said she is preparing to flee the country by the end of this month. The reason: She drives to work without a license and is worried she will get arrested and deported in connection with the tough new law.

“We are working,” she said in Spanish.“I believe the law should be for criminals, not for us.”

I DID NOT FIND ANY WORDS TO COMMENT ON THAT.

Just as 'word of mouth' in Georgia, about what is being taken away from illegals, is causing them to leave; so it goes that the same 'word of mouth', about what California is 'giving' to them, is causing them to continue to come here. I will be leaving in a few minutes to take a walk, and as I do, I will pass mostly illegal aliens talking in Spanish, and this is a middle-class neighborhood.

The other day, I drove to central Los Angeles. For miles at a time, I did not see one White, Black or Asian person. One of the most un-diverse cities in the World. I could parachute into Timbuktoo, or the capital of the Congo, and I would, after a few miles, see more Whites or Asians than what I saw on my drive through the Eastern part of LA.

Well, let's see they can head to:

NY
MA
MD

If they want to stay on the East Coast.

All we can hope for is each local and state election we can vote in more people who will take the issue of illegals seriously.

We also have to get elected officials in who will demand the Feds target those overstaying visas as well. I asked my local guys if this can be done at at state level and it cannot. The states cannot audit visa records and hands are tied unless someone overstaying a visa breaks a law and is caught by the 287(g) program.

Ah did someone pull the little bitty babys chain? They leave because there is no more work for them here. They are coming your way and we hope you have as much fun raising them as we did. As for Georgia being a shithole, well she might not be as grand as she once was but dingo she is and will be in a lot better shape that mexifornia.

The liberal AJC said it exactly as they wanted you to read it .
If they were reporting on Anthony Weiner,s X rated photo .
They,d be saying
"Anthony Wiener criticized by the racist republicans for "Sun Bathing" in his own home.
Get the Picture ?
The AJC is owned and operated by the socialist democrat Obama lovers !!!
What else could we expect them to say ?

the illegal immigrants imprisoned in California are locked up for drug
offenses. The average inmate has been arrested a shocking seven times at an
average $34,000 annual cost.

And that,s just the tip of the ice burg ,of what it,s really costing American citizens for this flood of ILLEGAL aliens to claim our country for their own.
Add on free education for their kids , free E R health care , welfare and additional law enforcement agents to try and track these law breakers down etc. Hell no wonder the country is BROKE.
And before one of you socialist fools starts with your, we,re all immigrants routine to justify these law breakers actions.
"Bu-- S--T" If you live in another country and you want to live or work in the U.S.
We,ve got laws in place to allow you to do just that .Get in line .
We,ve got enough of our legal U.S. citizens breaking the laws .
And we don,t need any more free loaders from out side the country to add to the problem !!

If you want to be here, do it legally. Nobody cares if you get separated from your family. You broke the law. Does anyone feel compassion for anyone that committed armed robbery? Hell no! I know I'm going to get crap for comparing this to armed robbery, but the law is the law!

Have you not heard? California has 287(g) programs in some Counties thus the increase in the identification of illegal immigrant criminals. You should be happy.

On a lighter note.

California's gross state product average (GSP) is about $1.85 trillion, which is 13% of the United States gross domestic product (GDP). As of 2011 California places second (after New York State and ahead of third place Texas) with 53 Fortune 500 company headquarters. California's economy is still world's eighth-largest, despite recession.
