Well for 1 the standard of living between NY and NJ are comparable enough as to not cause a mass migration from 1 state to another.
For another common language and culture. Not exactly the same but close.
Most who migrate from 1 state to another tend to have a job and living arrangments set up before the move.
Most will not become an imeadiate burden upon their new state or community the exception being those who are disabled or have children with disabilities.
Just a few examples of an obvious difference.
Those from SOB which are the immigrants really being discussed because they are the vast majority of offenders.
They do not share a common language or culture.
Immigrants tend to not speak our language nor do their children forcing us to provide translators. An added expense from the begining. Most come here with very limited if any cash on hand in the case of a crisis. Once again as a result they use our er's and never pay the bill. Hospitals across the nation are reporting this. They cant all be lieing can they?
Those who migrate state to state have already paid into federal systems and are eligible. Migrants from other countries have not.
Quite honestly there is nothing that can be compared other than the fact both groups are migrating.

Everyone is affected, some either don't realize it or refuse to accept it. When 10 % of a population are draining resources from the whole, everyone is affected.

So basically you don't care so much about immigration status, what you care about is welfare?

Where do you get that?

I thought you were really smart, at least you keep saying you are real smart.

This thread is about Criminal Illegal Aliens. I believe there are well over 30 million illegals in our great country.
I believe they are the single largest problem we have in this country.

Do poor people who are citizens drain the resources any less than poor people who are not?

I know what this thread is about. People who hide behind the "this thread is about X" gambit are almost always trying to avoid an uncomfortable conversation. What are you afraid of?

The poor people who came here, uninvited, don't belong here.

Look, you are smarter than me, so I'll use a different example.

Let's say someone breaks into my house and starts eating my food when I am on vacation. I come home, and want him to leave. He won't go, then he demands I learn his language and then wants me to take him to the doctor and get stitches for the arm he cut when he came in my broken window.

This is how I view Illegal Aliens. I didn't invite him to my house (America), he broke in anyway, and I want him to leave.

Do you have it now?

Exactly, and our country is our house/home so it is the same thing as one's personal home. We have certain rights in our own homes just like we citizens have certain rights in our own country one of which is to be protected from an invasion.
