We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Those of us who have legal immigrants in the family are annoyed at this. I have two Romanians and a Filipina, who just shrug in frustration. The one who was in the USMC says "If they volunteered to go into the military or something else that helped the country they are coming to, I wouldn't mind so much." He doesn't get the part about illegals volunteering for the military, but the general point is a good one.
You will notice that no pollsters seem to ask them what they think.

Why did they decide to cross at Del Rio? It's quite a ways inland from the eastern coast where they would have had to land if they came by boat. Did they come up through Cuba? Who organized this and how long in advance was it organized?
There is no greater disservice to country than the one presently engaged by the country's journalists and the publishing industry that supports them. They seem immune to shame or any shreds of honor. How did 15,000 people - the current estimate 'under the bridge' - come to be here? Who facilitated it? Who is allowing them in? Who is organizing their transportation and placement within unsuspecting communities across the US, complete with no identification or background check on criminality, no vaccines, no public health assurances (measles, a truly virulent and dangerous communicable disease is springing up again)? How is it possible to sustain such malign complicity?
These are your replacements. You will be taxed into poverty to make sure that they have everything they need. They will vote for more free stuff and you will pay for it. Eventually, perhaps a few years, you will be physically assaulted by these same people who are now coming across the border claiming they fear for their life or ONLY want to work and YOU will be punished if you defend yourself. Welcome to the new world order.
That's a good thing right? America would be better off if every state had 1.5 million or less people. Excessive population leads to poverty and degradation of human rights. We don't "need" immigrants. There is no shortage of under educated people who end up on welfare. Deport them all.
Population concentration seems to be the root of a great many problems in the country. Indeed, all should be far more spread out. The comment was an implication of the impact of this much 'voting' might have. There's a reason most of them are being relocated to Red States.
