CRUZ SEEKS TO PERMANENTLY BLOCK ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS FROM ALL WELFARE
Breitbart ^ | May 8, 2013 | By Matthew Boyle

Posted on 05/08/2013 3:08:12 PM PDT by Jim Robinson

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) aims to block any illegal immigrant from ever receiving any state, local, or federal welfare or public benefits with a series of amendments to the immigration reform bill currently under review in the U.S. Senate.

Cruz has filed five amendments to the bill. The one currently marked “Cruz 2” on the Senate Judiciary Committee website (the amendments have not yet received official numbers) has a stated purpose to “provide that aliens who have entered or remained present in the United States while not in lawful status shall not be eligible for means-tested benefits.”

The amendment would insert language into the bill that specifically says no illegal immigrant who broke the law to enter or stay in the country “shall be eligible for any Federal, State, or local government means-tested benefit, nor shall such alien be eligible for any benefit under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act Pub. L. 111-148), regardless of the alien’s legal status at the time of application for such benefit.”

In short, without citizenship, even if America’s millions of illegal immigrants received temporary legalization or eventually green cards and permanent legalization, they could never be eligible for any public benefits or welfare, including Obamacare.

In a sane world, there could be no argument against this action.

I say BS! Then they whine and get it with the help of rat lawyers. Cruz is trying to please some and trying to con some. FUC!

Seems there is no elected official who respects America’s Law of the Land.

In a sane world

A sane world would be w/o politicians/lying lawyers and a small gov't. And that same small gov't would follow Our Constitution. And in a sane world, a man's word is his honor. And in a sane world - people wouldn't deliberately do what they know is illegal!

We could offer a one way ticket home. 30% of immigrants couldn’t hack it 100 years ago and returned to the old country. We ended up with the strong ones.

While that’s a great start, he should also add language to ban them from EVER being able to vote in elections.

Thats pretty much the world standard (except for western Europe socialist countries). Japan, China, Russia, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, Argentina, Chile, etc etc,,,
Almost anywhere you immigrate to has a minimum standard that you not become a burden to society.

You don’t get it. Cruz has his amendments lined up to show every bit of lunacy in the bill. There is no chance these amendments will pass. I’m sure he knows that.
