Illegal aliens are not eligible for public assistance.
In 2010 illegal workers paid 13 billion into the social security system with no hope of ever collecting it.

Re: “As Trump dumps DACA, three Charleston-area Dreamers face an uncertain future

SORRY but illegal is illegal.WE,Americans, have the right to serve and protect what our elected reps should have been doing for us all along the way,but as the SORRY *SSES found ways to keep screwing us Americans,and we have had enough.
We expect for President Trump to do his job,AND- we intend to help him to bring America back to where it should have always been,and that is -ONLY with Americans being first in everything we have to offer,here.
Our USA Veterans have a priority and they are to be taken care of,100%.
What we Americans need must be of priority and this is where we are headed,and that President Trump understands what must be done, he has the guts to do the job that we elected him to do.WE TAXPAYERS have paid out our own *sses,having been forced to cover the cost of illegals and other foreigners,but this has to end.We are going to take care of US AMERICANS,FIRST.
WE,ARE AMERICAN DREAMERS,WHO HAVE BEEN AWAITING THE ENTRY OF ONE AS OUR PRESIDENT TRUMP!NOW-IT IS OUR TIME,and we expect -nothing less!
IF you came into America -illegally,this is not our fault,but you kept on sucking off of us,through our sorry *SS law breaking reps and they have theirs coming to them,too.They aided in criminal acts,and they must also pay for those crimes.
When we get to the point of being able to afford helping other countries and the people living,there, we will,but WE come first.
Stop playing this feel sorry for me thing because it does not work with those of us who demand the law be put into force,and followed.ANY attempting to bend the law,must be punished.
NO MONEY will be allowed given from our governments,to cover anything for illegals-this is what we demand.
We taxpayers have been screwed by illegals,FAR TO LONG,and the free rides are done with,so stop trying to pile in on us,in America.
We are going to be taking care of America,properly,by enforcing what always should have been,enforced,-and as for workers needed to help with crops,ect-ALL will come through here,properly,and any who do not,ALL aiding them will be punished to the MAX.
Workers come from many other countries,properly,and this is what we will accept.

Re: “Charleston History Commission grapples with reconciling Calhoun’s legacy and bigoted beliefs

Scott, how can the protest march put the student body of CofC at risk? Many students will gladly join the march. It won't put anyone at risk, not even white supremacists, it is not a riot, it is a march.

Re: “Charleston Rep. Savrinakis calls for ban on bump stocks in wake of Las Vegas shooting

liberalsoup, while we do have background checks, they apply only to some sales, like sales in a gun store. So they don't apply to gun shows, or to sales between private individuals. So a dangerous criminal can buy a gun legally and easily, for example at a gun show, he does not need to go to the trouble of buying a gun illegally on the black market. In fact, Dylann Roof bought his gun legally at a gun store, the background check was started, but it took too long, so he was able to buy the gun legally, without a background check, which he would have failed, had the background check been finished. So there are too many loopholes to the background check, where dangerous criminals can buy guns legally. So the law about the background check can then be quite useless. Is that really what you want? If that is what you want, why not then abolish the background check, and let stores also sell guns to anyone, no questions asked. So even more easy access of criminals to guns. Of course the second amendment can be interpreted that way, that the right of people to bear arms shall not be infringed. So by such an interpretation, ignoring the militia clause, the right of people to bear arms shall not be infringed by background checks either. People can all bear arms. Are criminals people? Yes, they are. Are immature children people? Yes, they are. Are prisoners people? Yes, they are. So they all have the right to bear arms, it shall not be infringed. So if we go by that interpretation, we would soon have chaos. Prisoners would engage with shootouts with the guards. Children would be shooting at each other. Are machine guns arms? Yes, they are, so the right to bear machine guns shall not be infringed. We can have more massive shootings like in Las Vegas. Well, that is what happens when the second amendment is interpreted as NRA wants it, as an individual right, instead of the right of the well-organized militia, presumably organized by the state, after all, we don't want private well-organized militias shooting at each other.

Re: “Former S.C. schools chief Zais, tapped by Trump for federal job, "most unqualified choice," Charleston education advocate says

This ultra liberal "educator" (Democrat) wouldn't like anyone Trump picks. He still has not realized, or accepted, the fact that Trump won, and Hillarious lost. And what makes him someone who's opinion is supposed to be "expert"? No , just another teacher who did not get his way last November.

Re: “Look for French cocktail bar Félix to open on King Street in November

Yeah, that's what we need in Charleston. A fancy French restaurant/bar....or another one, that is. Good luck trying to make it in this town where we see a new foodie place opening every week. Your audience is going to be a subset of a subset of a small group of special needs folks. Who is going to get you through the dead of our tourist winter? Bad timing, at best.

Re: “As Trump dumps DACA, three Charleston-area Dreamers face an uncertain future

Why is this even an issue? They should be deported, with their parents. The parents are the real criminals here - they put their kids in this position. If I rob a bank, the gov't isn't going to worry about separating my family - I'm going to jail. Let's apply that standard here, too. If they want to be here, let them apply and stand in line like everyone else. It's nice to be nice, but let's use some common sense here.

Re: “As Trump dumps DACA, three Charleston-area Dreamers face an uncertain future

Instead of blaming Donald Trump, these illegals should be kicking their parents in the ass for putting them in this position. The solution is for them to return to their home country and enter the US legally. I'm all for them being here IF they are not gangbangers, on welfare and otherwise a drain on our economic systems.

Re: “How have Pepe-posting meme warriors responded to real violence of the alt-right?

What real violence of the 'alt-right'? The neo-Nazis aren't alt-right any more than the radical people's worker's party of nutjob communists are alt-left. Both fringes are kooks and not representative of anything within the mainstream of American politics.
