The people who voted "no" either do not live in a state that shares a border with Mexico, or if they do live in one of the border states than they live in a expensive neighborhood where most illegals can not financially afford to live in.

Well, if we count how many were "illegal" before the 80's amnesty in this rolling block of looking the other way. YES. And today it's even more. Just because a certain number are a status at a snap shot doesn't mean that the coming and goings have stopped. It's like counting ants on an ant hill. It's impossible.

Even those who live in the expensive neighborhoods certainly know people who have illegal live-in maids and landscapers. They know them, they jsut pretend not to notice.

None that I know of in this neighborhood, but about 1.5-2 miles away across the Dallas city line there are tons of run-down apartments teeming with them. My suburb unfortunately can't do anything but raise hell.

You have illegal immigrant neighbors and that says a lot because Staten Island is about as far away from Mexico as it gets.

NYC is a sanctuary city. I hate that.

How can you be sure that your neighbors are not illegal Canadians?

Because they have Native American (Indio) facial features and they are always speaking Spanish. So I doubt very much that they are Canadians.

That's just the thing. Kind of puts that "stolen land" argument to rest when they are found over 2,000 miles away from the southwest, doesn't it? Maybe they need a map or a compass so they won't get lost.
