Whether or not you favor or oppose illegal immigration, most of the things going wrong in your life have nothing to do with them. You will not magically get a better job if illegals are deported. You will have to work hard and put effort into doing that.

Who is blaming illegals for their personal problems?

They're responsible for City, State and Federal problems. All of them financial.

What's the point of this thread?

You are wrong. They are costing money to everybody who pays taxes. And they are doing jobs that our legal citizens need.

I want to go on record to say that most of the problems this country faces today has been brought on because these people are being allowed to stay in this country. I am talking about money that we have to pay for insurance on our cars, home and medical. Taxes that pay for their housing, food, and education that is being taken from those legal citizens that are being short-changed such as our veterans.

I could go on but that should be enough to shut your mouth.

And it doesn't make you feel too comfortable going outside to your car after a man stands in front of you and angrily demands that you find him someone that speaks Spanish. Can you imagine going into a Spanish country and demanding that someone speak English to you?

We have had to put up with enough. They need to go back where they are citizens or stop demanding rights they don't have.

Default No jobs + poverty = crime

Not to mention criminal and health problems as well. They strain subsidy programs meant for citizens, and expand and exacerbate the situation with poverty in this country. The last thing this country needs is more people, particularly people with no education, unable to speak English in a culture completely alien to theirs, in a never ending shrinking job market.

I don't use illegal foreign labor because at the end of the day, you're not saving any money. Higher taxes pays for the overflow.

This is like the poster child response for why I needed to write what I write. Everybody knows that while there are negatives associated with illegal immigrants, they aren't responsible for most of the problems in this country today. Do you really think that car accidents would disappear if illegals went home?

Stop the blame game and wake up!

Oh, yes, my quality of life will greatly improve if all the illegals are gone. Where I live, they destroyed the community by creating countless flophouses filled with 20-30 people. The once good elementary school that our daughter went to now can't get full accreditation by the state due to illegals. All those flophouses translate to more traffic on the road, parking problems so bad that if we were to have company or someone coming to do work in our home, they can't even park in front of our house. Plus those flophouses put a strain on the school system---not only do they add more students than are anticipated but those students (either illegals or anchor babies) come to school unprepared and end up taking resources away from American kids.

Not to mention if you look at the big picture, our country now has over 300 million people. We are running out of potable water and buildable land. Plus our infrastructure is crumbling and there is no money to properly repair it, let alone add even more.

I'm guessing that you have never seen the problems illegals cause up close and personal. Nor do you know anyone whose livelihood has been affected by illegals.

I could go on and on. I do hope that you are starting to get the picture.
