    As for me, it remains my opinion [and mine alone] that if the American government deported illegals and emphasized border control [not just patrol], we'd be spending less for schools - pre through public colleges, although school officials may not agree as they depend on higher number of students to pay their bills - the public health care, welfare, law enforcement [from arrests to courts to prison], infrastructure wearing out, and many other things that the federal; state and local governments have to pony up to keep this society afloat.

    Very few people want to admit that there is a thousand-pound gorilla in the Oval Office. Instead of admitting the gorilla is the real problem, government spends money on spin experts and re-education of citizens in the area of teaching us to be more tolerant and politically correct! And the price tag to re-educate the public on being receptive and respective of any and all illegals is being placed on the First Bank of China credit card.

    With stronger border control and enforcement of existing laws [already on the books], that deal swiftly and correctly with illegal border crossers, Americans would see a different America. One that has money, jobs, and a whole lot less debt. We'd not have to worry about Medicare, social security, recessions, unemployment, crime, and you can probably fill in the blanks better than I can.

    When the liberal learning, bleeding hearts of the nation step down from their soap box maybe this nation can get itself back on track.

    So long as America continues to ignore the gorilla in the Oval Office [that's been there since at least Ronald Reasgan's days]; we will be economically starved, challenged and passing unto our children's children debt that will take a huge bite out of their paychecks when their time comes to earn a living and contribute to this nation and raise their own families.

    Legal immigration is what made America great, way back when those coming here wanted to assimilate and become American in every way!

    However, IMHO, illegal immigration will be what makes America less than great, deeply in debt and even more deeply divided.

    Amnesty is not the answer [as Reagan proved, it leads to the need for more amnesty]! Enforcement and deportation worked back in our grandparent's days, and it will work today when the do-gooders get out of the way! We can't continue to add unspecified amounts of debt every year to our childrens future, just like we can't continue to add unspecific numbers of illegal immigrants from nations around this world.

    Finally, as a believer, amnesty is poor stewardship. And for sure [IMHO] it is not love and acceptance in action. If we can barely take care of our own [if you don't believe me, visit your local mission district], then why open the gates to add millions more. Amnesty and allowing illegals to remain in this country is poor stewardship with tax money, and nothing else! :BangHead:

    Shalom! :type:

    There is a video out on the cost of illegal immigration. It can be obtained at "TheyComeToAmerica.com"!

    Well, there are different ideas about immigration, how it helps or hurts our economy. I suppose one side often mentioned is if the foreign workers didn't come here to work, the companies would leave the US for the workers.

    On the opposite end of the spectrum, saw Steve Sailor had a write up about how allowing large immigration can hurt average Americans.

    "NYT: There was a sustained lack of productivity growth from 1300 to 1700. Really, what's the NYT printed on?"


    snippet from his article:

    Immigrants to the US seem to be changing also. More are coming from Asia these days, due in large part to the housing bust if I recall correctly.

    "Asians Pass Latinos as Biggest Immigrant Group"
