Which our income would disqualify us for

I'm betting your school does not have a hotline to the IRS to verify such info and even if they did they would not use it. The more money they spend this year, the more they get the next.

I’m against slavery in any form. It is a moral thing.

Illegals make up 4.4% of the workforce according to the US Dept of Labor. They make about 2.2% of the GDP for America. The rest of GDP is done by the real backbone of the US economy which is the legal worker!

Also, if illegals payed more into the system than they took out, they wouldn't need the system.

Barbara is clueless (I know, we didnt need this piece to discover that). She conveniently forgets all the costs such as courts, prisons, educating their children, school lunches, WIC services and food for pregnant women, infants, and children, and translators.

Take the last item. If a hospital spends 150K a year on translators, that’s money it can’t spend elswhere. That the kind of money could probably buy valuable medical equipment. She is so wrong to take these tradeoffs so lightly.

"In case you don't know what immigrants do in this country, the Latinos have a word for it--trabajo. They've been mowing the lawns, cleaning the offices, hammering the nails and picking the tomatoes, not to mention all that dish-washing, diaper-changing, meat-packing and poultry-plucking."

What a bunch of crap. What about the car thieving, the break and entering (not the "into the country" crap this article leads off with) the rape of women, drug smuggling, murdering, latino gang violence, prostitution rings, defrauding government social programs, defrauding or just plain theft of medical treatment, identity theft,-and the list goes on and on,- 99% of these criminals commit, not to mention tax evasion, and voting illegaly for idiotic sympathizers that they KNOW are stupid clueless suckers.

We owe them alright, we owe them a brief moment to stand before a judge, who will tell them the crimes they have committed, and explain to them why they will never be alowed to enter this country again. Then we owe them a paper towel to wipe the ink off their fingers after they are fingerprinted and photographed. We owe them a bottle of water to drink after we drop them off at the SOUTHERNMOST MEXICAN BORDER which will ensure they don't walk back across the USA/Mexican border the next day.

I personally know of a number of situations that rag heads have come into our country and received a $50,000 check from Uncle Sam and a wet kiss just to give them hands-up to get a good start. This is, of course, tax free and will probably never be paid back to the government. But, hell, that’s okay. We, as citizens, in the country, could and will never get such a helping hand.
Can anyone else give me their opinion about this??

If true, it’s outrageous. How did they get it, do you know?

"Anyone caught re-entering the United States will do one year in detention (work gang) and then returned to Mexico, again."

Maybe that will satify the thirst for cheap labor of these "companies" who are unwilling to pay a fair wage. Quite frankly I could care less if those type of "employers" (they can hardly be called that) go out of business. Perhaps houses will be able to withstand a stong wind if they atre no longer built by cheap unskilled and unqualified labor. Fat liberals can cut their own grass, they need the excersize anyways.

In a different time, Barbara Ehrenreich would have sung the praises of slavery. All those happy blacks working in the fields, singing, and sooooooo happy.

Yep! Say it again. She is filled with her "soft" bigotry. Typical leftist writer, She never worked a real job in her life. She's blessed to live one long party.

I don’t have any idea how they got it. But, I talked to truck drivers of Middle East descent and many of them told me they did it. If only one person had told me this, I would have said they were lying. Since multiple people have told me, it must be true.
