STUDY: Illegals Take More from Government than They Pay

(Joshua Paladino, Liberty Headlines) A report from the Center for Immigration Studies found that allowing illegal immigrants, who are predominantly low-skilled, to stay in the United States causes a net fiscal drain on the economy.

Numbers from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) showed the average cost of deportation was less than $11,000, while permitting uneducated illegal immigrants to remain in the country costs, on average, over $65,000. The CIS reported that the lifetime cost of allowing the estimated 11.43 million illegal immigrants in the country to stay is nearly $750 billion.

The main reason illegal immigrants take more in government assistance than they pay in taxes is their level of education.

“Because the overwhelming share of illegal immigrants residing in the country have not completed high school or have only a high school education, it would require highly implausible assumptions to avoid a substantial net fiscal drain from this population,” said Steven Camarota, the Center’s director of research.

Senators Tom Cotton (R-AR) and David Perdue (R-GA) introduced an immigration reform bill on August 2, called the RAISE Act, but it does not address the fiscal drain caused by illegal immigrants.

The RAISE Act would reduce the number of legal immigrants that can come to the United States each year. Legal immigrants, however, have similar levels of educational achievement to their native-born counterparts, according to a study by the Migration Policy Institute, which means they will, on average, contribute more in taxes than they receive in services.

David Bier, immigration policy analyst at the Cato Institute, said the RAISE Act will harm the American economy because it restricts the number of educated immigrants who can come to the country.

“Rather than cutting immigration, Congress should raise the employment-based quotas, which it has not adjusted since 1990 — when the United States had some 77 million fewer people and the economy was half the size it is now,” Bier wrote in the New York Times. “A smart reform would double green cards and peg future work visas to economic growth, responding to market forces rather than political whims.”

The RAISE Act does not secure the border or provide resources to deport illegal immigrants, but it would create a merit-based immigration system.

“The RAISE Act is an attempt to rebalance the portion of skilled versus family in the immigration flow,” Executive Director of CIS Mark Krikorian said, according to Fox News.

Krikorian claimed immigration has kept wages stagnant.

“If we have, for instance, the highest percentage of our working age population that isn’t working, is not even looking for work, how is it helping things to import more people from abroad?” he asked.

Bier, however, argued that stagnant wages and job loss are caused primarily by burdensome regulations and automation, not immigrants.

While the effects of legal immigration on wages of native-born Americans is debatable, less legal immigration will not end the fiscal drain caused by illegal immigrants. That can only be accomplished by preventing illegal immigrants from receiving government benefits or by deporting them.

          • Marie Saqueton

            Exactly, that is how they receive better benefits than seniors who has worked for over 50 years and only get a small social security retirement, and still pays for their Medicare coverage, senior advantage coverage for the hole in Medicare and on top of that still pays co-pay and their meds., which none is paid by illegals. Seniors still pay taxes also on their social security. Low income seniors also is not given food-stamps and housing subsidy. The law must change to take care of Americans first and not illegals. Disabled Veterans are also suffering. I know for I volunteer to help them. and the homeless Americans. Charity begins at home, but Demoncrats would rather help the illegals and refugees rather than the citizenry….so sad.

          • TOM HENRY

            So sad is right, yet we have to put with this crap. Demoncrats and their stupidity has been going on since President Kennedy.

          • Concerned

            Taxes are payed under a stolen name and social security number. This has ruined many people’s lives when the IRS starts auditing that number.

            You are talking about SALES TAX, STUPID. Talk about Federal income tax from your portfolio holdings, real estate, investments etc., which none of them pay a penny but they do use all the amenities this country offers including hospitalization, education. housing subsidies, food stamps and pension.

            In South Texas, I have met department heads of various corporations, who were born in Texas, but raised in Mexico. Now they have jobs on the Texas side, and are willing to drive 1 or 2 hours to their jobs on the American side every day. They don’t speak English well and often don’t understand technical or manufacturing language, causing a great deal of confusion. But they are American citizens since they were born in Texas, and they lower wages for American citizens who were BORN and RAISED here! So Miss AKLady2015, you are WRONG! You have not had to conduct business in South Texas.

          • AKLady2015

            Ha, ha, ha …
            I’ve lived in South Texas.
            As a military dependent,
            I’ve lived in almost every state that hosts a military base.
            Oh, and by the way, I was born and raised in Miami.

            Please educate all of us as to how they avoid doing so.
            It is automatically calculated and added by the cash register, every time you buy something. As for income tax, what makes you think an illegal earns enough to pay those taxes?

          • What’s that you say?

            Dah those are sales taxes not payroll taxes. They work under the table most of the time. Go over to Home Depot. The illegals are day laborers. When the are sick or hurt they go to the emergency room. Who do you think pays for that? If they have kids in the US their kids are citizens entitled to government benefits.
            ANYWAY, What makes you think someone shouldn’t pay any income tax?

          • AKLady

            As for income tax, what makes you think an illegal earns enough to pay those taxes?

            Obviously, you do not file U.S. income taxes. Your ignorance of the tax tables says all that needs to be said.

          • What’s that you say?

            I pay more income tax than you earn in 10 years. So your obvious assumption is wrong. Everyone living here needs to pay something in income taxes. I know the tax tables better than you. I have a business that employees hundreds.
            You are a freeloader. Your vote should not be allowed in this great country.

          • AKLady

            I am a retired surgeon.
            I suspect, I still earn far more you do each year.
            I also expect I have employed far more people than you have.
            Also, smart business owners hire tax experts, bookkeepers and payroll experts.

          • What’s that you say?

            I have all all those folks.
            And I doubt seriously you make more than I do.
            How does a surgeon employee hundreds of employees? And if you make that kind of money we now know why health care is so expensive. You did it for the money not to help people be honest.

          • AKLady

            By owning a clinic.
            By being a partner in a surgery center.
            By being an investor in a private hospital.
            ,
            I served two tours at combat hospitals in Vietnam.
            I was active duty military for 6 years.
            I was a military dependent for 20 years.
            I buried two husbands at Arlington, KIA Vietnam.
            .
            Why is health care expensive?
            Ask the insurers who provide medical malpractice insurance.
            Ask the insurers who provide clinics with liability insurance …
            Ask the manufacturers who provide our materials and equipmwnt.
            Ask drug companies…
            .
            Oh, last, but not least, ask the medical schools why tuition is so high.

          • What’s that you say?

            Still doesn’t add up to hundreds of employees directly working under your payroll but you had a wonderful career.
            I also thank you for your service.
            However, All those issues on the high cost of health care mostly stem from liberal policies.
            Lawyers lobby for the Democrats because it keeps them in business making gobs of money. There are great conservative states like Texas that passed tort reform. Lowered liability insurance for for doctors substantially. Doctors love Texas.

          • AKLady

            Is that why Texas has a shortage of medical professionals?
            Texas is #5 in the top 10 doctor shortage states. In 2015, your state had
            177 doctors for every 100,000 residents. Even Alaska does better.

          • What’s that you say?

            You were the one blaming insurance costs. You either agree with tort reform or you don’t. Your arguments don’t hold water .

          • AKLady

            What does tort reform have to do with all the other required forms of insurance? Tunnel vision does not win arguments.

          • What’s that you say?

            Tort reform lowers malpractice insurance. A significant cost, Which means you could charge less to see patients unless you pocket it.
            You charge insurance carriers less for services, they charge less for insurance to the people as long as there is competition.
            I guess you have no business or economic sense.

          • What’s that you say?

            Comparing Texas to Alaska is a weak argument.

          • AKLady

            LOL. Alaska is about three times larger than Texas.
            However, that does not have any effect on the doctor per population figures. Your state is short on doctors — period.

          • What’s that you say?

