The gang of eight and all the other politicians who desire to make the shadowy illegal aliens in America instantly legal keep assuring us that once these folks are out of the shadows they will not receive welfare. In case you live in a cave someplace (which is silly because you would not be reading this) welfare is paid for with tax dollars. People work hard for their money and then some of it is extorted from them by government who then hands it over to those who do not work, cannot work, or are not earning much money.
Welfare was designed to be a social safety net but it has become a wealth redistribution scheme run by the government to keep people dependent on the politicians. Vote for us and we will keep paying you with other people’s money.
There is proof that once illegals are given some sort of legal status they will get welfare. One big one is the Senators who have proclaimed that they will get the money. That pretty much indicates there is no push to ensure it does not happen.
Another good indication is that billions of dollars in taxpayer money is spent on welfare that goes to people who should not get it. People in prison are getting checks. People who are dead continue to get checks that their families are undoubtedly spending. There are billions of dollars wasted in the welfare scheme.
Another strong indication that those newly legal people will get our tax dollars is the fact that many of them are getting our tax dollars as ILLEGALS.
A woman in Florida who is in this country illegally and has been for at least 20 years is drawing $240 a month in food stamps and $700 a month in Social Security and she has been getting this money for 20 years. She is 50 years old so that means we have been supporting her since she was 30.
The amount of money she gets and whether or not she can live on it is not material to the issue. The real issue is that she is here illegally and is receiving welfare money.
How in the name of all that is holy can our government claim those illegals it deems to be legal will not get welfare money when it cannot stop the illegals from getting it? This woman is but one example that is surely repeated all across the nation. The linked article indicates that Florida has a lot of food stamp recruiters and they have a goal; to increase federal aid to Florida by a billion dollars a year.
These people are working to get folks on the welfare rolls whether they are lawfully eligible or not.
Our tax dollars are being wasted supporting people who squirt out a litter of children or bring in their families (this woman has 7 people to feed) while we work our butts off to make ends meet.
The members of Congress working on immigration reform say that tax dollars in the form of welfare will not be given to those newly legal people but we all know this is a lie.
We have a problem with illegals for two very basic facts. The first is we have an open border and we refuse to secure it. The second is we give illegals welfare. If we did not pay them our money to come here they would stay home.
It is time to tell Congress to drop all ideas of making these people legal. We need sweeping reform that includes purging all the welfare rolls of people who are here illegally. Couple this with e-verify and workplace enforcement and these people will eventually self deport.
Let’s solve the problem by making them go home rather than making them legal (thus rewarding them for their crime) and paying them to be here.
Enough is enough.
Never surrender, never submit.
It is no secret that Obama panders to the illegal community. He has enacted his version of the DREAM Act via Executive Order, he has ignored their presence in the country and he has sued a sovereign state to keep that state from enacting and enforcing immigration laws that are EXACTLY LIKE THE FEDERAL LAWS.
Obama does not look at illegals as being here in violation of the law. He looks at them as Democrat voters. They are no problem to him and his party because they are viewed as people who deserve a chance and, well, if they happen to vote Democrat that is all the better.
Obama has no issue with illegals being here because he can feel a kinship with them in that none of them have their papers.
Obama tells us not to worry and that these folks are no problem. According to a report from the House Judiciary Committee:
Those who could have been deported but were released later went on to commit the 19 murders, 3 attempted murders and 142 sex crimes, the Judiciary Committee said
Those crimes could have been prevented (like the murder of our Border Patrol Agent and hundreds of Mexicans by Fast and Furious could have been prevented) but Obama chose to ignore the law. Democrats are perfectly happy with the catch and release program and keeping illegals here. In fact, they are upset at programs that would deport those here illegally:
Many Democrats say it [Secure Communities program] casts its net too wide, which means illegal immigrants who have committed relatively minor offenses could be deported.
If they are here illegally then they committed a crime that is not relatively minor and they should be deported.
While Americans are subject to violent crimes committed by people Obama allows to stay here illegally he is protected from the violence by a large number of armed guards.
Never surrender, never submit.
…Through the Back Door…
Each year millions of illegals sneak into this country through the back door. They walk across the porous southern border because the federal government refuses to do its job. When the states try to do the job the feds won’t do, Democrat appointed judges apply social justice rather than legal justice and the illegals just keep coming.
There have been several amnesties over the years and each time one was granted the American people were promised that there would not be a need for another amnesty and that the border would be secured. After the first amnesty more illegals arrived here and waited. They were granted amnesty and now even more have arrived. The illegals keep showing up because they know they will eventually get amnesty.
