    On another thread In the Light said:
    How about this: The only agencies that needs to check on immigration status would be govt agy which give out $$ - ie welfare, food stamps ect, and those govt offices that provide a direct service such as schools, voting ect.

    Now, if you take away the incentive to come to the US, then most illegals will stop coming.

    Thoughts?

    Yep...totally agree. Our government shouldn't give anything to illegals except a ride home.

    God created all men equal. Jesus taught us to love all men equally. Govt. social programs and labor unions made enemies out of all men outside of govt. protected little groups (including 'outside groups' of large voting blocks of honest tax-paying American citizens trying to rein in govt overspending foolishness, as exampled in Wisconsin recently). Another fine example of our tax dollars hard at work.

    I recommend we keep the hard-working individuals and send govt social programs packing on the next bus out of the country. That way we can be friends with our neighbors instead of seeing them as threatening enemies.

    I suggest a national ID card that included finger prints that could be used for everything including borrowing library books, hunting, and fishing.

    Amen! It isn't the illegals who are ruining our country - our nation was built on immigrants who came after filing less papers than most illegals file - it's the welfare programs! The illegals don't take advantage of the system, the lazy bums of all races and national origins do! I'm with you on this. We need hard workers, whether they had the privilege of coming legally or not. We don't need lazy bums so we should stop creating them with all our entitlement programs.

    As Senator Santorum (my pick for president, although not for his immigration policy) so eloquently put it, "we used to spend 60% of our government on defense and 15% (or something like that) on entitlements. Now we spend 15% on defense and 60% on entitlements." We've got problems.
