Educate me on the benefits of illegal immigration. The only benefit that I see are lower prices and some restuarants that I don't feel welcome in anyhow. So for those who are pro-amnesty or pro-illegal, how does illegal immigration help make the U.S. better?

Good luck getting a real answer from pro-illegals. Basically all you'll hear is how poor and how they want a better life.....

I don't see how they do benefit anything.

Poor people in absolute poverty, helping both themselves and sending money back home. 30 million poor people, being sufficiently taken care of in all walks of society! Take a trip south of the border, it will make you thankful for what you own. Even Todo can travel there!

Copy, Paste. Does your neighborhood resemble this?! This is kinda why they come here, to escape poverty. Once you visit the border first hand, and you hate illegal immigrants to your stomach, I guarantee you will eat your own words. Guaranteed!

You know dusesean, if you're so concernced about the "poor people in absolute poverty" (cry me a river) then why don't you move to mexico and advocate for human rights??
Maybe you need to open you're eyes a little and see what they are doing to this country. Have you read the article chloedog posted in another thread? How do you explain away that one mr. bleeding heart.

What kills me is we have 43 million americans that are poor. Alot living in cold shacks with no food ,water, electricity hungry kids. There is no excuse for why illegals are given so many things yet so many of our own still suffer. There is not alot of press about our own poor, they are forgotten. As americans we should be ashamed that this is allowed to happen here.
