I wish some of you would take the time to get informed before expessing your opinion. First, do not equate 'immigrant' with 'illegal'. Even government figures show that 80-90 percent of immigrants are LEGAL. Second, to qualify for government assistance, including food stamps and such, you have to be a CITIZEN of the USA. Immigrants do not qualify, even the legal ones. Most immigrants do not qualify for citizenship, and those who do will not get it just for asking. There is a long process and it can take years. So, if the welfare system is about to go bust, don't blame it on the newcomers.