            Alaska has a population of 750,000. Texas has 27,000,000. Hardly a comparison. You will see Texas improve greatly in the ratio over the next 5 years because the legislature is addressing what you complained about. Tort reform is lowering the cost of doctors to do business. The economy is strong. No state income tax, lower cost of living, large corporations relocations
            Besides Your doctors are far and few between. Your ratio needs to be higher to cover the spread out population,
            I’ll bet the ratio in Homer or Whitehorse is not so good.
            And I hope you aren’t counting yourself in the ratio. Lol

          • AKLady

            Hardly a comparison?
            If anything, Alaska should have a higher population to doctor ratio than Texas.
            .
            Spread of population? LOL.
            Nest time look up facts before running your fingers.
            Alaska’s has vast empty areas. The majoroty of our population lives in Anchorage,

Just because it is a law, doesn’t mean that people don’t abuse it. They do because they can get away with it. Such as illegals don’t get welfare benefits. They do. I have already made an example of that. Illegals are stripping away our tax dollars, and you leftist-libs are saying that it is unconstitutional to deport them. Even the illegals that are in jail or prison. What about the illegals that commit murder, rape, and thievery. You leftist-libs still say it is unconstitutional to put them on trial, punishment, and deport them. For what?? Just so that the state and federal prisons can receive more money for their upkeep. I suggest you get your information from sources that are true facts. But then again you can’t FIX STUPID!!!

          • AKLady

            State the false accusations and pure nonsense. Each one.

          • AKLady

            Illegals do not qualify for welfare.

            The fact an American citizen child qualifies, does not prove your statement valid.

            No one says it is unconstitutional to deport an illegal.

            However, the 5th and 146h Amendment clearly require that a trial take place and that they be provided with legal representation. If caught in the act of crossing the border, they can be immediately returned to Mexico.
            .
            Felon illegals, who have had a fair trial, can be, and are, deported at the time of release from prison. However, the state cannot detain the person past their sentence to facilitate federal action. In contrast, the state could permit the prisoner to stand federal trail during a state incarceration.

            Oh, and by the way, Unlawful Entry is a misdemeanor (civil). not a felony (criminal).
            8 U.S. Code § 1325.

          • TOM HENRY

            Illegals don’t qualify for welfare. That is correct. But they do get it, they receive it. What is it that you don’t understand. They receive welfare, food stamps, unemployment benefits, medical benefits off of our tax dollars. While other people living in the same household, have jobs and go to work. And no they do not pay the same taxes as we do, because they do not pay income tax.

            There are a lot of people who say it is unconstitutional to deport an illegal. From Governors to Mayors from Washington State to New York. You need to watch the news and other news sources. And not the fake news.

            Illegals that are caught crossing the border are not immediately returned to Mexico. It takes anywhere from one month to six months to return them.

            You need to get out of Alaska and come South and see what really goes on. You go by the laws too much. Your point of view is, if it is a law then everybody is following the law. You are way out of touch.

            Unemployment Insurance is not welfare. In most states, both employer and employee pay premiums on wages. In other states, only the employer pays into the system. Those benefits are bought and paid for. UI is paid for a limited period of time. The applicant must be ready, willing and able to be employed.
            .
            Public assistance requires that unless the applicant is 100% disabled, a minor, or elderly, the applicant must be ready, able and applying for employment.
            Limited medical benefits are provided. That is a matter of national security/defense. Suggest you look up the mortality numbers for the last flu epidemic.
            I have family in four Southern states, including Texas. I visit at least bi-yearly I know exactly what takes place.
            You seem to know little to nothing about law, let alone the number of prosecutions which take place. Oh, and by the way, we also have illegal immigrants here in Alaska. The majority come from Asia and the Pacific.
            Maybe you should do a bit more research before running your fingers over the keyboard.

          • TOM HENRY

            Never said that unemployment insurance is welfare. I don’t need you to explain what UI is. I don’t need you to explain what Public assistance is. But you think everybody else is ignorant, when it is clearly and obviously YOU that is ignorant. Just because you visit bi-yearly here in Texas doesn’t make you an expert on what goes on in this State. Because you know nothing of what is going on in Texas.

          • AKLady

            Dear Henry, my family founded Hempstead. While we were not among the first forty, we were within the first 100. I have family in Texas.
            I have family in Alabama, Louisiana and Texas government.
            How dare you tell me that living in Alaska, I cannot possibly know what is going on at border states. Your assumptions say you are ignorant and extremely biased.

          • TOM HENRY

            So what if your family founded Hempstead. So what if you have family in Texas. I am not impressed. That doesn’t mean that you actually know what goes on down here in Texas. Your ignorance has overwhelmed you.

            Some do, by using the names of their relative overseas or out of this country to invest and flip properties while they do not pay capital gains tax etc. and pretend that the money is coming from the overseas relatives, while they themselves go on welfare and especially when a family member is very sick with high cost of care and meds. I know of some people living in million dollar homes doing this and even if you alert the govt. they are good at escaping prosecution and working the system. Not all illegals are destitute.

            If you curse a lot, you’re smarter than your clean-mouthed counterparts, according to a recent study.

            indicator of healthy verbal abilities,” reads the study, published
            in the November issue of Language Sciences.

          • Marie Saqueton

            In the educated world, using curse words or profanity just labels the person as INTELLECTUALLY BANKRUPT because his vocabulary is limited, that is why they resort to bad words. It also shows that they suffer from some form of emotional insecurity and low self worth, and inflicting insults to someone makes them feel better about themselves. In other words….they are SICK.

      Linda, please look at the source of this “study”. Factcheck of CIS says of them:

      Bias: Extreme Right, Hate Group

      Notes: The Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) is a non-profit research organization “that favors far lower immigration numbers and produces research to further those views.” It was started as a spin-off from John Tanton’s Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) in 1985. Reports published by the CIS have been widely deemed misleading and riddled with basic errors by scholars on immigration; think tanks from across the ideological and political spectrum; media of all stripes; several leading nonpartisan immigration-research organizations; and by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The organization has also drawn criticism for its financial and intellectual ties to extremist racists. The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) published reports in 2002 and 2009 connecting CIS to John Tanton, who helped found various other organizations, including the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) and NumbersUSA, and showing he has ties to white supremacy groups and a eugenics foundation (SPLC). Bottom line, this is a hate group. (2/8/2017)

      • mamacancook

        You live in Delusion Land! CBO says that the average illegal alien family collects $24,000 in welfare every year!! That’s Obozo’s CBO.

            I know that they get in TEXAS

          • What’s that you say?

            You are confused. Corporations create jobs. Illegals take these jobs and lower the wages.
            Corporations are given tax incentives by various cities to locate there.
            It’s called competition. Ever here of it?
            If I were a governor I would compete to bring jobs to my state. If it takes incentives so be it. A person with a job is a productive citizen. One without a job is a drain on the system, basic economics.

          • ARJAY

            Don’t you think it interesting that libTURD democRATS SAY high taxes do NOT affect job creation, but they offer LOWER TAXES as incentives to bring in job creating companies to their areas?

          • AKLady2015

            Maybe you should check out the types of lowered taxes.
            You might also want to check out the time limits on those offers.
            Then, there are also the absence of services in those areas.

          • What’s that you say?

            Yes I love the New York State commercial it makes me laugh. Come to New York we are open for business low taxes and incentives for 10 years offered. The problem with most liberals is they are not too bright.

          • ARJAY

            Then after the 10 years, their taxes SKYROCKET!!

            And they steal SS numbers. I know someone tried to use mine, as I have received letters from the IRS for 3 years in a row, that they suspect someone has tried to use my SS number. In their letter, they give me a special code to put on my income taxes because I received their warning letter. Several years ago, the SS numbers of students who attended the University of Texas, going back for many years, were hacked. Also, illegals search for dead peoples’ SS numbers to use. It’s been proven.

            Illegals do not qualify for welfare.

            They’re not supposed to, but it’s the counties that make the decision of who is eligible, and trust me, plenty of them do receive it.

            I also agree completely with your view of corporate welfare. QE is corporate welfare, TARP was as well. Corporate welfare is nothing but outright theft from taxpayers.

