Illegal Aliens, Welfare, and Morals

This 56-year-old woman has defied deportation orders twice since 2004. But at her hearing this week, she was given another chance by postponing a final (?) deportation hearing until February 2, 2010. Since 2002 when she first applied for asylum, she has lived on welfare in public housing and even benefited from hip surgery in Boston -- all at taxpayer expense.

She just happens to be President Obama’s aunt. Whether or not he has assisted her financially in any way is not known.

The outrages are too numerous to even list. However, the worst problem is that situations like this encourage everyone to disrespect and disobey the law. It degrades our society’s moral fiber.

Walter Williams
has a column today which also dicusses national morality. He concludes that our welfare system is making it too difficult and "too costly to remain moral and self-sufficient. You might as well join in the looting, including the current looting in the name of stimulating the economy."
