Illegal immigrants and their children cost the State of California roughly $30.29 billion per year in net costs. This works out to $7,352 per illegal alien, or ~17.7 percent of California’s state budget.
counted when apportioning congressional districts and when allocating state electors under the Electoral College. This means noncitizens play a role in determining how many congressional representatives a state has and exert an indirect influence on presidential elections.
Mass immigration has had a significant effect on American electoral politics. Despite the fact that it is a crime for aliens to vote in federal elections, noncitizens and illegal aliens are counted when apportioning congressional districts. 1 This means that areas with large numbers of illegal alien residents gain additional representatives in Congress.
In addition, there is evidence that both foreign nationals who are lawfully present in the United States and illegal aliens have voted in recent elections.
The intentions behind the Real ID Act also continue to be thwarted by certain provisions of the NVRA. These provisions, known as the “Motor-Voter Law,” require state departments of motor vehicles to act as voter registration proxies. The information supplied by license applicants doubles as voter registration information and the registration process has become nearly automatic. Because so many states continue to issue driver’s licenses to noncitizens, it is relatively easy for aliens to commit voter fraud through the Motor-Voter system. When renewing a driver’s license by mail, they simply check the boxes indicating that they wish to be registered as voters and affirming that they are a U.S. citizen. Most often, they are added to the voter rolls without any attempt to verify the applicant’s citizenship.
The Orange County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday voted to move against the state's "sanctuary" laws, adding a powerful voice to a growing backlash in some conservative parts of California to the state's pro-immigrant policies.
Foes of illegal immigration hailed the board's vote. "It's about time we had more bodies like this one standing up to lawlessness of the California state Legislature," said Arthur Christopher Schaper of Torrance, an outspoken conservative activist. "Steps like this will ensure that American lives will matter once again."

Please read the "Rules For Radicals" by Saul Alinsky. To maintain power make people dependent on the state. Everything in this book is exactly what is being done in California by their state government.

I think that the most humorous part of the pro illegal argument is that the liberals willingly exploit the illegals for sub standard wages. "What American would even do those jobs at that wage?".
Never fails to make me smile. They seem so robber Baron/capitalistic when they talk like that.

Every State has most of the same problems. Perhaps California has a bigger issues, they do have almost forty million people living there. My State has about three and a half million. We have homeless. We have immigrants. Our middle class is burdened with the share of paying the bills.
California bad. Mississippi good. California bad. Alabama good. California bad. South Carolina good. We get it.
And I'm ABSOLUTELY certain there are endless beautiful, safe places to live and enjoy in the State. JUST LIKE EVERYWHERE ELSE IN THE USA.