            We’re talking about illegal immigrants.

            I live and work in Silicon Valley, there are plenty of immigrants here. Some I work with.

            But I really don’t care about the welfare issue, and I think it’s a distraction. The point is, why isn’t there any debate about giving illegals a path to legality. If the defenders of these illegal immigrations actually want to help them, why aren’t they pushing for some way to bring them into legal status?

            Well, they are apparently allowing illegal immigrations to go on welfare then.

            A simple search engine query will show this is true.

            In all this “debate” about illegal immigration, don’t you find it interesting that a path to legality and/or relaxing immigration requirements to become a US citizen has never been part of this debate?

            The fact of the matter is people “defending” illegal immigrants are defending the right of existing businesses to have a second class labor class, who do not have the same rights and protections of US citizens, as well as responsibilities. That’s what they are actually fighting for, which is why there’s no debate about changing their legal status.

          CIS also touches on a common myth about undocumented immigrants: Do they receive welfare? The short answer is no.

          Undocumented immigrants are not eligible for public benefits, and legal immigrants can receive benefits only once they have been a citizen for five years. Yet, the study calculates the welfare costs for children of undocumented immigrants.

          Yet, some argue there is an often overlooked benefit of supporting these children.

          “These kids who get subsidized school lunches today will go on to graduate high school … will go on to college and move up to the middle class of America,” Linda Chavez, president of the Becoming American Institute, a conservative group that advocates for higher levels of legal immigration to reduce illegal immigration, told USA Today. “Every time we have a nativist backlash in our history, we forget that we see immigrants change very rapidly in the second generation.”

          • Fedup

            The Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program (TANF) was created by the U.S. Dept of Health and Human Services a few years ago so that illegal aliens could get monthly welfare checks to help support the entire family. It is the only public assistance program where parents can apply in their children’s name as opposed to applying in their own. It also does not require parents to demonstrate that they are in the U.S. legally since most aren’t.

            You also have to understand that, since “anchor babies” are determined to be legal American citizens, they qualify for public assistance which also benefits the entire family.

          • Mort

            The Imigration Law Center says the flowing applies but exceptions are granted. I don’t think this is a big program and just puts some food on the table.

            “Categories of Immigrants: “Qualified” and “Not Qualified”

            The 1996 welfare law created two categories of immigrants for benefits eligibility purposes: “qualified” and “not qualified.” Contrary to what these names suggest, the law excluded most people in both groups from eligibility for many benefits, with a few exceptions. The “qualified” immigrant category includes:

            lawful permanent residents, or LPRs (people with green cards)
            refugees, people granted asylum or withholding of deportation/removal, and conditional entrants
            people granted parole by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for a period of at least one year
            Cuban and Haitian entrants
            certain abused immigrants, their children, and/or their parents
            certain survivors of trafficking
            All other immigrants, including undocumented immigrants, as well as many people who are lawfully present in the U.S., are considered “not qualified.”

          • Fedup

            A relatively new federal program that allows illegal immigrants to use their American-born anchor babies to collect welfare for the entire family has expanded nationwide and nearly doubled in a western state that already spends hundreds of millions of dollars to provide undocumented residents with public services.

            The Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program (TANF) was created by the U.S. Dept of Health and Human Services a few years ago so that illegal aliens could get monthly welfare checks to help support the entire family. It is the only public assistance program where parents can apply in their children’s name as opposed to applying in their own. It also does not require parents to demonstrate that they are in the U.S. legally since most aren’t.

            In Nevada alone, the TANF program’s caseload has grown 96% since the recession hit the state like an atomic bomb two years ago. A news report reveals that around 4,250 of the families receiving the benefit in Nevada have “mixed immigration status.” In other words, U.S. taxpayers are supporting thousands of illegal alien families because they have at least one anchor baby.

            Nevada already blows a whopping $630 million a year to provide its rapidly growing illegal immigrant population with public services that should be reserved for legal U.S. residents. The Silver State spends $470 million annually to educate the children of illegal immigrants in public schools and an additional $45 million for limited English programs. Eighty five million goes to healthcare for illegal immigrants and $31 to incarcerate them.

            Illegal aliens are also largely responsible for Nevada’s home foreclosure crisis, reportedly the nation’s worst. Around 5 million fraudulent mortgages nationwide are in the hands of illegal aliens, according to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, and it is no secret that a substantial chunk of them are in Nevada.

            You are wrong. Under Obama, the moment they crossed, they got free cell phones. Obama didn’t care if they were legal or not. Maybe they could vote for Democrats someday (illegally), or their children who were to be born here would become citizens and vote for the Democrat welfare state. The working people are tired of having their taxes constantly raised to pay for those who refuse to work or don’t have the skills to get a job in the US.

          • AKLady,

            I know the legal aspects of welfare. My concern is for the people who have been here illegally and have had children here who are citizens. But I believe that will be resolved. So far illegals have been ones with criminal convictions.

          • AKLady

            Research suggests that the overrepresentation of some minorities in the criminal justice system is due to socioeconomic factors and racial discrimination by the criminal justice system [Source: Gabbidon & Greene (2005b:37); Bowling (2006:140). See also Sampson & Wilson (2005:177-178); Myrdal (1988:88).]

            Minor children cannot sponsor their parents. People, such as yourself, believe that their children will immediately be able to sponsor them for permanent residence. U.S. citizens cannot file immigrant petitions for their undocumented parents until they turn 21. The parents must return to their home countries and remain there until they meet the requirements for a green card.

          • AKLady

            I am with you on everything but the racial crap in the justice system. Your stats are biased. Certainly there have been officers in the past who have been deficient on race but they are few and far between today. Put yourself in an officer’s position. If someone is pointing a weapon at you, do you care what race, gender or anything else, the person is?

            I am aware of immigration issues. Those need fixing badly. Immigration needs to be corrected now, not down the road. I find it more important than taxes to fix immigration. We cannot leave these people in limbo forever.

            Court appointed defense attorneys are over-worked and under-paid.
            They also get a huge backlash from the public. Hillary Clinton’s case involving an alleged rapist is a prime example of that backlash.
            .
            Every time I hear Trump mouth the word “wall”, I cannot help but visualize the Berlin Wall. Walls keep people in, as well as out. Oh, and by the way, 98% of our Southern border is already barricaded, usually with barbed-wire topped double fencing.

          • AKLady,

            Sorry, I thought you were referring to the police. I agree with the lack of defense attorneys and specialized people who can deal with mental issues. We are making progress on the latter but slowly.

          • AKLady

            You and I tend to agree more than we disagree,
            We also do so in a civilized manner.
            Reagan emptied the mental hospitals, putting those with the most serious disorders into the streets. Our jails and prisons are where they are currently housed — without treatment.

          • AKLady,

            To be sure we seem to be on the same path when it comes to the total lack of mental health. I urged the legislature (highly GOP) to wake up to geh fact that our prisons and jails were full of people who had mental deficiencies. Not all seemed serious but the persons lacked the ability to make a living for themselves, much due to mental IQ but drugs were a major issue with many. One influential GOP member and some Democrats made some effort to get steps taken to depopulate jails and prisons. That has resulted in the construction of some facilities state wide to deal with people whose behavior is approaching violence and certainly not normal. It has a long way to go but is a start. We have been bad at handing out long sentences for drug use. That needs to stop. That issue is no different than any other when people do not seek or do not have, resources to improve themselves.

          • AKLady

            President Obama issued a number of pardons related to those drug convictions. None of those pardoned were convicted of serious, violent crimes.

            The U.S. has more prisons, and prisoners, than al the other modern, industrialized countries — including Russia, China and the former U.S.S.R. Our country also has the highest recidivism rate.

            Other nations provide job training to prisoners. The mostly do not leave them sitting idle in cells for extended periods of time Yes, China and Russia have very cruel systems.

