Maybe deport some of the newer ones, but there are MANY of them here, most living peacefully. **************** "Muslim social scientists and researchers have spent a great deal of time trying to determine the number of Muslims in the United States. Most accept the estimate of from 5 million to 8 million. That is to say at least 5 million people in North America claim Islam as their religion and/or practice." http://www.islam101.com/history/population2_usa.html

Milt-- I very much appreciate that brevity is the soul of wit, but I address a LOT of issues with my myriad posts...generally, I get a lot of compliments and THANKS for the links to contact Congress and reference links. Many people drop by TH randomly...they do not see my repeat posts as ubiquitously as you do...but they DO influence many who rarely post, but do read.

As Milton Friedman intoned, you CANNOT have an open border and a welfare state. We had no welfare state 100 years ago when we last had massive LEGAL immigration. The secret to America's prior success as a nation formed by immigrants was INSISTING that they learn English and embrace become Americans...Hispanics do not care to. I am ALL FOR attaching Green cards to those advanced degrees we grant to foreigners. We MUST stress what emigrants can do for AMERICA, NOT what THEY might want. America is like a beautiful woman agreeing to have sex-- she MUST BE selective.

Surveyor-- Thanks for confirming what I imagined to be true...you were just being argumentative and babbling for no real purpose...just like Uncle Miltie Do you have an opinion perhaps about the topic of the column? My original retort about a top 20 college was a response to questioning my intellect...FWIW, 90% of all college students could not matriculate at my alma mater. That might not make one wise to be sure, but it indubitably assures a degree of abstract, measurable intellect with SAT's averaging 1400+ (traditional measure).

Ahh, Uncle Miltie the school marm...since your 2 posts here are as long or longer than many of mine, and add NOTHING to the topic, are YOU not a pot calling a kettle black? How is that for terse/pithy/laconic and trenchant? Again, where do you disagree on CONTENT?

Ahh, surveyor, to what exactly about my grammar or syntax do you take exception? FWIW, I am certified to teach English grammar and composition. It is generally understood among bloggers, especially in cases like TH where they cannot be edited, that a bit of license is granted to posters with respect to grammar and spelling. But perhaps you have a touch of that "posting police" mentality.

I don't know, Milt...I am pretty damm smart (top 20 college and recruited later to teach in college)! And I know A LOT about this topic. The very destiny of America's socio-economic future is likely to be determined with the passage of S 744. This issue is SO IMPORTANT that I think it arguably takes precedence over post counting policing. If you disagree with any comments, have at them...I get VERY little credible opposition, certainly on facts. And like many, you misuse narcissist...I am deeply empathetic, and form soild long-lasting relationships readily, and am not sensitive, which rules me out for narcissism prima facie. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Narcissism
(part 2) In determining welfare eligibility for non-citizens, two broad criteria are taken into account. The most general screen is the concept of "qualified" and "not qualified" alien. Generally, qualified aliens are non-citizens who have been permitted to reside permanently in the United States. They include legal permanent residents (LPRs), refugees, asylees, Cuban/Haitian entrants, and a few other categories. Qualified immigrants may be eligible for federal and state benefit programs that aim to help families with limited income and resources. Not qualified aliens (mostly illegal and temporary immigrants), by contrast, are ineligible for all except emergency benefits, a policy that was largely in place even before the 1996 reforms.
welfare legal for non-citizens? http://www.brookings.edu/research/papers/2002/02/02immigration-fix The 1996 reforms changed almost every aspect of non-citizen eligibility for welfare benefits. Although the provisions are exceedingly complex, a rough general principle provides useful guidance. With some exceptions, non-citizens entering the United States after August 22, 1996, the date of enactment of the welfare reform legislation, are not eligible for most welfare benefits, including Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), SSI, Medicaid, and the State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP), until they have been in the U.S. for at least five years. Keeping this general principle in mind, a more thorough review of the...

When Zogby polled them down in Mexico, over HALF of their 110 million mostly poor and too often ignorant said that another amnesty would make them more likely also to jump our border. The Heritage Foundation calculates that amnesty for 12 million would mean 100 million net new poor and often ignorant within 20 years, mainly due to "chain migration" of myriad relatives. http://www.heritage.org/Research/Immigration/wm1076.cfm http://www.heritage.org/Research/Immigration/SR14es.cfm La Reconquista proceeds...and the demise of what had made America great as we degrade into a Third World mess like they come from.
