Those of us who have lived in the American southwest for the last 40 years don't buy for a second that there is "no net immigration" from Mexico since 2007. Hogwash. The face of California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas have been permanently changed by massive, uncontrolled ILLEGAL immigration from Mexico to the US. They are here in droves, have overwhelmed once stable communities and have ensured one-party rule in CA. California is far from the "golden state" it once was, and now is a national joke with nearly 10% unemployment, millions of illegals receiving taxpayer-funded benefits they don't deserve and clogging schools and hospitals demanding treatment legal, lifelong residents don't receive.
