States Work Behind Scenes to Give Illegal Aliens Benefits

before amnestyAs the national debate over immigration reform gets more and more heated, some states are working behind the scenes to give illegal aliens benefits that are supposed to be banned under federal law.

This month alone two states—Oregon and Maryland—passed measures that allow illegal immigrants to obtain driver’s licenses and a third (Colorado) is close to doing the same. For years Washington State and New Mexico were the only to offer illegal immigrants driver’s licenses. That changed earlier this year when Illinois passed a law, with strong bipartisan support, that’s expected to give about a quarter of a million illegal aliens the right to apply for a valid state driver’s license simply by providing a photo identification from their native country and some sort of proof that they’ve lived in Illinois for a year.

It appears to have started a trend. Now Connecticut and the District of Columbia are considering laws to let illegal immigrants drive in the state. Rhode Island was contemplating the same, but put the bill on hold for the year when a 39-year-old illegal immigrant struck and killed a 6-year-old boy while driving a pickup truck without a license. The illegal alien, Andres Morales, is being held by the feds on immigration charges.

That doesn’t mean Rhode Island’s bill is dead, however, because lawmakers have indicated that it will be introduced during the next legislative session. Connecticut’s proposal will likely become law, according to media reports, because it has widespread support from state and local leaders, including the governor, legislators and a number of mayors. In fact, last month they held a news conference at that state capitol to endorse the initiative.

In D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray introduced a bill just a few days ago to give illegal immigrants driver’s licenses in the nation’s capital. This would happen via a two-tiered system in which illegal aliens would receive a card that wouldn’t be accepted on the federal level, to board a plane or enter a government building. In 2011 Gray, who has been embroiled in a variety of scandals, signed an executive order to make D.C. a sanctuary for illegal immigrants by forbidding police and other city agencies from asking people about their immigration status.

Also this month, Colorado passed a bill granting illegal aliens discounted tuition at the state’s public colleges and universities. About a dozen other states—including California, Illinois, New York, Utah and Texas—already offer the perk which annually costs U.S. taxpayers millions of dollars. To celebrate the law’s passage, Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper attended a rally at one of the state’s public universities and said the measure will grant illegal students with a “path forward.”

    This is why Me and quite a few others have started a coalition called Americans Have Had Enough. We are going to start making local governments accountable for the invasion in Beaufort County and help it domino affect throughout S.C.

    Illegals get away with a lot of fraud and we are fed up. Our schools are inundated with non English speakers and is costing home owners more money to educate them. They have raised our property taxes three times in the last five years even if you do not reside in a second home.

    School employees have spread TB like wildfire and DHEC ignored this in one school in Greenwood S.C and the TB spread throughout the community. This is under investigation as we speak.

    We want E-verify to be used not just for employment but government entitlements, buying a car or a car loan, home loans ect…

    English needs to be mandatory in our schools before you enroll your child or we once again are pandering to “glorified daycare centers” Early Childhood Centers and finding out they are not teaching the English language first.

    Our jails are 32% illegals with more than one offense in other states.

    Clinics are closing every year because illegals inundate them.

    To find employment you are asked if you are bilingual (spanglish).

    Barrios are forming all around us with farm animals and trash everywhere.

    Young children and even seniors are being raped and molested..everyday.

    Drunk driving is highest among illegals.

    Bed bugs and Chagas is spreading like wildfire.

    Whooping cough is back strong fold.

    Basically, our neighborhoods have been invaded by more poor and uneducated illegal aliens and it has got to stop. Please feel free to visit our website and make us an affiliate at

    1) Have those that are already here — register (just like our ancestors did at Ellis Island);
    2) Background checks are a MUST;
    3) After they register, they MUST attend classes to learn to read and speak English (most community colleges offer classes);
    4) They must learn the Constitution; Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence (and be tested);
    5) They must then go before a judge to be sworn in as an American Citizen.
    6) The men “must” join the Military if he is under 30 years of age.
    7) They must have a health Check

    The adults will NEVER receive Social Security benefits because they have not paid into it.
    They are NOT to receive food stamps for the same reason. They have never paid into the system to warrant receiving food stamps.

    8) No Drivers Licenses will be issued to any person who cannot prove they are in the U.S. “legally.”

    9) Put the Military on the border. Place signs at every major path where they come into the U.S. Also run ads in all the major newspapers; and give a press release to every major TV station in Mexico.
    IF shot crossing the border “illegally, any lawsuits will not be accepted in any U.S. court.

    Individuals who hire illegals will be fined $25,000 per person (prior to this, the fine was only $250 here in Texas;
    Corporations who hire illegals will be fined $50,00 per person;

    It is illegal to house illegals. It is already in law that Real Estate Sales Reps as well as apartments cannot rent to them. They do anyway. FINE THEM MUCH MORE HEAVILY and if it is the 2nd offense, they should lose their real estate license and/or be put in jail.

    Community Colleges allow them to register for school. They should also be heavily fined.

    To stop the illegals (and dope runners) from crossing the borders, put the Military on the border. Prior to
    that, run an ad in every major newspaper in Mexico, Central America that they will be shot if caught trying to cross the border. NO LAW SUITS WILL BE HONORED BY THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

    And, YES, there will be profiling…Anyone who is a U.S. citizen will NOT have a problem proudly showing their Drivers License, correct legal papers; or any other proof. THEY ARE, AFTER ALL, INVADING OUR COUNTRY and this has to be stopped and they will agree with us.

    I found this out from a social worker who works in the Dept. of Services one of many offices in Texas. She shared a story with me. The illegals plan to live very close to each other so they can help each other out from time to time. One family may only have two children; however the wife/mother in the family runs to her closest illegal family and “borrows” their children in order to go to the Food Stamp Division of health services.

    In other words, they are getting enough food stamps for “two families vs. one.”

    The next day, the folks that offered “their children BORROW their children and head off to apply at the same place for food stamps. I don’t know if they have ever found a way to stop this…I don’t even know if they try.

      They have been using their children’s and siblings Social Security numbers all along. Tell your friend to write a letter to her congressman, turn in the family to BICE and INS. Maybe this will domino affect so the truth comes out.

    This has been going on for a very long, long time. I live in a city of about 70,000 in Texas. On my short block there are about 15 homes then the street curves (I don’t know how many illegals around the bend from me that house illegals.

    On my block alone there are 4 houses with illegals living there. They all have children.
    By accident I ran into someone at the grocery store. You know how it is. You standing in the check out line and chatting to pass the time. Our conversation led to talking about the number of illegals in the area. The cashier overheard us talking and chimed in.

    It seems they come into the store and both husband and wife grab a basket. The top and bottom of the basket is filled with groceries; and of course, they pay with food stamps. They go out to the NEW SUV-type car and unload the groceries.

    THEN they go back into the store and again both of them grab two carts to continue shopping. Only this time, BOTH baskets are filled up with cases of beer and wine.

    This is only ONE of many examples I have.
