“This is a terrible view point," one user replied.
“Makes 💯 sense. He clearly mentions kids of ‘illegal’ immigrants not immigrants who came here legally and then had kids thereafter. As an immigrant myself I think this does solve a huge blank check incentive which would cost us billions in healthcare and other services. Bold statement but a needed step," another user commented.
“I completely disagree with this policy. It is not the fault of children that their parents entered our country illegally. They have a birth right to citizenship. I would go so far to say that it is God who has given them that right. None can take that away" wrote another user.
“This would de-incentivize people from entering illegally and take the legal route, as many other immigrants do. Not a bad idea." “He might get my vote for that one reason alone," one user said
“Facts! It needs to end. He’s got my attention now. I’m tired of paying for all these illegals to live on my taxes. They qualify for 4K a month in California if they request “autism" status. Fill out the paperwork and get one pediatrician to sign it. You wonder why there’s such a rise statistically. They have to be Hispanic to get it. It needs to end. Equalize the playing field across the board. We have to pay and raise our kids on our own with no support. Why should my taxes go to your child? It’s a scam", another user commented.
