Are you referring to a specific illegal immigration reform proposal? If not, what do you have in mind when you are referring to reform of illegal immigration laws?

Would they continue to boom or would they fizzle out and North East cities and midwest cities rise again.

Would Cities like LA, San Diego, Phoenix, Las Vegas, San Antonio, Dallas, Houston, Atlanta, etc shrink, while Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit, Philladelphia, Pittburgh, Baltimore etc regain the top ten positions
LOL...this is funny.

So Mumbai is a better place to live than Cincinnati just because it has way more people?

I'll take a small high income city that is safe and has great infrastructure over some 3rd world mega craphole any day.
