I've lived in CA for the last 29 years, started a business in San Francisco and currently own four houses here. The first of those houses just sold and the next will be going on the market in a few weeks. CA has been brought to its knees by illegals invading this state. When I came to CA it was a rich state now bankruptcy is just a breath away. Americans should take a hard look at CA because if this travesty of an immigration bill passes the mess that has engulfed CA is headed for you too. Crime, failing schools, overwhelmed hospitals, bankruptcy, high unemployment can come to your town too. In a matter of weeks my family will flee CA, we will sell the remaining properties from another state, one with better schools, less crime& a pro business attitude, but wherever we are we will continue to oppose people like Mr Baretto who serve big business, but care nothing about the America you and I live in.

Absolutely correct, dale.
But we have not even yet gotten to your issue - tens of millions of illegals with foreign cultures swarming into the country univited, unprepared, uneducated, many with who knows what?) contagious diseases, needy, with no respect for the law (as evidenced by their first official act on US soil) and unwilling to assimilate..
You are absolutely right (and I am truly sorry that you have personally suffered the effects of the combination of unfettered illegal immigration and deep-pockets welfare). But wait a minute. This author, on a CONSERVATIVE site, with a straight face, just tried to tell us that this scamnesty bill is PRO-BUSINESS!!!
(And before the cries of racism start, I have lived in Puebla, Mexico for over 5 years, am married to a mexicana, speak the language fluently, and we have tried several times, unsuccessfully, the LEGAL route to visit my dying father so she can at least meet him before he dies. She has witnessed the resulting carnage of illegal immigration here in Mexico, and has suffered the effects of Americans refusing to enforce their own laws. She is more anti-illegal immigration than I am.)
