The United States is a country that was built on immigration. Nearly every one of us decends from an immigrant at some point in our ancestry. For this reason, people are often slow to take action against those immigrants that are in our country illegally. Unfortunately, housing these illegal immigrants forces us to pay a steep cost. The state of California has been in dire straits economically ever since the energy crisis of 2000, and the precense of over 3 million illegal immigrants is only making the situation worse. Illegal immigrants cost California and its taxpayers billions of dollars annually, while taking up vital space in public schools, hospitals, and even prisons.
