Legal immigrants most certainly have the right to complain when those who skip the lines and acccepted procedures demand things from them. Native born Americans have every right to join them.
Myth after myth after myth.

Over 60 percent of Americans prefer a solution with a citizenship path whether with or without further enforcement. Under 40% prefer an enforcement only approach. Note that a large minority would be sufficient to defeat an enforcement only proposal.

That article also points out that less than 40% support a constitutional change for birth right citizenship. That would need well more than a majority to ever happen.

Births are far greater than immigration from 2000 to 2010...conveniently not present in your chart.

AZ and FL heavy in Service Industry? they have little service industry compared to NV. AZ and FL are both farming dominant states. As I stated in my first comment, the economy plays a smaller role in these states than it did in NV.
