Steps to become a US Citizen
Takes over 5 years.
  • Obtain a green card. Before you can become a naturalized citizen, you need to become a legal permanent resident. This is called getting your “green card"
  • Satisfy residency requirements. You need to live in the United States for a certain amount of time
  • Meet personal requirements
    • You must be at least eighteen years old
    • You should be able to speak, write, and read in English.
    • You must be a person of good moral character.
  • Submit your naturalization application. Download Form N-400 - Application for Naturalization.
    • As of June 2017, the filing fee is $640. You also need to pay a biometric service fee of $85
On the other hand you can do this and get:
A FAIR study in 2017 found illegal immigrants are a net consumer of taxpayer benefits worth more than $100 billion a year, not including the cost of enforcing the border.
Up to 70% of immigrants apprehended at the border this fiscal year are families or unaccompanied minors claiming asylum. Unlike other border crossers, after six months asylum seekers qualify for work permits and most taxpayer subsidies. But because most are unskilled and uneducated, they earn minimum wage or less.

Almost half, according to the census survey, never finished high school. They earn 40% less than U.S.-born workers and about 50% of families live in poverty, requiring community support for food and cash for necessities. Some have sponsors, but most are usually immediate families that are not much better off.
  • Get free food
  • Get free shelter
  • Get medical care.

Well the Mexicans coming into out country illegally don't want to be citizens of the US. They are citizens of Mexico. They only want to earn money to send home.

They cost we tax payers billions each year and are invaders and should be treated as such.

Legal immigrants qualify for everything that illegals do and more. The article even notes that illegals do not qualify for benefits outside of minors. Then it goes to argue that if they get hurt at work they can go to the ER to get treated.

People want to bitch about that as opposed to the fact that they got hurt at work.

The border needs to be secured. Period

Too bad our feckless politicians would rather caterwaul about the issue, than actually solve it...

We hold these truths to be self evident, that ALL men are created equal and have certain unalineble rights, endowed by their Creator, among these are the right to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

There are no caveats in that founding principle- it's also a life philosophy which very few "Americans" share, or believe in, proving that Public Education is a joke as it isn't built on a solid foundation-

IF "illegal" immigration was really wanted to be ended- there are 2 routes to take.
First, stop making the pursuit of Happiness a crime, and secondly, use the Free Markets as intended- free is unencumbered, btw- which is he diametric opposite of centrally controlled-
But no- that means competition is acceptable but the acolytes of the Almighty Godvernment demand that competition be restricted to those favored by being born somewhere they approve of- SMH-

Its such an exercise in White Privilege to expect foreigners to go through a long and drawn out process to obtain citizenship in a country not that much better than most in Europe... OMG.. of course they should just come here whenever they feel like it. Just make the rich pay their fair share in taxes and its all good.

If you're undocumented you need a fake SS number to do any real job. If you do get a job you'll pay SS tax to that fake number and you'll never see a dime of it. That's estimated at almost $12 billion every year that goes to subsidize the US economy.