The American public knows that the federal government will NOT secure the border. Republicans like illegals as cheap labor and Democrats like them as voters. The Democrats pursuit of illegals is nothing more than a Democrat voter registration drive.
And it has to stop.
But it won’t. In fact, we are likely to get an amnesty without any act of Congress whatsoever. This is because the Obama regime is looking at options that will grant a de facto amnesty without the need for the pesky legislative process.
The internal draft written by officials at U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services outlines ways the government could provide “relief” to illegal immigrants — including delaying deportation for some, perhaps indefinitely, or granting green cards to others — in the absence of legislation revamping the system. Yahoo News
This internal draft memo was made public by Senator Grassley of Iowa who stated that the memo confirms that the Obama regime is trying to do an end run around Congress and the legislative process.
The pro illegal immigrant groups are happy and state that this shows that someone is trying to fix the broken system.
Let me make this clear, the system is not broken. The way we enforce the existing laws is broken. We have an immigration system that has clearly defined methods to obtain a legal status in this country up to and including becoming a citizen. None of those methods involve allowing people to sneak into the country and then rewarding their criminal act with amnesty. No one can find that particular method in any law that is on the books.
The system is in place and it functions quite well when it is used properly (and enforced by the feds). People apply for a status (work visa, visitor visa, citizenship, etc) and they are evaluated. If there are no reasons they should be barred from entry then they are allowed in. If not then they are denied.
The broken part is the enforcement of our current laws. People who walk across the border without permission are invaders. They are breaking the law. There is no denying it. These people are lawbreakers and it does not matter why they did it, they are still lawbreakers.
I do not care if they need a better life, are not making it in their home country, their feet hurt, they need medical care, their Frosted Flakes got soggy, or any other excuse that might come up with for their presence here, THEY ARE LAW BREAKERS AND SHOULD NOT BE REWARDED.
But this is not how things are framed by Democrats who need more voters. They claim the system is broken. I would be happy to debate Obama or any other member of his regime on this issue because the system is not broken. The people who are not enforcing the law (and their judicial activists) are broken.
Obama knows that he will not get the amnesty he wants this session of Congress and he is pretty certain that he will not have the majority when the next Congress convenes in January 2011 so he is working on something now.
That something is backdoor amnesty and it is plain wrong.
The Executive Branch and its leader are also part of the system that is broken.
They refuse to do their jobs and for that we should hold them accountable.
Never surrender, never submit.
The number of illegals who are dying in the desert while entering the US illegally has risen this year, particularly in a region of Arizona where it has been particularly hot. Illegals who are trying to enter our country by breaking the law are being fried in the hot sun and are dying left and right. There are so many dead illegals that they are being stored in a refrigerated truck.
Personally, I don’t particularly care about illegals frying in the desert. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want these people to die and I have no desire for them to die but I also know that they are responsible for what is happening. They are breaking the law and dying in the process. I have as little concern for this as I do for a bank robber who falls off a ledge and dies while trying to break into a bank or a liquor store robber who gets shot and killed by the owner of the store.
I just do not particularly care that these people dropping dead as a result of illegal activity.
But I know there are plenty of bleeding hearts out here who will say that this is some kind of travesty and that we need immigration reform to help these people.
During the decades we have given blanket amnesties and they came with a promise to secure the border. The border is not secure and people can just walk right in (weather permitting). If the Congress had kept its word and built the wall on the southern border we would not be having all these deaths in the Arizona sun.
Congress, and now Barack Obama, are responsible for these deaths because they refuse to build a wall until they get immigration reform. They are giving hope of amnesty to a lot of people who are setting out on a dangerous trek where many of them die.
We need a wall to keep them out and to keep them alive.
But mostly to keep them out.

And it is not even in effect yet.
Hispanics are leaving Arizona in droves ahead of the new Immigration Law. There is no way to determine the exact numbers but schools are reporting that Hispanic students have stopped showing up as their parents have withdrawn them in order to move to a state where they will “feel more welcome.”
There is no way of knowing whether the people leaving are legal or illegal but it is fairly safe to say that the legal aliens are not worried about having to prove they are here legally because they can do just that. The most likely scenario is that those who are here illegally and are worried about being caught are leaving.
The linked article describes such people and it only makes sense.
The Arizona law is already working because those who are breaking the immigration law are leaving before they get caught. The purpose of any law is to control behavior and make sure people are doing what is right. Since the illegals are leaving the number of lawbreakers in Arizona is decreasing then the law is working. The law is controlling illegal behavior.
I suggest that those looking for a place where they are welcome concentrate on California. That state has many sanctuary cities that are happy to have illegals there.
If the federal government were doing its job then the illegal population would decrease dramatically just as it is in Arizona.
