Therein lies the biggest problem. The internet and word of mouth has turned our home (America) into the equivalent of a get rich quick scheme. The reality shows, and multimillion dollar entertainment industry has the entire planet irrationally believing that everyone who comes to America is guaranteed the potential of becoming rich or at the very least living happily ever after courtesy of our tax dollars.

If they are here LEGALLY, then that's fine, if not, they need to go back to China.
