Illegal immigrants are a huge drain on our economy.

Because of their lack of health insurance, they go to the hospitals with their illnesses. They cost us uncounted amounts of money for welfare, food stamps and bilingual services.

They are usually the ones with no drivers license or insurance on the road.

All this is happening while our economy has suffered.

I know politicians need the Latino vote, but it’s past time we stop being so politically correct and just start being correct.

Yes, we need farmworkers, but not he 11 million immigrants that are here illegally.

For those who say we are all immigrants, I am not. I am native to this country. I’m Native American.
