  1. Sadly, this is the norm South of the immigrations checkpoints along the U.S. side of the border: One illegal immigrant births eight U.S. citizens that she can't support, so it's up to the U.S. taxpayers to do so!

    There's more than one octomom out there taking advantage of the system. But, she's not the only Mexican citizen hiding out within 25 miles of the border in Texas, California and New Mexico, and 75 miles of the border in Arizona. She only got caught because she needed to go farther into the interior and got caught at one of the checkpoints about 70 miles from the border on her way to Houston.

    Do you have any ideas on how to curb this type of abuse?
