You're welcome Lita.
Don, talking about "laws and lawmakers," have you heard of the Seattle welfare recipient finally having her home raided after living there for nearly ten years?? Here's the thing: she lived in a waterfront house worth more than a million dollars!
My mom works for welfare and she wrote a letter to our state senator about the majority of her clients driving brand new BMW's but still request for more assistance. Our neighbor is an undocumented worker who is receiving welfare assistance after claiming that her boyfriend left her with a child... she has been married with this 'boyfriend' and they now own three brand new cars. All the cars have been fully paid by cash and she doesn't have to work at all. As long as he works, they are living like this Washington state welfare recipient. If the government was smart, all they need to do is look at the applicants' tax returns. I know this isn't a social worker forum but this is insane!
This also happens in the hospitals nationwide! As long undocumented workers have no contacts in the country, they get proper medical treatment and leave the bill to the government. But if you are a hardworking American citizen, medical treatment costs you an arm and a leg. Literally.
