They are citizens thru jus solis i.e., birthright citizenship. They are issued passports and have all the rights and privileges of any citizen of this country. Congress would have to pass a law to change it and if it fails to pass constitutional muster, we would have to pass a Constitutional amendment. Scholars differ on what would be needed to change the current practice that is part of US Code.
I would love to see the fraud stats re immigrants of all stripes.Has to be horrendous.
That looks similar to the study I read.
I was merciful enough not to post the whole thing, though.
Perhaps the entire welfare system needs to be revamped considering the fact that the so-called poor are not any poorer than the household I grew up in long ago in which nobody would have dreamed of expecting any sort of federal assistance.
If she doesn't have permission, she is stealing.
**RUB / RUB**
That's gonna leave a big mark.
I live in bear country.
Folks here learn quickly that if you allow bears to eat food intended for humans on your property, whether it’s fallen fruit or thrown away food scraps, not only will they press ever closer to your house, they will return next year with their cubs!
Don’t feed the fracking bears! Is that so hard to figure out?
Someone on FR (I forget who) suggested that the change came when the tobacco-producing states went Republican! Back in the Solid (Democrat) South days, tobacco company money went to Democrat politicians!
It’s petty theft though. Or is that pretty theft.
All the neighbor has to do is protect her connection.
I have an open connection and my next-door neighbor always used my bandwidth ... our computers were pretty close together. She laughed about it and so did I.
Believe me, she did enough for me so that I could spare her a little bandwidth.
A distorted reality which led him to chase a false cure for his cancer when a surgical cure could have save his life? It does bare some resemblance to the type of leadership we are getting from our current president, chasing false solutions to our economic woes. But then, I think Obama wants the US to die.
I didn’t post the entire study. You should read it. Can you provide the link to your study? I would be interested in reading it since I spend my time lobbying on the Hill and in Richmond on the immigration issue.
I wonder if Williams actually believes that crap he spews and perhaps wants to distance himself from the propaganda machine that is NBC (owned by GE, in bed with Obie). He's debuting a prime-time show this week. He hosted Today Friday, perhaps to plug his show, or maybe to further shift his image away from the 'spewer of lies" image on Nightly News.
You are correct, it is a full court press for Obama. I can't imagine how Williams sleeps at night. I give him more credit, so I hope he's losing debates with his producers who clearly have an agenda and instructions from the top floors of 30 Rock. Jeez....WAPO "journalists" appearing as experts, lying ,covering, omitting to help Obie.
Bears don’t vote.
I thank my lucky stars that there IS a solution to our economic problems. Perry seems almost as strong on this as Newt, and suspect Perry may well win the nomination because of it.
The way I look at campaigns is that they tell us what they would like to see happen in an ideal world. That tells me what is in their heart and mind, what their values are, what their philosophies are, what they would fight for or against.
Well, I agree with this. And Cain, Perry and Bachmann have all said they want to RAISE my taxes if they can. I’m not voting for that.
Hush and eat your peas, Paleo.
LOL! Had some just yesterday. Yum. And the BEST thing was, there was no 9 percent federal surtax on them.
Good point...of course...
his (Cain) problem is...any preconceived cost cutting
is going raise questions..."about his heartlessness"
Cain's retort: "Where's is this; in the US Constitution..
we don't have the $$$$"
Sorry, I don’t remember, but the charts and graphs you posted looked familiar.
I’m sure I didn’t study it as closely as you did.
So, since you are actually involved, what do you propose doing?
Cutting off all benefits to illegals unless they have children who are citizens?
I think we should seriously study all benefit programs. There is surely much waste and fraud.
Additionally, the RATs have painted the budget into such a corner that some obvious and necessary cuts (SS) are real complicated and would take a phase-in as we have heard in the past. (Bush’s meager modification called “privatizing sosh-security)
Try playing the budget cutting game yourself...search “Budget Hero”
Just 4 years ago the budget was about $1 trillion less than now. It CAN be done—’cause it already has been.
That said, my dispute is with a gaggle of Repuke wannabe monkeys who are running on a “my tax plan is better” platform that basically raises taxes on me and many others though I really care MUCH more about me.
You never hear anyone mention the billions of kickback grants to phony “green energy” companies or corn growers or the millions pissed away buying .50 cals and grenades for Mexican invaders or the garbage political correct programs that infect every agency INCLUDING DOD which is stinking fat with tail to tooth, etc.
There’s plenty that can be cut—just start with every bogus regulation wielded by agencies, sell Fannie and Freddie off for a $1 and get out of the mortgage biz, close down student loans for which there is NO constitutional paltform, etc etc etc.
Cut cut cut cut cut.
The only monkey among the chimps talking cut cut cut cut is Ron Paul. He’s a screwy little dude who doesn’t care whether anyone likes him or not. I’ve always semi-disliked the guy myself but he’s the only conservative running at this point. If I had to vote for one of these characters it would be Paul
I’m a frickin’ Paulbot now. Stop trying to reason with me.
