Yes, by all means ... let's get back to our primary goal: bashing illegal Mexicans who massively serve, and are irreplaceable to, the California economy ...

Yeah! Better to excuse their lawlessness and make them into pets and mascots; all in the name of progressively celebrating diversity. But it shore do make them folks who believe it feel gud 'bout themselfs; superior, even!

Ya do yer master proud.

The topic is the increasing poverty rate in California and yes illegal immigration factors into it.

Illegal immigrants are "ILLEGAL" and as such should be arrested, procecuted and deported. Illegal immigrats are a major factor in many California problems. We have a process for entering the USA legally and they must follow the process. With the high unemployment rate and millions of people on public support there is no excuse for these people to not take back the jobs the illegals current have.

Interesting discussion so far and the topic of illegal immigration doesn't match the thread title.

Having said that, I know there some are trying to justify illegal immigration. So this bears asking a question: America has always been a land of immigrants, there is no question about that -- but why is it that there are those who applying for legal immigration are being denied when others can simply cross the border and then be rewarded at the end?

The state’s 2010 poverty rate rose to 16.3 percent, the highest rate since 1997 (Figure 1). More than 6 million Californians – nearly one out of six – had incomes below the federal poverty line. In addition, 2.2 million of the state's children – nearly one out of four – were living in poverty in 2010 (Figure 2).
The new data also show a sharp drop in inflation-adjusted income for the typical California household. The state's median household income dropped by $2,602 (4.6 percent) to $54,459 in 2010 – the largest single-year drop on record (Figure 3).

You need to realize that being "poor" these days is not what most people think. One third of the poor own 2 cars, for starters.

Should have had a guest worker program all this time. Most Mexicans would have rather been able to freely cross the border to work legally then return to their own country when the job was finished. Forget immigration reform - we should have temporary foreign employment reform.

Yes, but very soon the money will dry up and the poor will be cut-off and really be poor.
