it is quite simple, funds from the government come directly from the taxpayer. as such it belongs to the Citizens and legally permitted residents. do the rest need help, Yes, absolutely! for this, we have churches, and philanthropists, and charities, that citizens can donate to. what the real answer should be is a fair path to citizenship, one that lets the people work legally, and safely pay their taxes. then EVERYBODY benefits!!! the latter MUST be a part of the subject of the poll, as it actually answers the need, not the anger of the conservative side.
