That's a really good question. In my previous town, the elderly owner of a 3 bedroom house died, leaving everything to a nephew who sold it quick.
Next thing we know there's three families living in the house who don't speak a word of English. They may or may not have been illegal, but I'm betting they are. But they do own that house and ten years later the house is in bad shape. Very sad to see.

What are "non criminal citizens"? These are NOT citizens. How many times do we have to tell you? Only offense? Let's see now. We have rapists, murderers, drug dealers, cartel members, ID thieves, etc. ad nauseum. And, those who are "undocumented"? They entered the US illegally which I know is not a felony but should be.

100 parents for 500 kids? 5 kids each? Way to skew and screw the rest of us.

It's about illegals, but it appears they're no longer being referred to as either illegal aliens or the more recent "correct" term - undocumented immigrants.
They are now "immigrants" just like those who take the time and go through the paperwork to be able to call themselves an immigrant.

Their money is still green.

Illegals that have assimilated to the point that they own a house or a business? No sense in deportation at this point unless they commit a crime. Now seal the damn border!
