Illegal immigration is economic treason committed by our elected officials who refuse to obey the rule of law. They give democracy a black eye who leadership is a disgrace to us all,who's immoral and unethical leadership will bring choas to this nation. Democracy has failed to protect this nation from those who would use our history to emotionally blackmail this nation into obediance by the wealthy who depend on socialism for the rich and cold blooded capitalism for the poor! The non-wealthy have become a slush fund for the few!
