but you must remember the pro-illegals keep telling us all... don't worry, it won't get that bad... out of the 20 million illegals that had snuck in from mexico.. only half are gangbangers or rapists, or child molesters, or murderers, or thieves. And the other half of illegals only want to steal your job, or have some anchor welfare babies, or anything else they can get for free! So not all of them are bad.. thier just criminal illegals, that's all.

Doesn't anyone want to acknowledge the fact that the immigrants from ellis island turned parts of New York into slums? So this doesn't surprise me at all.

If I'm not mistaken, the whole West and Mid-west of the U.S was basically only inhabited by Native Americans and very dense population back during the Ellis Island immigrant days of 1982-1954. Compared to the population then, and the immigrant ratio, we're not too far off. Don't forget 12 MILLION immigrants went by those doors.

I'm comparing the effects they both had on the U.S economy. You said yourself they turned some cities into slums. One would think you could grasp a concept for 10 minutes
