    "President Obama said this week that his health care plan won't cover illegal immigrants, but argued that's all the more reason to legalize them and ensure they eventually do get coverage.

    He also staked out a position that anyone in the country legally should be covered - a major break with the 1996 welfare reform bill, which limited most federal public assistance programs only to citizens and longtime immigrants.

    "Even though I do not believe we can extend coverage to those who are here illegally, I also don't simply believe we can simply ignore the fact that our immigration system is broken," Mr. Obama said Wednesday evening in a speech to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute. "That's why I strongly support making sure folks who are here legally have access to affordable, quality health insurance under this plan, just like everybody else.

    Mr. Obama added, "If anything, this debate underscores the necessity of passing comprehensive immigration reform and resolving the issue of 12 million undocumented people living and working in this country once and for all." "

    No wonder the dems went after Joe Wilson so much, because he hit the nail on the head.
  2. And here we make LEGAL immigrants spend hundreds to thousands of dollars and many months to years waiting for the INS and other agencies, following the legal path.

    But others choose to walk across the border and demand their rights. And millions of americans support them as if illegals are somehow disenfranchised waifs.

    I say throw them all back and make them follow the path all other immigrants. This logic could then be extended to - free everyone in prison, because it no longer matters if we enforce the law.

    They already have citizenship and benefits in their own country of origin. And there is already a legal process for people who are legitimate refugees.

    I have nothing against the poor, but this logic should cause us to take the billions of people around the world in africa, asia and elsewhere who are starving or desparately poor. Why should those in Mexico have priority over them just because they are near enough to sneak in ahead of them???

    In a real sense, every dollar spent on illegal immigrant services steals from legitimate Americans who are very poor or have debilitations.
  3. Good. We need to get these people out of the shadows.
  4. "Illegals" will have to be registered to vote for the Democratic Party if/after such a measure passes. :cool:

    Read up on Crisis Strategy in the below article...


    it's an ongoing onslaught against America.. currently Obama is point man, the Democrats in general are going along with it all and in fact, they had us completely sold out by 1970 or so, after that it was just a matter of keeping the borders open... California has had nearly 90 hospitals shuttered due to being overwhelmed in the emergency rooms by illegals.. it's an unfunded mandate by the Fed that hospitals have to treat anybody that comes to emergency... so illegals, being the barbarians that they are, use it as their primary care...

    As the system is continuously jury rigged on an ongoing basis to produce more poor people that vote for socialism the socialists will take over entirely in a crisis and just declare a free for all... anybody that has more is fair game, just go take it... it will take a warlord to keep property at all...
