At least that's the impression I got coming here, any thoughts?

Light and spirit!

I have noticed this too Travelling Fella, curious why so many opposed to immigration seem to be women.

I never noticed a lack of male posters here who oppose illegals.

I think we need a poll.

I was looking at another thread about this just now, and I think maybe women would be more against illegal immigration because women are competing for the lower-paying jobs in America that illegal immigrants would take, where men (still true!) mostly compete for the higher-paying jobs.

Also, women are more concerned with children in general, no matter what their situation is. So, women are concerned about healthcare for their own children and don't want to pay for illegals' healthcare, and they want good schools for their children, so don't want non-English speakers coming into the schools.

I'm not a female, but I can guess why women are so afraid of illegal aliens. Women are petrified of violent crime. How many times do they have to hear about illegal aliens beating, gang raping, or murdering innocent females or children before they become concerned about the situation?

Heck, it wasn't too long ago that a poster in this very forum posted a link detailing how a young woman was gang raped by at least a dozen illegals. The very fact that illegals are willing to violate a bunch of laws of laws to work here, including: stealing a job, violating our border, stealing a Social Security number or an ID, drive without a license, and without insurance, would seem to indicate at the very least illegals have a propensity for criminal behavior.

Looks like women, because:

1. fear of violence from illegals who show their criminal tendencies

2. fear of job loss to an illegal who is competing for a low-paying job

3. fear of their children having poor healthcare and schooling because of illegals
