California may carry the brunt of the illegal immigration crisis and be the most liberal, but it still has the strongest economy of any state and is on par with other first world nations. Basically, it would be in the top 10 largest economies if it were its own nation.

What are you trying to say ???

Is ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION O.K., since we are a first world nation ??

Do our laws not apply anymore since we are a first world nation ??

Does a first world nation have major hospitals in major cities close because the medical bills go unpaid by Illegal Immigrants, wow, sounds great, lets just raise taxes again to open them back up.. Maybe next year we can start a new tax bracket to penalize all the hard working legal folks in our first world nation, we can call it the " Work more to pay for Illegals tax" because our taxes are no where near high enough yet.. THEN, when that new tax is not enough to continue meeting the demand, just raise it, no problem...In fact, everytime we need to support another country, or Illegal People in our's, let's just raise taxes to meet the demand...

Come on, let's be serious, we can debate this thing until we die. Illegal is Illegal... Send them back, make it impossible for them to get welfare, SSI, health care, etc.. I am sorry if they are sick, but it is not our problem, they should not be here in the first place. I am sorry if they need a place to have their babies, but why should we pay for it ??? How about this. If an Illegal comes to America (Illegally of course) and has a baby, we will pay for the whole tab, including the sterilization of the Mother, before we send them both back.. Not Humane you say ?? How humane is it to be forced to shut down hospitals that our people are dependent on, because Illegals are not paying for their services recieved ?? Let me know when you have the hospital you go to in Orange County close down because they are financially ruined by Illegals.. Probably won't happen for awhile but trust me, it will eventually... It get's a little worse everyday, and eventually will reach you. I know it is hard for you to believe.. I do alot of work in Huntington Beach, and it is still VERY White & Oriental there, but it will reach you eventually...

Dir Drill, it's all sounding like the same old anti-illegal rhetoric baloney.

"You think it's ok to break the law."
"There stealing from Americans."
"They are felons and should be deported."
"They don't want to assimilate into American Culture."

Only since oil prices went up. If oil prices fell, you'd be back where you were. Texas doesn't have a very diverse economy. Florida has the same problem.