            However, what most AmericansSweatshop labor is back with a vengeance. are unaware of are the number of states that “rent” out prisoners. Sweatshop labor is back with a vengeance. Corrections Corporation of America and G4S (formerly Wackenhut), two prison privatizers, sell inmate labor at subminimum wages to Fortune 500 corporations like Chevron, Bank of America, AT&T, and IBM.

            As an interesting asidw, I point out that the Thirteenth Amendment abolishing slavery would madrean exception for penal servitude precisely because it had become the dominant form of punishment throughout the free states.

          • AKLady,

            Precisely prisoners are being mistreated in this country. The 13th Amendment needs further correction on the abuse of prisoners. It still allows that part that says prisoners can be utilized for punishment for crimes. Yes, Idaho does have work projects and a large farm for prisoners at the state level but not in city or county facilities. Some of those prisoners rot there for years. They get to clean up trash along the highways and major streets in the city. Otherwise, they sit in cells. These especially are the ones we are working to correct at present. Some are at a low IQ status and some have impairments to their health or mental state. They commit minor crimes repeatedly to get inside out of the winter cold and summer heat. Southern Idaho gets very hot during the summer months. We have had some dozen100+ days since the beginning of July and will have more. We also get serious nasty spell of smoke from range fires that lower our air quality to dangerous status. We are in one now. It has lasted for about two weeks now and no letup in sight. I went to a small store this morning to buy bananas. It is just two blocks away. My eyes were burning and watering along with nasal dripping just from the bad air quality. Some of these people are out in this kind of environment cleaning up trash along roadways. They are not out today, thank goodness. But the street people are out in it. It is horrible.

            Sorry to sound so negative about what people have to go through in public places. But it makes me sick.

          • AKLady

            I remember the ‘good old days’. Driving through the South, it was common to see “chain gangs” working along the highway. They were always in black and white, long-sleeved prison uniforms.
            There would be 20 or more men chained together — in the broiling sun. Usually you would see a pick-up truck with a water can in the bed, hardly more than 5 gallons in size.

            Some of the guard would be sitting on horseback, rifle in hand. Others held horse whips. I was a child. It was a common sight. It made a huge impression upon me.
            We have had a number of very warm days here in Alaska. Of course, our “hot” is relative. Where I am, 70F or above can put people in the hospital.

          • AKLady,

            I saw a chain gang in Kentucky once in the early 1950’s. Needless to say, I was not impressed.

            I came from a place where race was never an issue. There were two black kids in my graduating class and they were very likeable kids. They dressed, talked and acted like us. I never gave them a second look. I went into the army in 1955 and flew to Washington, D.C. I need to use the bathroom so I saw a men’s room and went in. I was the only white person in there. I got a lot of sour looks. On my way out, I said, I had to go just like you did. I got a few smiles. But that was my first encounter with segregation. When I got to Virginia I was now wise to segregation and went where I was supposed to do. But there was no segregation in the military. All colors used the same bathrooms. Later on I worked at a Sears store in Newport News. The lunch counters were segregated. But the food was all fixed by black people. To me it did not matter which side I ate on it was the same food fixed by the same black people. If the white side was crowded so I went into the black section. I sat down and got a lot of dirty looks from both sides. That made me sick so I then made it a deliberate effort to sit on the black side. Pretty soon I got to know a few of the black people and conversed with them.They were just people. I also used to go across the James River because Surry County was known for its chicken, great hams and watermelon. I used to sit and talk with the black people who were farmers and nothing more. They introduced me to boiled peanuts. I loved them. I got along fine with these folks for a couple of years before I left Virginia. What in the world was the difference? They were no different than farmers in Idaho. I have always maintained a relationship with any black people around me. I live in a senior housing building in Boise. There are Africans on my floor and elsewhere in the building. I get along with them just fine except they do not speak English. No matter, I have fun with them and we get along good. They enjoy my company. Some whites do not like that but I could care less. They are just people. They are senior citizens just like I am.

            So, now you know were I come from concerning people- All people. I am criticised for having Muslim friends. I am mindful of Muslims and I follow the Quran quite well. I do not accept the Quran or the religion. That does not mean I do not like the people. The Bible calls for us to like people with no exceptions. What I do disagree on is behavior. I am locked into Christian behavior by spiritual birth. But again, people are people, period. So are you.

          • AKLady

            The impression that was left upon me was people being mistreated, their lives put at risk. Working in 90 – 100F heat, in long sleeves, under full sunlight, without access to adequate fluids … is torture, not punishment.
            Deaths in Southern prisons were quite common in those days. They numbers are growing steadily under the private prisons we now have.
            Interestingly, those chain gangs consisted mostly of white males.

          • AKLady

            Saint Reagan closed the mental hospitals. Our “punishment” culture is deeply ingrained in our society. There has been change in my lifetime — it has become worse, much worse. Prisons are now big business. Probably one of our worst mistakes. Where there is profit to be made with incarceration, there is no motivation to heal or change the system.

          • AKLady,

            What we have now are not hospitals but a place for law enforcement to take erratic people for evaluation. We have two mental facilities yet. But we had a private run prison for awhile that turned out to be just what you said in this email. It was closed down. I follow sources including PBS and find no real success in mental health yet to the point of curable relief form any sort of mental illness. We still have a long way to go yet, I’m afraid. Even helping people with mild mental deficiencies. It is disappointing.

          • AKLady

            Medicine is still an art, not entirely a science.
            The mind and its functions are still unchartered territory, as to say. The brain can be studied as can any other organ. The mind is far more eleusive.
            .
            Reagan did not believe there was such a thing as “mental illness”. Even in 2017, there are still many people who think like him — just an excuse to get away with crime and bad behavior.

          • AJKLady,

            Some members of my family have an anxiety disorder. It is very troublesome and concerns me a lot. All any medical person including a psychiatrist can do is put someone on pills. If they do not remain on the pills they get anxiety attacks again. and even with the medications they do have mild episodes. Yet nothing can be done because even surgeons have no idea what to do. I have conversed this with a psychiatrist and a neurosurgeon but no success. No one knows yet what causes it. One niece is very worrisome because she goes into a rage even when she is on medication.

          • AKLady

            It is painful when it strikes home.
            Our son was severely ADHD, remains so in adulthood.
            He also was extremely intelligent.
            The ADHD stigmatized him. He was labeled as a discipline problem by teachers. As a result of that label, he was not allowed to participate In the gifted program..

          • AKLady,

            You just told me something that has also affected my life. I lost a son at age 21. Those kinds of incidents are not only difficult to live with but affect us for the rest of our lives. In my case, it made me appreciate life and people a whole lot more. I understand you better than many who have been negative toward you. You have my sincere respect.

          • AKLady

            Thank you.
            I provide non-attorney, legal advocacy for the disabled.
            For many years, I also represented injured employees at the agency level.
            Anyone who works with those who are unfairly judged and insulted by society is provided a excellent education.

          • AKLady,

            Good for you!

          • AKLady

            Thank you.

            It began with my being injured and cheated by the employer’s insurance company. I fought the claim for seven years, taking the case all the way to the Alaska Supreme Court. . Yes, I won. I made law. The case is in the Alaska Law books. It is cited for both what I did right, and what I did wrong.

            A top person in the state agency asked me to represent others. Attorney, like all of us, must make a living. Certainly, they have an obligation to give back to the community. However, there is just so much non-billable time they can afford to give away.
            In Alaska, at the agency level, anyone can be named as a representative. If you choose a non-attorney, you do so at your own peril 😉 Brag: I represented almost 200 claimants, lost two cases, had one over-turned on appeal.

          • AKLady,

            Your record is amazing. Way to go! I know from your posts that you are well educated.

          • AKLady

            Thank you.
            However, I don’t see anything amazing about it.
            I simply turned my hardship into an advantage for others. I obtained law education the hard way. It would have been a huge waste not to use it to help others.

          • AKLady,

            That’s how we get things done in this country. I am in limbo much of the off season when the legislature is not i session but I do work with a Republican and a two Democrats on education and transportation.

