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.
As one of those employers who supposedly wants illegals for cheap labor, forget it.
I like legal immigration, but I believe that it is up to the people of the country to decide who comes in, and how they enter, and why.
A nation without a boundary is not a nation. That does not make me a "racist," although I do tend to believe that folks with northern European backgrounds seem to understand American ways, traditions, social habits and values most readily and adapt most easily. But everyone knows that.
But let me ask our readers a simple question: Would you enter a country illegally? And if not, why not?
Illegals are simply taking advantage of us (which probably means they are that sort of people), and of our our soft-heartedness. It's as simple as that. But no good deed goes unpunished.
Here's what happens when you decide to base your new life on breaking the law (data from PoliPundit):

This is merely a set of stats cobbled together from various places, sometimes misinterpreted, etc.
Some of the number may be true, but, consider that the source is basically unsourced, and therefore, must be treated as unreliable. Now, if folk could spend the time to get a source for some/all of these, it would be a very good thing.
