I think they do vote.. the Register had an article in today's paper stating that 743 non-citizens voted in an election in 1996. (yes, they say they have implemented more security...however I think it is time for and ID card) As I stated, I am an American of Hispanic descent... if people want to come here.. no problem.. just go through legal channels. I know many people that have done so.
I remember when I had to seek medical attention for my son. They called my name, and the nurse asked if I spoke "good english" I was mortified.. and my husband (anglo) said nothing since he didn't want the care for our son to suffer. When I went to give the insurance information, I was spoken to in Spanish. I went to check out, and I was spoken to in Spanish. I don't speak Spanish! I finally asked, Am in the U.S.? There are many more reasons for me being a moderate republican.. this is just one reason.
and now.. back to the respiratory system...
(how strange.. that was the very reason why my son was in the ER that night.. RSV)
Quote from Miss_Chybil
I can understand your argument for licensing. If I were an illegal, I think the only reason I would risk getting a valid license would be for all the other "benefits" I could attain from having one and not necessarily to buy insurance. Also, I hear so often about illegals being afraid to get prenatal care, etc., do they really go vote?
Honestly, I don't have a dog in this fight. If I were a Mexican and I could help my family by coming here, I would probably do it. (Actually, I'm not sure I would have the guts.) Because I would do it, doesn't make it "right," though. This argument has so many moral problems. I hope one day soon, we can all find an equitable solution for everybody.
