    How do you know that those "welfare scammers" are illegals?

    Does their name make you think they're brown people?

    First of all it's 10 million and second, study after study is the only people they take jobs from are high school drops out.

    Whom I don't feel that sorry for if you can't even hack HS. Probably means you can't hack a lot of other things.

    Except for those who also hold they are stealing all our welfare benefits, which is just as common a theme as that they are stealing our jobs.

    Smart enough to steal our jobs and our welfare benefits at the very same time, but yet not so smart that they can bypass a wall.

    Don't worry, once those illegals get papers, they won't have to take fruit picking and lawn mowing jobs. They can compete with American citizens for the good jobs at GM, GE, and everywhere else that good, highly paid workers are sought. They only have to take those jobs no one wants because they don't have papers. Giving work permits to illegals is a dream come true for employers.

    If they weren't here illegally to drop anchor, they wouldn't be buying groceries with the lone star card.
