Needless to say that the only illegal immigrants that have been deported have been the ones who commit crimes, which justify being jailed. The police don’t pick illegal's up without a valid reason. But it's nice to know that the criminal element is off the streets or at least an attempt made to rid the streets of criminals.

A moment or two, this article seems to be going in the direction that ANY means of money is more important than the way it was obtained.

For a long list of reasons, I would rather have NO ILLEGALS and struggle for money than have the extra money they bring in for law enforcement.

Less crime equals less law enforcement needed!

This is so stupid it just boggles the mind. So I guess it's okay to knowlingly rent your house to people who are going to make meth, just as long as you get your money. Same reason for subprime loans. We got our money out of it, too bad for you and the country.

This is a weak argument. While certain departments may be making money, the schools buckle under the weight of illegals kids. California is bankrupt, their schools in shambles do to illegals.

Emergency rooms feature such long waits that people routinely die waiting for treatment because illegals use them as family clinics and never pay a dime back.

Claiming "good business" for a few million is so typical of our shortsighted me first society. Illegals are not good business for anyone except those who exploit both illegals and America citizens for their own personal financial gain.

Well we know Mike Jones of the Tulsa World didn't write this, it has too positive a slant to it. The way the World tried to slant the Ralley in DC was their attempt to be the NYT's

Send those damn mexicans back to Mexico! By the time my children are old enough to work there won't be any jobs left! They are already driving wages down. I hope somebody fixes this problem soon , its probably to late!
Thanks to our former presidents the bush's,( idiots ) for not doing something about the problems here in America instead of spending all the money in iraq.

While I agree with you about Iraq, these problems started with Reagan when he gave amnesty and no president. Republican or Democrat has controlled those borders since.

You both would benefit from studying Congress and/or US government.
