Chain migration, anchor babies, amnesty, and not enforcing e-Verify is killing our culture.
They are breaking the law and are getting better treatment than our veterans.
If these illegals need medical care they would probably neglect veterans and let them die so they can spend money serving these people.
We killed our own culture off long before the aliens did. When we kicked God out of society and replaced Him with porn, booze, drugs, wealth envy, violent tv, abortion, welfare, and a host of other disturbing trends it was pretty much over.
Obama is a symptom not the cause, or even a cause of our demise.
When will the low-information people wake up? We are witnessing America be destroyed by our own elected reps. God bless America.
