There is another, more subtle problem with allowing illegals to live in our country and that is the cost to taxpayers. Recently, I requested that Idaho undergo a study to determine how many Idaho resources are being spent on people who have no right to live in our state. Since that request, I have been provided a wealth of information on costs. For example, in 2004 in our primary and secondary education system, the cost of illegal immigrants was something more than $11 for every man, woman, and child in our state or a total of $15,869,071 according to one study.

Idaho's population of criminal aliens in jail and in prison is rapidly escalating and certainly there is demand on our health and welfare system. Sales tax and income tax payers carry the burden for the prosecution and incarceration of criminal immigrants. Counties, through their 'indigent funds,' provided by local property taxes, are forced to pay for illegal immigrant health care. Emergency and maternity care is mandated by the federal government and the states bear the burden.

A more appropriate title for the article would be: "Representation Without Taxation" or “Representation Without Legalization.”

Oh yes, Virginia is a lot worse and we are still on the states with LIGHT-MODERATE illegal immigration problems list.

I was aiming more on the West/southern states guys. LOL. California, Texas, although Arizona is thinning the herd.

ITA. We are being raped by our own government. Whichever one of the two amnesty advocates becomes the next POTUS will not be able to avoid the truth about this issue. No more hiding from reality. The rising murder rates contributed to the presence of IA has shed light and raised the ante.