        • AKLady2015

          Suggest you read the laws.
          They are posted on your state’s web site.

          • Volarekathy99

            Texas allows all children, illegal or not, to attend all the public schools. The school district where I live hires bilingual people to help the illegals get their children registered, because the parents usually speak Spanish and can’t speak any English. Also, an illegal college-aged student can get the in-state tuition rate to go to college in Texas, as long as they have a high school diploma from anywhere in the world.

            I can explain that in one short sentence. It sucks.

      • Lucinda Schaefer

        Actually they do receive benefits when they send their children to school here in the U.S. who qualify for free breakfast and lunch and then utilize taxpayer dollars for ESL and SPED dollars.

        • AKLady2015

          Tt is the citizen child who is receiving benefits.

          • Lucinda Schaefer

            No, all children, illegally or legally here are allowed to attend and participate in all benefits at the school.

          • Volarekathy99

            Another illiterate, right-wing, sewer mouth.

            They knew exactly what it would buy at the store.
            I guess you failed to teach your children.

          • pevans1

            Don’t have any…. Good thing too! Fully one half of them would have gotten the dreaded Family Cancer and probably died from it… Like many in my Family.

          • Volarekathy99

            I don’t approve of his language, but he’s right about who’s receiving the welfare money.

          • AKLady2015

            Suggest you actually look at the eligibility requirements.
            Illegals do not qualify.
            Legal immigrants must be in the U.S five years before they qualify.

            Federal law is the same in all 50 states.

          • AKLady2015

          • Cat Woman

            And how does welfare pay rent for a baby without providing for the whole family? How does a baby receive food stamps without providing for the whole family? Same goes for all the benefits.

          • AKLady2015

            Maybe you should look up the law.
            A minor child cannot sponsor their parents.

          • June Burgess

            you are being obtuse

          • Cat Woman

            Correct, an anchor baby can not sponsor the parents, the parents apply for benefits for the child. In receiving those benefits IN THE NAME OF THE CHILD, naturally it supports the parent also.

          • Volarekathy99

            No, you are wrong, because in Texas, all the children are allowed to attend public schools, even if they are here illegally with their families. ESL and bilingual classes are offered to them. The state has to find bilingual teachers to teach them. I know! I’ve seen it in the school district I live in!

        When Obama was president, the illegals received all kinds of freebies the moment they crossed over: food stamps, subsidized housing, even FREE CELL PHONES! There was a catch and release program. Sometimes it was catch and take them to the destination they wanted/ give them a bus ticket where they wanted to go, never to appear for their court hearing. Some of this has changed under Trump. Judges have been brought down to the border so that the illegals can have their hearing soon after they cross. Trump has also spoken of not giving illegals freebies until they have been here for 5 years. I hope he follows through on it! They are costing us a fortune. Many of them can’t support themselves, and we are already nearly $20 trillion in debt! We can’t afford them!

        • Blessed & Highly Favored

          Volarekathy99. Let’s be fair. What about all the Americans who have never paid a cent into this country. They are being paid thousands of dollars by the government. They use that money to buy drugs. They sell benefit cards cheap to buy the drugs. All of these need to be addressed.
          God COMMANDS us to help the poor WHO ARE IN NEED, but not to support those who CAN WORK and will NOT WORK because the government is stretching a hand. Let’s cover the whole subject. Some are getting more food stamp money than they need. Address that also.

          • Grumpy

            Ok Blessed, maybe you were born with the silver spoon in your mouth, I was not, yes I got help from my parents way back when it was possible. I have had to scrape and work hard to give my family what it NEEDS, not so much what it wants. I pay my taxes and get little in return. So why should I help those who are taking away from my family?? You can take you silver spoon and shove it.

          • Blessed & Highly Favored

            May be you do not know my background. Being of Caribbean origin I had very little help from my parents but was taught, if I needed something do not depend on any one not even the government. I was not born with a golden spoon BUT by the grace of God I am what I am and have now reached to the point where I can now help others in need. I am multi-skilled and worked very hard, sometimes night and day but never coveted anyone’s wealth and never depended on the government for anything. I pity those who are less fortunate and may have through no fault of theirs found themselves in deep waters, as long as they are willing to work and better their situation and are willing to learn to fish rather than sitting around expecting fish. I can tell you that much, the contributions made by a majority of the undocumented immigrants far outweigh the lazy ones. I believe that each situation must be dealt with based on its own merit. There are people who DO NEED HELP. God has given to all of us as human being something called self preservation. Let’s look for the lazy ones irrespective of their status and teach them the Bible way. If a man CAN WORK and WILL NOT WORK he should not eat. The treasury would save billions if that principle was applied regardless of status. Do not castigate a sect and leave the others untouched. What God said to one He says to all.
            Be blessed!

          • Grumpy

            Not sure what those contributions may be, but I at least I can side with your last statement about the lazy ones should not eat. I will go one better and say if the only reason you are here illegally is to get away from your life of crime do not expect us to allow you to continue that life here.

          • Blessed & Highly Favored

            Don’t allow any criminals in and when found, get them out. However there are people who are bleeding the government, making demands on the system not having made any contributions and think that the government owes them money. They use drugs every day, have expensive cars, (0FC0RSE NOT REGISTERED UNDER THEIR NAMES) I-phones, costly jewelries, pieces of furniture that are outrageous in price, etc. Very little is said about that if any. Everyone seem to be concerned about undocumented immigrants. There are many undocumented immigrant Christians who have and are still molding our children’s lives and making them productive citizens of this great country of which I am proud, teaching them Biblical morals .I am sure you know of at least one. Do not throw out the baby with the tub. I do not think it is in good taste to group every one as criminals. Every country/island has its good and evil nuts, even this beautiful country of ours. I have travelled extensively never have I seen natives of any other country take advantage of the benevolence of a government as this country. The Bible supports helping the poor, BUT they must to go to the field to glean if they can. Take a good look at our big cities. We have not taught our children about littering. Our trains ,sidewalks, parks are in a mess. Last Saturday I went to the Mets verses Dodges baseball game and was appalled at the state of the stadium when the game was over. It happens at every public event. This much I know my Caribbean heritage taught US that such behavior is not permitted, documented or undocumented. Come on Let’s balance the scale people. Undocumented immigrants are not as evil as they are being portrayed. Are there bad ones? YES! But this I know, an honest survey will show that greater majority are law abiding people who come here with good intentions and are willing to give an honest days work for and honest days pay.

      • Grumpy

        .. ok, gloves off; you are just to stupid to understand that we should not have to care for some other country’s illegal cast offs. They do not need to be here, I would rather pay $2 for a head of lettuce than pay more in health care taxes to sustain illegals that have no right to be here. And when they are tossed out or shot in desperation by those who feel the only way to help the situation that you are tossed and or shot along with them. If this situation is not taken care of soon that is what you will face along with them.

      Illegals do not qualify for any form of welfare.
      Health care is provided for the poor to protect you, and people as foolish as you are.

      • Volarekathy99

        It’s kind of interesting that illegals get free health care at the county hospital which we pay for, but we know American citizens who didn’t have health insurance and who showed up for health care there, and they were ignored or in essence turned away, because they were never waited on, while illegals who arrived after them were taken care of. Illegals get all kinds of welfare. It’s one of the reasons they come up here.

        • AKLady2015

          Oh, yes. the stories …
          Everyone has heard them.
          .
          Medical triage is based on severity of illness, not who was first, or who has waited longest. Medical triage is also based on whether or not the illness in communicable.
          .
          Get an education.

          • Grumpy

            Ah so the illegals have communicable diseases and WE DON’T???? Wow, just one more reason to get rid of these disease infested individuals now.

            You got this one right.

          • AKLady

            Zika is most frequently found in the Miami-Dade, Florida area. Its origin is Africa, not South and Central America.

            Ebola is also native to Africa, not our Southern neighbors.

