It's not even remotely close to 20% of our customer base. It's more like 5-7%. I'd rather replace the illegal aliens in our customer base with currently unemployed Americans. I always put Americans first. You seem to want to put illegal aliens first. How anti-American of you.

I guess it would suck to be an illegal alien or enabler of same.

Besides: as mrbartlebee pointed out; 12 million illegals only equals about 5-7% of our economy---------tops. Especially factoring the cutoff of remittances to the former's countries.

I'm not Anti-American as much as I'm pro free market economy. I hate limitations like this one, embargos, tariffs, subsidies and the like.

I don't consider myself anti-american, although I am critical to imperfections in our system and don't take biases over disagreements with the U.S. governement and other countries, or U.S. citizens with non-U.S. citizens. This tends to cause people to label me as such.
