Ask your State Legislators to Prevent Illegal Aliens from Getting Public Benefits

This new fax has been posted in your Action Buffet based on your answers to the Interest Survey.

You can find this fax by proceeding to
http://www.numbersusa.com/faxes?ID=13646

Each year, states and localities spend about $84 billion on services for illegal aliens. Clearly, this is an unwise way to spend taxpayer dollars when so many states are having trouble making ends meet. However, 11 states already require the use of the federal SAVE system to verify benefit applicants to ensure they are in this country legally, and therefore entitled to receive public assistance.


Please send your state legislators a fax and encourage them to pass legislation that would require benefit applicants to be run through the SAVE system so that illegal aliens cannot receive services meant for American citizens. Giving welfare benefits to illegal aliens only encourages these individuals to stay in the United States and even encourages more people to come here illegally.

    But since the FED is suing Alabama over trying to get the damned illegals out, it will be pretty hard to do, the illegals KNOW the FED will protect them.

    Illegals do take jobs Americans will do, construction jobs as in roofing, siding, framing, dry wall, paving, etc. Then you have fast food jobs where teens work, department stores, factory jobs, hotel industry jobs, landscaping jobs, and the list goes on and on while they draw welfare, get food stamps and live in section 8. How many homeless families would love to have that section 8 home with any of the mentioned jobs rather than living in a shelter or tent or their car if they managed to keep one? Don't tell me illegals aren't hurting Americans and they only do jobs we wont. Then think of the ones we support in our prisons. They cost too much and we need to send them home just as their countries would lock us up and send us home.

    Illegals should get emergency care only. Anything other than emergency care should not be afforded to them, they do not contribute so why or how do they deserve anything else.

    Mexican Illegals have just flooded and taken over the western states now! They are nothing but truble and a huge burden for the US!!! Not only are they destroying our economy, taking our much needed jobs, hording all of the free state programs, paying no taxes, getting huge tax returns by getting EIN numbers and claiming 37 dependent children that are not even really realated to them that live in Mexico, they make once nice neighborhoods look like crap now from not taking care of their homes or yards of the homes they live in and let 5 other Illegal Mexican families live in the garage, increased crime, and some Mexican gangs in AZ, & CA have taken over and made it a horrible place to live. I have never seen a race that takes advantage of everything and everyone so badly! So why in the hell is the miltary not taking over and start massive deporting? I think our country has so many Lawyers on every street corner now that will sue anyone for anything to make a dollar. Even our goverment is afraid of enforcing any immigration laws or massive deportation in fear of law suits from ceirtain groups. NOTHING IS BEING DONE STILL! THEY ARE FLOODING INTO UT, NV, CA, ID, TX, NM, AZ AT RECORD NUMBERS NOW!

    As funny as that song is, and he is very correct, we are the only country that will allow all of these. Every world citizen is trying to get to this country, but should anyone decide to go to any of their countries, they will be jailed, shot, tortured and everything else they can do to a human being. We are the only very stupid people in the world, but these "PROGRESSIVES" in this country have decided that this is the only way they can win elections. These politicians will bring this country down to the rest of the other countries in the world.

    If the USA would just make one ....ONE... change, it would have huge repercussions. Put an end to the automatic birthright law. Automatic birthright should only be for those who have American parents or one American parent.

    Take federal welfare programs. Although illegal aliens are barred from accessing them, they obtain benefits such as Medicaid, Temporary Assistance to Needy Families, and food stamps on behalf of their U.S.-born children. Since cash welfare benefits and food stamps are fungible within a household, that welfare spending directed at the children of illegal immigrants also benefits the parents. It is also quite likely that a substantial portion of the medical costs of births to illegal aliens are funded through the Medicaid program.

    CIS estimates that 40% of illegal alien households nationwide receive some type of welfare despite federal prohibitions.... because of their children. That rate is even higher in states with larger numbers of illegal aliens such as New York (49%), California (48%), and Texas (47%). Contrast that very high rate with the fact that only 19% of households headed by a native-born citizen receive welfare benefuts.

    Automatic citizenship rights cost this country many billions. There should have been an amendment years ago.

    Not really in favor of public benefits for illegal aliens, but states do not have the power to prevent it. Much of the public benefits handed out are controlled by federal law, and any state that fails to meet the federal requirements will be punished by withheld federal funds to the state.

    But there's no federal requirement to give illegals public benefits, so your point is moot. In fact, it's a federal felony CRIME to give aid to an illegal alien. See:

  • sbtbill Lanikai 2011/11/29 21:12:07

    No we don't ignore it. The point is there are a lot of mixed families. The citizens in the family qualify for aid, the undocumented don't. Second there are a lot of people who assume that undocumented get a lot more aid then they do. Third thing some so called benefits like resident tuition for kids who have lived in the state for over a year are not benefits to undocumented they are just a proper interpretation of the law.

    I do not disagree that we need a solution to this problem. It is my opinion that the problem has to be solved in a comprehensive way. 1) We must take into account families and keep them together. 2) We must look at all the borders not just the Mexican border. 3) We have to look at the cost of anything we do. 4) Hiring is the real problem and the biggest problem in hiring isn't undocumented but H1b documented, those are the ones taking the high paying jobs. Some employers have to go to jail. The only solution I see that would work is a comprehensive one that solves all these problems at once and maintains the traditions of the US.

    When I went to our local health department to get a copy of a birth certificate, there were NON english speakers signing up for welfare, all levels of welfare. They cover up the local walmart on Saturdays- they overload the place using their welfare cards. You are deluding your self if you think the non legal residents are not getting benefits, you are wrong.

    Our friend runs the contagious diseases department, he has a family of 14 being treated for Tuberculosis, 14, 2 parents and 12 kids, ALL on the public dole getting expensive treatments, free housing, free food, GO THE EFF HOME already and contaminate YOUR OWN population.

    What has not speaking English have to do with citizenship? I know a lot of people who are citizens who prefer to speak a language other then English. I wish I could speak more Tagalog. Sometimes I even watch Tagalog TV to try to learn it. I was born in Wisconsin where a lot of people speak German.

    OK, you know someone who knows a large family with TB what has that got to do with citizenship?

    I am fully aware that a few undocumented cheat. So do many documented.

    These are illegals, they have no paperwork. So, it is a problem and a very very expensive one.

    ANY immigrant whether legal or not that lives in America, should learn English. Period, it should be a mandatory thing.
