Perhaps more of the bulk of European immigrants settle in those areas. You can't argue with the statistics though that prove that there are more immigrants in this country both legally and illegally that are from Latin American countries.

Illegals should not be entitled from any American entitlement.

You need to show a US passport if you are Chinese, and spending US dollars in China?

Yes. Texas in fact, did a study showing just that.

An interesting thing that would happen if we up, and kick out all illegal aliens: Enjoy paying $10 for a head of lettuce.

This is a tired and old worn out false argument. Only 3% of illegal immigrants are picking crops. The other 97% are doing jobs that Americans need. The growers/farmers are passing little to nothing onto the consumer in savings. They are pocketing the profits. They in turn along with other employers who hire illegal immigrants are passing their social costs on to the taxpayer. Nothing about illegal labor is a plus for regular Americans.

Utter nonsense. The plantation owners also argued this country would collapse without slave labor. Did it?

As Oldglory stated, they do not share their savings with consumers. In fact, my grocery bills have continued to skyrocket during the past several years. Only the dimwitted would believe if illegals leave our lettuce would cost $10/head. So, save the hyperbole and scare tactics for the naive.

BTW, how did we eat prior to illegal immigration? Who picked our crops? And, how is it possible that the majority of crop pickers are NOT illegal aliens?

I would be happy to pay 20 bucks a head for lettuce if it would just keep them out of the ERs
