I think the burden of proof is on you if you cannot draw obvious conclusions.

oh man!!! you make yourself sound so uninformed and ignorant.

obviously you and your cohorts are making the claim that these uninsured motorists are illegals (otherwise why put it in this section), therefore the BURDEN OF PROOF lays with YOU. show me, with reputable evidence, that these 38% of uninsured motorists in your area are illegals. can you?

c'mon. keep up. thats basic debate.

So the percent of uninsured motorists who are illegals is lower, say, 20 to 25% or so. (Sorry, don't have exact stats for that.)

Here is a link for the number of uninsured motorists in the U.S. This Link says 14% (old data). The link I looked at earlier said 15% uninsured motorists (29 mil) in the U.S. But I couldn't find that exact same data.

The problem with most of you Archie Bunker types who post in this forum is that you attribute all of America's woes to illegals. You guys/gals need to use your noggins a bit more and realize that not all of the stats on the redneck sites you visit are accurate. Try doing some fact checking for yourself sometime instead of asking others to do your homework for you. And it wouldn't hurt to be more open minded.

There are more like 20-30 milion illegals in this country. The problem with you Apologists for illegal alien types is that you have a reading comprehension problem. None of has blamed ALL of America's woes on illegals. We don't use stats from so-called redneck sites either but I am sure your "type" uses stats from La Raza sites.

Even the great anti-immigrant groups CIS and NumbersUsa etc put the number at 11 million. So where are you getting your 20-30 million number from?