            Dengue become a global problem following the Second World War and is common in more than 110 countries

            All three are viral diseases transmitted by mosquitos, not human contact.

        • Edward

          But when the big war starts every damn one of you will run back to mexico other than fight for the country you came here to enjoy what we built and fought for. But you will not do nothing to fix your country cause that would mean you would have to fight there. Your just a dam freeloader

          • Volarekathy99

            I suppose you are referring to the illegals. I am not an illegal. I am an American citizen. I was born here, as were my parents, grandparents, and back many generations. Many of my ancestors came here in the 1600s.

          • Volarekathy99

            Why are you calling me that? I’m talking about illegal aliens! I’m an American citizen. Did you really read what I wrote?

        • Marie Saqueton

          County hospitals do that because they can ignore the White folks who are poor but scared stiff to ignore black or brown folks for fear of discrimination lawsuits. I know because my brother used to be a doctor in one of them.

          • Volarekathy99

            It’s not fair what they to do white folks. If they are poor and don’t have insurance, they deserve to be cared for, too! They need to go to a first come, first served basis as a general rule. I’m not saying ignore emergencies which are life-threatening, but people in waiting rooms can see who got there first and who didn’t.

      • Volarekathy99

        I don’t know about large corporations, but small corporations pay huge taxes!

        • Marie Saqueton

          Large corporations of course pays more commensurate to their gross.

      • Grumpy

        …and you feel safer having healthy terrorists and tax burdening illegals. We want them gone so we do not have to pay for them or keep them healthy. I cannot get the health care I need to keep myself healthy, I keep being told the illegals are costing to much to care for so they cannot take care of a tax payer and insurance payer like me. Tell me, do you see a problem here at all??

        • AKLady2015

          Suggest you read the 5th and 14th Amendments.

      I guess those of yesteryear should not have allowed your fore-parents to come here either. I am glad that you love your country, which is great. Please remember the same reason your fore-parents came here is the same reason others are coming. I know of people who for some unknown reason had fallen into hardship and depended on the government for a short period of time, BUT because of their resilience rebounded and NOW, they are flying high and have invaluable contributions to this country. I am sure you know of others also.

      • ARJAY

        So you’re saying Linda barker’s ancestors came here ILLEGALLY! You this HOW?

        There is a HUGE difference between LEGAL and ILLEGAL!!

      • Marie Saqueton

        The problem here is the misconception of the rights of ILLEGALS AND LEGAL IMMIGRANTS. DEMOCRATS ALWAYS LUMPS THE TWO TOGETHER AS “IMMIGRANTS” AND THAT IS WRONG. COMMON USAGE DOES NOT MAKE A WRONG RIGHT. I want to be emphatic that is why I wrote in bold fonts. We have to understand that ILLEGALS, as the word implies are VIOLATORS of our LAWS and LEGAL IMMIGRANTS came here in accordance to our LAWS. Democrats love all the illegals because that is their electoral base to win elections. Like this past election, the ongoing audit came up with more than FIVE MILLION ILLEGALS voted for HIllary, dead people and felons, and they are not even done yet with the whole country. That must be one of the reasons that Seth Rich was murdered, the DNC worker who found out and was ready to report to the FBI. Too many scandals, deaths and corruption follows the DNC and that will lead to their demise as a party. What the DEmocs are doing is so sad for America.

        • Phillip Wyllis

          I can tell you this much. Most of them are much more industrious than you are.  Without government handouts and Section 8 housing allowance they became entrepreneurs. They work hard, own homes, (some of them HUGE HOMES) own businesses, have retirement plans. You sure do not sound like a NATIVE INDIAN AMERICAN. I guess all of us will have  to go back to our country of origin and leave America for the Indians, based on your statement. Most of them who have become citizens are Americans by choice. You are an American by ACCICENT. God blesses hard work, which is the pride of man rather than a lazy person who depends for hand outs to survive. Let’s get our acts together emulate their entrepreneurial spirit, then we will see the hand of God bless us as HE HAS BLESSED THEM. America is a land of opportunities let’s go for it. Our motto should be, DO NOT ASK WHAT WE CAN GET FROM AMERICA BUT WHAT WE CAN GIVE TO AMERICA. THEN OUR NATION WILL BE A BETTER PLACE. God bless you! And remember, Jesus LOVES you.

            You’re right, pevans1. Long before he was my best friend, my best friend moved to this state after military service and was having a hard time finding a job during a recession. He applied and was denied any welfare, while he watched many undeserving people pull up in nice cars and pick up their checks. He is white and that was the only reason he couldn’t get help, he surmised. Now he’s studied computer software and makes $80k/yr and could make a lot more if he moved to the big cities.

          • Volarekathy99

            Christians and Jews do not worship the same God as Muslims. Christians & Jews worship the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Christians also worship Jesus, the one and only Son of God. Some Jews are Jewish Christians and also recognize Jesus as the Messiah, who will come again. Muslims worship Satan, whom they call Allah, who is derived from a moon-god cult. Muslims say God has no son. I hope you have seen the barbaric ways Muslims treat, or can treat women, if they want to. Islam is a cult and political movement seeking to take over the whole world, no matter how long it takes, and they are willing to kill those who don’t convert. I have met some friendly Muslims, but who knows if they will change, or if their children will grow up to be terrorists? There’s no way to know.

        • Volarekathy99

          The telephone service is “Lifeline.”
          It is not “free” for anyone.
          Cell phones were included because many recipients are homeless.
          The purpose is exactly what the name implies.
          The next house it prevents from burning to the ground, may be yours.
          The next accident victims life it saves may be yours
          It is paid for by telephone users, not “taxpayers.”

          Oh, and by the way, Lifeline is one of Saint Reagan’s gifts.
          It was targeted at homeless veterans.

          • Volarekathy99

            Why should my tax dollars have to pay for things for ILLEGALS?! Everybody I know pays his/her own way. We pay for our own cell phones & everything else. Cell phones have not always existed. No one has a “right” to a cell phone — or even a “right” to a land line. Our govt is $20 trillion in debt! When does this ridiculous mindset end? Even legal immigrants used to have a sponsor or show that they could support themselves.

          • AKLady

            Your income axes do not pay for illegals.

            However, your grocery bill will pay hugely when they have been deported. Again. the Lifeline program was started by Saint Reagan.

            It has to do with public safety and access to emergency services. I’m not sure when the “ridiculous mindset”. such as yours will ever end.

            Legal immigrants still require a sponsor. You would know that if you bothered t look up facts. It takes just minutes — you have an Internet connection.

          • Volarekathy99

            My income taxes do so pay for the illegals! Where else do you think our government gets the money to do so? You never make any sense anyway. You just want to come out against anyone who is a conservative with whatever you can come up with.
            Troll.

          • AKLady

            Childish name calling, so impressive.
            Ignorance of facts, so impressive.
            Are you one of those conservative, right-wing school dropouts?

          • Volarekathy99

            You are the name caller and I have a college education, but I doubt seriously that you do!

          • AKLady

            Why do you lie?

          • Volarekathy99

            Homeless veterans are not the same as illegals! And yes, my taxpayer dollars DO pay for illegals receiving cell phones. The government largesse comes from our taxes! If we would stop handing out all these freebies, maybe we wouldn’t have so many illegals coming here! What house are they living in anyway, if they are illegal, unless it’s subsidized by the US government? You can talk about the eligibility all you want. News programs have been showing what they were doing at the border.

            Moreover, I don’t like everything Reagan did, as he started shipping manufacturing jobs out of the country at the speed of light.

            I guess you like paying lots of taxes and having people come in who don’t always assimilate and cost American citizens a lot of money.

          • AKLady

            Lifeline is not paid for by your federal income tax.
            It is paid for by telephone users. Lifeline pays for basic telephone service, nothing more.

          • Volarekathy99

            Hmm, that’s still my taxes… whether they are taxes on my phone, my property, my county hospital taxes (where they often don’t take care of white people), and the list goes on.

