The latest Census Bureau data reveals that most U.S. families headed by illegal immigrants use taxpayer-funded welfare programs on behalf of their American-born anchor babies, according to a public-interest group that investigates government corruption and fraud.
Even before the recession, immigrant households with children used welfare programs at consistently higher rates than natives, according to the extensive census data collected and analyzed by the Center for Immigration Studies, a nonpartisan Washington D.C.

Among the CIS findings:
The study focused on eight major welfare programs that cost the government $517 billion the year they were examined. They include Supplemental Security Income (SSI) for the disabled, Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF), a nutritional program known as Women, Infants and Children (WIC), food stamps, free/reduced school lunch, public housing and health insurance for the poor (Medicaid).

In 2009 (based on data collected in 2010), 57 percent of households headed by an immigrant (legal and illegal) with children (under 18) used at least one welfare program, compared to 39 percent for native households with children

We estimate that 52 percent of households with children headed by legal immigrants used at least one welfare program in 2009, compared to 71 percent for illegal immigrant households with children. Illegal immigrants generally receive benefits on behalf of their U.S.-born children.

Kobach introduces legislation to require that voters in Kansas show photo identification

I believe voters across the country want Voter ID..

Rasmussen Poll
82% Say Voters Should Be Required to Show Photo ID. .

Thursday, August 19, 2010

An overwhelming majority of Likely Voters in the United States think all voters in the country should be required to present photo identification in order to vote in U.S. elections.
A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters finds that just 14% disagree and think the current identification system is sufficient. Just 4% are undecided on the issue.
This is a sentiment that spans demographics, as majorities in every demographic agree that photo identification should be required to vote.

This Rasmussen poll illustrates that Voter I. wanted by the American citizens nation wide. This is not right wing it is American citizens fed up with election fraud .
.We hear in the news about groups like ACORN and allegations of voter fraud across the nation. To imply this doesn't happen in Kansas is to say that a Winter storm that starts in the Northern regions of our country some how stops at the Kansas border. .

Voter apathy is a huge problem but if a citizen chooses not to excerise there right to vote who is at fault ? I sincerely wish citizens would vote no matter what side of the political fence they are on. Kobach cleary won by a landslide I believe he has a mandate.

Republican candidate Kris Kobach rolled over Democratic incumbent Chris Biggs in the race for secretary of state Tuesday. With 2,829 of 3,315 precincts reporting, Kobach had received 431,825 votes, while Biggs had garnered 276,016.

I won by a landslide, and I clearly made stopping voter fraud my No. 1 issue," Mr. Kobach said. "I feel like I have a mandate, and I hope legislators will also see that."
Thank you so much for all of the ways that you helped make our victory Tuesday night possible. We were outspent by more than $90,000 and faced a barrage of misleading negative ads, yet we won by a 59%-37% landslide. That was only possible because of your help. Our ground game neutralized our opponent's attacks and carried us to victory.

It has been widely acknowledged that the Kansans for Kobach campaign mounted the greatest volunteer effort of any campaign in Kansas in 2010. Our volunteers were everywhere, in great numbers. Whether it was in parades, rallies, or the "clean sweep" program of the Kansas Republican Party, our volunteers consistently showed up in large numbers and brought their "A game."

The citizens of Kansas voted overwhelmingly for Kobach. I am always amazed how the liberals will always try to change the rules when it suits them. Kansas is a conservative state Kobachs election proves that. Give me 40 hours of Kobach anytime. 40 seconds of liberals is too much for me.
Like it or not Kansas is a conservative state, Kobach was voted in by a mandate. Davis has a business outside of the legislature most of these legislators do should he give up his business ?
