What is it about ILLEGAL immigration does the president not understand? These people entering the country illegally, have no allegiance to us. It's all about the "bennies". Exactly what positive contributions are they going to make? The last census figures show there to be about 320 million+/- people in this country of which about 60 million are Latino. Is there a crying need for more South Americans in this country when there are people in other countries who have waited years for permission to come in LEGALLY? I am NOT xenophobic but fair is fair. Besides, more non-contributors put additional strain on our already fragile infrastructure. Our schools, roads, water supply, power structures, hospitals are all over taxed and now the president wants to tax us further by allocating funds, that could be better allocated elsewhere, to those who are essentially criminals.
