immigrants, who comprise nearly one-third of all immigrants in the country, are not eligible to receive public “welfare” benefits — ever.
Legal permanent residents (LPRs) must pay into the Social Security and Medicare systems for approximately 10 years before they are eligible to receive benefits when they retire.

While language is always important, it has a special prominence when the discussion turns to immigration—and race. As [linguist Geoffrey] Nunberg noted about the charged vocabulary around the topic: “The words refuse to be confined to their legal and economic senses; they swell with emotional…
A new study shows undocumented immigrants are reporting higher numbers of abuses by U.S. border patrol guards along the border with Mexico. The “Culture of Cruelty” study from the Arizona humanitarian group No More Deaths cites 30,000 cases of human rights abuses in short-term immigration detention between 2008 and 2011. The allegations range from border agents denying food and water to detainees, deliberately separating families, and forcing immigrants to sign removal orders. The report concludes the border guards’ alleged abuses meet the international definition of torture.
So far, only about 10 states allow undocumented students to attend college and pay in-state tuition versus skyrocketing international fees. In places like Alabama, undocumented students are banned from attending any and all colleges. The poll is about whether undocumented students should be allowed to pay in-state tuition.
