If none of that helps you unbunch your knickers, think about this, there are a hell of a lot of people in the US that take their freedom for granted and piss all over it. Somebody who's walked across the border has just risked life and limb for that same freedom. Who do you want to stand with?

THIRD WORLD IMMIGRATION INTO AMERICA: IMPORTING POVERTY, NOT PROSPERITY.
We have now a declining economy to account for that.
Third World immigration into the United States of America has boosted poverty levels,
put millions of Americans out of work,
contributed over 25 percent of the federal prison population
and has placed a tax burden of billions of dollars on the US taxpayer.
We should gather the 12 to 13 million illegals we have here with their chidlren and send them to the Eurpoean countries and see how good their immigrations laws are compare to the US.
It's estimated that there are 6.2 million high school dropouts in the nation. Contrary to what some say, it's the high school dropouts who are fueling the rise in our prison populations according to a new study.
Consequences of Dropping out of High School: Joblessness & Jailing for High School Dropouts & The High Cost for Taxpayers details how while young Black high school dropouts are disproportionately represented in the penal and juvenile detention system, the problem cuts across racial lines.
Male dropouts of all races were 47 times more likely to be incarcerated than their peers of a similar age who had graduated from a four-year college or university.
An earlier report examining the dropout crisis found that of the 6.2 million high school dropouts, the vast majority are male, Black and Latino. The report's authors recommend that instead of expanding prisons with new facilities, there should be more investment into programs that keep dropouts in school.
In 1963, President Lyndon Johnson launched the War on Poverty with the goal of eliminating poverty in the United States. Since that time, the U.S. has spent over $11 trillion on anti-poverty programs, providing cash, food, housing, medical care, and services to the poor and near poor. Today, government provides a generous system of benefits and services to both the working and non-working poor. While government continues its massive efforts to reduce poverty, immigration policy in the U.S. has come to operate in the opposite direction, increasing rather than decreasing poverty. Immigrants with low skill levels have a high probability of both poverty and receipt of welfare benefits and services.
