If making it easy to be an illegal alien isn’t enough, how about offering a reward for being an illegal immigrant? No sane country would do that, right? Guess again. If you break our laws by entering this country without permission, and give birth to a child, we reward that child with US citizenship and guarantee full access to all public and social services this society provides — and that’s a lot of services. Is it any wonder that two—thirds of the babies born at taxpayer expense in county-run hospitals in Los Angeles are born to illegal alien mothers?
