Look, finding the information is not difficult. I'll make it easy for those who are having a tough time of it:
1. Type Google into your browser.
2. When Google appears type : 'Impacts of Illegal Immigration' in the search box

Here is the very first site that you will see: IllegalAliens.US-Impacts (Negative impacts of illegal immigration)

Now, don't get me wrong, you will need to actually read the articles, stats, etc.

Why are we even debating this? We all know that illegal immigration is a HUGE problem. Those who have already made up their minds are not going to change their way of thinking, no matter what! My thoughts are that as a whole we need to accept that there is a problem, decide what to do about it, and fix it. I have spent countless hours searching for information that disproves my beliefs but really, all you have to do is turn on the TV and watch the news, or Americas Most Wanted, or go the FBI's website to know that a disproportionate amount of crimes are being committed by illegal aliens. I would prefer that everyone was law abiding. That everytime my 11 year old daughter goes outside to play I would know that she is safe. That I could head off to work every morning and know that my wife and kids are safe at home and that another home invasion robbery hasn't claimed my family. But in the real world you have to accept the facts and as my grandfather used to say "Hope for the best, expect the worst". Because that is reality.
And why turn something like this into a race issue? Illegals come from many different countries. While most of them are from Mexico I am not advocating that we only deport them, we need to deport all of them!

No one is saying that there are not serious offenders who are here illegally. Serious crimes should be dealt with the appropriate level of punishment.

However, you seem to be implying that they must all be serious criminals just because they have committed a misdemeanor crime in crossing the border. Jaywalking is also a misdemeanor crime, and anyone who jaywalks is also an illegal in that instance.

I am not debating the fact that illegal immigration can be a non-huge problem. I am debating the fact that it is public policy that is the huge problem. We would not have an illegal immigration problem for you to complain about if we had better public policy that used normal market forces to discourage illegal forms of migrant labor participation.

I read a sad story about an Englishman; Felipe Fernández-Armesto who was picked up for jaywalking in Atlanta......apparently; it is not illegal in Great Britain. Cultural difference and Felipe got snagged. Oh well.
