I'm moving to a suburb of Dallas that has far fewer illegals than Dallas itself does. The taxes are lower overall but since I will still be in Dallas County, I still have to pay taxes for Parkland Hospital, where over half of live births are to illegal Hispanic women.

But at least I will get away from the loud outdoor barbecues and wolf whistles, unless the illegals decide to invade the nearby park without calling ahead first to reserve it (they never do). They do this in neighborhoods in Dallas, including very wealthy ones, and the noise they make and garbage they leave behind is unbelievable. 15 years ago it was a different story; Latinos would still have boisterous parties in local parks but they were not noisy and always cleaned up their trash (like any other American using the park). I bet the difference is that those Latinos having those parties 15 years ago were Americans and the ones doing it now are illegals.

I remember the Fox News Channel did a report awhile back about how Hispanic owned pizzeria restaurants in Dallas accept Mexican pesos as payment.

This is no longer the Dallas that J.R Ewing grew up in.

I'm tired of seeing the numbers that they cost us, the burden on our society , knowing that they are driving without a license or insurance and impacting our kid's schools.

Other than that........

I am tired of the enablers, the excuses and the idea that well since they are here we owe them a pass. But more than all that I am tired of this idea that somehow the USA owes the whole damn world a VISA.
