If America wants to give away free money and entitlements to any one who can walk over the border then its America who will inherit those 100mil, at the rate some are inferring the amount of illegals entering your country if true you will be outnumbered by illegals by 2050,If illegals are a bother to you you might as well either accept the illegals as your new neighbors or think about moving elsewhere in the world.
There are just as many articles about increasing the population by virtue of immigration. You should know that if government wants it to happen, it will happen, it really won't matter what the citizen thinks or want. Is Canada the exception where the government actually listens to what the citizen wants and says?

I AM elsewhere in the world and thinking more and more about what to do and that would depend on Obama/Romney. The good thing is that I am free to travel in and out of the US. I don't have to do the tunnel crawl, or the fence climb, or travel in a cargo container to do that. If Canada is the exception, I just might put it on my "list of countries to consider".