            I guess you are loaded with money and don’t care how much money you pay in taxes. Just go give it all away – it will make you happy and then you can go live on the dole.

          • AKLady

            Lifeline is not a tax.
            Possibly, you would prefer a fire spread to your house?
            Possibly, you would prefer someone die,
            unable to call for help?
            Possibly, you would prefer someone not report a thief breaking into your home?
            .
            I am very happy to provide people with the ability to obtain emergency assistance. I suspect you claim to be a Christian, and probably go to church on Sunday.

          • AKLady

            You are the one who wants to take Lifeline away from people.

    I founded and own a manufacturing company 11 years ago, and I now have over 200 employees. We make great products for other businesses, companies and governments all over the US. Every one of our employees is legal, but most come from Mexico and central America. They work their butts off, have an amazing work ethic, are honest and disciplined. I have tried to hire many white millennials from “good” white families with HS educations, and none of them are worth a s**t. They spend all day on their cell phones, call in sick. and have no pride of workmanship – I usually fire them in 2 or 3 weeks for poor performance. They think they are entitled, shoot their mouths off on subjects they know nothing about. and want to be the boss!! I am a white Caucasian from a middle class family, and my ancestors have been here since 1650, and I learned to work hard since I was 8 yrs old in a family business, keep my mouth shut, and respect authority, and learn from my elders. I got scholarships and worked my way through the best colleges and graduate schools in the US to get where I am today The Trumpies that are complaining they can’t find jobs that pay well have only themselves to blame; laziness, ignorance and stupidity are recipes for failure in today’s economy.

    • Lisa

      How much do you pay?

    • ProudPatriot

      I’m a white millennial. I worked my a$$ off in high school and college. Received an engineering degree. And guess what. I’m not entitled, I show up to work every day. I perform good work for a good wage. I make a fine living. I have ZERO problems with legal immigration. This country was founded by immigrants. So please, don’t lump all millennials into the same pile. Just like all immigrants shouldn’t be. The problem here is ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION. I’m glad that you employ only those who are here legally. There are many employers who don’t. That is the issue. If they aren’t a legal citizen, they should not receive ANY government or tax payer funded assistance. They shouldn’t even be allowed to stay here. Period.

      • johnh

        And their children born here should not be given USA citizenship. They should be a citizen of the country their parents came from.

    • David Silbernagel

      I hope you are not one of those bossiness owners who doesn’t pay a fair wage for the hard work that is done. Too many bossiness want our politicians to bring them in for the cheap labor and then because they do not pay a fair wage they end up being subsidized by the rest of us for medical, food stamps, and housing. They usually have large families so they end up paying no taxes and put a big drain on our school systems all because employers want cheap labor

    • omikehawk

    • JoeW

      What you describe are not the Trump supporters. The people in the crowd you describe is the product of the radical leftist public educational system (driven by the radical teachers’ unions) and colleges (where 90% of the professors are either communists, anarchists or socialists), coming from leftist families. are spoiled rotten with high level of narcissism and entitlement and have no work ethic. I agree with you that most of the radical leftist millennials, particularly in New York, California, Massachusetts, Illinois and the other deep blue states can not be depended on to be hired to provide solid work performance.

  • Lynn S.Pilcher

    Legal and Illegal aliens have only one purpose and that is to vote for the Democratic Agenda.
    The Democrats do not care if it is cost effective, they just want warm bodies who vote for whatever they are told. The Democrats only want one party in the United States and with the help of Liberal Republicans they are fighting back against the Trump Wave. They do not fear American Voters, because we will do what we are told.

    • Kmat

      Illegal Aliens, yes they vote for the Democrat Agenda. But not all Legal Immigrants, I know many that are afraid the US will become the Socialist Nation they left. Those that immigrant legally are usually looking for a better life, are willing to work for it and assimilate into Society.

If you are born in England you are not an English citizen, you have to be born to English citizens, not just pop out in England, or most other countries have the same policy.

      • juneausr

        The real problem is people won’t work together to get rid of the long term congressional sponges. If a few were voted out due to their voting record maybe the rest would get the message. We the people are fighting each other instead of going after the idiots in congress.

        • TooHotForU

          I agree with you that these rhinos need to be voted out, but just look at McCain, been there 30 years as a republican yet supports the demoncrats every time, and is trying to get rid of President Trump. Yet people keep voting him in when he constantly votes against items that would help Arizona and is a hawk for illegals.

  • Stan Stowe

    It does not matter if you’re legal or illegal, if you can not ascimulate to the life style and living standard offered in some reasonable time, then perhaps you may wish to return to country of origin. Lets start with the education system! There are school districts that have over whelming burden of education to illegals. Example is that some classes have multi languages in many different dialects to over come for education. It slows down the education for American born people in class, and the resources of cost are redistributed to bring all children to relative equal levels. So the more brilliant students have to learn at a pace not beneficial to them. That is why many people chose to send their kids to private schools, because it is important that they get educated without that burden from some public schools. Now I do not blame all public schools, as they are run for and by unions and managed by people that come from schools boards that have little ability to change the way schools operate. Most schools are very weak on the numbers of children that can graduate with the highest cost of education per child in the world. Maybe this started as great idea for people of all origin to be educated, and maybe many children become great citizens over time, but the over whelming numbers that were coming to America has change ability of schools to keep up. California is great example of failed state! The state is bankrupt, and can never tax enough to get out of debt. It is 6 leading economy in the world, and yet it is broke. EXPLAIN WHY? DEMOCRATS.
    Lets say California wants to become its own country! It would have a national debt equivalent to probably half of its GDP. The other half would be constant strain to maintain functioning government services beyond the next year. The number of Government workers would out number civilian workers and paid higher wages. So where would California get the money for massive debt? The illegals would flood the state and more would follow across Mexican border by the millions. How would they survive? California seems to think it can print a new money and then tax at maybe a 50% percent level forever. Then again, the more educated people would leave because they find that they would be required to support even more of the unwilling and under educated to point of every bodies money would be spread evenly across the board for those not willing or able to work. California would be another 3rd world country that can not support its citizens and then they would want free money from 40 other states. The reason I say that because California is not the only failing state in America. California maybe would take all corporate taxes to levels of 75%, and Google, Apple would move to other states or country. Oh that is right, Apple has already moved its corporate head quarters to another country, like so many wealthy countries.
    The point made is that yes illegals do create a huge burden on society, but that does not mean that they will remain a burden, but the numbers speak for themselves. Once they learn that a free handout is available, and easy, they never want to give up that free stuff.

  • phxgeo

    It is totally understandable that the economy is larger now and job growth has not kept up with the economic growth. This false analysis is when you get from people like Bier who have an answer and they design a question to meet that answer rather the normal other way around. Look at the automobile industry where automation has decreased the number of people it takes to make 1 car. This is going on in many other industries. The need for unskilled or low skilled workers is falling rapidly. Allowing more in will mean they will be living on the backs of taxpayers because there are not enough jobs to employ them. These so called “brain trusts” like Cato Institute are promoting a strategy of destroying this Country. They need to be stopped, however, with a corrupt media and Congress it will be hard to get them squared away. We have to keep electing successful business people like President Trump to places like Congress.

    • seersuckerandapanama

      Cato’s abstractionist thinking dovetails with the more openly self-seeking motivation of the US Chamber of Commerce.

  • Leon Barber

    Cannot understand why there are any illegal immigrants in the USA. It is easy and cheap to seal the borders with armed troops, and then start arresting every illegal in the USA and deport them. Any sanctuary city interfering with arresting illegals will be put under military control until all illegals have been deported. Maybe 6 months and deportation would be complete.

    I don’t think that any illegal has the right to even be on our welfare, and housing and food stamps, to me this is so wrong for we the American people and our Country, if you go their countries you don’t get anything but jail, so why are we giving anything to people that break the law, this is really against our laws .

