Welfare Cuts

NPR is reporting that Gov. Schwarzenegger is going to cut welfare for illegals.

California Governor to Propose State Welfare Cuts

Listen to this story...

Day to Day, January 8, 2007 · California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is expected to propose a major reduction in the state's welfare funding. Families whose primary workers are in the country illegally are among those likely to be affected by the rollback. Los Angeles Times reporter Evan Halper talks with Alex Chadwick about the proposed cuts.(link)

Seems my real player didn't want me to listen to the interview so I can't really tell you much about it. The pro-illegal group (ie. most democrats) will be up in arms over this reduction of 'rights' to a group of people that have no business in this country.

This doesn't really seem like something we would see from the new 'centrist' Arnold either, but it is good news for the Americans living in California. Too many illegal immigrants are granted free rides in our system simply because of liberal fancy. The media and most left wing people concentrate on branding right-wingers and the secure border people as against immigration when that simply is not true. We are against ILLEGAL immigration, there's a world of difference in the two. This country was founded on people immigrating from one place or another to live, work and become part of this country. The U.S. shouldn't be the mother of all the world's peoples simply because their country of origin is less than perfect.

If people want to become Americans, then become Americans. The process is not easy, but well worth it. If you want to be a proud citizen of Mexico, or Cuba, or any other country, then don't do it by illegally living in the United States.

Personal note: I slept all day today (took my medication when I got home from work) so I'm probably missing alot of news out there, leave me a tip for something good to read.
