We all know the only reason illegal aliens are not systematically removed from the country is that corporate/business interests demand that this cheap labor be kept in the country. Everyone else be damned. So pay up and shut up.

I personally don't think all the blame should be put to the illegal immigrant for our defecit. I think it should be blame to our dear POLITICIANS...They keep putting all of tax payers money in their packets...Yes Illegal immigrants have some to blame, but not all...

Illeagal Immigrants bring diseases that this country has already vaccinated against. However think of the people that cannot afford healthcare. Said people do not get vaccinated, die from these diseases. Guess what? your tax dollars just went to fund murder.

While providing Border Patrol in Yuma, I came to witness a young girl in the hollowed out section of a dashboard, guess how we found her. We opened the glove compartment during our search and almost got our fingers bitten off. This does not effect the economy but it just shows you some of the lengths Illegals will go to, to get into this country.

No matter how you put it, Illegal Immigration drasticly effects the economy in a bad way.