  • Flyby

    I go with the 11,000 to deport them, over the most likely under estimated 65,000 it costs to feed,house, and pay their medical costs any day.

  • No matter what proof one can provide, the talking heads and liberal elites will never accept the truth. They will always spout lies and continue to push a wide open immigration policy to ensure that the left can control the government and it follows that the more illegal immigrants they let into this country, the longer they will stay in power through buying these illegals votes through welfare benefits.

  • temporary guest

    The fact that “Illegals Take More from Government than They Pay” would be news only to people just now pulling their heads out of the sand … or wherever else they’ve had their heads tucked.

    American citizens have to jump through numerous, onerous, bureaucratic red tape to get ANY benefits that WE pay for and then 9 times out of 10 CAN’T get them, but all an illegal has to do is say they are illegal and they hand them EVERYTHING that WE PAID FOR and can’t get.
    I even had to produce my certified birth certificate at age 67 to get my drivers license RENEWED. What the HE11 is with that? I had to do it to get my license commercial license a few years ago, but to RENEW it, that’s ludicrous. Did I become an unborn natural citizen since I got my license? HOW STUPID. And CaliforniMexico GIVES commercial licenses to ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS.

  • Phillip Wyllis

    The author of this document may not have had a conversation with approximately 75% of undocumented immigrants. To prove my point, give the average American the citizenship test (which by the way I’ve done ever so often) a large number of them would fail. A great percentage of Americans know three islands in the Caribbean, Jamaica, Barbados and Trinidad. Few know of Antigua and Grenada. Most undocumented immigrants are either bi-lingua, tri-lingual and some may be able to speak even more than three languages.

    A large number of the undocumented immigrants who are here are people of excellent carriers just waiting for the opportunity to display their skills.

    To state that the main reason illegal immigrants take more in government assistance than they pay in taxes is their level of education could not be mire inaccurate.

    • JWB

      Sir, calling anyone whom has entered this country illegally, i.e. has not obtained the proper documentation, “undocumented immigrants” is, frankly, untruthful, regardless of their “good intentions”, “hidden talents” or potential value to the United States.

It all began with LBJ and his steal the tax payers money through inflated taxes and give it to layabouts in the form of welfare and food stamps to build a voter base. Now the Left wants to let in as many low income foreign nationals as they can to put on welfare programs to increase their voter base. The treasonous low life globalists need to be voted out of office and their foreigner voter base run out of the country. These left wing aristocrats are poster children for term limits. We need term limits on Congress and they should only meet 3 months out of the year make sure the government bills are paid and the next years budget passed. I would also cut their salaries and benefits by 66%. Then they could go get a real job. I’m sure they can handle saying “Do you want fries with that order.”

    This article doesn’t take into account all of the work-related injuries that occur to these untrained immigrants. The cost of caring for them for the rest of their lives do to their injuries is enormous. I work for an office that deals with Injured Workers most of whom are now illegal immigrants. Most of these illegal immigrants don’t even have a third grade education. They start in the United States as field workers they move up to restaurants and then into Construction where they are almost always injured. Many of whom don’t even make it into construction before they’re injured.

  • Marie Saqueton

    I think immigration preference must first be given to those who can contribute to the economic advancement of our country and to those whose services are much needed, like doctors, nurses, engineers, scientists etc. but to open it up to more uneducated, welfare recipients is to sabotage the growth and economic survival of this country.Demoncrats like this unproductive people for their votes because they can be controlled. Educated people pay more taxes, contribute more to the advancement and enhancement of our social ecology and are more peaceful and law abiding. We have enough welfare folks in this country, and few working folks to support them as it is now.

    Majority of Trump supporters are the well informed, educated Americans who are tired of paying very high taxes for the welfare recipients that the Demoncrats kept letting in this country to vote for them.. Trump supporters are the conservative, intelligent, hard working Americans who are aware of where the unsustainable debt of $23,TRILLION that Obama amassed will be a burden to many generations. Hillary’s supporters were found to be illegals, dead people and felons in the current ongoing audit of the government. The Election Auditing Commission is not even done with the whole country yet they already found more than FIVE MILLION ILLEGAL VOTERS, voted for Hillary.

    America became the Greatest Nation on Earth due to Immigrants that brought skills and a work ethic that led to inventions and innovations such as Henry Ford’s “assembly line”. The influx of unskilled and un-educated that become a drain rather than an asset is not good for the Nation as a whole. A coursey look at Our Social Security System reveals how that system has been abused by funding retirements of migrators that entered the Country late in life and have been allowed ( some never worked at all in America, others, very briefly ) to pick up monthly checks meant ( and paid for by ) for Citizens that worked and paid into the system , on average, for 50 Years—retiring at 65-67—-Welfare supported by stealing from Social Security was not a good idea—robbing Peter to pay Paul, so to speak.

    Sewer language.
    Childish insults.
    Religious bigotry.
    Lies
    ,
    Freedom of religion is the reason this country exists.
    Our first ally was a Muslim country — Morocco.
    Morocco is also America’s longest ally — 225 years.

    Oh, and by the way, the first casualty in the Revolution was not only a Muslim, but also an escaped slave. Crispus Attucks was the child of a Native American mother and an African, Muslim, enslaved father.
    .
    Oh, and your lies, ignroance and bigotry embarrass America. Nowhere in the Quran did God say to kill innocent unbelievers. Provide proof for your claim.

    Apparently, you cannot find a valid compliant, so you lie about Obama. You embarrass America every time you lie.

    Oh, and ignorant one, the Holy Bible commands both Jews and Christians to kill nonbelievers: The Bible says your are to kill unbelievers: Deuteronomy 13:6, Deuteronomy 13: 13, Deuteronomy 17:3, 2 Chronicles 15:13, Leviticus 20:27, Matthew 15:1-9, Romans 1:20-32, and Matthew 5:42-44.

    There is more, but that should educate you a bit better.

    • Richard Scott

      You need to look it up, STUPID, the Quran has a lot of verses where it says kill all infidels

      • AKLady

        Maybe you should increase your reading comprehension. My post clearly states “innocent infidels”.

        Maybe you should read the Holy Bible. Not only are there multiple commands to kill infidels, it does not discriminate between innocent and guilty. Here ius a sample: Deuteronomy 13:6, Deuteronomy 13: 13, Deuteronomy 17:3, 2 Chronicles 15:13, Leviticus 20:27, Matthew 15:1-9, Romans 1:20-32, and Matthew 5:42-44.

        There is more, but that should educate you a bit better.

        • Richard Scott

          Yes, it’s in the bible, but we don’t do that anymore, but the Muslims are still doing it, has there been a terrorist attack by Christians in the last 100 years

          • AKLady

            Maybe you should tell that to the Christians in the Central African Republic. They are murdering everyone who will not convert, You might want to tell that story to the American Christians that continue to murder doctors and bomb clinics.

            Oh, you need to better inform yourself. Here is a partial ist of American, currently active Christian terror groups: The Army of God, Eastern Lightening, The Church of the Almighty God, The Church of the Gospel’s Kingdom, The Lord’s Resistance Army, The National Liberation Front of Tripura, the Phineas Priesthood, The Concerned Christians, The Nationalist Socialist Council of Nagaland, Maronite Christian militias

          • Richard Scott

            I do see one of them is American made, Army of God, the other ones, are Chinese groups, not like the Muslims, we condemn these groups, did you see any high ranking Muslims condemn 911

          • AKLady

            Every group I listed are Christian terror groups, not Chinese, not Muslim.

            Yes, Richard, many Muslims condemned 9/11. Morocco is a Muslim County. It is our first ally, and our longest — 225 years.

            Are you aware that all but one of the 9/11 attackers were citizens of Saudi Arabia? The training camp that produced them is still open and churning out terrorists. It is located in Saudi Arabia. Who is funding terror? The House of Saud.

            Bush II attacked Iraq and Afghanistan. Yet, that is not where the enemy resided.
