A lethal business model targets Middle America - latimes.com Here is a multiple part story on "immigrants" coming to the USA for a better life at who's expense? I love how the PC word immigrant seems to replace Illegal alien invader/Drug pusher in this PC rag LA times). This is for the people that believe that "all" Illegals make a positive contribution to society.

Especially contradictory to what the illegal apologists always claim (and quite disturbing too):

--"They really created a market that didn't exist before they got here," said Marnie Sheehan-Balchon, the deputy state attorney general who prosecuted the case.

--"They told me 'We're going to give you three ounces to go to Indiana.' You want to begin in a place that's clean and you make it grow."

--Among them was a small town in West Virginia, 160 miles south of Columbus, where before the fall of 2007, few people had ever heard of black-tar heroin.

Using convenient delivery by car and aggressive marketing, they have moved into cities and small towns across the United States, often creating demand for heroin where there was little or none. In many of those places, authorities report increases in overdoses and deaths.
Yet, we are told the drug dealers are simply responding to demand. We have enough homegrown scum in this country, we certainly don’t need more. No doubt, they are dealing drugs just to feed their families, while they seek a better life in the USA. It is their God-given right to survive, and our obligation to support them.

Just think, those lacking a criminal record are eligible for amnesty, and a path to citizenship.
