What fact are you trying to show me? I read the articles and i didn't see any fact. Is it that hard to point out what the fact is?

Fyi, the opinion of Stewart is not a fact.

The FACTS are that crime dropped 19% in the county that enacted 'tough-on-illegals' legislation, while crime rose 22% next door in a county that acts as a de-facto 'sanctuary' for those same illegals.

The rest IS just an opinion, albeit an opinion held by many more than one person. As a sentient being you are invited to draw your own conclusions.

I'd be interested in hearing what those might be, BTW.

You don't have to believe the reports. I live in the DC metro area, and can see with my two eyes what's happening. I also have friends living in both Prince William and Fairfax counties, and it is clearly evident WHY crime has decreased in PW while increasing in Fairfax; both previously low-crime areas.

Likewise, I see the transformation of previously nice middle-class neighborhoods in Maryland that have been ravaged by crime, gang graffiti, cars parked on lawns, rampant loitering, so-called day laborers hanging around Home Depot parking lots disrespecting women and young girls entering or exiting the stores.

Donít tell me things havenít changed. I grew up in the DC metro area, and I know how nice certain areas were prior to this invasion.

Benicar, the illegal-lovers on here don't believe anything we see with our own eyes.

This shouldn't be news at all. When a large group of immigrants inhabits a new area, there tends to be problems. History shows us the exact thing happened when immigrants from Europe inhabited New England. History also shows us that when the first cuban immigrants arrived in America crime sky-rocketed. The fact that these were legal immigrants didn't compensate for the fact that did cause problems.

I don't think 20 million Irish arrived at once. It took over 100 years.

The 12-20+ million illegal aliens cannot be compared to "legal" immigrants. There's a HUGE difference between invited guests and burglars. Learn the difference.
