How many of our ancestors came to this country and worked hard to become legal citizens?

Now the Obama administration wants to give illegal aliens work permits. Do they not know, or is it they don’t care about their own people? Ones who can’t find jobs. Oh, yes, I know there are a lot of people who would rather live on welfare then work. What about the ones who want to work but can’t find a job?

But that is OK. Let’s give the illegal aliens work permits, driver’s licenses, how about a new car. Oh, yes, a new home also.

I do not think so!

The Obama administration needs to take care of their own first. Let’s not forget our veterans!
