Well California is up to their eyeballs in debt and they spend an average of five billion dollars per year on illegals when you add up medical costs, lack of income tax collection from them, crime, etc... So you tell me.

Well if nothing else look at the educational cost alone, it is staggering to see what taxpayer money is used for.

On balance, there are no economic benefits to having illegal aliens in the U.S. They cost local, state and federal agencies far more money than they generate, plus much of what illegals earn is sent back to their home countries.

Let's see, urbane blight, joblessness amongst citizens, over taxing our social services, over crowding our south-western schools,.. Oh wait you ask for economic benefits didn't you? Sorry, outside of fattening GT's wallet I can't think of any.

No. The ones who whine and moan about it would not be willing to take the jobs themselves that some of these hard working people are doing. If there is a way they can get their paperwork done, then they should. * EDIT : For all thumb downs : Didn't your grandparents or great grandparents affect the economy somehow... More

OF course it does!!! At it bring no economic benefits with all. While the illegals may be here to 'work' or whatever they kids they pop out year after year are a burden to the taxpayers. They use every 'poor people' benefit they can get their hands on such as low income housing, wic, food stamps, medicare, etc... More

sadly they are depressing wages which is in turn effecting our tax base. I appreciate that people want a better life, but it's putting a real strain on our infrastructure.

Now why don't you look down to where your feet are planted. That U.S. soil that makes you take **** for granted. If not for Santa Ana, just to let you know, that where your feet are planted would be Mexico.
