How is an illegal immigrant deported from the US?

DeportationsIt used to be a fairly lengthy process. Because of the new immigration laws put in place by Homeland Security/Congress the deportation process is in most cases quite rapid. Usually the local authorities take the person into custody and hold them for the INS, who transfer them to a federal detainment facility. Not a prison/jail unless the person has committed a crime other than illegal entry. Border guards now have "deportation authority" as do some other federal entities. Regulations are very strict, now and many civil rights organizations are protesting the lack of "due process" for illegal immigrants. Meaning the court hearing, appeals, etc are often waived or speeded up, depending on the situation.

Where can you find information on Charles Cullis and late 19th Century Protestant social welfare?

I did some work on Charles Cullis for my own dissertation. You might find the material useful. It is contained in my book E.W. Kenyon and the Postbellum Pursuit of Peace, Power and Plenty, Scarecrow Press, 1997. In particular, I believe that he is the founder of the modern bible college movement. Many folks give credit for this to A.B. Simpson, but Simpson was simply following Cullis' model.

Can child welfare take your son away for reasons relating to the person you are dating?

Child welfare, or child protective services, can take your child away for many reasons relating to who you may be dating including domestic abuse, child abuse, a criminal record, record of child abuse or molestation, drug use etc. When a parent is not acting in the best interest of the child and not maintaining a safe and stable environment the authorities can and should step in and act on behalf of that child. It's their job.

What constitutes felony welfare fraud?

Wow. That's really complicated because every state has different welfare laws. Any time you use the word 'felony', it's not good! It may become a felony because of the amount of money the state is trying to recover from you. They must think there is something untruthful about your claim. All I can say is two things: #1, get a lawyer and #2, they probably have all the proof they need already. Why would they accuse someone without having something to go on? Good Luck!

Can you get welfare for your baby if you are a pregnant teenager?

Yes, you can go to your local welfare office and apply for medicaid, food stamps and other benefits. I'm sure you can do this without your parents help.

You might want to consider getting some help from the father--after all, it's really his responsibility, along with yours, rather than the taxpayers. If he refuses to help, take him to court (get a DNA test if necessary) and a court order for child support.

thats not true anymore if a young girl gets pregnant its her parents or other family members that are willing to help take care of the baby and welfare also go by the income your parents make if they make too much you may not get help but it would be another story if your parents kicked you out then welfare would help

ABSOLUTELY!! There is welfare for pregnant teens. My friend is on it now with her 5month old son brandon.

If you are underage and living with your parent(s), or any legal guardian then THEY are responsible for you and your child. Unless you are an emancipated minor, or over the age of 18 then you will most likely get denied unless your parents don't work or their income meets the guidelines. Once you turn 18 you can apply and they will most likely give you the benefits but they will also open a case/issue a court order for child support for the baby's father. CHANCES ARE, you'll have better luck going to the father for child support, or you can find a job as well. It's not impossible! Don't think about what the taxpayers say, think about your child... one day you'll want to tell them how hard you worked and the lengths you have gone to support yourself and your baby. Good luck

What are the pros and cons of welfare?

The pros are that you will have some financial aid when you most need it, to help with household expenses, food, clothing and shelter, this is what it is meant for, until you get back on your feet and have the capability to earn a living again. The cons are that some people use it as a way of life and can soon be seduced by the fact that I do not need to work for minimum wage when I can get the same amount of money for doing nothing, this of course is an extreme, but sad to say, there are people who fall into this trap, and one of the worst things about this happens in social housing, where people can remain for decades and then the children also face the danger of growing up and thinking this is the only life there is, and so the cycle continues

Welfare: Good or Bad? Welfare can be good, and allow a single mother get back on her feet. However, many people abuse the welfare system and simple have children so they can continue to receive more money for a longer period of time. The needs of the children should always come first. Therefore, welfare is doing some good by providing children with food and shelter. But, is welfare really providing children with food and shelter? If a single mother on welfare used only her monthly welfare check she would be in debt by at least $50. However, that would be only if she used to money on food and shelter. That does not even include other necessities, such as clothing, furniture, transportation, soap, etc. In my opinion, welfare is doing more harm than good, but the choice is up to you.
