You're telling us this why? We don't care, everybody does a sob story. This should be something you talk over with your parents.

It would save billions more than it would cost to deport.
Illegal aliens only contribute to the state state through sales taxes but use schools, roads, hospitals, public housing, welfare for their anchor babies, and so on.
Most drive with no license or insurance and when they cause an accident it is the American insurance company that has to pay then pass that cost on to anyone who buys insurance.

ICE needs to go door to door in every city and town in America and drag these dirty illegals out by their hair and feet if necessary and deport them and their anchor brats.

The usual pap and pablum, along with 200 or so back-of-the-envelope calculations from the left. I find it hilarious that they complain about the right always bringing up supposedly 'unprovable' things like voter fraud, then pull something like this from their posteriors.

Pure malarkey.

If an ICE agent came banging on my door to try and remove me, he'd get shot on the spot as that's what any American Patriot would do.

Obama's administration has deported more illegal aliens than any other administration in the history of the US. This administration has also prosecuted more businesses who hire illegals in record numbers and has gone after the assets of those criminal employers. As a result, illegal immigration is down to record lows and illegals are self deporting in record numbers.

There is a reason California is referred to as the Granola state, because it is full of fruits and nuts.

Roofing and construction companies have used illegal immigrants to lower their overhead and increase their profits as they chase storms from state to state for the insurance money.

Insurance companies have discovered that by demanding copies of the USCIS I-9 form that employers are required to maintain on all their employees, they are able to deny payment of the O&P claims. This saves the insurance companies hundreds of millions and takes away the overhead and profit payments to illegal employers.

Last year a storm passed through here and tore up a bunch of roofs. Roofing companies from around the nation sent white men door to door to sell new roofs to unsuspecting white homeowners only to discover that the crew that was tearing off the old roof and installing the new roof were unable to speak a word of English. The day that the roofing crew showed up at my house, my insurance adjuster came by, took a look and called the local sheriff department and had them document the undocumented workers and report them to ICE. I got a new roof and my insurance saved the O&P keeping my premiums down. That roofing company tried to come after me for the O&P so I asked for the I-9 forms for the workforce. The roofing company tried to tell me that that workforce was subcontractors but I have pictures of that crew wearing the company logo on their shirts and the company logo on their truck. The sheriff had a copy of the registration of that truck and it belonged to the company who was claiming that they didn't hire those illegals. To make a short story a little longer...that company sent me a statement showing the bill paid in full. That doesn't stop ICE from their investigation into the workings of that company and I've been assured that that company will be brought down, all their assets and bank accounts will be seized and the owners will be prosecuted for tax evasion and other crimes.

We need more of these criminal tax evaders brought to justice and that will only happen under a Obama administration.

Mitt Romney wants to coddle these crooks and allow them to screw over the middle class for fun and profit.

You're obviously not a steer, you must be a queer.
