I just heard on the news that trailers left over from Katrina are being given to American Indians because many are poor and have no acceptable place to live. If I remember correctly, the American Indians have been here for well over 500 years and have been given enormous tax advantages, cash and benefits like casino gambling to help them succeed.
Now compare this to the illegal immigrants coming across from Mexico. They too are dirt-poor and start with nothing. Then, within days of crossing the boarder, they are hard at work supporting not only themselves but their families back in Mexico.
Why can the Mexicans become self sufficient and the American Indians can’t. I don’t know the answer but if I were the Indians I’d be embarrassed!
