Illegals. Illegal aliens.
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.
Feel free to speak your mind: What is your opinion on immigration and undocumented immigrants? Are you pro or against it? What is your reasoning?
go ahead, say what you think. Why not?
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. In most cases, LPRs can not receive SSI, which is available only to U.S. citizens, and are not eligible for means-tested public benefits until 5 years after receiving their green cards.”

"They come here to live with us and don’t work and don’t try to learn English."
How many times have you heard that one? We complain constantly about immigrants not learning any English, call them lazy and whine about it. Now let’s break this down:
—> Person knows no English but conditions are devastating in his own country and there is no available education to learn fluent English before coming.
—> Person risks his life to come to the US in hopes of making a new life
—> Person has no idea what to do except work. He works 12 hour shifts every single day, and has no idea where or how to learn English.
CULTURE SHOCK: is the difficulty people have adjusting to a new culture that differs markedly from their own.
To just to support our complaints of immigrants not learning the language, we deny them education!!!
How does this make sense?
