Look at what it did to CA in 30 years. From the richest state in america to bankrupt cesspool.

Check out Illinois, another state that looked the other way. Now they are on the brink of disaster, and want a taxpayer bailout. It's going to take more than a bailout to straighten out the mess that Chicago-style corruption and politics has wrought.

Well, if large numbers of illegals are the reason for "bankrupting" a state, why is Texas thriving?

California isn't bankrupt because of illegals, California is bankrupt because it was grossly mismanaged by (mostly) white Americans.

Texas has about the same percentage of Hispanics as California, but Texas is THRIVING.

Hence, it is illogical to assume that "large percentages of Hispanics" lead to financial disaster.

The problem in California is FISCAL MISMANAGEMENT by Americans, not Hispanics (legal or otherwise).
