    The answer to "why",changes with every person and government agency answering. It just depends on who is being asked, look at Kize's list by her estimates illegals can be blamed from the extinction of dinosaurs to the end of man.

    The list she present can be deconstructed. First she or whatever site she plagiarized listed "Increased Crime" I think it is redundant to list animal abuse, child endangerment/molestation and document fraud the first three crimes listed along with others as crimes. Is this a list of "problems" or does it just subsume the partial list of specific crimes for a more "wowing" effect.

    Secondly to list "Disrespect for American Laws" along with "Day Laborers loitering and creating public hazards", "Farm animals with in city limits" and "Gangs, Graffiti, Drugs, Cartels, Smugglers, and Violence" again, only a few listed, to me shows reasoning why the problem of "Disrespect for American Laws" exists.

    I think the list she uses is not only redundant but is supernumerary in it's presentation as a "list".

    Are illegals playing loud circus music all day and all night without requested police intervention? Have you found an illegal and at times with family hiding/living in your basement/garage?

    Are those funny, they are both questions repeatedly asked on the Yahoo immigration section. Many times disproved but a regular posting to show "Disrespect for American Laws".

    The best answer in my opinion is the one the based on how it is affecting you. Slow it down to what you see with your eyes or hear with your ears, look at those next to you or those that cross in and out of your public life encounters. Now ask yourself are illegals a problem in my life?

    As for the bigger picture you ask for, that answer is what you find when you become involved and aware of a city, state,national or global view. I do not believe one can fully take the answer/opinion of another to answer why illegals are such a big problem to the United States but must involve themselves for an answer that is clearer on the impingement effect on your life.

    I have very little respect for them because they don't respect the law and go through the process they are supposed to. I have become a bit more sympathetic towards them since the insane cartel violence down in Mexico(anyone in their right mind would want to get away from it) I am also sympathetic towards illegal immigrants from Cuba (although I'll admit I am a bit biased because I do have ancestors from Cuba) Regardless of my sympathy though I do consider illegal immigration consider a slap in the face to my ancestors who immigrated here legally from many countries including Italy, Ireland, Cuba, and Russia

    Besides their illegal entry into this country being morally wrong many of them also "skip out" on hospital bills and clog up the emergency room with things that should be handled at ordinary doctors offices(common colds/the flu, check-ups, physicals,vaccinations) because they know hospitals can't refuse to treat you.(since many of them don't have health insurance) That money adds up and adds to our debt because somone as to "pick up the tab".

    People say that crime is also a problem of illegal immigration but I believe that most of the illegal immigrants who commit crimes would commit those crimes regardless of whether or not they immigrated legally or not so I don't think it is an illegal immigration problem as much as it is a problem with the society/environment they grew up in.

    The cost to take care of them. Go to your local Emergency Room and see who is there and imagine who is paying for this. Being illegals there is usually no way to collect income tax from them. I would not be against issuing them green cards for work as long as their children would not be automatic citizens if they are born here.

    Why would you say such a silly thing, Princess Trolly?

    Illegal aliens are probably not even in the top 10 of our country's problems.

    I accept as true with the poster above. what's the objective of your question? in spite of if the conflict in Iraq has extra result or the unlawful extraterrestrial beings has a much bigger result concerns no longer in the slightest. They the two could desire to be dealt with NOW!! If somebody says one has a much bigger result than the different, does that recommend we could desire to continually forget approximately with regard to the single with the smaller result?? could we forget approximately approximately handbag snatchers via fact homicide and rape is a miles extra severe crime? a rustic the size of usa of america could desire to "multitask". We could desire to handle a large number of themes concurrently, the two enormous and small, if we are to outlive as a rustic. So in case you're insinuating we could desire to continually no longer "complication approximately" the unlawful alien concern for now via fact on your view the conflict in Iraq has a much bigger result on the U. S. financial equipment, you're incorrect. in case you're insinuating that we could desire to continually forget approximately with regard to the concern of unlawful extraterrestrial beings...and bury our heads in the sand and desire it is going to go away via fact on your OPINION we've larger themes to handle, you're ineffective incorrect!!

    Because we allow their anchor babies to be citizens.

    Because we give them welfare, section 8, AFDC, TANF, free public education, medicade, free emergency rooms for their runny noses, and tax free jobs.

    Because we essentially pay them to be illegal immigrants.
