Question Details: The southwestern united states is becoming de facto part of mexico. Illegal aliens are driving up medical costs because they go to emergency rooms and don't pay - the costs are shifted onto others. Several trauma centers in LA have closed because they've been bankrupted by non-paying illegals. Illegals are 25% of the prison population in CA. Illegals AREN'T doing the "jobs americans won't do" - Americans won't do them at the black market wage they pay illegals. Illegals are draining social services, corrupting officials and commercial entities, distorting our politics, and balkanizing our country - but Obama wants them all to stay. At exactly the time we need high quality immigrants, the dems, including Obama, want to dump mexico's underclass on us just to get more votes.
