Exactly what I believe. Taxpayers need to take care of their own business by stopping all of the freeloading of illegal aliens. It is our business to watch and be sure politicians do with our money what is right, to not allow criminals to keep living off of our money by using ID theft, and Social Service fraud to name a couple. Pro-illegals step in and try and make this issue their business by backing criminal behavior. Maybe taxes should be divided to let only THEM foot the bill. I'd be ok with that.

The safest hoods have neighborhood watch. The poorest barrios and hoods have ribbon wire, bars and frightened people living among the scum doing the graffiti and crime.

That's a great idea, getout. Take a poll on who are the illegal alien apologists and divide up the added tax burden among them. Bet they would be changing their tunes real fast.

Regardless of how somebody feels on the immigration issue, I'm think nearly everyone on either side disapproves of the fraud and leeching of our social welfare systems that takes place by a small portion of illegal immigrants. The same goes with those who are violent criminals. My viewpoint of these two groups of illegal immigrants is different than the group who just comes here to work and doesn't attempt to take advantage of the governement or commit violent crimes.

That distinction should be made.

Beg to differ. Your group of those who have just come to work but haven't committed I.D. fraud to work (or other crimes) or doesn't work under the table to avoid taxes or hasn't collected some type of welfare for themselves or their families would be a very short list.

If you are that concerned about your lifestyle (whatever it may be); then you need to be discreet, otherwise people will be much less likely to be busybodies. Now; if you are doing something illegal; especially if a Felony...........you probably deserve to be caught and punished.

I am a proponent of multi generational living so in a way I do support this. I know my own parents, who grew up during the depression, often shared housing with other families to make ends meet. While that was done out of necessity I grew up with a one grandparent or another living with us..3 generations under one roof..and see that more often than large groups of unrelated people.

There must be limits on how many bodies/vehicles/etc. can occupy a specific space though, because too much or too many can effect others.

Brown outs are becoming more common as the electrical supply is not made for this number of people. I hope the sewers don't start to overflow. Some hospitals have gone bankrupt and the few that remain are stretched to the limit. No, multiple families living in dwellings and neighborhoods not designed for them is a disaster.

A bad idea all around.
Can you please cite one Hospital in your area that has "Gone Bankrupt"?
