    For crying out loud. I have known some illegal aliens in the past, this people want nothing more than to better themselves and help their families back home.

      living and working where they want to live and work are some of the grave injustices of our time.

      If there's some area that's environmentally fragile, OK, use density restrictions, parks, etc. to keep people out.

      But a human being is a human being. People who aren't in prison should be able to live where they want to live, period.

      Because illegal workers are easy to exploit and underpay, which creates a downward pressure on the prevailing wage and work environment.

      Basically, hassling the illegal workforce helps the bottom line.

      I had the blues so bad one time, it put my face in a permanent frown- but I'm feelin' so much better I can cakewalk into town..
