In a few years, after Obeyme and his socialistic policies has finished off what once was a great industrial nation, get back to me and tell me how you like living in a nationwide Detroit.
Well Said! You might really enjoy this, it reflects what you said.

Detroit in Ruins!

I would rather live in a 3rd world country like The Philippines, than to live in Detroit.

Only about 15 million or less hispanics are legal. The rest are illegal.

Hmm, I kind of doubt that since according to the highest estimates there are about 20-30 million illegals in this country. With the Hispanic population being at 50 million according to the last census that would mean that 35 million of them are here illegally. That doesn't add up. Of course we probably don't know the true numbers of illegals here regardless of their ethnicity.

If one adds in the anchor babies even though they are citizens that number could be considered higher since they wouldn't have been born here if not for their illegal parents being here in the first place. Kind of a technicality.

I believe there are a lot more illegals than reported.

I posted an article on this a while back. I will try to find it. The article stated the numbers given were bogus.
