Native Americans CAN'T have an issue with illegal immigration.
By their own admission they did not have a concept of land ownership, therefor there was no 'country' to illegaly immigrate to.
The Native Americans were conquered more so than washed away by 'illegal' immigration.

While the "welfare" angle is a part of it all, its not the complete problem.
General corruption, weak leadership, and overspending, exterior military forces growing, over extended military, non-indigenous personell in military forces.

Illegal Immigration Led To The Fall Of The Roman Empire

German immigrants drove the government of the Late Western Roman Empire into penury and extinction. Are Mexican and other immigrants from the third world likely to send the government of the American Republic to a similar fate? And is the United States of America the only western nation facing such a demise? The answers are maybe and no, respectively.
