I guess I'm gonna hafta watch these snowbirds a lot more carefully!

Well, no one asked them to cross the state border into our state. As far as I'm concerned, you're an invader if you come from anywhere else and move here. For them, it's a temporary situation, so they don't contribute any tax monies. They pay taxes back where they come from, even while they're down here, but we get bupkes.

An American is allowed to travel into any state they wish as a citizen of this country, so no they aren't invaders. Snowbirds spend a lot of money in the states they vacation in, so yes they do contribute tax monies to those states. What is your problem? You're getting off topic here. This forum is about illegal immigration, not our citizens.

Sales tax, perhaps.

I'd advocate 50 separate Disunited States myself. If you come from another county--you're not welcome here.

I don't care if you live on the other side of the bridge, people need to stay out of my neighborhood unless they have business there.

If you live in Humboldt Park, you shouldn't be moving to Cicero--or vice versa, You could conduct business, but those people don't want you there otherwise.

They still pay FEDERAL taxes dude. Can you move to someplace they won't bother you that's still local? Watch out for those blue-hair drive bys

Not if they come from Canada. They pay federal taxes in Canada.

Maybe you can work out a mordida with them, possibly some good over the counter stuff?

One of the reason Canadians invade is that everything is cheaper in the U.S.

Except maybe medicine.

Food costs more, alcohol and cigarettes cost more. So they come here where it's cheaper. I'm not racist in my approach to immigrants. I don't even want those from another county (not country, COUNTY) coming here.

Perhaps a cave in the side of a mountain might interest you?
