Illegal Immigration

"Unfortunately, low-skill immigrants don’t pay enough taxes to cover the cost of the benefits they receive." Paul Krugman.

That's about it. Here in LA the medical safty net I use when necessary is crushed daily by Mexican nationals. Hospitals that served poor black areas have closed. It takes months to get an appontment and going stand-by is like a visit to Mexico. As for the cliche they "do the jobs Americans won't do" I just don't buy it. If they weren't here Americans of all ethnicities and educational levels would do them. Are they telling me the United Farms Workers don't have workers? They're irrelevant now because of illegals. Who believes anyone will step forward to become a guest who must return home?
