Shhh, Patricia, Some doesn't like it known that federally and by states immigration has been turned into trafficking in human beings which was last abolished for importing gross numbers I....think in 1808 (or right near there) with the institution of "previous slavery" having been ended by the civil war.On the legal side -- legal immigrants allow for siphoning out the contents of the federal tax coffers emptying those. Import a few thousand refugees and plug your friends you class under faith based initiatives or non-profit orgs to funnel cash to the immigrants with the majority of the bucks sticking to those making up the pipeline of course. Immigrants make out like gangbusters. Thieves make out even better. Taxpayers get bankrupt tax coffers. On the illegal side -- the country's being invaded by the millions with the facilitation and aid of our politicians of both parties. Businesses get the benefit of slave wages paid. The citizen taxpayer gets the bill, the shaft, and displaced from jobs, the economy, ed, and our borders are erased.The new slaves aren't the immigrants. Instead, they are the US citizen taxpayers.
