New citizenship – strike lottery!

Becoming a new citizen here is as good as striking lottery. The first thing they are going to receive is the GST rebates and maybe new Singapore shares when they are given out. Next, a bigger bonus will come from HDB. First time buyers will be entitled to a $40k grant. Tiok beh pio ah!!! And more govt subsidies in hospitalization and medical bills. Wow, bee tang! Membership has its privileges. What have new citizens contributed to the nation to be entitled to the full benefits of citizenship? Below is a petition to Obama that is circulating for signatures. SOCIAL SECURITY CHANGES It does not matter if you personally like or dislike Obama. You need to sign this petition and flood his e-mail box with e-mails that tell him that, even if the House passes this bill, he needs to veto it. It is already impossible to live on Social Security alone. If the government gives benefits to 'illegal' aliens who have never contributed, where does that leave those of us who have paid into Social Security all our working lives? As stated below, the Senate voted this week to allow 'illegal' aliens access to Social Security benefits. Attached is an opportunity to sign a petition that requires citizenship for eligibility to that social service. PETITION for President Obama: Dear Mr. President: We, the undersigned, protest the bill that the Senate voted on recently which would allow illegal aliens to access our Social Security. We demand that you and all Congressional representatives require citizenship as a pre-requisite for20social services in the United State s.

"What have new citizens contributed to the nation to be entitled to the full benefits of citizenship?"

This is a potentially contentious criterion because contribution varies across individuals.

We need to consider, for instance the length of residency during which an individual has been gainfully employed/contributing to the country before taking up citizenship.

If "contribution" is defined as only monetary, then what about young citizens who are born but not yet employable and not contributing? They still get the same goodies. Is it fair just because they are born citizens?

If we are not careful, we might well be shooting ourselves in the foot with such criteria.

From the beginning its been previous administrations ultimate fault that illegal immigration has never been retired. Years of neglect and intentional overlooking of the laws that were in place? It's grandiose excuse to allow the 20 million plus illegal immigrants to stay on American soil. Congress when enacted the Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) of 1986 has been flagrantly ignored. The IRCA toughened criminal sanctions for employers who hired illegal aliens, denied illegal aliens federally funded welfare benefits, and legitimized some aliens through an amnesty program–EXCEPT THESE LAWS NEVER WERE ENFORCED?

There has always been complicity since the earliest days, between the lawmakers, big business, the open border zealots and radical pro-immigration and anti-American sovereignty organizations. Just like the Globalist they have an attitude that American taxpayers should accommodate every illegal family, with free medical care, schooling and a comfortable prison cell, for criminals and for the thousands of illegal alien drunken drivers every year. That globalist agenda has always been a free movement of cheap labor, between all of South America, Canada and Mexico, just as secretly arranged with the 3 countries leaders in Waco, Texas, at the end of March 2005.

Americans only forceful action is to build on E-verify, but not to replace it? Sen. Charles Schumer, D-New York and chairman of the Senate Judiciary subcommittee on immigration wants consider up-grading the application, with modifications to authenticate the employee’s identity by using a specific and unique biometric identifiers? Schumer, stated "improving employment verification is critical to boosting public confidence about curbing illegal immigration, which will build support for comprehensive immigration reform." These politicians just don't get it? Outside of the American Civil War, there will be a battle over giving illegal immigrants a path to citizenship free-ride? What about the millions of people with integrity and believe in the Rule of Law, who sit and wait in far off foreign countries for an entry visa?

Whatever the outcome it will not be easy to pass any Immigration reform or AMNESTY? Say--NO-- because it going to cost trillions of dollars (with a T) in enactment. Health care, Pensions, retirement and a rush on government benefits, for those who haven't already cheated the system. Then they will want their immediate families here? And waiting millions will swarm the open areas of the sovereign border fence? IT WILL NEVER END? Call your Politician today at 202-224-3121 GOOGLE---NUMBERSUSA, AMERICANPATROL for facts, that will not be found in most press releases.

As a Independent voter, I do believe in a alternative government medical system, but I adamantly disagree on donating my taxes from public treasuries free health care to anybody who steals across our border or anything that smells of AMNESTY?

hi Brittanicus, welcome to the blog. may i suggest that america welcome all and sundry as citizens. among them will be potential entrepreneurs and supertalents. and america has abundant land and resources to provide for these people. just kidding:)

we are a very small island and we are cramping it with more new citizens. and theoretically it is good for us, to keep the economy turning, more talents, keep the people competitive, and more contributors to our cpf scheme. without the new citizens this cpf scheme will grind to a halt. it needs more and more contributors to form an ever bigger base for the pyramid. we are very grateful for all the new citizens coming in.

the question is how many white mice can one put into a cage before they start to eat each other up.
