Quote:

More than two-thirds of Los Angeles County residents support the idea of making their hometown a “sanctuary city” where undocumented immigrants could be shielded from deportation, according to a survey conducted by Loyola Marymount University researchers.

You're right. I'm willing to bet that LA County is composed of mostly Hispanics who are either here illegally or have family here illegally. Surprise, surprise!

Also, as a reminder, we left San Diego in 1993, mostly because of the politics in California.

Probably because they are illegals. But it is illegal to give benefits of any kind to people who are in the country illegally; i.e., not citizens.

Sure. But then you have illegals having 3-4 kids, who are citizens, and then the benefits start to flow "to the children".... so, tack on food stamps, WIC, free lunch and breakfast programs, Medicaid, housing assistance that the US-born CHILDREN are "entitled" to. Not to mention the 10k or so PER CHILD that it takes to educate just ONE child in the system. This, after they probably stiffed the hospital with the birthing bill because no insurance.


One illegal family can literally cost the American taxpayer 60-70k a year to support, easily. But I guess it's OK because some meat packing plant gets low wage workers or some rich ***** in BelAire gets cheap nanny services without having to pay taxes.


That's what alllllll "do illegals costs more than the contribute" studies fail to take into account. And it's a loophole of terminology.

Hispanics are definitely the majority. I'm surprised they haven't changed Spanish to the official state language, like Florida did.

Florida did NOT do that! As a matter of fact, ENGLISH is codified in statute as the official language of the State. Hispanics who do not learn English will find working and living outside of Miami-Dade County quite difficult.
