And pay absolutely nothing back into the system?
Is that how it is? UNQUOTE
MOST of them work...not all. SOME pay some kind of tax, but MOST don't. A FEW pay electric, water, gas bills IN THEIR NAME but MOST live 20 to a house or apartment and share the rent and rest of the expenses so there is more to send back home. Just as they pool their money to buy with cash an old clunker/pickup and only ONE has the driver's license (probably uninsured) and the title.
They ALL receive social assistance, health care, schooling...a LARGE number commit crimes and clog the judicial system.
I suspect that you are totally unaware of how rampant the situation has become in the farming communities....and with the Xmas tree growing industry to actually have 'bunkhouse' type housing available for entire 40-50 (or more) people crews and that these people actually come back and forth from state to state (not country to country) depending upon the season.
Granted...there are SOME goods being purchased, such as gasoline, food, etc. but most of them actually shop for their clothes at our local Goodwill because they know their clothes will be ruined by the end of the season anyhow.
My son was in a gas station in Manassas not long ago, when four Mexican men came in all talking in Spanish....the clerk was also Spanish and refused to serve any of the four because they refused to speak English....and threw them out of his station. When Derek asked him why, the clerk said that the men were all talking about how every dime they can send back to Mexico was going into a special family savings account because within ten years they can retire and go back home and never work again.
This is the mentality of a word of mouth society living among us...they get here any way they can, take whatever they can, and then go home to live like kings and brag about what suckers we 'gringos' are. The clerk is a legal citizen of the USA and even tho he originally CAME from Mexico, he was insulted and ashamed of his 'own' people enough to give them the heave-ho.
The little bit any of them contribute, I can personally live without, thank you very much. I would gladly give up $100 per month of my social security check to help pay for their one-way ticket back home...and I suspect many others would, too. It beats hell out of increasing our taxes permanently forever to pay for them to stay here, and increase in THEIR numbers.
