Imagine if they did- would it be safe to estimate that the illegal population would be:

1) 1,000,000
2) 1,500,000
3) 2,000,000
4) More than 2,000,000

Why don't we discuss the poor state of education/medical conditions of the illegal alien home countries???

Why don't we discuss the elitists who run the countries that keep their people as basically subjugated slaves?

And for sure lets discuss why American citizens tax dollars should pay for illegal alien education/medical/housing when their own country won't do it...

It's about time some people stop playing the blame game against America and start demanding the home countries of these illegal aliens clean up their act instead......

THEY are the source of the problem, not the American employer.........

HAHAHAHA

Why the heck do we need to patrol the world? Starting in our own back yard will resolve the issue....no work available for illegals means no illegal immigrant. You want us to go down to So. America & start telling them how to run their countries....I think not sir. Not with my tax dollars.

Let's take care of our own house first, then go from there.

Unbelievable that you can state an employer who hires illegal immigrants is not the cause of our immigation problems..

Your idea about telling our southern friends what to do will work as well as the drug war...good luck with that.

There is no work for illegal aliens, only greedy employers breaking our laws and hiring them for more profit.

Southern "friends"? Don't make me laugh.

Yeah, lets not blame the illegal aliens who break American laws, lets just blame American employers

How about we blame the greedy governments of the countries the illegal alien invaders come from?

That makes more sense......

I have always held the employers and the illegals equally guilty. It is the pro-illegals who absolve illegals from any guilt.

Not to quibble but if you read the article it says exactly the opposite of what you claim. It's allowing PRIVATELY FUNDED financial aid, not anything funded by the state itself.

There's a reason why Republicans didn't do anything to truly address this when they had the House, Senate and Presidency. There are plenty of people on both sides who financially benefit from the illegals. The problem really isn't that hard to fix. The electorate in this country on the aggregate is not very intelligent so not much gets done.
