recent wisdom here--
For those of us who have had to live with ILLEGALS, reality is all too troubling. They pack 8-15 people into 2 BR apartments...they clean just enuff to live, but not enuff to keep the bugs down...they drink like alcoholics, accost women and act rudely in front of children.
A good friend of mine who emigrated here from South America explained the difference between ILLEGALS and legal Hispanics. Legal Hispanics care, they take the time to do it right; they care about family values. ILLEGALS make a wage w/o paying income taxes and send most of their money back across the border.
Call me any name you wish...I lived with these people and fixed the apartments they lived in...over and over again.
