This I will say: the reason that our unemployment numbers are 'only' ca. 8% are due to the illegal aliens not being counted. Translation; substitute US citizen/green card holder for illegal, I suspect our unemployment rate would be above 10%.

Anyway one wishes to slice it: illegals are a net liability in not only their not paying proper taxes but their mere presense here diminishes respect for law and order.
