Should we broadcast a message to the rest of the world that anyone that can find a way to enter this country and somehow get to a sanctuary city can sign up for a plethora of welfare benefits and live a life of leisure at the expense of hard working American citizens? Yes, this question sounds absurd, but what I have just described will essentially be official U.S. government policy if the immigration bill going through Congress becomes law. And unfortunately, Democrats now say that they have the Republican votes that they need to get immigration reform through the House of Representatives.
If this amnesty bill becomes law, it will encourage even more illegal immigration and it will be one more step toward making the U.S. border essentially meaningless.
The following are 19 very disturbing facts about illegal immigration that every American should know
#1 57 percent of all households that are led by an immigrant (legal or illegal) are enrolled in at least one welfare program.
#2 According to one study, the cost to U.S. taxpayers of legalizing current illegal immigrants would be approximately 6.3 trillion dollars over the next 50 years.
#3 The Obama administration has distributed flyers that tell illegal immigrants that their immigration status will not be checked when they apply for food stamps.
#4 The Department of Homeland Security says that it has lost track of a million people that have entered this country but that appear never to have left.
#5 One out of every five children living in Los Angeles County has a parent that is in the country illegally.
#6 In one recent year, taxpayers in Los Angeles County spent 600 million dollars on welfare for children of illegal immigrants.

Here in the SF Bay Area we’re being inundated with an “Undocumented Californian Facts” (takeoff on “Nutrition Facts” labels) campaign. It’s aimed at getting health care for illegal aliens.
don’t worry. offsetting that 6.3 trillion they’ll contribute a few bucks a month into SS. Of course when they become eligible for that we’ll have to find another solution.
Idiot Dems thinking only of power.
Only chance to stop the Amnesty bill is for the House not to consider any immigration related bill at all.
Michelle Bachman explained it. ANY House bill no matter if it promises all the border security in the world will be a trojan horse.NO bill at all must come out of the House because it will be merged with the Senate Amnesty and trojan horse bill. Call congress.
Tell them to stop all Amnesty or immigration bills.they are all trojan horse bills. some will promise border security that will never be enforced anyway.
Bachmann explained it . The House will write a border security bill only . then in conference the senate will add the virus and then bring it back to the house. then the conservatives wont vote for it but democrats will all vote for it so then they only need 10% of republicans to pass Amnesty and the virus that will destroy America. so any bill at all will be added the virus . so best thing is for Boner to not let any immigration bill at all come out of the House. that is the only hope . call boner and the members of the House.
Tom Tancredo echos what Michelle Bachmann said.
call congress . no bill at all from the House
and of course boner must not bring the Senate bill for the House to vote on. no senate bill, no border security bill from the House .nothing
Check the video at the end of the article.
So how do we explain what the Republicans are thinking?
Easy. The Republicans are also the Democrats. They simply chose a confusing name.
And the 16th fact, the one that should choke you - every illegal is a child of Jesus Christ and will feed himself or his kid no matter what any dutiful constitution waving law abiding American says or does, he’s going to go to where he can find a job or feed himself and no law, border, gun toter, or libertarian will ever stop that. It wouldn’t stop me - or you....or would you let it stop you?
You want them to do what you wouldn’t do? Stay? Your ancestors didn’t!
But the rule of law.......I never speed or cheat on my tax deductions or ....I only break the small ones. Feeding your family (sending money home), that’s a great big law to break - BAD.
Those who are here illegally need to be denied healthcare, jobs and all welfare benefits.
As you pointed out these illegal foreign invaders who do not obey our laws and have no loyalty to this country will go elsewhere.
i don’t believe the story about the house from that lying traitorous scum. The senate is different. they want power too and 6 years between answering to the people may be a bit too long.
You can also say 80% of Congress or more have tuned out the American people on illegal immigration and all they talk about is how to improve the lives of illegals 24/7.Spending very little time showing of concern for Americans citizens .They do tell us how Obamacare will improve our lives and this is about it.
