With all the talk of illegal aliens (I hate them too, btw, since most of the truly nice people who are immigrants are legal), I have a question. Which states are the LEAST populated with them and in the least danger of being inundated anytime soon? I know Florida, California etc are huge illegal immigrant states. So which states are not?

Where ever ain't pandering to them. Just saw in the local paper, that the town of Bellaire, OH arrested four of them on a roofing crew. Yup, illegal, turned them over to the INS, with a contracting crew out of Columbus. Lot of small towns in OH don't have them and they seem determined to not have them.

In addition the contractor had no permits, could be in for tons of violations. Typical for what happens. They avoid the normal costs and undercut the locals for work. I would be arresting that contractor big time too. The places that ain't got them are starting to wake up.

Ohio has been a bit late to wake up in the bigger cities, ain't so out in the countryside. The real problem here is not the individual illegals but the native born contractors using them. Those four might be gone, he will just get more. I would be giving him some prison time.

You're right, especially with that last paragraph. It's the contractors and other businesses that want the cheap labor who are the real abusers here. They need to go to jail, or be deported themselves. I'm not sympathetic to illegal immigrants, but when the law in this country turns a deaf ear (for the most part) and businesses encourage them to come here I can hardly blame them so much when it sucks so badly where they come from.

LoL your a fool, what, illegal aliens cant be nice peope??? If you actually new any "illegals" you would know that they are nicer then the average American...REAL TALK. The fact that you blame them for coming here for work and not American buisnesses for hiring them(for greed) makes you a hypocrite. Wouldn't you come here if you were in their situation? Don't give me that I'd do it "legally" cause thats BS. If you were making a few dollars a day and had a family to feed you wouldn't think twice about coming to America and the last thing you'd care about is taking a few bucks away from a "hard working" American cause you came here illegally.

The reason I say this is cause I understand them. Some of them can be bad people but the majority are not.

When did I say ANYTHING about business or blaming them for why they're coming?

I asked a question.

Which BTW almost nobody has answered.

Maybe no one can. I've been googling for two hours and have yet to come up with an answer. My guess is that since they are "Illegal" there are no hard numbers.

Sorry. I think it's a great question but I just can't find an answer.

Lol if you want a city that dosen't have many "illegals" well it's probably going to be a small very boring city with not much....you know......WORK. You could probably find a small town in Mississippi with not much illegals....LOL. F that though I'm comfortable around them, Cali is where it's at, but don't come bmurphy, it's not your scene thats for sure.
