Oh boy, more crap to pay for. While they make 8 bucks an hour and we subsidize their other needs, medical, food stamps, free healthcare, low or subsidized housing so the greedy meat packing co. owner can sit in his cozy leather chair smoking a cuban cigar and laughing his A____ off at the poor buggers struggling to get by, pay mortgages, insurance, auto loans, medical care, an on on... Wake up people. Vote.!

I can't wait until Asian illegals really start to crowd out mexican illegals and steal their jobs. The beaners will be screaming mad and clamoring for closure of our borders. Hopefully, I'll be out the third world scum pond that America is fast becoming by then. If Obama stays in power, I'll have to speed up my plans.

More people coming to steal from the taxpayers' pockets. More schools overflowing with children who speak no English and are years behind their American counterparts due to their lack of English proficiency. More funding will be needed for ELL classes and tutors, while more electives get cut as school systems try to balance their dwindling budgets. When illegals live in an overcrowded domicile, they in no way pay their fair share for the services they are stealing. This situation only begets a decline in living condtions for all.
