    IMPACT OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION AN “EXAGGERATION”

    That is what Bill Ritter of Colorado told a man on C-Span this morning. The impact of illegal immigration of our economy is not an “exaggeration.”

    There is a direct “impact” on our education, health care and legal system.
    When we have 350,000 “anchor babies” born in our hospitals free of charge each year and it is a direct impact on our health care system, economy and taxpayer.

    When we have our schools flooded with “anchor babies” who my not speak English or fully comprehend the English language and extra school have to be built, that is not being built fast enough to keep up with the increase in students, special teachers have to be hired to give special attention to the children of illegal aliens. Even special schools are constructed especially for them like the Mariposa Academy of Language for children of illegal aliens and the majority of our public schools are as much as 95% Hispanic.
    Most of these children quality for free breakfast and lunch paid for by the taxpayer.
    Incarcerations, gang and graffiti units, legal representations and additional law enforcement are a direct impact of illegal immigration on our economy.

    Any impact on our economy is an impact on the taxpayers.

    Since most illegal aliens are low wage earners and unskilled are paying very little in taxes if any and the cost falls on the American taxpayer who is left behind and their children left behind in over crowded schools. Those low skilled and some or not, are taken by illegal aliens who are working for less and bring down wages of American workers. And if I hear once more they are doing jobs Americans will not do like construction, road work, clinic, department stores, Home Depot, hotel, domestic and yard work, I will scream because I know when there were not 12 million illegal aliens in this country Americans were doing these jobs as a fair wage. 12 million illegal aliens are not picking lettuce in the fields. How do 12 million low wage earners send $24 billion back to Mexico each year?

    Not to forget about all the Americans who have become victims of the criminal element of illegal immigration. They have killed more Americans than all the recent wars altogether.

    Maybe it does not have an “impact” on people like Bill Ritter, because he does not have to compete with illegal aliens for his job, his neighborhood are not flooded with crime, gangs, drugs and graffiti and his children do not compete for education.

    Until Bill Ritter have walked in the shoes of the average hard working American family, he do not have a right to decide or comment on Comprehensive Immigration Reform which is another name for “amnesty” which will bring in extended family members and elderly parents who have not paid into the system but will be able to benefit from the hard work of American taxpayers.

    And let’s not forget the most impact on our economy by illegal aliens is when they are sending $24 billion back home to Mexico each year which means $24 billion earned in the country going into Mexico economy and not back into ours and not helping the infrastructure of this country.

    5 million illegal aliens who should not have been sold homes, defaulted on their mortgages they did not quality for last year taken advantage of by greedy and corrupt lenders was a direct impact on our failing economy.

    Illegal immigration asks too much from the American taxpayers and we are just not willing and able to take on at this time. Enforcement of all of immigration laws is all we are will to settle for and nothing less.

    The impact is quite personal for me and many senior citizens who are on limited incomes and who are helping their families to survive. When my son-in-law who is not selling any cars are not bringing home a check and the “lot boy” who is in this country illegally and does not speak English is still bring home a check each week.

    My advice to someone who talks like Bill Ritter is to give more of your taxes to take care of the needs of illegal aliens.
    American taxpayers are being left behind the needs of illegal aliens. Comprehensive Immigration Reform will not bring them out of the shadows because they are not in the shadows they are in the midst of all of our lives. In the schools, on the jobs, in our emergency rooms, etc.

    Obama is building a case for Comprehensive Immigration Reform as we speak with Napolitano, Richardson, and many others.

    Governor Ritter thinks this situation is "exaggerated"? I live in Colorado. I don't know what he was responding to specifically, but in general, illegal aliens have made huge impacts on this society and this state and anyone over the age of forty has got to notice the changes. I have to wonder were Bill gets his facts. If anything, the situation is minimized. Politicians better know, damned sure. Not minimize it even more.

    I think it is exaggerated as well but would welcome some credible statistics.

    There's the truth, then there's "statistics". Ravi. I don't think you want the truth. I'm here to tell ya. You already seem to have your mind made up. That sarcasm and inquisitiveness of yours, quite a mix. I live with these " exaggerations" , and they...are quite real. You should try it. You won't like it. Screw statistics. Live the dream, sweetheart.

    No offense, Squishy, but I've lived with the exaggerations all my life. Feel free to provide some actual truth, otherwise keep whining.

    I was asking you because I am willing to have my ideas challenged. I am sincerely interested in your point of view.

    If you'd rather not tell me, fine. I did not ask you these questions to mock you.

    Show me where I am mocking you.

    I'm not your enemy. I'm just an opinionated poster. You may know more about the immigration issue than I do. I'm willing to come around to your point of view.

    Sky: I was never your enemy. Stories? Tell me yours, please. What does this mean to you personally? It must mean something, or you wouldn't be here.
