Not doing the jobs Americans won’t do: 70% of illegal aliens in Texas receive welfare

Illegal aliens crossing the border to line up at the welfare office

A new study has found that a remarkable 70% of illegal aliens in Texas are on the dole. Since only 39% of native born Americans are on welfare, it makes one think that the phrase “doing the jobs Americans won’t do” should be changed to “not doing the jobs that Americans won’t do.”

The Houston Chronicle tells the terrible tale of Texas taxes:

Thirteen years after Congress overhauled the American welfare system, 57 percent of immigrants with children — those in the country legally or not — use at least one government, welfare program according to a report released Tuesday by the Center for Immigration Studies.

In comparison, 39 percent of native-born Americans with children are signed up for welfare, the report found.

In Texas, 54 percent of legal immigrants and 70 percent of illegal immigrants receive welfare assistance, with illegal immigrants generally receiving benefits on behalf of their U.S.-born children, according to the study, written by a think tank that favors reducing immigration into the U.S.

Overall, Texas tied with California and New York for the second highest immigrant welfare rates behind Arizona.

Congratulations, Texas. Keep up the good work and you’ll be number uno in no time at all.

And everyone wonders where all the money is going to. It’s time to deport every last illegal, cut them off the government tit and send them back. Don’t feed me the crap that it will disrupt families. Hell most left families in their native country. We can just let them have a big ol family reunion in their own country.

Illegal, you get nothing. No education for your illegal children, no WIC, no food stamps, no section 8 NOTHING. One thing that they could get is a free screening of Poltergeist looped over and over again. Just the one scene where they are told to GET OUT!!

You can call me anti illega or what ever you wish. My ancestors came here as indentured servants.

u are the most ignorant person here..ppl come from all over the world nobody really is from the u.s neither are our roots…people like u discust me in everyway..i dont agree with welfare but if they are here and been here for a long time..y should everyone else get to take advantage of the welfare and not do anythin with themselves when most people that come here illegally do it only until they get back up on their feet..which is the reason welfare was first established

Awwww.. we both got TDs for stating the obvious. Liberal drive-by TDers HATE when anyone points out the obvious flaw in their rhetoric. It gets in the way of their flowery prose and suicial thought process.

I’m sure glad ol’ Jess came by to straighten us out. With his truly awesome literary style, and numerous factoids, all backed up with impeccable documentation, I’m sure we will all just drop our pre-conceived notions about illegal aliens, and become liberals right now. Come on, everyone! Let’s all go to the compassionate side!

Of course most of them left families behind. Who do you think they’re sending all that money to? Mexico’s #1 source of income may be tourism, but #2 has got to be all the US $$ being sent back home, tax-free, by our uninvited guests.

At the very least start charging taxes out the @$$ on Western Union and money orders to Mexico!

“Mexico’s #1 source of income may be tourism, but #2 has got to be all the US $$ being sent back home, tax-free, by our uninvited guests.”

I’ve read numerous times over the last few years that depending on the price of oil, it goes back and forth between oil and the Almighty Dollar as being the #1 and #2 source of income for Mexico.

As far as tourism goes, I personally refuse to go there. I can just go to East LA if I want authentic Mexico…at least it should be easier for the cops to find my bullet riddled body.

Another hit to the economy are the one’s getting paid cash under-the-table for labor. I doubt if they are paying taxes on those wages. The American Dream: Cross a fence line, you can work. Or not. You can learn the language, but you don’t have to because everything has your native tongue printed on it (except the currency, but that’s universal). Make sure the woman that’s pumping out your babies doesn’t share your last name so the benefits keep rollin’ in. And vote democrat. Easy livin’

First and foremost we have to remember that ‘wetbacks‘ are merely ‘undocumented Democrats‘…

Well if one takes at look at the original CIS report it makes one wonder, “Gee! Whatever happened to welfare reform of 13 years ago?“…

Seems like the racists have been coming out of the woodwork and dirtying up the place lately. Think maybe it’s some leftists trying to pose as righties to “prove” their bs mantra that we are the racists?

I don’t hold it against you at all, I understand your viewpoint. Like I said, I wanted to see him gone also. My only concern is that it gives ammo to those that would say that opposing viewpoints aren’t allowed here. Of course, Joan and Olivia are proof that they are.

With all due respect, I just want to state that he doesn’t just spew general hatred, he also spews personal hatred against posters. It is all well and good to just thumb down and move on, when one is not personally insulted for something that the person has NO CONTROL over (the way they look or the color of their skin), but when there is personal hatred directed against a person the hater’s rights end.

