Thank Goodness they are finally starting to address the problem. Here in NY we are swamped with illeagals who come straight up here. The number of cars with plates from TX, NM, and AZ is astounding these days and they are almost always full of people who don't know where they are going. This is a nation wide problem but if the states need to address it one by one, it's about time. The American economy and crimianl justice system cannot support the continued wave of migrants. The bigger problem is not just Illeagal Immigration, but the fact that there are many many loopholes in the current law. The children of illeagal aliens who are born here, as a main example, are automatically becoming US Citizens. It needs to end.
Thank you and God Bless,
