>> the overwhelming majority of immigrants — legal and illegal alike — are good, decent, hard working people simply looking to make a better life for themselves and their families

Most Americans are decent, hard working people simply looking to make a better life too! But our decks are awash and we are sinking in a sea of debt and just can’t afford to support illegals anymore. The “American Dream” isn’t a suicide pact.

It isn’t like they’re fleeing political or religious persecution and we have some moral imperative to save them. They just want to take our money and send it home. They don’t care about us or our country. We’re just a giant ATM for them.

The part Libs never can acknowledge is that with the earned income tax credit being upped to middle class levels, the sevices used nearly always outpace the taxation paid.

It’s a deficit, in probably 95% of the time...

What puts it over the top is the drug crime, the untaxed billions traded, the social, health, legal and incarceration costs it brings.

Think about how much a home value or business value goes down when gangs and/or illegals come. Salinas, CA is a great example. Citizens don’t want to live there and it becomes a Latino Detroit.