Freedom of Speech and the Constitution do not protect those that wish to infringe upon the rights of others to live their lives in peace and free from hatred. This man is spewing bile towards us all and some of us in particular. Like DRB said he is not apporting to the site he is creating problems. His rights ends when ours are infringed. Freedom of Speech does not protect him from invading my space (so to speak) with hate speech. It is very difficult to just ignore a personal attack and it is also difficult to just ignore general racism as if it is not sensibly dealt with, it gives the site a very bad pedigree.

I do not come here to be called racist names. If I wanted to be called racist names, I would go to a racist website and tell people I am not white. I could go to a skinhead parade and stand there for a few seconds. I could talk to a liberal. If I come here and have to read racism unhinged then I would rather not come here then. I wouldn’t feel welcome at all and many other people of color who may come here to learn about the conservative takes on the news wouldn’t either and that would be a waste.

He has been asked to tone it down, he refused. He has other platforms where he can express these views freely. He can have his racist believes all that I ask is that he and others do not feel free to do it, in a place that is not DESIGNED for that and where I would say most people do not subscribe to , nor come here to read.

It’s a tough call, since this site DOES stand for the Constitution, and Free Speech. He does have the right to spew hatred, and we do reserve the right to ignore it. (TDx3) But in order to preserve the integrity of the site, it has to be made clear in some way that his brand of speech isn’t welcome here, or we give ammo to the left, who would brand us as a radical, far right, racist group. I say leave him, and everyone just TD,………….MO.

Had it been one instance of racism, or if the racist remarks had come from ignorance of what sort of remarks are considered racist, i’d be less inclined to vote for a ban on this dipweed.
As the matter stands I don’t want to see what he has to say. Nor do I desire to leave this community because of one such as it. Therefore; I vote for it to be banned.

p.s. by it i mean that thing spouting racist dookie.

Damn, I’m waffling, we all know what he’s about. If we were all at a BBQ at my house it’s a no-brainer and would have been handled with extreme prejudice a long time ago. But Mr. Ed’s thoughts about a “teachable moment” in a forum like this is an excellent point, you do have to make an effort to see them. When do the polls close?

Mr Ed,
Mickey is singling out a particular group. Not all illegal immigrants are of Mexican heritage. For him to repeatedly bring up illegal Mexican but leave out all other illegals is proof that he is racist. He can try to spin it however he wants, but he will not gain any ground here as long as he attacks KQ and singles out Mexicans. I feel he doesn’t bring anything positive to the site.

Mr. Editor,

Two points I would like to say:

1. I agree that ILLEGAL immigration is a problem. That is the only thing that this troll and I agree with. We do not agree however that the illegal problem is only Mexicans and obviously I don’t agree that this is a WHITE America. I wouldn’t mind the troll if he had kept his racist bile to himself. He may not like those who are not white, however this is not a racist website, he could have espoused his dislike for ILLEGAL immigration and stop there and everyone would have agreed with him and he wouldn’t have had to feel attacked nor would we have to read his stupid hateful rants.

2. I do believe in freedom of speech, however I also believe that it is a freedom that comes with responsibilities AND that there are places where certain speeches should not be welcomed. I know deep inside my mind that if I came here or anywhere else and espoused the SAME crap he has espoused just changing the targets to white people or native americans or whomever, I would not be allowed to continue on such hateful rants without some kind of punishment. I hate racists they are vile people, but I do defend their right of speech (even though disgusting), however, I do think that there are platforms for them to say what they want, I just don’t think this should be one of them. There are places he can go and spew his bile, I don’t think I nor you nor anyone here should have to take this bile when (I believe) most of us do not subscribe to that nor do we come here for that type of thing.

That is just my two cents there… Thanks.

Give em the boot again as soon as the next spew hits the ceiling, but it will probably come back as a new identity soon enough.

After a quick perusal of its recent posts, any hesitation in applying the ejector seat on that punk would be hard to understand.

I think that a caveat is essential for sure, however I do say ban him. He and others should know that this is a civilized place where certain speech is not acceptable, but he is free to pursue his speech elsewhere and to keep his speech just not here. I know that a racist website would not accept MY speech (and they shouldn’t since they won’t agree and that is not the reason they go to the website). I think it is just.

My question is why do people like this (Olivia as well) come back to sites where they know they are not welcomed and their speech is found to be completely counter to the speech of the majority of those that visit here? You will NEVER see me going to a racist website to say anything not even to say that I hate racists… why should I do that? And why should I try to go back with another handle to continue to spread the same message over and over again that no one wants to read? It is insanity.
