    I have got this email before. Its true and why I don't vote. Its all crap. The people who make the money decisions only care about making money.
    Life is like a movie, you've sat through half of it and its sucked so far, it probably isn't gonna get great right at the end to make it all worthwhile. you shouldn't get blamed for walking out early

    You know it takes like 10 years for you to get your papers though, right? My mom just this year finally became a US citizen after having waited that long. Too many people come here because they want a better life for their family, and 10 years of waiting might be a little too much for them. Just a thought.

    Both reasons 1 and 8 re-state the same thing: welfare. They give two different numbers though.

    1 states that 11 to 22 billion a year.

    8 states that "$90 Billion Dollars a year is spent on illegal aliens for Welfare & social services by the American taxpayers"

    If they were here legally they would be paying this themselves, right? But they cant because the system makes them wait so long.

    I don't see a single fact stating how much our government has spent on the iraq war? This seems to be a very slanted message and even though I can understand the outrage that some may feel I really don't like the undermeaning and the animosity it may cause. Unless your native american, we were all descendents of an illegal alien at some point only the laws have changed over the centuries on how to become an american citizen. I would think that anyone that has spent this much effort in fact finding would also at least take the time to make this a little more unbiased by looking up other facts and letting us judge them for ourselves.

    When I lived in AZ. I've never seen so much animosity against the latin culture. I was constantly mistaken for being mexican when I think its painfully obvious that I'm of the asian culture.

    member ellis island? Do you know the laws in our foreign countires if you go there illegally? Not allowed to vote! Not entitled to any welfare or gov assitance. If you go there illegally you go to jail.

    If that is an issue to you I would suggest proactively seeking ways to have the laws changed following these other countries foreign policies against illegal aliens. It is unfortunate that there are people here in this country that are taking advantage of our loopholes but don't be mistaken that one culture alone is responsible for this there are plenty of other cultures that take part in these loopholes as well.

    This message seems to have a focus on non white illegal aliens which seems quite biased to me. Hence items 10 and 11.

    Same here in Ireland. I know of a aslium family who get everything paid for them. Their son goes to Trinity Collage and we paid for a 4k laptop for him. They say they are here cause they are scared of living in their own country, yet they have been home twice in the last few years for weddings!!!! After the amazing long process, up to 5 years, they have been granted asliuim but they are still getting money from the state.
    I don't blame the people but the Gov erment who see if fit to waste our money like this.

    The more I read this thread the more it irritates me. I am an American citizen and was born here in the states. However my parents immigrated here in 1968 and never received a handout from the US government nor have they have they ever in their whole life received any kind of government assistance. They both came here legally and were sponsored by my great grandfather. It is this kind of message that sends the kind of idea that people that minorities come here to this great country are looking for a handout. I can't tell you how many times I heard when I was growing up How my parents must have gotten free money from the government and how my kind are offered all these kind of benefits that regular American citizens didn't get. My parents had nothing when they came here but the clothes on their back. My parents slept on the floor for years until they were able to afford to buy their own bed. My father whom recently retired this year, retired at making less than $15 an hr. My parents have numerous investments they have accumalated throughout their life and have always stressed the importance of saving money. I make more than double what my father makes and feel pathetic because I don't have nearly as many investments as they have. I have a lot of respect for my father for how hard he worked to raise myself and my brother with what little they had.

    My father always talks about how important that I need to pay respect for my great grandfather for helping them to come here to the United States. He was the one that helped my parents not the welfare system. Before anyone posts some kind of thread like this, take a moment to consider what it is like to walk in the other persons shoes for a minute. Not every one that comes to this country is here to take advantage of the system.
