I understand where you're coming from. My part of the country (New Mexico) has been dealing with this same problem for decades; however, Obama and his Democrat cronies have deliberately forced us to "host" these illegals and give them benefits, including voting rights. Several of these people have brought diseases with them that we didn't have a problem with before, such as TB. Many of the worst criminals, most from Mexico, are here. My state is almost broke thanks to Obama.
To top things off, there is now the possibility that ISIS plans to smuggle nuclear weapons INTO the United States by way of our unprotected southern border. All this while Obama kisses the butts of our enemies and stabs America in the back.
Hang in there, Elizabeth. We the People will take back our country and our enemies will be destroyed.
