I should save these.
If typos make you feel smart, then hey, why not?

By the way, your first sentence is a little confusing. The 3rd sentence is a fragment sentence.

No genius. It means not everyone can afford to live in the best, safest neighborhooods.
I think you have a strange stereotype that all poor neighborhoods are dangerous and that actually is not the case.

The Bronx is a dangerous neighborhood. An illegal choosing to live in a more rural area with low crime rates would face less danger -- just as anyone else does. Look before you leap they say.

However it's pretty clear this guy was far from some holy innocent. This was nothing more than a brawl, a fight between ghetto dwellers. He is charged with attempted murder and he was using a weapon -- a drill can certainly be a weapon and from the wounds on the victim, it's obvious this illegal was doing some damage.

Yeah, just like that Pennsylvania town huh?

People arent exactly flocking to rural towns because of the job opportunities.

Urban areas are packed because there is some kind of industry. Immigrants flock to places like New York and Los Angeles because there is some kind of community there that they can fit into, and there are lots of jobs in those cities.

Now there's some irony.

Job opportunities? The unemployment rate of Mexico is signifantly lower than that of the USA. How about job opportunities for Americans? Some of these urban dwellers who if they had job opportunities would turn to crime less.

Packs of unemployed youth are a problem -- bringing in countless illegals to keep our own youth unemployed is certainly not going to solve that problem.
