  • Yes, they can get wic and food stamps too!
    my friend is illegal and has a legal husband and TECH she isnt legal yet but because she is married to a US citizen she can get state aid health insurance and food stamps and WIC-
    I do know there are insurance companys that will insure illegals cars, so they prolly would insure there health too!
    its stupid!

  • Well when you go to Mexico you can purchase Mexican car insurance, so why shouldn't they purchase it here?

  • Yes. I worked at a factory where I was literally the only white person there, the rest were Mexican temps who were all illegal aliens. They told me 1 by 1 in confidence how they got to America and how they made themselves seem like citizens. There are women (and men) out there who will take money and then marry these people, there are people who will sell them social security cards and birth certificates. 1 man's ID said Pedro but his paycheck said Javier and his real name was Armando lol. They all had drivers licences and some would get pulled over for speeding or whatever and the cops couldn't tell. They got insurance just like anyone else would, they lied their way into being citizens. The only way they'll get caught is if someone really really does some investigating.
