All of the above but the financial burden the tax payers bear while certain industries get rich off of them is the biggest one.

It was hard to chose just one. While illegals sense of entitlement coupled with a two tiered legal system frustrate me no end, in the end I would have to say that our governments aiding and abetting of this criminality has me the most upset. After all, the pols are not doing this out of any sense of compassion. Rather they are looking the other way money and votes. They have sold us out in favor of the businesses and lobbyists that they are in bed with. And yes, that disgusts me and enrages me.

Agreed. This poll can't really be voted on, since the true scope of illegal immigration is much larger that just what is listed. As you've stated above, the Federal governent's unwillingness to deal with this issue, combined with the lack of a major public outcry for the citizens of our nation truely anger me. I'm aware of many people on this thread that do want to find a way to deal with illegal imigration, but I just can't understand how so many people out there just don't seem to notice this problem, (or care).

What upsets me the most is the fact that the American citizens sit idly by while all of this is happening and has been happening. It is time to take our country back by any means necessary.

It is coming................it is coming.

As you are aware: it takes a lot to enrage an Anglo-Saxon based culture; once we are pissed off-----------I pity anybody in our way. BTW: despite my actual ethnicity-----------I self identify as a WASP.

Witness England during WW II with them telling Hitler to go to hell-------and, the mad Nazi backed down.

Well, I voted "entitlement" (entitled to ignore the immigration laws, entitled to be treated differently than US citizens, entitled to speak their own language wherever they want and have their children speak it in schools, entitled to government assistance, entitled to American jobs, entitled to identity theft).

I would have voted for all of the options...

Hello people!
I've got a question: are you talking about Hispanic immigrants or all kinds of them? And as I understood it's ALL about illegal immigration?

Its about all kinds. The hispanics get the most attention because they constitute 50% or more of the problem.
