Yes - it will PL. It will impact you and your parents. The amount of taxes - income taxes and other taxes (including sales taxes you pay at McDonalds) may have to go up to fund the welfare given to illegals.

It will affect you - and everyone else - directly

Well PL, once again, you are looking only at your small geographic area.

I can tell you, for a FACT, that there are Hispanics working at the Best Buys I go to - each and every one. And, the Circuit City's etc.

Romney is our only last great hope to secure the border, end sanctuary cities and reject amnesty. That is what he's running on. If we all get behind him we've got a chance. He's the only electable candidate that is very strong on the issue now that Fred and Duncan are gone. Maybe Fred will even come on board as VP!

Or we can do away with welfare as a whole and come up with a new program that has less loop holes.

Theres only three Best Buys in my vicinity. And the Bay Area is far from being a small geographic area. I don't want to drive 3 hours to take a trip to the armpit of California (fresno area) and go to Best Buy there.

Thats great, I congratulate you on that one. I guess it gives you the "edge" on Black Friday.

What scares me about Mitt is he is a Mormon; and that church tends to be pro illegal immigrant--------if said illegals are Mormon as well.

A fast growing minority of Mormons are indeed Mexican (the Mestizo variety------not the 'George Romney' Anglo based cohort).
