I just saw a report that 30% of the prison system is populated with illegal immigrants costing US taxpayers $3.3 million a day to house them. WTF is wrong with that picture?!?!?!

Something has got to be done and I don't really care if I get a little inconvenienced and be unfairly profiled in the process!!!

Absolutely, kcatheart.

Unfortunately, Illegals represent a huge cost to every U.S. Citizen, not just the citizens living near the borders.

Funny how opponents of the bill just want to concentrate on certain aspects and totally disregard the facts especially when they can't argue against facts.

It was an CNN report. Google 'cost of illegal immigration' on youtube. I think it was a Lou Dobbs tonight on CNN report.
