Well I am watching the President talk about Mexicos President and something came to my mind. This country was built on immigration, the first immigrants landed on Plymouth Rock many years ago and have kept coming. Unless you are a Native American your ancestors and mine were immigrants. Immigrants have built great country. Here is where you may get upset with me. The difference is those immigrants all contributed to the building UP of this country, that is not what is happening now. In 2009 illigal immigration cost Arizona 2.7 billion, yes that is billion dollars, we all know that there was probably more spent or lost that was not counted. See the difference? the first immigrants went through the proper channels to become legal citizens to build this country. We lived in Arizona for thirteen years, we have seen the effects of illigal immigration. I don't have a problem with them, some have become good lifelong friends, just do it the right way and become citizens and contributing members of this great country.
