Fair enough, though it still dosen't make much sense for the Mexican to try to get all the way to Canadian borders, more of a concern would be
What about free healthcare for pretty much everybody even illigals, although depending on the Doc they could get ratted out and deported because there
seems to be a backlash against illigals lately up here
Sardion2000, question for you..... Who is paying this doctor , his nurses, paying for supplies.... and on and on and on?
Who is paying for the medication???
As it is right now, hospitals and doctors are required by law not to turn people away if they can not show a means to pay or if they are here legally
(or ilegally). I cannot remember ever having to produce identification to any doctor much less than an ER. So in essensence, the illegals already
have free healthcare, remember they do not pay taxes (other than sales taxes) Who payes for this free healthcare we do the taxpayers that is who.
The federal goverment as well as the states have in place organizations that cater to the low income people to provide them with free (or greatly
reduced drugs) along with free check ups.
This is going on today even as we speak this is one of the components to the failed resolution a few years back in California.
Then when you factor in the free education that they are given (again they are not paying for it as they do not pay taxes you do)
What happens in the end... all of our taxes are raised so that we can subsidize all this free services to people who are ilegally here.
This is not tolerated in most countries around the world for the above reason and many more such as increased crime rate (yes this can be shown
statically), why should the us and it's citizens both native, and those who legally live and work here not do the same?
I have no problem with people who wish to immigrate here and who use the legal channels to move here. By doing this, they are showing just how much
they want to be here, think about it now from the side of those who wish to be here illegally, yes they want to be here to, yes they want to better
themselves, but they cannot be bothered to follow the laws (by the very means of their entry). If they can ignore this one law, why should they bother
to obey any others? If they get caught, hey that is a free plane ride home (in most cases). If they do not get caught but know the law is after them,
hey, they can cross the border (in the opposite direction) and be home free and of course since they have done it before, they can just cross the
border again once the heat is off.
I live in texas and I have a very high automobile insurance rate. you ask me why, one of the main reasons is nthat I have to have insurance to cover
damages to my vehicle if it gets hit by someone who does not have insurance. guess what, many (if not most) of those who are in the us illegally do
not have car insurance.
Then go ahead and try to cover your losses, guess what, read the section above about breaking the law.
In the long run, it is costing the individual tax payer hundreds (if not thousands) of dollars of here in support of those people who are here
Can you give me one good reason why I or my family should have to pay for all these "free" services? Can you give me one reason why I and my family
should have to suffer higher crime rates or the personal and property damage caused by theses illegals?
I am fairly opened minded, but I rejoiced when the federal goverment started to put in place limitations on those who are on welfare. I will quote on
person who was televised here complaing why they did not look for work..." why should I go and work at one of these places that the welfare office
sends me? I would not be making as much money working as a secretary (note that is what the welfare office trained her to be) when the welfare (which
she would no longer be eligible for) was paying her more for just sitting at home?
I am a firm believer that in order to be something in life, you have to go after it yourself and should not require others to support / pay your way
through life. I came from a family that "lived" on welfare and I do mean that in all since of the statement and i hated every second of it what i
and my family have today, we have struggled and paid for, we never depended on anyone for anything.
