Illegal immigration is destroying America's melting pot By Kenneth D. Bruner 02/27/2011 The reality is that illegal immigration is negatively impacting almost every faucet of our society. The lives of Border Patrol agents and National Guard troops are at greater risk every day because we continue to encourage foreign nationals to illegally cross our borders. Illegal aliens are filling jobs (including construction, meat cutting, and other similar work) that U.S. citizens would gladly do. They are putting a terrible drain on our education system, health care, and all of our social service programs. They are not interested in assimilating into our society. http://www.standard.net/topics/opin...l-immigration-destroying-americas-melting-pot I agree except ALL need to be deported. If is not fair to reward those that have been here 25 years and punish those that just entered. They are all illegal. We have 30 million in the country illegally because our government has been doing half the job of enforcement.
