Illegal Immigrants

Ok, so lots of people lately are asking questions along the lines of "What's the harm of illegal immigrants?" Well my friends, today I bring you the answer!

Or one of the answers.

Or one my friends brings you one of the answers. Whatever, you're missing the point.

This is a quote from some research that my friend Jon did. Here we go.

how are illegal immigrants draining welfare and public services when they're illegal immigrants?

Hospitals are required under law to provide emergency aid to anyone who comes in and needs it free of charge. Hospitals in many areas with high percentages of illegal immigrants have had funding issues or flat out shut down because of the amount of illegal immigrants who come in and request assistance under the broad term "emergency." There's one for "public services."

Ever hear of the term "anchor baby?" If a child is born in the United States, then he/she is automatically a U.S. citizen.
That's the 14th amendment of the US Constitution.
"All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and the State wherein they reside."

Interesting Read...
If an illegal immigrant family has a child in the US, the child is a citizen and the parents generally will not be deported because the child is protected by the rights every US citizen is gaurenteed.

If the immigrant's parents are poor or don't make enough money to support the child, the parents can file for welfare since they're supporting a US citizen.

Here's a good example taken from the link I provided above:

The Silverios from Stockton,
California, are illegal aliens seen as hard-laboring fruit-pickers with
family values. Cristobal Silverio came illegally from Oxtotilan,
Mexico, in 1997 and brought his wife Felipa, plus three children
aged 19, 12, and 8. Felipa, mother of the bride Lourdes (age 19),
gave birth to a new daughter, her anchor baby, named Flor. Flor was
premature, spent three months in the neonatal incubator, and cost
San Joaquin Hospital more than $300,000. Meanwhile, Lourdes
plus her illegal alien husband produced their own anchor baby,
Esmeralda. Grandma Felipa created a second anchor baby,Cristian.

A disabled anchor baby is more
valuable than a healthy one. The two Silverio anchor babies
generate $1,000 per month in public welfare funding. Flor gets
$600 per month for asthma. Healthy Cristian gets $400. Cristobal
and Felipa last year earned $18,000 picking fruit. Flor and Cristian
were paid $12,000 for being anchor babies. This illegal alien
family’s annual income tops $30,000

Don't believe me? Go find something to prove me wrong then; I'm merely stating what I've read, studied and wrote about myself.

So there you have it folks.

Illegal immigrants DO cause problems. And I can bet you there are even more that could be brought up...

Good game.

    Yes, but why have the immigrants be illegal in the first place? Throughout the history of this country there were no immigration laws - the first ones were put in place to banish Asians from our shores (what a dumb idea in hindsight).

    Despite I am a Conservative Republican, I advocate allowing immigration and the authority of Governors to boot "troublemakers." That necessarily requires improved intelligence on our nascent emigre communities that would pool under this proposal, so it opens a can of worms that pleases neither the Left nor the Right. Hence it is both a sound agenda and one consistent with the Framers.
