take care of your citizens first

You have got to start taking care of the poor in America before spending billions on illegal immigrants. I find it crazy that all you politicians that live in gated communities are so quick to pass laws and grant amnesty when you clearly have not been affected by it and know nothing about the harm it has and is causing us stuck in the middle of it. Come live with me for a week and see if you feel the same way. I am on SSD and can't get any housing assistance, no energy assistance, no dental assistance, by the way is desperately needed. Why you ask? Because there are no funds left for those of us that need critical help. My teeth are crumbling so I haven't been able to eat solid food for two years but yet we have billions to help people that aren't even suppose to be here. Do you really think that they need food, medical, the cost of courts and housing more than I do? I am a citizen that worked hard until my health wouldn't allow it anymore, was declared disabled but couldn't get medical assistance for two years, When I finally got it finding a Dr was a whole other issue on its own. I live in apartments that there are only a few of us that are not Mexican. They harass my grandchildren when they walk through trying only to make their way to my apartment. The ones that have not earned the right to be here overall act like my family and I are the intruders, its a slap in the face. I go to the store with what little I have for groceries and watch Mexican families that don't speak English with two and three carts full of food and pay with a food stamp card. How is it I can barely survived after working in this great country but the ones working under the table and collecting food stamps, housing assistance and don't even try to get along with those of us that have legal right to be here can? Please justify this to me. I will be waiting for your response.
