I knew the situation was out-of-control along our borders, but I had no idea it was as bad as it really is. When you read this story, you will be enraged that our politicians are doing nothing to stop this problem. These numbers are staggering, not to mention unsustainable, and why should taxpayers be expected to always foot the bill?
As far as I'm concerned our politicians deserve prison time for permitting situations like this to occur. Add to that the ludicrous decision to seek energy resources from nations which hate us when our country is overflowing with our own natural resources. Oh, and don't forget the mortgage meltdown which led to this economic disaster we are presently enduring, all because it was "unfair" that poor people could not own homes. So, our trusty politicians insisted that banks and lending institutions make loans to those who could not afford to repay them. We, the people, are fed up with this insanity on steroids coming out of Washington.

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.'"
