This is a big step. We have long tired of all the free-loaders. Look at what they have done in Europe, demanding services.

The standard for immigration used to be you had to prove you weren’t going to be a burden and had to have a sponsor who would vouch to pay for you if you didn’t.

I never thought I’d live to see the day such levelheaded, commonsensical ideas were applied to immigration. After the GWB sellout I thought it was all over.

Good..illegal aliens should NOT get the following: Food Stamps, Welfare, Health care, etc..there is also NO reason why illegals should get access to organs..read a story earlier about how an illegal is getting a new liver, I wonder how many Americans will die waiting for a liver now that this illegal is getting one

They still require a financial sponsor but they don’t enforce it.

It’s an act of love, spending the tax money American producers can’t spend.
