Would We Be Better Off Renouncing Our Citizenship?

Over the past few years, I have found myself getting more frustrated with what is going on in this country. Every time I pick-up the newspaper I find myself saying “what the hell is going on in this country.” It seems to me that non-citizens, illegal aliens are getting more from this country than the citizens of this country do.  What kind of country do we live in, where people who do not belong here, are better taken care of than the people who are here legally?

Just look around the country, how many states offer illegal aliens discounted college tuition, or sometimes free tuition, while citizens of this country pay thousands more?

If an illegal alien is caught driving without a license, they are let free, while citizens are taken to jail and fined.

An illegal alien applying for welfare and food stamps does not have to supply documentation, just go in and say they are here illegally and they are automatically eligible. While if a citizen goes in for the same benefits they have to supply their life’s history.

Just take a look at how much illegal aliens are costing the taxpayers of this country. It’s easy to dismiss individual programs that Benefit non-citizens until they’re put together and this picture emerges. Often these programs are buried within other Programs making them difficult to find.

1.$11 Billion to $22 billion is spent on welfare to illegal aliens each year by state governments.

2. $22 Billion dollars a year is spent on food Assistance programs such as food stamps, WIC, and free school lunches for illegal aliens.

3. $2.5 Billion dollars a year is spent on Medicaid for illegal aliens.

4. $12 Billion dollars a year is spent on primary and secondary school education for children here  illegally and they  cannot speak a word of English!

5.$17 Billion dollars a year is spent for education for the American-born children of illegal aliens, known as anchor babies.

6 .$3 Million Dollars a DAY is spent to incarcerate illegal aliens.

7. 30% percent of all Federal Prison inmates are illegal aliens.

8. $90 Billion Dollars a year is spent on illegal aliens for Welfare & social services by the American taxpayer.

9. The illegal aliens cause $200 Billion dollars a year in suppressed American wages.

10. Illegal aliens send home $45 BILLION in remittances to their countries of origin.


Something is wrong, this country has fallen off the tracks somewhere along the line, and it seems our whole society has turned upside down. Washington does not have the stomach for the job, even though it is a simple problem to solve. All they have to do is stop all the freebies, if you are here illegally you get nothing and I mean nothing. Not only will people stop sneaking in to this country once the freebies are gone, but also the ones that are already here, will be running out in record numbers.

What I find ironic, is that Mexico’s immigration laws are stricter then our own, yet the Mexican government complains that our laws are unfair;            Here are a few examples of Mexican law.

Immigrants are:

§ in the country legally;

§ have the means to sustain themselves economically;

§ not destined to be burdens on society;

§ of economic and social benefit to society;

§ of good character and have no criminal records;

§ contributors to the general well-being of the nation;

§ immigration authorities have a record of each foreign visitor;

§ foreign visitors do not violate their visa status;

§ foreign visitors are banned from interfering in the countries internal politics;

§ foreign visitors who enter under false pretenses are imprisoned or deported;

§ foreign visitors violating the terms of their entry are imprisoned or deported;

§ those who aid in illegal immigration will be sent to prison.

And that’s not all, the Mexican authorities are allowed to ask for documentation to prove someone is in the country legally.

Now you see why I say that something is wrong with this country.

This is one man’s opinion.

  1. Chris, you’ve very efffectively expressed the frustrations of Americans that love this great nation. I live in a border state that is experienceing a tidal wave of “criminal trespassers” due to our town’s 3.9% unemployment rate. There is a marked increase in OTM’s (other than Mexican) crossing our Borders from Iran, Afganistan, etc. Last week there was a group discoverd that had 3 from Kandihar (you know, where American military are being killed) I would bet the farm that everyone of ‘our’ legislators & those professing to want ‘open Broders’ have lock on thir homes & fences around the yard TO PROTECT & MARK WHAT IS THEIRS. Guess it’s true, what my mother taught me…IF YOU WANT IT DONE RIGHT, BE READY TO DO IT YOURSELF….Chris, you’re on track! Now is voters will swing hard in November, we can secure OUR borders & those American Citizens living ‘on the route, can once again lilve in freedom…not fear

    1. Hi Jan, Many people do not realize that the Mexican boarder is the entrance point for people from all over the world, that’s why it is so important to get the boarder secured. Once that is done, we can start concentrating on the illegal aliens here.

      1. TRUE…As long as they remain as they are…it’s like bailing water out of a boat with a huge hole in it…wasted energy & $$$. There are numerous sites that can ‘grafically’ show the story. ie” Az Border Defenders, Assoc of Retired Border Patrolman, or Tx Border Watch Voulnteers. There was a rancher just north of Tucson last year whose wife went to the barn & discovered about a 1/2doz ‘illegal criminal trespassers’ sleeping in a stall. She always has a side arm. This is NOT RIGHT!!! Frankly, I can’t see this or any administration getting tough, but perhaps IF voters will ‘stack th senate & house” States won’t be sued & allowed to SECURE their area. Man, I’ve stocked up on prayr candles. Keep up the good ‘stuff’

        1. We need to take immigration out of the hands of the feds and give it to the states. New Jersey don’t need the same immigration laws as Texas or Arizona. We need to give rights back to the states.

  2. Jerry, you are right on target but remember there are FEDERAL laws that if followed would solve most of it. Let’s be real…a crime is a crime..if or if not in this country legally. Our Land, Our Law, illegal entry is a punishable crime, if anyone doubts this let them try to enter someones home without permission… We need more that think like you do & are willing to push the dickens out of elected employees
