Linda, Bless you. You are a talented and interesting writer. I agree with you in principle but not in specifics. We have far too many illegals here and our politicians have no desire to fix this. Illegals should get no free government benefits - no medical care, no education, no housing assistance. Business should face heavy fines and even criminal charges for employing illegals - especially the Hollywood celebs who employ them as gardeners, nannies and upstairs maids. Do this FIRST and then we can discuss what to do with our 'innocent squatters'.
