big daddy g? an ignorant bigot fool is what you are. i am half marshallese and my dads american, served in WW2 and was on a ship off the coast of ENEWETAK when the U.S dropped their BRAVO bomb. and whom died of LUNG-CANCER when he retired. i've worked with people of all races, where some i worked with lazy americans/hillbillies. but NOT once did i ever said "oh they're lazy filths". i laugh at the fact that you think marshallese are freeloaders when they don't qualify for the medicaid they pay out of their check-each week. i'm american and i don't have medicaid. uncle sam takes $200 out of my check each week, and yes its frustrating but you don't hear me complaining and whining like an idiot like you. you need to know your facts before you go and trash marshallese like that. yes some of them may be filthy but characterwise they're BETTER than selfish ignorant racist americans like you who don't like labor works and when immigrants come and take it from them they get upset. GEE!! get over it, immigrants are here to stay. you and your ancestors were once nasty immigrants yourselves so SHUT YOUR TRAP and GET OVER IT! marshallese and every other LEGAL IMMIGRANTS are here to stay whether you like it or not. PEOPLE like YOU are soon to be the NEW MINORITY!! stupid bullying other people of other races.

MONASI? advice ---> you're not making marshallese look any better sweetheart. HUSH!

Majol7 & whatever your face is that posted the last comment? YOU guys are the REASON why its soo easy for so-call "AMERICANS" like Big daddy G to bully "immigrants". remember when you say something negative about marshallese -- YOU'RE MARSHALLESE, and so is your PARENTS. therefore, your just talking about yourself.

Just for your information: Marshallese needs start thinking about how they treat their surroundings, such as picking up trash around their house/apartments, and they need to learn how to control their spitting whenever they chew tobacco (Soo disgusting). Another thing is: They should learn to not leave their children roaming around town freely in the streets/movies/jones center and let them be themselves. This is called irresponsible. This is not the islands and structure needs to be enforced just like everyone else...

Is there something being done to remedy this inequity? Historically, it appears certain services/privileges of US citizenship or legal residency, ie those listed below, were exchanged for increased Compact funding. Is anyone working on buying health services for eligible Us resident Marshallese? Looks like there may be an entrepreneurial opportunity for an HMO.5/9/11

Although many Marshallese have health insurance through their employers, they often do not enter into formal marriages, so spouses and family members may not be covered by insurance plans.
Although these people have a legal presence here, and even though they are paying taxes like everyone else, they are not eligible for some of the services their tax dollars fund.
Maybe this will answer some of your idiotic suggestions. If you don't know what there culture is like or their homeland maybe you did not study American history. You guys bombed the shit out the islands causing many health issues.

That is NOT TRUE! Have you been to their kemeems and their gatherings lately? They don't even know how to pick up their own trash. One time, at one of the Ballfield in Springdale, the janitors got upset and grossed out because they were able to see diapers,bones and trash all over the place, right after they used the field for one of their May Day Celebration event. It was disgusting, not even funny to see their filthiness around you. DISGUSTING, FILTHY PEOPLE. wHEN CAN YALL LEARN TO CLEAN AFTER YOURSELVES? TEACH YALL'S KIDS SO YOU WON'T EMBARRASS YOURSELF IN THE FUTURE. C'MON FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!!! GALLY!!

Just wondering if the Marshallese are aware of this site. They will get hurt once they find out all the negative comments posted up here. Feel sorry for them already.

I believe that us Marshellese should really thankful for such benfits that come to us cause I believe if we are still on our small islands, we would have supper for many things that we sill encountered. So why not stop the criticism and start to stand on you own to feet. I hate to see you guys winding in here just like them small kids who cannot even wipe their buds after pupping. Don't just stay home and increases the population here in Arkansas State.
