Stars And Stripes Forever: Obama's Immigration Plan

Stars and stripes forever!!!

For those of you who think that they are just going to hand out welfare checks to these people, you are mistaken. This is a path to citizenship not a golden ticket, they still have to earn their rights. Even if it did become easier for them to get a government handout I don't think many of them would take it. Illegal immigrants often work twice as hard as many Americans and they are willing to do jobs that most Americans won't.

I believe this will help the country. These people believe in the American Dream, they don't have the opportunities in their country and that is why they are here. With immigration reform making this path accessible, their money will go into the system. Between taxes and spending money on cars and houses they will only help the economy.

At this moment, it looks like there's a genuine desire on the part of Republicans and Democrats to get this done. And that's very encouraging news for Belizeans across America to get out of the shadows into the light.

Base on what you said here, I came to this country without a green card,work every day that most Americans didn't do and still aren't doing. I got my card and am still working. To date I have not gotten a welfare nothing. Oh, by the way, I paid tax too. For the record, most illegal alien pays tax and we couldn't even filed a return because we only had/have a tax ID . So Ms. Linda you are right in every thing you said. We do help the economy. Am sure all my taxes I paid and couldn't filed a claim,some American benefited from it.
