Illegal immigration is HUGE outside of CA too. In fact, it is pretty bad in NC.

why not just say "theres alot of hispanics there" which is what you intended on saying anyways

freakin racist hicks THIS COUNTRY WAS BUILT ON IMMIGRANTS

i sure as hell dont wake up in the morning before work and say "wow its gonna be a tough day to get through with all these illegal immigrants here"
I don't believe this is the correct forum but I will say this: they effect our lives daily. How much is your health insurance these days? Mine is through the roof and why? Because of illegals, not immigrants. Yes, our country was built on immigrants, NOT ILLEGALS.

It's a known fact. Illegals, with no insurance, flood the er's. Who is paying for it? That's all I'll say about the subject because there is a forum for it.

I can't comment on the subject anymore. But as for Ca being part of Mexico way back? Who cares? It's the USA.

Very true! Why does Mexico still think California belongs to them? Get over it, there is far more things to worry about than who is supposed to own which state. Mexico envies the U.S. anyways. I never hear of hundeds or thousands of americans sneaking over the border into Mexico everyday. Hmmm wonder why?

As someone else said it does affect the cost of so many things in our daily lives. They were saying there is about 12 million illegals in our country right now. Imagine how many of them drive. I'm sure that if they weren't driving here we would see gas at least 10-50 cents cheaper because there wouldn't be such a demand.

Idk what else to say. Sorry to get off topic here.

I would still choose North Carolina over California.

mmmm, apparently all those illegal immigrants and gangs somehow make San Jose a MUCH SAFER place to live than Charlotte.

Please don't believe all the stupid stereotypes the uniformed and ignorant make about CA.

San Jose is WAYYYY SAFER than Charlotte, NC. Charlotte's crime rate is well over DOUBLE and almost TRIPLE that of San Jose's. SJ's City-Data crime index is around 260 while Charlotte's is around 690. San Jose is one of the safest big cities in America, so you might want to think about that too.

Hmmmm. CA or NC?

NC. Your dollar goes a lot further there and its just as beautiful, but you dont have to deal with 35 million people, 1/2 of whom arent even legal. lol
