The solution to the problem is simple. Just end food stamps. Just end welfare. All of it. Period.
I only wonder how soon that will happen, not “if”.

I’m sure a LOT of them are. Really a lot. But Bloombutt has declared NYC a sanctuary city, so the rightful legal residents are forced to subsidize and accommodate these low-lifes who have no business being here in the first place. They are busy committing DUI’s that Americans won’t, rapes Americans won’t, murders Americans won’t, and stealing us blind in benefits, seats in already overcrowded and underfunded schools, hospital care in ERs, who aren’t allowed to ask if you’re an illegal, etc.
I don’t know why I’m surprised. But I am.
