Thsi statement makes one wonder how much you care about AMERICA!! I see you are part of our PROBLEM. Because, you don't care what they do, as long as they do the jobs YOU don't want to do!!

The reason why California has slid in the past few years, traffic congestion/commute time, overpriced homes, run down neighborhoods and poor schools. These are not produced by illegal immigrants. except for children having the inability to speak strong English in public schools. Most homes were built in the 40's and 50's, they need remodeling. The high populations consists of job opportunities. The congestion caused by 36 million people who reside in the state, fourteen million more than any other state. The overpriced homes from willing buyers who desire the weather, a proffesional job, and an upscale community. Their are blacks, whites, latinos, and asians in Los Angeles County who have members involved in gangs and are in prison, and degrade the community around them. Their are illegal immigrants who are involved in gang activities and degrade communities, but their the only ones taking cheap shots. Where might you live? If I post immigrant statistics, you folks will show a confirmation bias towards your own opinions.
Wait until you own a home and people move into the neighborhood and throw trash around and play music lound all hours of the day. Your yard is the only one on the block that is clean. You go to sell and nobody wants to live in your Hispanic overrun neighborhood and all that you have invested into your home is worth NOTHING.

So, you sell just to leave the neighborhood with nothing to afford the next home.. What kind of America do you invision when your 50?

Good luck and you can thank yourself and people like you for feeling sorry for people that really could care less about your old age and they are retired in Mexico living off your Social Security.

Want to play the race card? OK. If there were 12 million illegal aliens from Japan, South Korea, Singapore and Hong Kong here in the US I doubt that this illegal immigration forum would even exist. How about people from India? I don't see them lined up to collect govt handouts.

AndreaBeth, two up above lies the answer of why I won't bother with statistics. The typical rant and an instigated flame war. Besides, my stats would be from websites you would discount.

Exactly! You know this country was based on accepting everyone
..... maybe we should remove the Statue of Liberty??? As far
as the orignal poster... It obviously was tongue in cheek but
he knew he was opening a can of worms and is probably sitting
back amused.

I can care about America and not be concerned about 10 people to a household and Mexican Flags hanging from homes. You can't do Menial Jobs in California, your chances are very slim of living in a positive community.

Why do you care so much if they pay taxes or receive Social Security Benefits, they probably don't even earn a fifth of your income, and they are paid very low wages. They make much less than you when it's all said and done.

Because I pay for the entirety of their social services which other citizens and I do not receive ourselves, taxing us middle class Los Angeles residents deeper and deeper into the working poor category. All illegals' lifestyle choices here are predicated on a criminal mindset, that of deliberately breaking an important Federal law, and to think that there are those who must be pro-criminality themselves who want to reward them!

You can't rationalize perpetual lawless behavior, which is what "getting away" with breaking U.S. laws fosters. ALL other peoples from other countries have gone the legal route to become U.S. citizens: it is mind-blowing to think that you excuse our present day illegals from just the one part of the world.

There cost of living in Mexico were they plan to retire is not like our cost of living and they are using more resources then, we can supply when they come my the millions. We need regulations and time in between where U.S. doesn't take immigrants.

A lot don't even respect what we are doing for them. When ordering food in an all white establishment they very will know white people don't speak Spanish for the most and they are now expecting people to speak there language. My son watched 5 construction workers sit down and order in Spanish, the 20 year old kid had no idea what they wanted and they were getting mad because, he couldn't speak Spanish.
These are not the only cultures that will not assimilate the Asian have done the same and we also, have Muslim communities.
Whats wrong with coming here speaking English and flying the American Flag?
