Don't spend on illegals

  • Follow Letters

President Obama now wants Congress to give him at least $2 billion to send 55,000 alien children in the United States illegally back to their home countries in Central America. That’s a cost of $36,364 per child. I have a better idea. Take less than $2 million, fuel U.S. troop transport planes to fly them to airports in their home countries, drop them off and let their own governments be responsible for getting them home to be cared for – not U.S. taxpayers. And we shouldn’t be pouring billions of dollars into corrupt governments that already have shown the contempt they have for our government to take care of their children, either. This is all just another one of Obama’s failed policies costing U.S. taxpayers billions of dollars.

When is the American public going to get awakened to this fraudulent president and demand Congress – which is supposed to represent them – do something about him? They are supposed to work for us, but are they? Veterans are dying because of a failed VA system. Thousands of homeless are in the streets, many of them with psychological conditions that put them there. And the president wants to spend billions of dollars relocating criminals back to their home countries? Those who came to this country because of his own failed policies, and granting exception to our immigration laws to illegals already here?

There’s something wrong with this picture and the odor that comes along with it. But then, everything this president does has a strong odor to it. I urge everyone to contact your senators and representatives and tell them to say “no” to the money he’s requesting. Congress should be telling him to use the cheapest method possible to return these illegals to their home countries.

Why did he encourage them to

Why did he encourage them to come here in the first place?

He continues to misjudge hardworking Americans. But that is not surprising. He has no clue what it is to be an Amerian.

It's obvious why he encouraged them to come.
Reason #1, those 16 - 18 year olds will be eligible to vote in 2016 - they'll vote Dem;
Reason #2, his strategy is to make the Republicans complain about this and make it appear conservatives hate immigration;
Reason #3, this will further financially burden the U.S. coffers meaning he will have to tax us more; and
Reason #4, this influx will enable him to contine the downward slide of the U.S.

It was reported that the hospital personnel and anyone else having to deal with the care and transportation of these children were ordered by the federal government to keep silent and not give out any information. Many of the children do not know why they are here and many want to go back home. Several of the children say they have been told exactly what to say about why that had to come here. So this lie the dems are trying to get us to swallow about these children being abused or in fear of their life in their own country is BS.

The other reason Obama

The other reason Obama encouraged it is to make a crises to help Dems pass the immigration reform they want instead of securing the boarder then working out in a rational way who stays and who goes.

It's fairly simple to explain...

It's fairly simple to explain with the following analogy.

Suppose your coffee is bitter. What do you do? You add something to dilute and sweeten it.

That's the same thing with Obama. To him America as it is and as it was founded is bitter and his method to "sweeten" it is to dilute it by an invasion of "people of color" whose countries and backgrounds are amenable to socialism.

Please, understand Obama, Michelle, Valerie Jarrett, Eric Holder, and the vast majority of his administration hate America as it now stands and all on an all out quest to change it to what they believe it should be and no pesky old document written by rich white men over 220 years ago is going to stand in their way. ( I use the word "quest" on purpose because to these people they are on just as strong a journey and crusade to reach their Utopia as any religious force has ever been.)

I would only add that Obama and his minions WANT to build the biggest, most magnificent mansion you could ever imagine!! They've purchased the property to build that mansion, but there is an old worn down building (Constitution and traditional beliefs) on the property. They must first tear down that old building, before they can build their new mansion!!

Right now, they're in the process of tearing down that old building; one piece at a time!! The old building is traditional Amercia, founded by the Constitution. The mansion they want to build is a socialist state!! `

dee, Obama hatred of the USA and white men was taught to him by 'Frank' Marshall Davis his mentor for at least 10 years. Davis, from Chicago, was a racist, a communist, an America hating child molester. Obama's 'Dream from My father' was the hatred of the British, America and white men in general.

History did not begin in 2009:

You might not remember President Reagan's 1986 Immigration Reform and Control Act, which, along with stronger border enforcement (that was never enacted) anybody who had entered the US illegally before 1982 would be eligible for full amnesty, and put on a path toward citizenship. My friends and I even had a nickname for these freshly-minted citizens: REPUBLICANOS.

Yes, Reagan went along with the amnesty in '86...

Yes, Reagan went along with the amnesty in '86 based on the promised by the Democrats that they would secure the border. Guess what the Democrats lied and went back on their word.

Guess what they did the same thing with Eisenhower in the 50's with "Operation Wet Back" with the same promise.

The Democrats also lied about reducing spending in exchange for a tax increase by GHW Bush. He took them at their word and it cost him the reelection.

Bottomline is never, ever, believe a Democrat promise.

Let's look at some cost of illegal aliens...

Let's look at some cost of illegal aliens in the US:

--$11B -$22B spent by states on welfare to illegal aliens.

--$22B per year on food assistance such as food stamps, WIC, and free school lunches.

--$2.5B per year on Medcaid.

--$12B per year on primary and secondary education for illegal children.

--$17B per year on education for children of illegal aliens, aka "anchor babies".

--$3M per day to incarcerate illegal aliens.

--30% of all federal prison inmates are illegal aliens.

--$90B per year is spent on welfare and social services by federal government.

--$200B per year in suppressed American wages caused by illegal aliens.

--In 2006, illegal aliens sent home $45B in remittance to their countries of origin.

--Nearly one million sex crimes are committed each year in US by illegal aliens.

There is the monetary costs and some of the societal costs of the illegal aliens of whom Obama wants more. Cloward-Pevin anyone?

ILLEGALS
Unpublished

My Father and both sides of Grandparents came here as legal immigrants. They did it the right way and followed the laws in place. They had to have a sponsor and a job waiting for them. There was no welfare and income safety net for them. They made it as productive Americans on their own. The same social programs that has devastated many poor Americans depriving them of any semblance of a work ethic is exactly what most of these illegals are coming for. They're fleeing countries that don't have programs that let them sit around with free food, rent, healthcare, phones, free lunches and college subsidies to come and suck on the teat of American taxpayers. Obama wants to collapse America and turn it into a third world country. Isn't it ironic that the very think these illegals are fleeing might very well be the future on America.

Illegal aliens cannot vote in

Illegal aliens cannot vote in Presidential elections, hoptoad.

Dee Stafford, all illegal children are allowed to go to public schools, they don't have to be anchor babies.

But Dee- WHY aren't the Republicans in favor of cutting all the benefits?

Illegals do vote in our

Illegals do vote in our elections . To cases one of a Kenyan and one of a philippino that actually went to court are documented. A New York legislature wants to give them the right to vote.
